Frequently asked questions about web hosting

 
What is web hosting? 

Every website is made up of files - text files, image files, audio files, etc. These files need to be placed somewhere that lets anyone on the Internet view them which is why you need a hosting service to store your files online. When those files are uploaded onto a powerful computer (a server), that means the website is hosted by that server.

The company that owns the server then points the web address (also known as a domain name) to those files, and now anyone can access that website through that address.

Do I need technical knowledge to use your web hosting? 

A little bit of technical knowledge will help make the process smoother, but you can access most of the features you need through the straightforward and beginner-friendly control panel.

Knowing a bit about FTP does help, as it is the easiest way to upload your site to your hosting package, but the applications included in your package also make it easy to create a website.

And if you've never created a website before, don't worry - we have a huge support database with plenty of step-by-step articles and videos to help you along the way.

How long does it take to set up? 

Most packages are set up immediately, and you can begin to build your website right away. However, it might take a few days for your domain to be fully registered and point to your hosting package. This timeframe is perfectly normal and happens across every web host -it just takes time for the servers and the domains to sync up.

Can you help me move my website across from another hosting provider? 

Every hosting provider is different, with some it might be more difficult than others to transfer, but we are 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.

What is the difference between cloud hosting and cloud computing? 

When you host a website, you're hosting files on a server. With "cloud hosting", this means that your files are actually on several servers, so that if any one server goes down, the others can pick up the slack and keep your site running. Cloud-based hosting is very reliable and flexible, making it easy for you to upgrade and easy for us to swap in and out servers as needed.

"Cloud computing", which is what people usually mean when they refer to "the cloud", is when you use software and services online rather than installing them on your computer. This can be things like online text editors, webmail, photo galleries, and online calendars. Many computers now offer cloud computing, including Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo.

How do I contact 123-reg for help? 

The first step would to be to check out our detailed Product Knowledge Base. Where we have plenty of information about hosting websites, so it's likely that the answer to your problem could be there

If you can't find the answer, you can get in touch with us through our Contact Page, which lets you contact us through email, live chat, or phone. Keep in mind that some of the ways to contact us are only available during UK office hours, so please make sure you're picking the right way for the right time!

Can I buy web hosting without a domain name? 

Every site hosted on 123-reg needs to be associated with a domain in order to work. But every web hosting package includes at least one free domain name, so you won't need to buy another one.

I already own a domain name. Can I use it with my web hosting? 

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 hosted 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 web hosting 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 where your domain name is and what type it is. But once it's in, you can associate it with your account right away.
  • 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 hosting on 123-reg, but we won't charge you any additional fees. And it will take around 24-48 hours for your other domain name to show your new site.
I don't want all my free domain names. What should I do? 

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.

Is my data limit really unlimited? 

Yes. We really mean it when we say "unlimited".

We discovered that it's 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. Which is why when you buy hosting from us, unlimited really does mean unlimited.

We host websites for millions of customers from our own UK-based data centre, and we make certain we have plenty of capacity, with more than enough bandwidth to go around.

Which operating system should I use with my hosting? 

You can host your site on a Linux or a Windows server. These operating systems take care of the basic functions in your hosting package, and each has its advantages.

You don't need to choose the same operating system that runs on your computers at home or at your business, and you should choose what would work best for your website.

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 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.

Should I back up the files in my website hosting package? 

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.

Can I install applications with my web hosting? 

Of course you can. As long as our hosting meets the requirements for your application, you can install almost anything. We can't allow applications that require root or administrator-level access, however, 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 server packages that 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! See our full range of applications available!

How secure is 123-reg web hosting? 

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.

Is there a minimum contract period? 

Our hosting packages are available in yearly contracts, and you can pay monthly or annually.

What happens to my free domain names if I cancel my account? 

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. You will be notified before they expire, so you don't have to worry about them suddenly disappearing.

How does the money back guarantee work? 

If you decide that the web hosting package you've bought isn't right for you, for any reason, please give us a call within the first 14 days, and 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.
