Web Hosting FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about website hosting services.

Web hosting is a service that enables your website to be accessible on the internet. This service offers a secure online environment to store various elements of your website, including code, images, text, and other content. In essence, a hosting plan is necessary to ensure your site is operational and available to everyone.

The most popular website hosting services for both personal and business purposes are as follows:

Shared Web Hosting: Numerous websites share a single server, with each user allocated a specific amount of storage space and resources. Shared hosting is the most cost-effective option, making it an excellent choice for beginners and bloggers.

WordPress Hosting: Similar to shared hosting, but Managed WordPress hosting plans provide tools and features specifically designed to enhance the speed, performance, and maintenance of your WordPress website.

VPS Hosting: This type of hosting service divides a physical server into multiple virtual machines, offering each user dedicated resources and full root access. VPS hosting plans cater more to tech-savvy users requiring greater power and control.

Cloud Hosting: Websites operate on multiple virtual servers, minimizing potential downtime and hardware failures. Cloud hosting plans are ideal for those seeking stable website uptime and performance, such as freelance web developers with multiple clients.

In addition, it's essential to verify whether your chosen web host includes a website builder or supports your preferred content management system (CMS) to simplify the website creation process.

At Hostking, we provide a website builder, a 1-click WordPress installer, and high-speed hosting with 99.9% uptime at an exceptionally competitive price. Begin with shared web hosting and progress to cloud plans for increased power, or opt for VPS plans when seeking a customized solution.

If you're uncertain about the best web hosting plan for your requirements, click the chat button to chat to one of our expert consultants.

Acquiring a web hosting plan with Hostking is a straightforward process. Simply scroll up to view the pricing table, select one of the web hosting packages, and click the "Add to Cart" button.

Upon reaching the checkout page, choose a subscription period. While monthly payments are an option for our web hosting services, we recommend opting for longer plans as they provide better value for your investment.

Following this, either create a new Hostking account or log in to your existing one, and choose a payment method. Provide your personal information and click the "Submit Secure Payment" button to complete the registration process.

Once the payment is finalized, you will receive login details to access your hosting account. From there, you can efficiently manage multiple websites, domains, email accounts, databases, files, and more. 

Hostking stands out among web hosting providers by offering live chat support through various channels such as the website, WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook, and Instagram. Whatever assistance you require, the Customer Success team at Hostking comprises experts ready to go above and beyond to swiftly resolve your issues.

If you find yourself in need of help, feel free to reach out via live chat.

Additionally, we provide an extensive database of Hostking Tutorials that cover a range of topics, including website troubleshooting, search engine optimization, digital marketing best practices, and more. This valuable resource is designed to empower users with the knowledge and skills needed for successful website management.

At Hostking, every hosting plan, with the exception of Micro, includes a complimentary domain when ordered for a duration of one year or longer.

If you already possess a domain from another registrar, you can easily link it to Hostking by pointing it to Hostking's nameservers. Consolidating your hosting account and domain within a single web hosting company simplifies the management of your website and facilitates troubleshooting in case of any issues.

Web hosting is a service that stores websites and enables their accessibility on the internet. Conversely, a domain name serves as a website's address, like hostking.co.in. Both are vital components for establishing a fully operational website.

In the absence of a hosting plan, you would have to convert your computer into a website server, demanding a profound technical grasp and incurring substantial maintenance costs. Similarly, without domains, users would have to rely on an IP address to visit your website, a less user-friendly and impractical approach.

Certainly! We provide complimentary unlimited website migration with zero downtime.

Before transferring WordPress websites from other hosting providers to Hostking, it's essential to first secure one of our managed WordPress hosting plans. Following that, you can use Client Area or live chat to request transfer your website's files.

If you're not using a typical Content Management System (CMS) or require assistance during the migration process, our Customer Success team will readily assist you at no extra charge.

In brief, yes. Although WordPress itself is a free content management system, you must purchase a hosting plan and a domain name separately to establish a WordPress website.

For cost savings, you may want to explore hosting your sites with our managed WordPress hosting. All plans include a domain name when ordered for one year or longer, a 1-click WordPress installation tool, and unlimited SSL certificates.

Moreover, your WordPress site will benefit from speed optimization features like LiteSpeed and Object Cache, automated updates, and integrated AI tools to enhance content creation speed.

Certainly! With our Softaculous Auto-Installer tool, you can effortlessly install over 100 apps with just a single click. This auto-installer streamlines the process, making it quicker and more straightforward to experiment with various scripts and discover the most suitable ones for your website.

Absolutely! Each shared hosting package includes either DirectAdmin or cPanel. These control panels are designed to assist you in managing your hosting account efficiently. They allow you to monitor resource usage, create email addresses, and facilitate the installation of a content management system (CMS).

It's important to note that a control panel is distinct from the admin panel of your website, which is typically created during the installation of a CMS. For instance, the WordPress dashboard serves as a well-known example of such an admin panel.
