FAQs

What is web hosting?

Web Hosting is a service that allocates space and resources on a server specifically for the files that make up your website. It allows you to publish your website on the internet so your audience can access it and view it.

Your files are stored on a server. A server is basically a very powerful computer that stores those files, but also is designed to deliver them to your visitor’s web browser. The server where your website’s files are stored is given an IP address. This IP address allows your visitors’ computers to find your website to view it.

What Is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting, also sometimes referred to as virtual hosting, is a web hosting environment where each individual hosting account is stored on a single web server. Think of a web server as a very powerful computer loaded with resources. Each of the accounts on the server shares the server’s system resources. These resources include disk space, data transfer and server processing power.

Shared Hosting offers you an affordable solution to get your web site up and running because all the related server hosting costs are shared and spread out among the other users/accounts who are being hosted on that server.

Is A Shared Web Hosting Account Right For Me?

Shared hosting is a perfect platform if you have modest website needs. In particular, this means if you are just starting a website, have a small business website or just run a website as a hobby with minimal resource needs. Shared Web Hosting is also a popular option if you run a simple blog or forum. In short, Shared Hosting is ideal if you have small websites or are just getting started since it is a good learning environment to get your “ feet wet” with a minimal investment.

What is VPS hosting?

VPS is an abbreviation for “virtual private server”. A VPS works by dividing a physical server into separate virtual machines. Each of these virtual machines, or virtual private servers, operate completely independently from one another. In other words, each VPS has its own operating system as well as allocation of resources like RAM, CPU and disk space. This provides you with an environment that closely mimics that of a Dedicated Server, without the costs associated with it.

What are the advantages of choosing VPS hosting?

There are many advantages to choosing VPS Hosting over competing solutions. These advantanges include:

  • Improved Performance & Isolation – You don’t share resources with other users meaning your audience will enjoy your enhanced website performance in a VPS environment.
  • More Control & Customization – Root access allows you to configure server settings to fully match your hosting needs.
  • Cost Effectiveness – You get to experience most of the benefits of a Dedicated Server, without the cost.
  • Highly Scalable – As your site becomes more popular, you can also easily increase your VPS’ resources to keep up with growth.
  • Ability To Host Resource Intensive Software – Some software is not compatible in a Shared Hosting environment as it needs more resources to run properly. A VPS offers those additional resources.
How do I know if a VPS is right for me?

The need to handle increased traffic as your site grows in popularity is probably the main reason why you’re considering VPS Hosting. If your website has begun to experience a consistent increase in the number of daily visitors, it is the perfect time for you to consider moving into a VPS Hosting solution.

However, there are a number of additional reasons to consider VPS Hosting including:

  • You are running more than one site and you want additional resources to power them.
  • You want greater control over your sites’ privacy and security.
  • You’re have a revenue generating business or e-commerce website.
  • You want to run resource intensive software that is not supported on Shared Hosting plans.
  • You require root access for your server.
  • You want more control over your server and want to configure it to your specific needs.
  • You are developing sites for a number of clients.
