Which hosting plan is best for me?

Different plans suit different wants and needs for your website. This can also depend on what type of site you have already or if you are starting a new site. You can opt for a Shared hosting if you have a small website with slow traffic or a start up a venture. Shared hosting is for sites with limited number of email accounts to be set up because of a limited number of employees. The main advantage of shared hosting is that they are cheapest and easy to use, especially for beginners. VPS hosting provides you dedicated system resources and a virtual system with OS installed on it. They give you full system access so you can install your own software and tools. It costs you more than shared hosting as there you have purchase your own tools like you will be paying for cPanel by yourself. But VPS can handle an estabilished website especially when the traffic increases. For larger websites with more traffic we would suggest CPU, RAM and Cloud Servers. Linux v.s. Windows  Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is the most popular operating system for web servers. Since Linux-based hosting is more popular, it has more of the features web designers expect. So unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is normally the preferred choice. Linux and Windows also use different database languages. It is important to remember if you need special Windows script languages. Windows makes it possible to execute conception frameworks, .NET framework or SharePoint. Windows has a big advantage when you want to add special Windows applications to your website. Some of them are ActiveServerPages (ASP), .NET script languages, VisualBasic or using Microsoft SQL databases (Access). Linux is most favourable choice for operating systems for web servers. With its reliability, stability and efficiency, Linux proved itself in complex web and mailserver environments. If you want to use PHP, Perl or MySQL, Linux is the operating system of choice, this is due to it being well-suited for blogs, content management systems, online stores and forums.

What happens if I exceed my allowance?

The cloud is designed to be scaled to fit your allowance, this means you will be given plenty of warning if you approach your limit. Certa Hosting would never take your site offline without giving you advanced warnings and time to act. If you do exceed your allowance, you will be notified via email. Exceeding your bandwidth usually means you need to upgrade to the next hosting package. Alternatively you can temporarily increase your bandwidth allowance. Please contact our support team to discuss your options.  

What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting means there are multiple servers within one network so should any of the servers become unresponsive, it simply switches to another server and there’s no disruption. This guarantees that you can trust it’s reliability and know you won’t encounter any server down time.

You rent space on our servers for the files and database that make up your website. All you have to do is focus on creating and managing your website and we will look after the technical server side hosting requirements.
