Questions & Answers

Here are some common questions and answers to Website Hosting questions we get in our support team from time to time.

Web hosting is a paid service for storing your website’s files on one of our servers – making it accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world. It's basically leasing space on one of our servers.

Shared hosting is an easy and affordable way to get started on the web for websites that are not high traffic. Think of it like renting a room in a big house, you have your own small private space (your room) and you share the facilities in the house like the kitchen and bathroom. In hosting terms, your private room is your home directory and no one else can put their data in your home directory. It is yours alone. However you still have to share the major server resources with other sites, such as CPU, RAM (memory) and network connectivity.

If you are moving from another cPanel provider, our team will transfer your backups including your website, emails and data from your old web host and restore them on our servers at no charge. If not using cPanel contact us nevertheless as it may still be possible to do so.

There are file storage companies that do that like Onedrive, ICloud, dropbox,etc. We are are a Website Hosting Provider so if you are uploading and linking to the file through your Website then that is fine. If you are uploading data for storing backups of it that is not web related then the Terms of Service is violated.

What our Customer Are Saying

  • I’ve been using Hostking for a few years and their service is excellent! The Hostking server admins are very knowledgeable and friendly. Their servers always have the latest hardware and they allow you to use command line tools via shell access on their shared hosting servers. Their VPS servers are also cheap. Mail delivery is also quick and efficient, these guys are one of South Africa’s best hosting companies in my opinion.

  • From the moment I registered with them, I was impressed by their speed and availability. I had some questions and their support (online chat and email correspondence) was very efficient in tackling my worries. I did thorough research on hosting providers and I have seen Hostking recommended above all others more than once. I fully understand why that is now. Just excellent customer service!
