Find answers to frequently asked questions about website hosting services.
Web hosting is a service that makes your website available on the internet. When you get a hosting plan, you rent space on a physical server to store all the website’s data and files.
There are many types of hosting services available, such as shared hosting, WordPress hosting, and VPS. While most web hosting providers offer similar services, the more popular a website is, the more resources it will need to function effectively.
Hostinger helps you scale your hosting plans when you need it. So, you can start with a simple hosting plan and gradually upgrade to cloud hosting or even VPS.
The most common types of hosting include:
Shared hosting. Multiple websites are hosted on the same server, and each user is allocated a certain amount of storage space and resources. Often, this is the most affordable option available, so it is an excellent option for hobbyists and bloggers.
VPS hosting. A virtual private server (VPS) setup generally uses more powerful hardware, making it possible for the web host to create a virtual partition for each user. It’s an excellent option for users with more advanced technical knowledge.
Cloud hosting. In this setup, websites run on multiple virtual or cloud servers – not just one physical server – reducing possible downtime and hardware failure. If you need access to more server power, this type of hosting service can be right for you.
Dedicated hosting. When you have a dedicated hosting plan, the server is dedicated to your website only – you don’t share storage space or resources with others. A dedicated server is usually recommended for professional web admins and developers.
Here at Hostinger, we aim to provide fast hosting with nearly 100% uptime at a truly unbeatable price.
Your website is a collection of files and (in most cases) databases shown to your visitors as they browse your site. Hostinger, like most web hosting providers, allocates storage space for your website’s files and databases on a server.
When you sign up for Hostinger’s hosting services, you’ll receive login details to access your hosting account’s admin panel – the hPanel. In hPanel, you can manage everything related to your website, from hosting to domains, databases, files, etc.
Both are essential elements for building a functional website. The difference between hosting and domain is that a domain name is the website’s address, such as hostinger.com, while hosting is a service that stores site files and makes them available on the internet.
Without domains, people would have to memorize IP addresses to visit websites. Then, without website hosting plans, you would have to set up your computer to act as a server.
A virtual private server (VPS) is a cross between a dedicated and a shared server. It’s not quite the best of both worlds, but it is a good compromise, especially if you want to keep your web hosting costs down while having more power.
Using shared plans, you share a server and its resources with other websites. With a VPS, you still share some resources, but it provides a virtual partition for each user, acting like multiple dedicated servers.
For web admins, using a VPS means that they get the administrative power of a dedicated hosting setup, including the ability to customize the server to suit their needs.
Yes – and we actively encourage you to do it. If you’re using a popular content management system such as WordPress or Drupal, we have tools that make switching between website hosting platforms easy and fast.
Even if you’re not using a typical CMS or need a little help along the way, our Customer Success team will guide you through the process free of charge.
Yes, you can. If you want to, you can purchase domain names from other domain registrars and point them to your web host.
If you want to keep your domain and hosting under a single provider – which we recommend for convenience and easier troubleshooting – transferring an existing domain name to Hostinger is possible.
Yes, each shared hosting plan comes with hPanel, Hostinger’s custom control panel.
hPanel helps you manage your hosting account, monitor resource usage, create email addresses, and install content management systems like WordPress. Note that this is different from the admin panel of your website, which will be created when you install a CMS. Instead, this is the admin panel for your web hosting and domain services as a whole.
Upgrading your web hosting service is easy with Hostinger. We pride ourselves on having no downtime during the upgrade, so your website will be up and running the whole time. You won’t have to worry about a bad browsing experience or losing revenue.
Yes and no. There are two versions of WordPress – WordPress.com and WordPress.org. WordPress.org users will need web hosting because it’s a content management system (CMS), not a website hosting platform built for storing website files and databases.
Because of that, many shared web hosts offer plans tailored for WordPress. Usually, managed WordPress hosting includes one-click installation and optimized features, so you don’t need any technical experience to get your site up and running.
Meanwhile, WordPress.com is a blogging service that includes web hosting in its plans, so you don’t need to purchase it from a separate web host.
The most common way of connecting your domain name to your hosting is pointing it to Hostinger‘s nameservers. You’ll need to replace your domain’s name server data. Like most tasks, it is easy to do through your domain management area.
Yes, Hostinger has a custom-developed tool that allows you to install 100+ apps on your website in a single click. Our auto-installer makes it faster and easier to try out different scripts and find the best ones for your website.
No. Hostinger makes it as easy as possible for beginners to manage their websites. Many simple tasks, like setting up an email address or installing a content management system, can be done with just a few clicks and no prior technical knowledge.
Meanwhile, our web hosting services are also suitable for experienced web developers. That’s because we believe that there’s no reason why something can’t be both user-friendly and powerful.
If you face any issues, we offer a variety of online guides to walk you through all sorts of tasks. Our Customer Success team is also more than happy to help if you get stuck.
