Frequently Asked Questions Hosting

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

What is hosting?
  • Websites are stored – or “hosted” – on a publicly-accessible computer (a server). Some websites require an entire server to themselves. Others can share a server with 100s of other websites. The storage space, and the features that come with it, make up your hosting plan.

What is shared web hosting?
  • BestKnownHost shared website hosting is a popular hosting option where a BestKnownHost hosts multiple websites on one physical web server. Typically, most websites don't use many server resources, so shared hosting lets BestKnownHost 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. BestKnownHost offers three shared hosting solutions: (1) Linux plans using cPanel, (2) Windows plans using Plesk and (3) WordPress Hosting. Shared hosting allows you to share hosting space and costs with others, while benefitting from the security, speed and space you need for your small business website.

What exactly is a server?
  • A BestKnownHost server is a computer that connects other web users to your site from anywhere in the world. As the name implies, BestKnownHost has the servers, connectivity, and associated services to host websites. By offering a variety of hosting plans, BestKnownHost cover the spectrum of hosting needs, from small blogs and large organizations and more.

What kind of web hosting do I need?
  • Depending on the what you want to do with your website, we offer Windows and Linux hosting. For instance, if you want to create a shopping cart, host a podcast, or add a blog, check out Should I choose a Windows or Linux hosting account? to see which is the best fit. Or, call the GoDaddy Hosting support team. We're here to help 24/7.

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 a web hosting control panel 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 VPS hosting?
  • VPS is short for a Virtual Private Server often abbriviated as VPS. It is a step up from the BestKnownHost shared hosting website plans. Medium sized business will benefit from renting an office within a business park. With a VPS, users are isolated from each other. You have neighbors, but you are less dependant on them, and you can carry out any makeovers (customizations) as you like and organize your workstation on your own. It’s a more secure and stable solution than the BestKnownHost shared hosting solution where you don’t get a dedicated server space. However, it’s smaller-scale and cheaper than renting an entire server.

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. By purchasing a website hosting package, you're buying space our servers. It’s similar to the space on the hard drive of a computer, and the being on our server allows your website files to be accessed from anywhere.

How do I transfer my web pages to your server?
  • If you’ve built your website in a HTML editor (like Dreamweaver or Microsoft Expression Studio), upload your website files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). We have a built-in FTP File Manager for you to access in our Hosting Control Center. If your files are larger than 20 MB, we recommend using the tool FileZilla, compatible with Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® operating systems. Or, you may choose to use third-party FTP clients.

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.

What can I use to build my website?
  • There are several options to help you build your website – from hand-coding with HTML to using the BestKnownHost website builder program. If you require a high degree of functionality and versatility from your website, you’ll benefit from programs and applications that can help you build your site. BestKnownHost Web Hosting plans give you access to free, server-side applications to develop and customize your website, including popular Content Management System (CMS) applications like WordPress and Joomla!. You can also add a Dedicated IP and add an SSL Certificate later.

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.

If I already have a website, can I transfer it to your web hosting?
  • Moving your website to BestKnownHost can be as simple as 123. Access your existing website files and upload them through BestKnownHost Hosting Control Center (or via an FTP client). If you don’t have access to your website files, you should be able to request a copy of them from your current website hosting provider. If you have any questions along the way, the BestKnownHost 24/7 support team is here to assist you. We can help you determine the best method for transitioning your website to a BestKnownHost account right away.
