FAQs

What is Hosting?
Hosting refers to providing the hardware and software platform on top of which customers can deploy web sites and web-based applications.
What is Shared Hosting?
Shared hosting is a form of web hosting in which many web hosting customers share a single (virtual or physical) server. The customers in a shared hosting environment are partitioned away from each other, they have absolutely no access to each other’s files.
What is VPS Hosting?
A VPS is a virtual private server. It is a type of hosting plan in which you, has complete control over a virtual server. With a VPS plan you get most of the benefits of a dedicated server, at a much lower cost. In the case of our VPS hosting, you also have the ability to scale up available resources quickly as the need increases.
What is vCPU, RAM and SSD?
A virtual CPU (vCPU) also known as a virtual processor, is a physical central processing unit (CPU) that is assigned to a virtual machine (VM). RAM: Random Access Memory. In hosting when using a CMS like WordPress, for example, the server loads the service into memory and leaves it ready for use. When someone visits your site, the information that is in memory is used. A CMS also consumes memory for management tasks such as editing a post, installing a theme or plugin, downloading and uploading, and more. The difference between a low-memory server and one with a lot: The ability to provide information. In times of peak traffic, when many users are browsing your site, more memory will be required. If your site does not have the amount of memory compatible with traffic, it may be slow or even inoperable. In summary, the more memory in your hosting, the greater the server’s ability to perform concurrent tasks, such as handling increased traffic on the site. <mark<SSD: is a solid-state drive. This is a technology that replaces the more conventional spinning disk drive (the type of hard drive you might have in your desktop computer). SSDs are more expensive than spinning magnetic disk drives, and they have a lower information density (they take up more room — making them more expensive to store en masse). But they have one big advantage: they are much faster than conventional spinning drives. cost. In the case of our VPS hosting, you also have the ability to scale up available resources quickly as the need increases.
What is the difference between Shared Hosting and a VPS?
Performance: When you share server resources with others, you’ll face some limitations. While no single account will impact another’s experience, there will be maximum available CPUs, memory/RAM, and disk space. Your website will not be able to use resources beyond the maximum allowed. A VPS hosting plan is almost always going to be faster than a shared hosting plan simply because your users don’t have to queue up with other sites’ visitors to access yours. VPS hosting offers more computing resources and processing power, which will boost the speed of most sites and, thus, make consumers more likely to convert. If your site is relatively small, a shared hosting plan will likely do fine. If your site is larger or is relied on for business and revenue growth, however, you’ll probably notice the difference. Security:In a shared hosting environment, there is typically more risk for security breaches simply because there are more sites — and more websites equals more opportunities for attackers. Websites that deal with a lot of user data or payment information may benefit from choosing VPS hosting. You can think of the differences in security levels by considering what it would be like to purchase home security. Basic options come with a few sensors and signs that deter people from breaking in. More sophisticated options, however, include cameras and other monitoring devices that provide additional protection — this is more like a VPS hosting environment. We offer Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates on all domains we host, meaning that data passed through each site is always safely encrypted.
Do you have a system to monitor website 24/7 and what is your uptime?
We provide a reactive hosting service for all websites and offer a 99.99% uptime. We monitor uptime and downtime performances on daily basis. We do not constantly check the websites we host to ensure they are functioning correctly as routine use, maintenance and software updates can affect website functions. It is therefore the responsibility of the client to ensure their website is operating as it should.
Can you migrate my website from another provider and how long it takes?
We can migrate your website from another provider free of charge, and it usually takes 3 business days for this process to be completed.
Which CMS (Content Management System) can I host on your hosting packages?
Our packages support more than 60 different CMS apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart, Craft, Drupal, Concrete5, Magento.

FAQs

What is HTTPS?
HTTPS is secure HTTP. It is the protocol used when communicating with a website over SSL.
What is SSL and why it is important?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers and the data of their websites’ visitors. If a website has HTTP instead of HTTPS, then the browser will send all the information as plain text to the web server. If anyone is watching the web traffic, they will be able to see that information. If the website has a SSL certificate installed and using HTTPS, then the web traffic will be encrypted. This is of great importance for collecting any customer’s sensitive information. Lastly, Google has incentives for websites that have SSL certificates installed. And helping Google to rank your website higher should be at the top of your list.
What is LetsEncrypt SSL?
Let's Encrypt is a security service supported by several major IT companies such as Google, Facebook, Cisco and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) guarantees a secure connection when you visit a particular website. It ensures that while surfing, the connection between the website and the user is encrypted.
Which SSL is better for me?
How to choose a certificate: - Identify the property types you wish to protect (domain, sub-domain). - Identify if you need protection for a single property or multiple properties (wildcard or multiple domain). - Then, decide which level of protection you need. domain-validated — LOW organization-validated — MEDIUM extended validation — HIGH
