Every website is made up of files and you need a hosting service to store them so that they can be viewed online. It’s a simple process: the files are uploaded onto a server (a powerful computer), and the company that owns the server then points the web address to the files.
Knowing a bit about FTP does help, as it is the easiest way to upload your site to your hosting package. However, the applications included in your plan, along with the user-friendly control panel make it easy to get your website online. We also have a huge support database with plenty of step-by-step articles and videos to help you along the way.
Most packages are set up immediately, and you can get your website online right away. In some cases, it might take a few days for the domain to fully register and point to your hosting package. This is perfectly normal and happens across every web host -it just takes time for the servers and the domains to sync up.
We’re here to help. Simply contact our expert support team and we will help you move everything over. We’ve also produced a useful guide to transferring your website that will talk you through every step.
Every site hosted on 123 Reg needs to be associated with a domain in order to work. But every package includes at least one free domain name, so you won’t need to buy another one.
If your domain name is already registered with 123 Reg and you’re not using it with another one of our services, then you can attach it to your web hosting package when you order.
If your domain is registered with another company, there are two ways to use it with your hosting package:
Transfer it to 123 Reg and then attach it to your package. Most companies will allow you to transfer, and we have a detailed guide on transferring domain names. You will need to wait for the transfer to complete before you purchase your hosting, and this can take up to a few days depending on the type and location of the domain.
Leave the domain name where it is and point it at your hosted site on 123 Reg. We have detailed instructions on how to point your domain name to 123 Reg. You will still need to register a domain name when you purchase your web hosting, but we won’t charge you any additional fees. It will take around 24-48 hours for your other domain name to show on your new site.
You don’t need to do anything with them. If you’ve registered them, you can just let them expire when they come up to be renewed.
It’s entirely up to you. If you decide you don’t want the domains any longer, you can let them expire once they reach their renewal date.
You can also keep them and use them, but you will need to pay the standard renewal price when they get close to their renewal date. We’ll let you know before they expire, so you won’t have to worry about them suddenly disappearing.
Yes. We really mean it when we say “unlimited”.
That’s because we know it can be hard to predict your website’s traffic, and it can be incredibly annoying to hit your limit just because you’ve had a great month.
You can host your site on a Linux or a Windows server – both have their advantages.
You don’t need to choose the same operating system that runs on your computers at home or at your business.
Most of our customers choose to host on Linux servers, which is usually a safe bet if you’re not sure what you need. Linux servers give you plenty of free software and programming options. With Linux packages you can use PHP, MySQL and it’s true that WordPress runs best on Linux based hosting.
But if you know you’re going to use Microsoft technologies like ASP.NET or Microsoft SQL, you will need to purchase a Windows hosting plan.
We take many precautions to keep your data safe from the full range of potential dangers, from malicious online threats to power failures.
But we do recommend that you also keep a personal backup of your site as well. A good and regular backup schedule doesn’t just protect you against the system failing, it also protects you against problems caused by changes you or your developers make to your website.
We have a guide to backing up your files using FTP, and if you have a Business or Unlimited package, you can also use the backup and restore feature in your control panel.
Of course you can. As long as our hosting meets the requirements for your application, you can install almost anything. However, we can’t allow applications that require root or administrator-level access as you share the server with other customers, and any changes your application makes might make changes to their websites as well. If you would like to install your own applications, we recommend you take a look at our VPS packages, and run Linux as that will give you the freedom you need with full root access.
We also have an extensive range of applications that are available for you to install in just one click from your control panel including everything from blogs to online stores to project management software and more!
We go above and beyond to keep our systems safe from hacking, hardware failures, software failures, and physical damage. All our servers are located in our own highly secure data centre, which is based in the UK.
Access to the servers is tightly controlled and limited to just essential personnel. Power is drawn from the National Grid through two different sources, and we also have uninterruptible power supplies as well as on-site generators just in case.
Along with our physical security measures, you can also take peace of mind by knowing that all your data is kept safe behind a secure firewall with multiple layers of protection. We have regular backups of all the data on our servers and store copies of the data off-site, so even if the worst occurs, your data will still be there.
Our hosting packages are available in yearly contracts, and you can pay monthly or annually.
If you decide that the package you’ve bought isn’t right for you for any reason, please give us a call within the first 14 days. We’ll refund you what you’ve paid for your hosting, excluding any additional fees for domains.
Domain names can’t be “unregistered” once you’ve chosen them. You will need to let them expire if you do not want to use them anymore.
