What is web hosting?

Web hosting is a service that allows customers to host their web site on the Internet. A web host provides the technologies and services needed for web sites to be viewed on the Internet. In short, web hosting is a service that can be best described as providing a home for your web site.

What do your web hosting plans offer?

Our web hosting plans house your web site on a powerful and professionally managed server at a low monthly cost. Ideally suited to small- and medium-scale web sites and e-commerce sites, these plans provide an excellent web hosting solution for individuals, groups, and small businesses.

What is a reseller?

A reseller is someone who buys a single, large hosting plan and sub-divides the alloted disk space, data transfer, domain support, and other features into smaller plans that are sold or distributed to others. Reselling keeps costs low and allows greater freedom and flexibility, but also brings the responsibility of providing support for clients. Find out about our reseller plans or see our reseller FAQ for more details.

Do I have to be a big company to need web hosting?

No! Our web hosting plans are popular among beginners, hobbyists, and small businesses because they provide a reliable web presence without the need of advanced technical skills. Customers benefit from a suite of web services like domain name registration and e-mail accounts, enabling quick web site deployment, powerful resources, and low cost. You get reliability, technical expertise, and fast broadband connections at an affordable price.

Why can't I do this myself from home?

Although you can do this yourself, it will not be worth your time and money. Outsourcing your web presence transfers the responsibility of maintaining your web site from yourself to a more experienced and well trained proffesional organization. Maintaining your own web site sytems and getting equivalent high speed connections can cost thousands of dollars per month.
