What is web hosting?

Web hosting

Web hosting is a service that provides 24/7 online availability of a website. The site is hosted on a computer, namely the texts, the photos and other site-related information are stored on a computer (called "server", because it "serves" the site upon the visitors' request). When you visit the site, your laptop or your phone connects and downloads the site from the server where it is being hosted.

Web hosting providers, like Hosterion, install servers in data centers, provide 24/7 monitoring, hardware and software maintenance of the servers.

The site owners upload the files of their website through FTP and use cPanel to create database, mailboxes, subdomains etc. The hosting provider offers technical assistance for the use of FTP, cPanel, of the email service and of other features of the hosting service.

To have a website online, you need:

  1. an internet domain, such as or
  2. the site itself, namely the design, the content, the texts, the photos
  3. and a web hosting or a web hosting account

The web hosting services are paid as a periodic subscription: monthly, annually or other period of time.

Find out more about the web hosting services on the Wikipedia page.

Web hosting with LiteSpeed included

The web hosting packages now include the LiteSpeed web server, which offers a higher loading speed for your website. LiteSpeed runs PHP more efficiently, and uses new data transmission protocols: HTTP/2, QUIC, TLS/1.3, as well as a modern data compression algorithm (Brotli).

Choose where your website is hosted

With Hosterion, you can choose the physical location of data center where the hosting server is running. The closer the location of the hosting server to your targeted visitors, the faster your website is loading for them.

Hosting in Europe (Amsterdam)

The Equinix AM6 data center in Amsterdam is a great option if your website is mainly for the European public. Equinix AM6 is also well-connected to the visitors from all around the world.

We recommend Amsterdam, which has a central position in Europe, and the Equinix AM6 data center is extremely well-connected with the internet providers from all around the globe.

Backup included

Backup is essential when you choose a web hosting service. Is backup included? How often is the backup performed and for how long are the backup copies kept? For maximum safety, we store backups in a different city than your live hosting account. We keep several copies of your entire hosting account. Daily copies of the last 14 days, weekly copies of the last 4 weeks and 3 copies of the last 3 months. Backup is included with no additional cost with all the site hosting packages. You have the possibility to perform unlimited and free restores from backups for files, databases, or entire websites.

Web hosting with SSL included

All web hosting accounts include free SSL certificates for all domains hosted. You can create your own Let's Encrypt SSL certificates from cPanel, and later on they are renewed automatically, without any manual intervention. Read more about SSL Certificates.

Anti-Hack is a security package installed automatically for each client, and it includes protection against the best-known types of attacks, such as XSS.

All web hosting packages include Softaculous.

Email hosting

All packages include an unlimited number of mailboxes. The storage space included in the hosting account can be used for files and database, but also for email messages. Email hosting includes access via web mail, as well as through a computer or a mobile phone applications.

If you are looking for a more advanced email and collaboration solution we recommend Google Workspace or Business email hosting.

Every web hosting account includes a dedicated IPv6 address.

If your website uses Microsoft technologies, such as ASP.NET or SQL Server, you need a Windows web hosting package.

How do the site hosting servers look like?

web hosting servers

The websites are stored on special servers, mounted in telecom racks (metal cabinets) in data centers. The featured image is authentic, showing several racks from the data center in Bucharest; in each of them, there are Hosterion servers located. Hosterion has backup servers in the data center, therefore, in the unlikely event of a hardware malfunction in one of the live servers, the technicians present in the data center urgently move the SSDs with our customers' data in a backup server, to provide the highest uptime possible.

The high performance racks allow air circulation, ensuring the optimal temperature and humidity for the smooth running of the servers.

In the data center we use, the power supply systems, the cooling systems, the fire fighting, access control systems etc. are redundant, in order to ensure the 99,9% guaranteed uptime

For the provision of the physical security, a 24/7 guard is ensured, the access is only permitted based on a mag key and following the identification, the entrances and the hallways are video supervised and the racks are locked.

Frequently asked questions about the web hosting service

What hosting package should I choose if I am just starting up with my site?

The newly launched sites usually have low traffic and require a small storage space. It is recommended that you consult with your web development team regarding the hosting package choice. Our colleagues are also available 24/7 for you and they can help you choose the right package. If no special requirements are needed to be met, we recommend the Basic hosting package, which includes a generous amount of space and enough resources for start-up projects. You can upgrade anytime to a larger package.

What hosting package should I choose if I already have a website?

If you already have a website and you want to move to our hosting service, check the amount of space used by your current account and how much resources (memory and processor) you currently consume. Choose a package with at least the same level of resources included, also taking into account the problems you encounter with the current service. If you want to improve your website's performance, you must choose a package with higher processing power and memory.

What is the difference between a domain name and a hosting account?

An internet domain name is only a reserved address. If you have an internet domain, you can add to that address a web site, but it is not mandatory. In order to check if a domain is available, it is not enough to enter a domain in the browser and see if a site is loading. It is possible that the domain is reserved, but no hosting account is set up for that domain. To check the availability of a domain, use the domain registration form. The form will tell you if the domain is available for registration. Hosting (or "web hosting") is the service that stores the site's files and data and serves them when the visitors fill in the domain in their browser.

What can I do if I need to install a software that is not available in the web hosting packages?

The usual hosting packages (or "shared hosting") are an affordable and adequate solution for many web site owners. For more flexibility on installing and setting up software packages and software libraries, we recommend you choose a VPS or a dedicated server.

Is it possible for me to have a domain hosted with Hosterion if the domain is registered through a different provider?

Of course. We do not condition the use of our hosting services by the domain registration with us. The domain can be registered with any provider.

Do you provide a money-back guarantee for the shared hosting service?

Yes. If you are not satisfied with our shared hosting service in the first 30 days, you can ask for a full refund. You don't have to give any explanation regarding your decision. However, any feedback is highly appreciated.

If you need a performance boost for your WordPress website, or if you want to easily manage the WordPress installation, or if you want enhanced security protection for your website, have a look at our WordPress hosting packages.

Do you want more from the web hosting service?

If you need enhanced flexibility or more resources, choose a managed VPS or a dedicated server.

LiteSpeed - high-performance web server

The LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is a high performance, secure, easy-to-use web server, and can be used as a drop-in replacement for an Apache web server. It can handle thousands of concurrent connections with a small memory footprint, and can thwart incoming attacks with ease.

LiteSpeed provides a higher website loading speed.

High performance is achieved through a very efficient method of serving static content (images, CSS, JavaScript etc.), faster execution of the PHP code, modern content serving and compression protocols.

LiteSpeed is included with all hosting, Magento, premium, and WordPress hosting packages, and it is available for a fee with managed VPS-es and dedicated servers.

Web hosting service protected by BitNinja

Cyberattack threat on websites is omnipresent. Web hosting clients must constantly update their websites to remedy the emerging security vulnerabilities. We are meeting our clients' needs with an additional security layer provided by the BitNinja software.

BitNinja security tool is already installed and configured on the Hosterion servers (shared web hosting, Magento hosting, WordPress hosting and Premium hosting). This system stops a significant number of attackers trying to get access to your website's private data.

How BitNinja protects your website:

  • WAF (Web Application Firewall) detects and prevents SQL injection attacks, directory traversal, XSS, remote file inclusion, code injection, on-site and cross-site request forgery, buffer overflow, unvalidated file uploads
  • IDS (Intrusion Detection System)
  • automatically detects and removes malicious code (malware)
  • blocks access for low reputation IP addresses

Web hosting on IPv6

Hosterion infrastructure is ready for the future: it works both on the classical IPv4 and on IPv6. The standard IPv4 is in use since the '70s. It's no wonder that IPv4 has reached its limits and a new version was needed. IPv6 has much more numbers (IP addresses) to deal with the multitude of internet connected devices, is more secure and offers improved performance. The web hosting packages include a dedicated IPv6 address, and the connection through IPv4 is still available.

Free migration* of the web hosting accounts

If your website is already hosted by another provider, we take care of the migration with no downtime. We prepare and test the migration in advance, we choose together the right moment, to perform the migration.

* The web hosting account migration is free when transferring a full cPanel account to a newly created cPanel account using "Full Backup". The "Full Backup" function must be active at your current hosting provider, you need to have enough space to generate a full backup and full access to the cPanel DNS section. If the previous provider does not use cPanel or the "Full Backup" function is not active, a manual migration is needed. We can offer paid manual migrations. Migrating from a cPanel account to an addon domain or an addon domain to an addon domain is offered against a fee. We evaluate your specific transfer needs, we inform you about the recommended transfer method and if there is any cost involved.

We guarantee a 99.9% availability per year of our hosting service.
