Unlike most other firms, we do not charge excess fees. If you go over your bandwidth limit for your account, we simply ask that you upgrade your account to the next one up.
Windows hosting packages can support technologies such as ASP, ASP.NET, .NET framework and Microsoft Access databases, as they all need a Windows environment to run in. We have kept the prices as low as we can for this package, bearing in mind that Microsoft Windows Server licenses are relatively expensive compared to standard Linux licenses which are indeed free. We have also kept all the main features from our Linux packages in our Windows packages, other than several of the CGI scripts. This is because of compatibility with the Windows Operating System.
Yes. MySQL is available on both Linux and Windows (limited to two per account) hosting packages, these are free of charge and included within the packages. However, on Windows packages, you can get MS SQL Databases as well and these are available at a cost of £12.50 per month, due to licensing through Microsoft. These are not available on Linux packages though.
Yes. In order to buy web hosting and not a domain name, you will need to have a domain name already that you want to simply keep with another supplier. You will also need to have control of this domain name so that you can change the name-servers on it to point at our servers. In this way your domain name will be referring to our servers. You will also be given this option when trying to buy a hosting package through us. In order to do this, you will need to add the domain name to your purchase as a transfer request, add your hosting choice and then remove your domain name from your basket before you reach the payment stage.
In order to determine which package is best for you or your business, the best thing to look at is the features that you will require, and how many visitors you are expecting to visit your site every month. Also, if you are planning to store a lot of files on your website, you may wish to think about having more web space available to you. We recommend that you use Linux hosting unless you specifically need Windows technology.
