Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Web Application Firewall?

Every day, thousands of sites are compromised by attacks on websites through applications like blogs or shopping carts. This has become the leading way for hackers and cyber-criminals to get through security measures. They try to bypass traditional security measures and steal data or traffic.

This is where Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects websites from bots or hackers’ attempting to break into websites. The WAF is included with Managed and Fully Managed hosting. Together WAF and CDN, Certa Hosting provides the fastest and most secure experience for your website.

Why should I move to a virtual server?

There are many reasons why you should move to a virtual server. If you want to increase your web hosting or simply want more control. The next best choice for your hosting needs is a managed or fully managed VPS (Virtual Private Server). This gives you more freedom with root access to Apache and PHP, and you can install an SSL certificate, as well as any type of software. This is all without the responsibility of a physical dedicated server. On a shared server, you rely on the performance of the platform provided. By choosing for VPS, you get to select a configuration best suited for your company’s applications, requirements and growth.

What is a CDN?

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers that are set up in multiple data centres across the world. CDN delivers web pages and other content based on the geographic locations of the customer, the origin of the web page and where the content delivery server is located.

The content is delivered quickly if the CDN server is close to the customer geographically. This is especially valuable for dynamic content, such as pictures or intense transaction-based eCommerce sites. The CDN is an included feature in Managed and Fully Managed packaged. By coupling CDN with WAF, we provide fast and secure experience for your website.

By using a CDN, you place static content as close to the visitor as possible. This in turn, decreases the page load time the visitor experiences by a large amount.

How do I migrate my web hosting contents to a VPS?

If you’re a current Certa Hosting cPanel shared hosting customer, you can select a one-click migration to VPS to import your sites, then re-direct DNS. This is only for Managed or Fully-Managed plans. We also provide a paid migration service. Or if you prefer you can migrate your data and applications onto the VPS and rearrange the DNS. We would recommend talking to our support team first, to make sure you choose the correct migration for your site.

Who can use a VPS?

You don’t need to be a VPS expert. If you have some technical skills, you can understand VPS; this is especially true for managed VPS. There are required admin skills needed for access, file transfer, and configuration. We are always developing more tools and features that will make it easier to manage your server environment. If you do need help with using VPS don’t hesitate to contact the support team, they are on hand to help you through the hosting process.

How do I upgrade my VPS

You can upgrade your VPS from your control panel, at any time. Your entire system (OS, software, settings) is saved, this means you don’t need to make any changes. Once you select a plan from Certa, upgrading happens quickly and automatically within minutes. If you need assistance with this process you can contact our support team and they will answer any questions you have.

What is VPS hosting and how does it work?

VPS hosting stands for Virtual Private Server; this is a visualised server. A VPS hosting environment copies a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment, and they merge together. A VPS allows you to host sites such as storefront, e-commerce, content, media, and software applications with ease.  These programs allow you to run numerous visualised operating systems on one machine. For example, if your desktop is running Windows 7, but you also want run other operating systems such as Windows XP or Linux, you can without needing to restart your computer.

 

How do I purchase a Dedicated IP for my hosting account?

Through the Account Manager purchasing a Dedicated IP is easy. From the main navigation bar, click on Hosting & Servers, and then select Dedicated IP. Then choose the length of Dedicated IP service you want to purchase, and proceed to checkout.

You should pre-pay for the same service length on your shared hosting and Dedicated IP addresses. That way, when it comes time to renew, you won’t need to worry about forgetting to renew one of your IP’s. Once you complete your purchase, go to the Web hosting area in your Account Manager and apply the credit.

Certa Hosting’s SSL certificate already comes with a Dedicated IP attached to them. When you apply the SSL to the hosting account, we assign the new Dedicated IP to the server.
