Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much does web hosting cost?

The cost of your hosting service will depend on the provider you choose and the service plan you choose. Shared hosting plans with limited bandwidth and storage tend to be cheaper, while the more expensive plans tend to provide dedicated servers on high-end hardware with priority customer support.

What does server uptime mean?

Server uptime refers to how long a server is fully functional and connected to the Internet. If the server somehow malfunctions and shuts down, it means the websites on the server cannot be accessed.

Naturally, most customers want to make sure their sites are as accessible as possible, which is why many web hosting providers guarantee uptime in their service plans. Many providers guarantee at least 99% uptime, otherwise customers get some sort of compensation for their problem.
