The internet is a web of servers and computers that communicate through Domain Name Systems (DNS). Web Browsers retrieve the website files by entering a domain name. A domain name serves as a web address. The space in a server located in multiple datacentres – of providers – globally is web hosting. Web Hosting is where the website files, programming codes, databases, and more are stored.
Yes, website files can be stored or hosted on a home computer but, it cannot provide availability and uptime a server can provide to service a website 24/7. For your website to work round-the-clock, you need a Web Hosting for it.
Choosing a reliable web hosting provider for your business is integral in boosting your brand and online presence.
Looking for a Web Hosting provider requires research. It is best to note its performance and reliability.
You need to have web hosting that distributes memory and resources to maintain services online. Looking for a website hosting provider that uses cloud computing can be advantageous. Cloud computing is the use of remote servers in a network within the internet to store, manage and process data. This ensures that server failures do not result in the services getting offline.
Look for a web host that uses Solid State Drive (SSD) memory in their server. Unlike the older version called Hard Disk Drive (HDD), SSD magnetically stores data. This technology helps in retrieving files up to 300% faster than HDD. When the memory loads quickly, the website works swiftly and smoothly.
Yes. It is best to start with the basic hosting plan and eventually upgrade as you grow your business.
Our web hosting plans allow you to upgrade anytime you need more resources. You can contact us to discuss the best option for an upgrade.
Our Web Hosting is a shared service. A server can hold up to 2000 websites because of how powerful they are. Sharing the server with other clients allows you to use its resources without paying a high price while maintaining optimal performance.
Just like any machine, we do not overload our servers. Despite its power, a server can only hold up to a limit. Limiting our servers' hard drive and memory usage at a maximum capacity of 80% ensures that all the websites can handle high traffic while maintaining their performance.
We will not be able to help you with third-party scripts. Instead, our support team, who are constantly trained in using our system, can help you ensure that there is no problem with the server. The programming and scripting languages supported by our system take years to study as it supports many of them.
Despite this, our customer care team goes above and beyond to help you in any way possible. They will be glad to check resources to help you.
Still, it is best to refer scripting issues to your developer. They can give you answers to questions about scripts and programming languages.
Our system keeps a backup of your website for internal reasons but creating your own backup is highly encouraged. You can create your backup either weekly or daily, depending on your preference. Doing this will give you the security of an updated backup because we cannot guarantee that our system backup will be the most recent.
Automate your backups if you cannot do it manually.
Yes. You can cancel and get your money back within 60 days. You don't have to pay for something that was not used and won't be of use. The credit will show in your account should you use this guarantee.
However, the guarantee will only cover our services, not the domains. Domain names are purchased directly from the registries. Meaning, once a domain name gets registered after purchase, cancellation is no longer possible from the registries’ end. They also do not give refunds for registered domains.
You can contact us if you need further clarification.
Yes. Look for a Web Host where the datacentre is close to your location. The physical distance of the server still affects the speed of data transmission. Even when electronic communications are instant, and the difference is a fraction of a second, you need to take every advantage that you can.
