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), and in order to visit the site, your laptop or your phone connects and downloads the site from the server where it is being hosted.

The web hosting providers, and Hosterion is one of them, install servers in data centers, provide 24/7 monitoring and hardware and software maintenance related to such servers.

The customers load the files of their website through FTP and use cPanel to create database, email boxes, subdomains etc. The hosting provider provides technical assistance for the use of FTP, cPanel, of the email service and of other facilties provided by the hosting service.

In order to have an online website 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 web hosting or web hosting service

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

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

The web hosting packages include now the LiteSpeed web server. You benefit from higher loading speed for your website. LiteSpeed runs PHP by means of a more efficient method and uses new versions of the data transmission protocols: HTTP/2, QUIC, TLS/1.3, as well as a modern data compression algorithm (Brotli).

Choose where your website is going to be hosted

A peculiarity of our web hosting service is that you can choose the data center of the physical location of the Hosterion server on which your website will be hosted. Even if all Hosterion employees are in Romania and we can provide 24/7 assistance in Romanian (or English), we send our servers in several data centers in the world, so you can choose the most adequate location.

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 a beginner with my site?

The recently launched sites have, usually, small traffic and require less storage space. It is recommended that you consult with your web development team regarding the hosting package choice. Our colleagues are also available for you, 24/7, and they can heelp you choosing 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 web projects. And if this package becomes too small, you can always upgrade it to the next package.

What hosting package should I choose if I already have an online site?

If you already have an online site and you want to get our hosting service, check the amount of space covered by your site and how many resources (memory and processor) you have currently allocated. And choose a package that has at least as many resources included, taking into consideration also the problems you encounter with the current service. If you want to improve the performance of your site, you must choose a package with more processing power and more allocated memory.

Which is the difference between domain and hosting?

An internt 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 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 (you don't have to registrate it as well). Hosting (web hosting or "găzduire web") is the service that stores the site's files and data and serves them when the visitors enter the domain in the 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 a better flexibility when installing and setting up software packages and software libraries, we recommend you 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 don't 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 refund guarantee?

Yes. If you are not satisfied with our hosting service in the first 30 days, you can give it up and you can ask for full refund. You don't have to give any explanation regarding you decision. Still, we will ask you how can we improve our hosting services.

If you need a performance boost for your WordPress website, you want to easily manage the WordPress install and 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 package.

High-performance web server: LiteSpeed

LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is a proprietary web server, the fourth most popular web server software. In August 2019, 4.7% of the websites around the world were estimated to be using LiteSpeed. The software uses the same configuration format as Apache and provides the most Apache facilities.

LiteSpeed provides a higher speed for your website's loading.

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

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

Web hosting service protected by BitNinja

Cyber attack threat on websites is omnipresent.Web hosting clients must update regularly their websites in order to remedy the emerging security vulnerabilities. We come to meet our clients' requirements with an additional security layer provided by the BitNinja software.

BitNinja is a ready installed and configured security tool on the Hosterion servers (of shared web hosting, Magento web hosting and Premium web hosting). This system stops a good part of the attackers trying to get access with the prupose of modifying your website.

The security measures automatically applied to your web hosting account include:

  • WAF (Web Application Firewall) detects and prevents SQL injection-type attacks, directory traversal, XSS, remote file inclusion, code injection, on-site and cross-site request forgery, buffer overflow, unvalidated file upload
  • IDS (Intrusion Detection System)
  • automatic detection and removal of the malware code
  • blocking access for the low reputation IPs (using a global IP database)
  • preventing the exploitation of the known system vulnerabilities (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.)

Web hosting on IPv6

Hosterion infrastructure is ready for the future: it works both on the classical IPv4 and on IPv6. The standard IPv4 appeared in the '70s. It's no wonder that this version has reached its limits and the appearance of a new version was necessary, with enough numbers (IP addresses) to deal with the multitude of internet connected devices. The web hosting packages include an IPv6 dedicated address, with no additional cost, 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, day or night, to perform the migration.

* The web hosting account migration is free when transferiing cPanel account entirely to newly created cPanel account, by Full Backup (the Full Backup function must be active, you need to have enough space to generate a full backup and full access to the DNS area). If the previous provider does not use cPanel or the Full Backup function is not active, a manual migration is required, which is not done for free, ususally. Likewise, the migrations from the cPanel account to addon domain or addon domain to addon domain are not free. We will assess every individual and specific situation and we will inform you about the transfer method and about the costs.

99.9% hosting uptime

We guarantee you an availability of the web hosting service of 99.9% per year.

24/7 support

The sites we host are monitored continuously, and our colleagues from the wen hosting technical service department work 12/24, 12/48 shifts. Thus, there will always be a technician available and, at the same time, our employees benefit from free days to be able to rest.
