Shared Web Hosting FAQs
Find answers to frequently asked questions about web hosting services
Your website is a collection of files and (in most cases) databases that are shown to your visitors as they browse your site. Hostinger, like most web hosts, allocates storage space for your website’s files and databases on a server.
When you sign up for Hostinger’s hosting plans, you’ll receive login details to access your hosting account’s admin panel – the hPanel. In hPanel, you can manage all things related to your website, from hosting to domains, databases, files, and so on.
Web hosting is a service that makes your website available on the internet. When you get a hosting plan, you rent space on a physical server to store all the website’s data and files. There are many types of hosting available, such as shared hosting, WordPress hosting, and VPS. While most web hosting providers offer similar plans, the more popular a website is, the more resources it will need to function effectively.
Hostinger helps you scale your hosting plans when you need it. So, you can start with a simple shared hosting plan and gradually upgrade to a cloud hosting or even a VPS hosting plan.
The most common types of hosting include:
Shared hosting. Multiple websites are hosted on the same server, and each user is allocated a certain amount of storage space and resources. Often, this is the most affordable option available, so it is a great hosting option for hobbyists and bloggers.
VPS hosting. A virtual private server (VPS) setup generally uses more powerful hardware, making it possible for the web host to create a virtual partition for each user. It’s an excellent option for users with more advanced technical knowledge.
Cloud hosting. In this setup, websites run on multiple virtual or cloud servers – not just one physical server – reducing possible downtime and hardware failure. If you need access to more server power, this type of hosting can be right for you.
Dedicated hosting. When you have a dedicated hosting plan, the server is dedicated to your website only – you don’t share storage space or resources with others. A dedicated hosting setup is usually recommended for professional web admins and developers.

Both are essential for building a functional website. The difference between web hosting and domain is that a domain name is the website’s address, such as panel.fastwebpc.com, while web hosting is a service that stores site files and makes them available on the internet.
Without domains, people would have to memorize IP addresses to visit websites. Then, without a web hosting service, you would have to set up your own computer to act as a server.
A virtual private server (VPS) is a cross between a shared and a dedicated server. It’s not quite the best of both worlds, but it is a good compromise, especially if you want to keep your hosting costs down while having a bit more power.
With shared hosting plans, you share a server and its resources with other websites. With a VPS, you still share some resources, but one machine acts like multiple dedicated servers, providing a separate virtual server for every user.
For web admins, using a VPS means that they get the administrative power of a dedicated hosting setup, including the ability to customize the server to suit their needs.
Yes – and we actively encourage you to do it. If you’re using a popular content management system such as WordPress or Drupal, we have tools that make switching between web host platforms easy and fast. Even if you’re not using a typical CMS or simply need a little help along the way, our Customer Success team will guide you through the process free of charge.
Yes, you can. If you want to, you can purchase domain names from other domain registrars and point them to FastWebPC. If you want to keep your domain name and website hosting under a single provider – which we recommend for convenience and easier troubleshooting – transferring an existing domain name to FastWebPCis also possible. Simply reach out to our Customer Success team, and they will help you out.
Yes, each hosting plan can be managed from your very own hPanel, FastWebPC custom control panel.
The hPanel helps you manage your hosting account, monitor resource usage, create email addresses, and install content management systems like WordPress. Note that this is different from the admin panel of your website, which will be created when you install a CMS. Instead, this is the admin panel for your server as a whole.
Upgrading your web hosting service to another hosting plan is easy with FastWebPC. We pride ourselves on having no downtime during the upgrade, so your website will be up and running the whole time. You won’t have to worry about a bad browsing experience or losing revenue.
Yes and no. There are two versions of WordPress – WordPress.com and WordPress.org. WordPress.org users will need web hosting because it’s a content management system (CMS), not a platform built for hosting website files and databases. Because of that, many web hosts offer plans tailored for WordPress. Usually, WordPress hosting includes one-click installation and optimized features, so you don’t need any technical experience to get your site up and running.
Meanwhile, WordPress.com is a blogging service that includes web hosting in its plans, so you don’t need to purchase it from a separate web host.
The easiest and most common way of connecting your domain name to your hosting is pointing it to FastWebPC nameservers. This means that you’ll need to replace your domain’s name server data. Like most things, pointing your domain to FastWebPC is easy to do through your admin panel.
Yes, FastWebPC has a custom-developed tool that allows you to install over 100+ apps to your website in a single click. Our auto-installer saves you time, making it faster and easier to try out different scripts and find out the best ones for your website.
No. Hostinger makes it as easy as possible for beginners to manage their websites. Many simple tasks, like setting up an email address or installing a content management system, can be done with just a few clicks and no prior technical knowledge.
Meanwhile, our web hosting services are also suitable for experienced web developers. That’s because we believe that there’s no reason why something can’t be both user-friendly and powerful.
If you face any issues, we offer a variety of online guides to walk you through all sorts of tasks. Plus, our Customer Success team is also more than happy to help if you get stuck.
FastWebPC is providing to our customer the domain and dedicated servers with the professional and secure way.
