Frequently asked questions

What is Web Hosting?

As the Web Hosting provider, Fasthosts manages data centres housing large numbers of web servers, and provides space for customers to host web projects. This allows Fasthosts to offer you world-class website performance and availability – and at a fraction of the cost of purchasing and managing servers yourself.

What is shared hosting?

Web Hosting is sometimes known as shared hosting due to the way the platform is divided between users. Multiple websites can be hosted on the same server, each one provided with a portion of the available hardware and network resources.

Does Web Hosting come with a domain name?

All our Web Hosting plans include a free domain name registration for one year. Choose from .com, .co.uk, .uk and .london.

Can I use my existing domain name?

Yes you can, you just need to transfer it to Fasthosts with our free domain transfer service, and point it to your package. You can find guides to help you do this on our support site.

How can I create a website?

A website can be designed and created in a variety of ways, and Fasthosts offers a full range of options. Content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal allow the creation, publication and editing of everything from basic sites to complex web projects. Our OneClick Installer makes it simple to launch a ready-to-use CMS, and is included with all Web Hosting plans. For less technical users, the Fasthosts Website Builder enables easy website creation via a drag-and-drop interface and a wide choice of customisable templates.

Can I create more than one website with Web Hosting?

The Ignite Web Hosting package allows you to host one website, Momentum allows you to host three, and the Ultimate package allows you to host up to 100 websites. Whatever scale you need, Fasthosts Web Hosting offers a solution.

Can I use applications like WordPress with Web Hosting?

You’re free to use your application of choice on Fasthosts Web Hosting. To get started instantly, our OneClick Installer provides a simple way to launch content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, plus other apps for building forums, online shops, wikis and more.

But for running WordPress, our optimised WordPress Hosting package is the ideal choice. WordPress Hosting gives you a range of additional benefits, such as pre-installed plugins and an easy way to run multiple WordPress sites from one simple interface. You can make serious savings, too: the more WordPress websites you buy, the bigger your discount.

What technical knowledge do I need to use Web Hosting?

Uploading your website to our Web Hosting platform requires knowledge of FTP (the File Transfer Protocol). Guides are available on our support site to help you with this. OneClick apps for content management systems like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal can simplify the creation of websites, but you will need some knowledge of the software to use it effectively.

What is the difference between Web Hosting and Dedicated Servers?

With Web Hosting, we manage server resources to provide each customer with a portion of processing power and memory to run websites and applications. With a Fasthosts Dedicated Server, you get a whole customisable server all to yourself.

What is the difference between Linux and Windows?

In terms of Web Hosting, there isn’t a huge difference between Linux and Windows. Your choice will most likely come down to which tools you prefer to use. For example, if you want to build websites with WordPress or you need to use advanced scripting like Ruby or Python, Linux is usually the best option. But if your project requires ASP.NET or other Microsoft-based technologies, you should probably select Windows. If you change your mind, it’s possible to transfer at any time; our storage technology works with both Linux and Windows, so there’s no need to migrate your data.

How secure is Web Hosting?

Fasthosts Web Hosting is built on highly secure technology. Our UK data centres feature advanced security measures, both online and physically, with 24/7 monitoring by expert engineers and ISO 27001 accreditation. All our packages benefit from DDoS protection systems, and both the Momentum and Ultimate packages come with a GeoTrust SSL certificate with 256-bit encryption, free for the first year.

Our dedicated team of technical experts are available to help with all aspects of the platform 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Contact us on +44 (0)333 0142 700 or visit our support site for more details.
