FAQs: Answers to frequently asked questions
What exactly does web hosting mean and why do I need it?
STRATO's complete hosting products provide you with everything you need to create a private or professional website on the internet. By purchasing a hosting product, you acquire storage space on servers in our data centers similar to storage space on your computer's hard drive. As a web host, we provide you with everything you require for the success of your web project. Without web hosting, nobody would be able to see your website. Our hosting products are easy to use, provide maximum speed, the highest degree of security, and are tailored to your individual needs. Every product includes mailboxes, unlimited traffic, and at least one domain. A domain is necessary so that people can find your website. You can also create dynamic websites, such as web shops and blogs, thanks to databases on SSD hard drives and the ability to run scripts. A website is also a company's calling card. Private individuals also enjoy introducing themselves on their own website, or they write a blog. From beginners to power users – STRATO Hosting has the right product for everyone.
Which is the right hosting product for me?
Before deciding on a product, you should determine the requirements your website needs to fulfill and how big it will be. The PowerWeb Starter and Basic options allow you to get your own online presence up and running quickly and easily. With up to 60 GB of web space, these products are ideal for private web projects and smaller projects. They enable you to create a professional website even without much programming skill and experience with layouts. Our table lets you quickly compare the relevant products to locate the one that perfectly suits your project. Our four hosting products differ not only in the amount of web space available, but also in the number of domains included, mailboxes, databases, web applications, as well as other features. For example, you should pick a larger product if you have more family members using email, or if you have a significant amount of traffic on your website. For more demanding requirements and dynamic websites, we recommend our PowerWeb Basic and Pro options. Not only do they provide up to 75 web apps and databases, they also come with up to 200 GB of web space. That way you can really let your creative juices flow. You also have the option of ordering additional TLDs, such as .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .name, .eu, .at and much more if you would like your website to have an international presence. If you are unsure as to which option you should pick for your website at the beginning, simply choose the one with the lowest price. You can then conveniently upgrade to a higher-tier product later on.
How do I create a website with STRATO Hosting?
There are various options for creating a website. With our web hosting products, we will provide you with access to applications which you can use to develop your website. It only takes a mouse click to install popular content management system (CMS) applications such as WordPress, Joomla!, TYPO3 and Drupal. If you would like your website to have a wide range of features and a high degree of flexibility, you should use various scripting languages (e.g. PHP or Perl), which will help you with creating your site. You will also require databases for dynamic pages. MySQL is currently the most popular open source database management system. MySQL databases are an important tool for managing, processing, and accessing large quantities of data. They are particularly important for websites with dynamic content.
Can I operate multiple domains in a single hosting product?
Yes. You have the option of forwarding multiple domains to a single website. Naturally, a hosting product also allows you to create multiple web projects under different domains or subdomains. Depending on the product, you will be able to operate anything up to an unlimited number of web presences at the same time. You can modify the main domain for your product, or remove, move, and order additional domains at any time in your STRATO customer portal.
What is FTP and how can I use it?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) lets you conveniently transfer data between your local computer and your hosting product. You will need an FTP client such as FileZilla to transfer data via FTP. It is child's play to connect with your STRATO web hosting product using this program. FTP is particularly suited to copying large amounts of data, such as images or videos.
