    Power: For larger websites and e-commerce stores.

  • Can I transfer my existing hosting to Smartweb?

    Yes, migrating your existing website hosting to Smartweb is a breeze. 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.

    If you still have any questions about transferring your hosting to us, feel free to contact our support desk and we'll be happy to assist.

  • Can I host more than one website on a single package?

    Sure! Simply choose our Standard or Enterprise packages and host multiple websites on a single packages. No more needing to buy and manage separate packages for each of your websites, which ultimately saves you time and money. Now that's smart!

  • How do I get a website?

    You have two options:

    1) Hire A Professional

    While this option is definitely the more costly of the two, the benefit of hiring a professional web designer - besides for the time that you'll be saving - is that you're more likely to end up with a site that is far more professional than what you'd have been able to achieve on your own.

    2) Do It Yourself

    If you're eager for the exciting challenge of designing your own website, we offer a myriad of options from which you can choose to do so.

    Firstly, all of our hosting packages include our RVSiteBuilder software. RVSiteBuilder will allow you to easily create and launch a website in minutes, with the choice of a large variety of pre-designed templates.

    If you're looking for something a bit more powerful, you can use Softaculous to quickly and easily install Wordpress (great for website creation and blogging) or Joomla (for the more advanced users).
