Web Hosting Questions
What is web hosting?
Every website that you visit on the internet consists of a domain name and a hosting server. Web hosting is the process of using a server to host a website. Local Leap Hosting, 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.
Are there different types of hosting services?
Yes! Web hosting comes in all different shapes and sizes. In general hosting can be broken up into the following categories:
Shared Hosting: This is usually the cheapest form of website hosting because it’s the most economical when it comes to the use of hardware. Shared hosting means that multiple different websites are all hosted on the same server, with each user being allocated a certain amount of storage space and a certain amount of resources.
VPS Hosting: A virtual private server (VPS) setup is like a shared hosting setup on steroids. It generally uses more powerful hardware and takes its name from the fact that while multiple websites are being stored on the same physical hardware, each uses virtualisation software to allow them to operate independently as though they were dedicated mini-servers.
Dedicated Hosting: Dedicated hosting is a good choice for the pros, and like its name suggests, it involves the use of a server that’s dedicated to a single website. In other words, unlike shared and VPS hosting, the user doesn’t have to share storage space and resources with other people and they have a physical piece of hardware all to themselves.
Local Leap Hosting provides a mix of shared and VPS hosting. This setup allows us to provide fast website hosting with nearly 100% uptime at unbeatable price.
Can I transfer my website to Local Leap Hosting?
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.
What’s 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.
