Frequently Asked Questions Hosting

We answer questions about every aspect of web hosting from domain names to platforms to applications to development.

What is Web Hosting?
  • Web hosting is a service provided by companies (the web host) as in BestKnownHost that sell or lease space on a server where you store the files that make your website accessible on the internet. These companies typically require that you own a domain, and they may help you purchase one. Web hosting is also discribed as the data storage service that maintains user-friendly websites. Every online website has a host server and almost everyone uses a web host to manage the storage. However, not all web hosts offer the same quality. The best measures for the success of a host are their uptime, data speed and amount of transfer. You can pay more often to get data transferred more quickly. Most web host provides unmetered bandwidth and disc room for shared hosting packages.

How does web hosting work?
  • Once you purchase a BestKnownHost Web hosting plan, we store your site on our servers and assign it a unique DNS. The DNS is the address that allows people around the world to access your website. This unique address is required in order for people to view your site. Furthermore, by purchasing a website hosting package, you're buying space on our servers. It’s similar to the space on the hard drive of a computer, and being on our server allows your website files to be accessed from anywhere in the world.

What kind of web hosting do I need?
  • Shared hosting is a popular hosting option where a provider like BestKnownHost, hosts multiple websites on one physical web server. Typically, most websites don't use many server resources, so shared hosting lets providers offer a stable service at a low cost. If you decide that shared hosting is right for you, you’ll need to decide which type of shared hosting you prefer. We offer three shared hosting solutions: Linux plans using cPanel, Windows plans using Plesk and WordPress Hosting. Shared hosting allows you to share hosting space and costs with others, while benefitting from the speed and space you need for your small business website.

What is PCI compliance?
  • The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS or PCI for short) is a set of requirements intended to ensure that all companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. That means, entities that store, process or transmit credit card information are expected to be compliant to the standards in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.

What is Plesk for hosting?
  • Plesk is the shortened name for the Parallels Plesk Panel, a popular control panel used in web hosting. It offers host customers a user-friendly graphical interface that makes website management easier for novice users and companies alike. The way it's designed also makes web hosting simple. One major difference between the Plesk and cPanel web hosting control panels is that Plesk is available on both Windows Server and Linux distributions, whereas cPanel is only available on Linux operating systems (although some backdoor methods are available to run cPanel on Windows servers).

What is cPanel for hosting?
  • cPanel is one of the most popular web hosting control panels that provides a web hosting customer/owner a user interface intended to help them easily manage their website and shared server. It allows users to create websites using a variety of content management systems (CMS) including WordPress, Drupal, Magento and Joomla.

What is a Domain Name?
  • The actual website name is a domain name, and the domain name of each website. You have to buy one via a domain registrar to get one. Domains, depending on the contract and the domain popularity, can cost from a few pounds a year to hundreds of thousands of pounds a year. Actually, each domain name indicates a series of numbers, an IP (Internet Protocol). Domain names are easily recorded alias for visitors as most people do not remember 10 digits in perfect order., and Google's IP address is probably the most famous domain name... What's easier to remember for you?

What exactly is bandwidth, and how much of it do you require?
  • Bandwidth is the quantity of information accessed during website viewing. Data are transmitted every time a user views a website, and bandwidth measurement is taken. Images, audio files, and video files are usually larger than text in bandwidth. That means that if you have a website with a greater weight compared to somebody with a simple text-only site or someone with just a few low-resolution images, for example if you have much video or streaming audio. Certain web hosts have unlimited bandwidth and a cap is on them.

Shared Hosting vs VPS Hosting what’s the difference?
  • As previously said, in shared hosting, the server's services (RAM, CPU, and so on) are shared among several clients. Your data is still hosted on a common server with VPS Hosting (Virtual Private Server Hosting), but you are allotted a pre-defined amount of server capacity solely based on your VPS contract. Consider it like having VIP entry to a party. You line up for the same show as everyone else, but you have exclusive access and support. You'll never be in contention for server capacity because you'll already have a dedicated number of resources set aside for your account.

Is it necessary for me to have a thorough understanding of shared hosting?
  • No, it's not true. In reality, we have outstanding customer service and will assist you at any time if you need assistance or have a concern about your hosting service. We will assist you with everything from deciding on the right solution for you to investigating any problems you might have. Getting some level of experience is unquestionably beneficial, but it is by no means necessary.

Is it possible for you to assist me in transferring from my new web host?
  • Yes, we certainly will! We'll take care of it for you. For all wordpress powered websites, we have a FREE site switch. Before contacting us, don't cancel your existing account with the other host. You must first order web hosting from BestKnownHost. Then, go to your BestKnownHost cPanel dashboard and open a help ticket, explaining your current situation as soon as possible, and we'll take care of the rest.
