About Web Hosting

What is web hosting?

Web hosting is generally used to publish websites on the internet. If you build a website, you need to upload it to a web hosting service, so that other people online can see it.

Our website hosting gives you space on a server connected to the internet. When you put files in this area, people can access them from the internet - so your website can be seen across the world.

We offer hosting packages which cater for all sorts of sites. Our servers are connected 24/7, and we monitor them round-the-clock, so the sites we host stay online day and night.

What can I do with web hosting?

We'll resist saying the possibilities are endless but, er, they are pretty broad. With our hosting packages, you can publish whatever you like online (as long as it doesn't contravene our terms and conditions).

Many people use our hosting for personal or hobby websites. And our hosting packages are ideal if you're running a business and want to launch a website for it.

Or maybe you want to set up a blog or forum. We now offer database and scripting options so you can install blogging software like Wordpress and forum packages too - allowing you to let the world know what you think or build and online community.

Do I need any technical knowledge to use web hosting?

We've made it as simple as possible for you to get your site up and running. You'll be able to manage your hosting account through the simple control panel. It includes an online file manager which makes editing your website files easy.

Having said that, you will need some knowledge how websites work in order to build your website. It'll also help if you know a bit about FTP (file transfer protocol), as that's the easiest way to upload files to your website.

We offer loads of useful advice to help you get your site online. But if you'd rather not get involved in coding, try our easy-to-use site builder (soon). Anyone can quickly create a site - technical knowledge is not a requirement!
