Web hosting is a service that allows website owners to deliver their site content to others via the internet. While a domain name offers the “coordinates” so to speak on how to connect users to the website they are looking for, web hosting is the service that translates all of the words, images, and files that make up the website into an actual web page. Web hosting plans take a site’s features and allow it to be accessible on the world wide web.
How does web hosting work?
Hosting lets website owners access web servers, which respond to browser requests to access a page and deliver the web page and content the visitor is trying to access to them. Think of it as a database that stores your website's information and delivers it to users who want to view it on the web.
How much does web hosting cost?
The price of website hosting depends on the plan that you choose. We offer several low price options to help you purchase a hosting plan that suits your needs. We also offer several cheap options for our WordPress hosting plans as well. You want to be wary of services that offer free website hosting as they often have much lower uptimes compared to paid plans (so your website may go offline without your knowledge) and you’re more likely to be sharing space on an already crowded server. Shared hosting plans tend to be less expensive than dedicated or cloud hosting plans, but work just fine for a number of websites.
Does Name.com provide hosting security?
Secure web hosting is the ability of a hosting provider to protect your website and information from hackers, malware, and malicious code. At Name.com, we automate website backups, regularly monitor our servers and network components, and actively deter users who use their websites for nefarious purposes. By choosing Name.com web hosting, you can rest assured that your web hosting is in good hands.
What should I look for in a hosting provider?
Although there are many factors you should consider, the most important qualities to look for in a web host are flexible options for bandwidth and the number of websites you can host, a high percentage of guaranteed uptime, and regular backups. The ability to scale your website as it attracts more visitors over time makes it convenient to upgrade on an as-needed basis. Excellent uptime is important to ensure that your website does not experience regular down time, which prevents visitors from seeing your site. You also want to use a hosting provider like Name.com that offers free hosting backups on basic plans as opposed to those who charge extra for the feature. Learn more
What’s the difference between shared server and dedicated server hosting?
A dedicated server means that your website is the only one on the server. These are a higher-cost option that should only be used by those with significant amounts of traffic or experienced users who want hands-on control over their server. We use shared servers for this hosting offering which means that several websites share a single server. This is a lower cost option that still provides a high level of performance for most users.
What is disk space?
Disk space is the amount of content on your website, including individual web pages, graphics, video, and more. The greater the amount of content you host through your website, the more disk space you’ll need. As your website grows and you continue to add more pages, you may need to upgrade your hosting plan to allow for additional disk space.
Can I transfer my existing website to Name.com hosting?
Yes! If you want to migrate your current hosting plan to Name.com, you can do so by updating your DNS records or asking your current registrar to change your website’s name servers. You do not have to have your domain at Name.com to use our web hosting product, but having all of your domains and products under one registrar can certainly be more convenient. Learn more
