F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is web hosting?

Every website that you visit consists of a domain name and a web host. The easiest way to picture it is to think of the domain name as the address and the hosting as the physical building.

When you’re browsing the web and you type in a URL (i.e. https://aspirewebagency.com), your web browser basically queries that domain name (i.e. aspirewebagency.com) and asks it where the website is hosted. The browser then loads up the contents that are stored there.

Hosting is effectively the process of using a server to host a website, and there are all sorts of different types of hosting available out there on the market. Aspire Web Agency, just like most web hosts offers different packages so that their customers can pay for just the resources that they need. The more popular the website is, the more resources it’s likely to need to function effectively.

The good news is that with Aspire Web Agency, you can scale your hosting package as and when you need it, so you can start off with Single hosting plan and gradually upgrade to Medium or even Deluxe plan later.

Do I need to have technical knowledge for hosting?
What kind of hosting do I need?

That depends – what kind of website do you have? And what’s your budget?

As a general rule, shared hosting is the best place to start, and our hosting is suitable for almost any kind of website. Our hosting helps you to keep the costs down during the early days of your website while allowing you to pay only for the resources that you need. If your website starts to take off, you can easily upgrade to higher tier plan and pick up some extra resources.

Ultimately, every website is different. If you’re not sure, why not get in touch with our team so we can chat it through with you and make a personalized suggestion based on your needs?

What’s a MySQL Database?

MySQL is an open source database management system that uses structured query language (SQL) to access, add to and manage the content of a database. The fact that it’s an open source tool means that it’s a popular choice for software developers, which is why it forms the backbone of many of the most popular operating systems.

Most modern content management system (such as WordPress) use it to store data. Every change that you make in the CMS is recorded in the MySQL database, and then every time a visitor arrives on the site, the content of that database is served up to them.

Can I transfer my website Aspire Web Agency?

Yes – and we actively encourage it! If you’re using one of the more common CMS platforms such as WordPress then there are plenty of tools available to make it easy to export from one host and to import into another. But if you’re not using a common CMS – or if you need a little help along the way – then just let us know. Our staff will do everything they can to help you to make the transfer – and we’ll do it free of charge!!

Can I upgrade my hosting plan as my website grows?

Yes! In fact, this is usually what we recommend, and it’s one of the benefits of choosing Aspire Web Agency as your hosting provider. We make the upgrade procedure as simple as possible so that you can start on our budget plans and upgrade as your website starts to take off. We’re there alongside you at all times and we’re ready to grow with you!

Many other hosting providers will try to talk you into taking out plans that you neither need nor want. We disagree with that. We believe you should pay only for the resources that you need.

How does web hosting work?

When you sign up us, you’ll receive login details to access your hosting account’s admin panel.

At Aspire Web Agency, we offer custom built hosting control panel. Using our control panel you can carry out basic hosting management, monitor resource usage, create email addresses and install content management systems (CMSs) like WordPress. Note that this is different to the admin panel for your website, which will be created when you install a CMS. This is the admin panel for your server as a whole.

How long does it take to set up a hosting account?
What is hosting bandwidth?

At its most simple level, bandwidth is a term that refers to how much data can pass along an internet connection.

When a user accesses your website, they send a request to the server and the server responds by literally serving up your website. Think of it as like turning on a tap. The more that people visit your website, the more water is flowing along the pipe, until you reach a point at which the pipe is full of water and it’s running at full capacity.

The same idea applies to your website. If too many people are trying to access it at the same time, the pipe is filled up and the site starts to slow down and even to stop working altogether. And your hosting bandwidth is what determines the width of that pipe.

What is an SSL Certificate?

An SSL certificate is a small data file that uses a cryptographic key to digitally tie your company’s identity with the files that are stored on your webserver. The idea is to prove the identity of the publisher of a webpage and to reduce the likelihood of a visitor accessing sensitive areas of a website without the appropriate security.

When a website has been secured with an SSL certificate, a visitor will see a padlock icon in their web browser and they’ll be connected to the site using the https:// protocol. With the SSL certificate in place and the user accessing the site through https, the connection between the browser and the web server has been secured and sensitive information can safely be transferred.

That’s why people use SSL certificates on e-commerce websites and other types of website that process credit card transactions and other financial information.

We offer free SSL certificates on ALL our hosting plans!

Can I buy Hosting without a domain name?

Yes, you can. If you already have a domain, you can point it to our server using our nameservers. If you want to keep your domain name and your website hosting together under a single provider — which we’d recommend for convenience and easier troubleshooting — then you can also transfer an existing domain name to us. Just get in touch and let us know!

Can I install and run an ecommerce site?

Of course! We’re all about helping our customers to get their businesses off the ground, and that means that we support e-commerce sites on any of our plans. You can also take advantage of our auto-installers to set up a range of content management systems (CMS) and e-commerce platforms.
