Shared Hosting FAQ's
What is Web Hosting?

Quick answer
To give you the quick and easy answer, hosting is our computers that are on all the time that you upload your site to and when someone types in your domain name it pulls up your site.

Long answer
Web sites are pages that are stored on a computer called a server. The server is a part of a network of computers on the internet or World Wide Web that allows users of the internet to reach your site anywhere in the world at anytime.

Host computers are configured so that when your URL or domain name is typed in, the address will use a pointer routine (look for the address from terminal to terminal) until it reaches the computer that hosts your web-site. Then, if all is okay, your web site should display itself on the users screen.
How to tell if shared hosting is right for you?

  1. You have a basic knowledge of FTP and how to navigate around the computer
  2. You have your own program that you will be using to design your website in
  3. You feel comfortable with basic tasks on the computer such as designing and coding to build a website
If you answered yes to any one or all three of these statements then you are a good fit for shared hosting

But wait, I'm still not sure?
  1. You know what root access is and you know you need it
  2. You feel that being in a shared environment will compromise the security or not meet your needs
  3. You think that your site will exceed the space requirements in a shared hosting environment
  4. You are developing software and need a deployment environment to test it on
