Adding extra websites to your existing plan is an extremely cost-effective way of adding extra sites. Contact our support team to find out more details
What is a domain name?
A domain name is the address that users type in their web browsers to access your website (e.g., www.yourwebsite.com). Web hosting and domain registration are separate services, but HostFast offer domain registration as part of our packages. You can also transfer an existing domain to your HostFast account.
What is a content management system (CMS)?
A content management system is a software application that allows you to create, manage, and modify the content on your website without requiring technical expertise. If you can send an email you can use a CMS. Popular CMS options include WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. All of these, and quite a few more, are available with your HostFast Web Hosting plan. Ask our support team for more details.
What is SSL and do I need one?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a security protocol that encrypts the data transmitted between a website and its visitors. It ensures that sensitive information, such as personal details and payment data, remains secure from potential attackers. Having an SSL certificate is crucial, especially if you have an e-commerce site or handle user data. It not only protects your visitors but also instills trust and credibility in your website. Here at HostFast we offer an SSL certificate as part of your hosting package.
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows individuals and organizations to make their websites accessible on the internet. It's like renting a piece of land where you can build and display your website. As the web hosting provider HostFast stores your website files on our powerful computers called servers, which are connected to the internet 24/7. This ensures that your website is always available for visitors to view.
Do I need web hosting for my website?
If you want people around the world to see your website, then yes you do. Web hosting is essential for any website to be accessible online. Without web hosting, your website files would have nowhere to reside, and people wouldn't be able to access your site using a domain name.
What types of web hosting are available?
There are various types of web hosting to suit different needs. Shared hosting is the most common and affordable option, where multiple websites share server resources. VPS hosting provides more dedicated resources and flexibility, while dedicated hosting offers an entire server for a single website. Cloud hosting utilizes multiple servers for improved reliability, and managed WordPress hosting is specifically designed for WordPress-powered sites. Ask our support team for more details.
How much web hosting space do I need?
The amount of web hosting space you require depends on the size of your website and the number of files it contains. Most small to medium-sized websites can comfortably fit within a few gigabytes of storage. If you have a lot of multimedia content or anticipate significant growth, you willneed more. Your Web Hosting plan here at HostFast is unlimited so you won't have to worry about running out of space.
What is bandwidth and how much do I need?
Bandwidth refers to the amount of data transferred between your website and its visitors. It includes file downloads, page views, emails, etc. The required bandwidth depends on your website's traffic volume and content. For a new or small website, a hosting plan with a few hundred gigabytes of monthly bandwidth should be sufficient. High-traffic or data-intensive websites may require hosting plans with unlimited or higher bandwidth limits. Here at HostFast your Web Hosting plan is unlimited so you will never have to worry about bandwidth limits.
Can I transfer my existing website to HostFast?
Yes, you can transfer your existing website to HostFast. It can be a complicated task but the good news is that we will take care of everything for you. The process involves migrating your website files, databases, and configurations from the current hosting environment to HostFast and then setting up and configuring your website here on your new account.
