We believe that web hosting is more than just providing web space and FTP access. Our aim is to provide individuals and businesses with everything they need to express themselves on the Internet. Whatever you want to create a website for, be it a small family photo album or a full powered database-driven e-commerce website, your choice of web host is essential. The right web host will make the difference between a slow clunky site that has regular downtime and a site that is always available and blisteringly fast!

Web hosting terminology

New to web  hosting? Here are some of the most common terms used:

Bandwidth

A term used by web  hosts to describe how  much data can  pass from the server your  website is hosted on to people visiting your  web  site.  This includes the files that make up your  website as well as any data downloaded from databases or media files.

ccTLD

A country code top  level domain name. These domain names are associated with a country or geographic location, e.g. .co.uk  (UK), .fr (France), and .cn (China). The ability to register these domain names from another country depends on the registrar’s rules. For example, .co.uk  (UK) has no restrictions, whereas .it (Italy) demands you are based in Europe.

Domain Name System

The system that maps domain names to the corresponding machines’ IP addresses. This system is essentially a phone book that translates human friendly names into  computer friendly numbers. Because this  information is stored across multiple computers, any updates to a domain (including registration and ownership details) can  take up to 48 hours to work  its way across all of them.

File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

Once you are ready to see what your  website looks  like online, uploading the files to your  web space is really  easy and is often as simple as clicking, dragging, and dropping. The method you will use to get your  website online is called File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Don’t be put  off by the name, all this  does is take the files from your  computer and put  them on to the web  host’s  server for people to access. Simple! In order to do this  your  web  host may  offer  an upload function though your  account with them, but  that means you have to log in every time. A quicker alternative that most people use is FTP software. Some HTML editors come with this  built in (e.g. Dreamweaver or Microsoft Expression Web) but  even if yours doesn’t, there is an industry standard standalone free software program called FileZilla you can  download.”

HTML

HTML (Hyper  Text Mark-up Language) is the first layer  of a web  page and deals with the content, such as the text,  any lists, tables, quotes, and more.

LAMP

LAMP is an acronym used to describe a set  of open source software used by many people and businesses to save money and to prevent platform lock-in.

  • Linux: Operating system
  • Apache: Web server
  • MySQL: Database
  • PHP: Programming code

MySQL

MySQL (owned and developed by Sun  Microsystems) is the world’s  most popular open source database. It is also  part of the open source software stack known as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).

Subdomain

Subdomain names are domains that are part of the parent domain name.

They are free to set  up and can  be useful if you have areas of your  site  you want to categorise, e.g. dictionary.domain.com, thesaurus.domain.com.

TLD

Top Level Domain Names have no association with any countries and were amongst the first to be created, e.g. .com,  .net, and .org.

Web Space

The amount of space allocated to your  website by a web  host to store all your  files and data. The more web  space you have the more information you can  store.
