What is web hosting?

web hosting cape town

Whether you're in the process of designing a website, or you already have a website, web hosting is what makes it possible for people around the world to view your website over the Internet.

Put simply, when you sign up for web hosting with Smartweb, you're essentially renting storage space on one of our servers. This space is much the same as disk space on your own computer's hard drive - except that now the data is accessible via the Internet across the globe.

Can I transfer my existing hosting?

Migrating your website hosting to Smartweb is most often a fairly simple process. If you have access to your existing website files, start by making a backup of them. After you sign up with us, you'll be able to upload the files to our servers and create your email accounts using our control panel.

You can then let our support team know that you'd like your domain to be transferred to us and we'll issue the transfer request. If your current host uses cPanel, we can also perform a full cPanel migration for you.

If you still have any questions about transferring your hosting to us, feel free to contact our support desk any time of the day.

In order to determine which package is best suited to your needs, you'll need to consider a number of factors; 1) the size of your website, 2) the amount of traffic you expect to generate, and 3) the number of domains you're going to be hosting.

Should you decide you need more storage space or bandwidth, our plans are all easily upgradable at a moments notice. Remember, we won't tie you into any contracts, so changing packages is a painless process!
