Frequently Asked Questions
What is meant by web hosting?
By web hosting it is meant that if you have a website and want it make it live, then you have to secure a web space on the internet that will allow you to start, publish and make the site visible to the audience. Your service provider gives you the essential resources needed to allow the visitors to connect to the site.
How can I find out which hosting service is best for my website?
To identify the right hosting solution for your website, you can talk to the service provider and also evaluate some of the following dimensions that include:
- Type of website
- The speed that you need
- Your location
- The size of your site
- Security issues
Can I expand my hosting options when my website grows?
Yes, of course. Once you have established your business and you are in need of greater storage and performance options, you can simply upgrade your hosting package based on your needs. This is attained seamlessly at IDS Web Hosting as we offer geo-redundant services and also employ the latest technologies and tools.
What is the difference between Windows and Linux web hosting?
Windows and Linux are basically two different operating systems and both the systems have their own advantages and features. They have different performance, security, database formats, pricing and other features that have a great influence on the functions of your hosting.
What is space and bandwidth?
By space it means the disk space or the storage that is required to hold your site. HTML pages are usually small but scripts, images and databases can hold huge amounts of disk space.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that the server will allow your site to transmit and is usually measured in billions of bytes. Once you have crossed your monthly limit, your site may either shut down or set a reminder for recharge.
Can you transfer my existing domain name and the site content?
Yes, our technical support team will help you to transfer your domain easily and quickly without any hassles. And the entire site content will also be transferred without any problem provided you are not under any contract with any other company that may prevent this.
How will I maintain the security of my website?
While choosing your hosting service provider, it is very important that you know about the server security both technically and physically. Using SSL, 24X7 monitoring for attacks, updating the operating system and related software are few important things for handling security.
When should I choose a dedicated server?
If you have a heavy site and expect your traffic to grow in the coming months and also want a high speed performance without any interruptions or slow down, then you can choose a dedicated server to meet your specific needs.
