Web Hosting South Africa FAQs
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service provided by companies (the web host) that sell or lease space on a server where you store the files that make your website accessible on the internet. These companies typically require that you own a domain, and they may help you purchase one.
How does web hosting work?
Once you purchase a Web hosting plan, we store your site on our servers and assign it a unique DNS. The DNS is the address that allows people around the world to access your website. This unique address is required in order for people to view your site.
By purchasing a website hosting package, you're buying space our servers. It’s similar to the space on the hard drive of a computer, and the being on our server allows your website files to be accessed from anywhere.
If I already have a website, can I transfer it to your web hosting?
Moving your website to Websitebuilder.co.za is a simple process; access your existing website files and upload them through our Hosting Control Center (or via an FTP client). If you don’t immediate access to your website files, you should be able to request a copy from your current website hosting provider.
If you have any questions along the way, our 24/7 support team is here to assist you. We can help you determine the best method for transitioning your website to Websitebuilder.co.za
How do I transfer my web pages to your server?
If you’ve built your website in a HTML editor (like Dreamweaver or Microsoft Expression Studio), upload your website files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). We have a built-in FTP File Manager for you to access in our Hosting Control Center.
If your files are larger than 20 MB, we recommend using the tool FileZilla, compatible with Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® operating systems. Or, you may choose to use third-party FTP clients.
What is shared hosting?
Shared hosting is a popular hosting option where a provider hosts multiple websites on one physical web server. Typically, most websites don't use many server resources, so shared hosting lets providers offer stable service at a low cost. If you decide that shared hosting is right for you, you’ll need to decide which type of shared hosting you prefer. Shared hosting allows you to share hosting space and costs with others, while benefitting from the speed and space you need for your small business website.
What's included with my Web Hosting Package?
The Web Hosting Packages will give you everything you need to host your personal or company website. All packages include a free .co.za domain name, fast storage, unlimited traffic* and free SSL certificates to help you secure your presence online.
All hosting packages include the Award Winning website hosting control panel called cPanel. cPanel will allow you to manage all aspects of your website hosting package from the creating of email accounts, managing databases, backing up your website and viewing of your website statistics. Don't worry if you get stuck, our support staff are always on hand to assist.
