What is Domain Name Registration?
In order to have a website, you need to register a domain name. The registration process can be thought of as a trademark registration service. The registration service ensures that the domain name you have purchased is registered in your name for the duration of your purchase and cannot be purchased by another person.
Do I need to transfer my domain to you?
We offer extremely competitive pricing on domain names that is often much cheaper than at other registrars. If you prefer, you can still host with GH-FS Hosting and keep your domains at any registrar you choose.
What is Web Hosting (Hosting)?
Web hosting is an online service that makes your website's content accessible on the internet. When you purchase a hosting plan, you are renting space on a physical server to store all the website's files and data.
When will my hosting service be activated?
Accounts will be set up immediately after payment. You should receive a welcome email with instructions on getting started within a few minutes after making your payment.
Which Hosting Product Should I Choose?
The hosting package you choose according to the purpose of your website is very important.
If you own a website for promotional purposes only, you can choose one of our ECO Packages in our Hosting Packages List.
If you need more hosting space and features, you can choose one of our PRO Packages.
If you let us know what kind of web page you have, we can calculate your needs and offer you the most suitable hosting package.
I want to transfer my website to you. Do you do this?
Yes, we can perform the transfer for you. Please contact us so that we can give you the most suitable offer.
Can I install software into my account?
Yes you may set up any software that runs on PHP/MySQL or Perl. We additionally have an application catalogue that will allow you to install over 300 commonly used applications in a few seconds.
Can I subdivide my space and resell it?
Our multi-domain plans use one control panel login, and so while they are perfect for hosting a number of your own sites, they are not suited for reselling and we don't permit them to be used in this way. If you are looking to resell hosting or provide hosting to others, our reseller packages are more suitable, and provide a much more robust solution for providing space to 3rd parties.
Will my account be backed up?
We take an automatic backup on a daily basis for all accounts. Customers on our Startup and Performance plans can restore files directly from these backups via your control panel, as well as initiate on-demand snapshots of their account.
The automated backups we take are strictly speaking for the purposes of full server restoration, and as per our terms, we do not guarantee the availability of these backups. We would therefore recommend that customers purchase our professional backup solution.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal. We do not support automated recurring billing via PayPal so if you are paying month-to-month we would strongly recommend using a credit or debit card.
Do I pay any hidden fees?
No, you do not need to pay anything extra.
What billing cycles do you offer?
You can pay monthly or for 1, 2 or 5 years up front. If you decide to pre-pay, we give you some great discounts on our ongoing pricing.
Which scripts are compatible with your server?
Server Side Includes (SSI) (Linux hosting)
PHP hypertext preprocessor (PHP)
Common Gateway Interface (CGI)
Fast Common Gateway Interface (FastCGI) (Linux hosting)
and much more.
