Frequently Asked Questions

Yes - you need three things to have a functioning website: a domain name, web hosting, and site files. You can think of your domain as your street address, your web host as the space you rent to have your business in, and your site files as the items in your office. Your web host provides the server where your site files (including blog posts, images, landing pages, and more) live so they can be accessed at yourdomain.com.

The "shared" in shared hosting refers to the fact that multiple websites are sharing a single web server. Shared is a perfect option for new bloggers or small websites that are just getting started online who need an economical option. As your site traffic grows, you can seamlessly upgrade at any time to a different hosting plan such as cloud hosting.

The Baby Plan is our most popular shared hosting plan, as it's budget-friendly but allows you to host as many domains as you like. The Business Plan also includes a private SSL (required for e-commerce) and a dedicated IP, making it a great fit for online stores. Regardless of which plan you choose, all of our shared hosting plans come with unlimited emails, easy one-click installs of WordPress and other popular content platforms, and 24/7/365 expert support.
