What does Web Hosting mean?

Web Hosting is a kind of service by means of which your website, and the files it contains, are stored on a server. The Web Hosting Service makes your website accessible to all the Internet users. The site is composed of several files that are placed in a specific folder on the server. Web Hosting means renting a space on the company’s server for a certain period of time. The server is connected to the Internet via a broad traffic band.

The server is a very powerful computer, specially designed and engineered to provide the customers with the possibility of storing several sites and able to serve all the requests coming from the server’s systems and applications. The Web Hosting Service offers businesses and individuals the opportunity to hold a website in the Global Network.


Besides the allocated storage space on the server, we provide other facilities as well, such as a convenient control dashboard (cPanel) and several configuration options: adding/editing sub-domains, databases, emails, accessing files, cron jobs, automatic installation of CMS scripts and various statistic charts about your website visitors.

How to choose the right Web Hosting Plan?

When choosing the most suitable subscription, the following aspects should be taken into account: the space occupied by the php/html files or data of other nature, depending on the language that was used to create the website’s images.Same reffers to the pdf or word documents – which wll be attached to pages. The mailboxes created in the hosting account require an allocated space as well. It is recommended to store several hundred MB for the normal functioning of an e-mail.

The most commonplace technologies used in Web Hosting Servers are the following: PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, ColdFusion or ASP.NET) with various types of databases (MYSQL, PostgreSQL). These kinds of servers can easily maintain e-commerce sites (online shopping) or forums.

Usually, the servers run on certain operating systems, the most popular being Linux and Windows.

The Web Hosting Services offered by our company can be divided into 4 categories:

Shared Web Hosting - is the type of hosting where the files of several sites are placed on the same server. These sites are jointly consuming the server’s resources (HDD, CPU, RAM, etc); this type of Web Hosting is most commonly used by companies for corporate websites, presentation sites, small and medium-sized online stores, etc.

VPS (Virtual Private Server) Hosting - is quite similar to the Shared Web Hosting, the only difference being that its resources are greater, and their sharing is based on the virtualization apps, that are virtually dividing them, and ensure the use of the purchased inputs (HDD, CPU and RAM).

Dedicated Hosting/Dedicated Servers - the dedicated server can be rented and totally controlled by the customer. When renting a server, you can choose the operating system that can be installed on your allocated server: Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu or Windows Server.

Web Hosting Reseller - the hosting account owner can sell the system’s resources (disk space, bandwidth control, etc.). This type of hosting is mostly used by the web design  or web development companies.

Placing an Order is an extremely simple operation: just select the services you want to purchase, click the "order" button and follow the instructions to complete the application.

Payment and activation - the purchased services will be enabled immediately upon confirmation of the payment. The settlement can be made via the integrated systems on our website or by direct bank transfer, in case of the legal entities.
