Advanced security and reliability

Get all the benefits of powerful, affordable Web Hosting, without compromising on security. Our clustered architecture provides exceptional levels of redundancy and resilience, while server pooling technology protects your site from attack. On our top Web Hosting packages you also get a dedicated SSL certificate, free for one year.

  • Free SSL certificate

    An SSL certificate from GeoTrust provides 256-bit encryption and shows customers how much you value security with that reassuring padlock icon. Get yours free for the first year on our Momentum and Ultimate packages.

  • Server pooling technology

    Server pooling protects your projects from distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Our support teams work to mitigate DDoS attacks, isolate targeted websites and minimise the effects on other sites on the same server.

Frequently asked questions

Questions about Web Hosting? Our FAQs provide answers to the most common queries. You can also contact our expert support team at any time.

What is Web Hosting?

Web Hosting is a service that uses computer hardware and network infrastructure to make websites and other web applications accessible through the World Wide Web. As the Web Hosting provider, Fasthosts manages data centres housing large numbers of servers, and provides space for customers to host web projects. This allows Fasthosts to offer you world-class website performance and availability – and at a fraction of the cost of purchasing and managing servers yourself.

What is shared hosting?

Web Hosting is sometimes known as shared hosting due to the way the platform is divided between users. Multiple websites can be hosted on the same server, each one provided with a portion of the available hardware and network resources. At Fasthosts, our Web Hosting platform ensures a consistent level of performance for your website – so even if a nearby site receives a sudden traffic increase, your project stays online and loads quickly.

Does Web Hosting come with a domain name?

All our Web Hosting packages include a free domain name registration for one year. Choose from .com, .co.uk, .uk and .london.

I already have a domain name – can I use it with Web Hosting?

You can use your existing domain name with Fasthosts Web Hosting. You just need to transfer it to Fasthosts with our free domain transfer service, and point it to your Web Hosting package. You can find guides to help you do this on our support site.

How can I create a website?

A website can be designed and created in a variety of ways, and Fasthosts offers a full range of options. Content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal allow the creation, publication and editing of everything from basic sites to complex web projects. Our OneClick Installer makes it simple to launch a ready-to-use CMS, and is included with all Web Hosting packages. For less technical users, the Fasthosts Website Builder enables easy website creation via a drag-and-drop interface and a wide choice of customisable templates.

Can I create more than one website with Web Hosting?

The Ignite Web Hosting package allows you to host one website, Momentum allows you to host three, and the Ultimate package allows you to host up to 100 websites. Whatever scale you need, Fasthosts Web Hosting offers a solution.

Can I use applications like WordPress with Web Hosting?

You're free to use your application of choice on Fasthosts Web Hosting. To get started instantly, our OneClick Installer provides a simple way to launch content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, plus other apps for building forums, online shops, wikis and more.

What technical knowledge do I need to use Web Hosting?

Uploading your website to our Web Hosting platform requires knowledge of FTP (the File Transfer Protocol). Guides are available on our support site to help you with this. OneClick apps for content management systems like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal can simplify website creation, but you will need some knowledge of the software to use it effectively.

What is the difference between Web Hosting and Dedicated Servers?

With Web Hosting, we manage server resources to provide each customer with a portion of processing power and memory to run websites and applications. With a Fasthosts Dedicated Server, you get a whole customisable server all to yourself.

What is the difference between Linux and Windows?

In terms of Web Hosting, there isn’t a huge difference between Linux and Windows. Your choice will most likely come down to which tools you prefer to use. For example, if you want to build websites with WordPress or you need to use advanced scripting like Ruby or Python, Linux is usually the best option. But if your project requires ASP.NET or other Microsoft-based technologies, you should probably select Windows. If you change your mind, it's possible to transfer at any time; our storage technology works with both Linux and Windows, so there's no need to migrate your data.

How secure is Web Hosting?

Fasthosts Web Hosting is built on highly secure technology. Our UK data centres feature advanced security measures, both online and physically, with 24/7 monitoring by expert engineers and ISO 27001 accreditation. All Web Hosting packages benefit from DDoS protection systems, and both the Momentum and Ultimate packages come with a GeoTrust SSL certificate with 256-bit encryption, free for the first year.

How can I get help with Web Hosting?

Fasthosts Web Hosting is supported by a dedicated team of technical experts, available to help with all aspects of the platform, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Contact us on +44 (0)333 0142 700 or visit our support site for more details.
