Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
You have questions? We’ve got answers!
Your website is basically a collection of files and (in most cases) database that are served up to your visitors as they browse around it. We will allocate space for you to store your website, database and emails.
When you sign up GigaCloud, you’ll receive login details to access your hosting account’s admin panel.
We offer custom built hosting control panel. Using our control panel you can carry out basic hosting management, monitor resource usage, create email addresses and install content management systems (CMSs) like WordPress. Note that this is different to the admin panel for your website, which will be created when you install a CMS. This is the admin panel for your server as a whole.
Think of a domain name as an address to your home, while the web hosting would be the actual building. If you want to find a store, you don’t look for it by coordinates. You look for it by the address.
Without domain names, we would have to memorise IP addresses, would be much harder and wouldn’t let you make a good impression with a memorable domain name!
For a free .com, .net .org .biz or .info domain, you will have to purchase our annual Plus or Ultimate hosting plan. You will get the option to register your very own domain, totally free for the first year. Renews at regular price.
Yes. If you want to, you can purchase domain names from another registrar and point it to your GigaCloud server. If you would like to keep your domain name(s) and hosting together under a single platform, you can transfer existing domain names to us.
The differences are largely related to the amount of disk space used, and the number of domains/sites you’d like to host. You can discuss this with us at any time and we’ll advise the best plan to choose.
Bandwidth describes the level of traffic, and amount of data that is transferred between your site, users, and the Internet.
For example, if your website contains a 1MB picture, and 2,000 visitors view the picture, it uses 2,000MB (2GB) of bandwidth.
GigaCloud features unmetered bandwidth for all our hosting plans.
Bandwidth is ” Unmetered” which means you are not charged according to the amount of bandwidth you use.
However, that being said, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of Service and to only utilize disk space and bandwidth in the normal operation of a personal or small business website.
LiteSpeed web server is a high-performance Apache drop-in replacement. LSWS is the 4th most popular web server on the internet and the #1 commercial web server. Performance up to 9x faster than Apache with a small memory footprint and increased scalability. Full benefits on the official LSWS website.
We recommend using WordPress or Weebly. Both solutions provided by GigaCloud.
WordPress is free software that allows you to create and manage your website without any coding experience.
WordPress can be installed by the click of a mouse from inside your cPanel account.
Weebly is an excellent drag-and-drop website builder offered as a premium addon solution.
Once you have WordPress or Weebly installed, we recommend searching Google tutorials to learn how to create and customize your website design, etc.
Not at all. You are free to cancel your account or services at any time.
An SSL certificate is a small data file that uses a cryptographic key to digitally tie your company’s identity with the files that are stored on your webserver. The idea is to prove the identity of the publisher of a webpage and to reduce the likelihood of a visitor accessing sensitive areas of a website without the appropriate security.
When a website has been secured with an SSL certificate, a visitor will see a padlock icon in their web browser and they’ll be connected to the site using the https:// protocol. With the SSL certificate in place and the user accessing the site through https, the connection between the browser and the web server has been secured and sensitive information can safely be transferred.
That’s why people use SSL certificates on e-commerce websites and other types of website that process credit card transactions and other financial information.
We offer free SSL certificates for all our hosting plans.
Sure! We’re all about helping our customers to get their businesses off the ground, and that means that we support e-commerce sites on any of our plans. You can also take advantage of our auto-installers to set up a range of content management systems (CMS) and e-commerce platforms.
Yes, absolutely we do. You may download a copy of your own backup anytime, however we back your account up automatically each day, just in case of utter emergency.
It can be immediate depending on options that you choose. If you register a domain name, for instance, that can take a while to propagate to the internet, but rest assured, set up will be quick.
We take security very seriously because there’s no point having a website if you can’t be sure that it’s safe from attack. We go out of our way to ensure that our servers are as strong and secure as possible. This includes running advanced , custom built and premium security software. We also regularly update our infrastructure.
We accept Credit or Debit card payments through PayPal.
If you’re not a frequent PayPal user, you may be able to make credit card payments as a guest (without creating an account).
If you have any issues paying through PayPal, please contact the PayPal customer service.
We don’t offer any partial or full refunds. Once you buy a hosting plan and/or domain name, it’s considered an “open box item”. That said, we are fully positive our customers will be more than happy with our services and we will support you on any server related issue.
