FAQ’S

What is web hosting?

Web hosting is the ability for you to use hardware and infrastructure on our premises to host or manage your websites online on the world wide web. AWebOnline.com own and manage a data centre and server farm in both the UK and Thailand that we allocate and allow you to use for a set monthly fee.

What is shared web hosting?

Almost all web hosting packages available online is known as shared hosting. The easiest way to describe shared hosting would be to compare a web server to a large skyscraper apartment block with for example 300 private 3 bedroom apartments.

Imagine you are a family of 4 who are living in one of the 300 rooms in an apartment block. You would not have the need to live in the other 299 rooms or require the space in the rooms, run the electric, run water or park 1 car in 300 parking slots. A web server is pretty much the same. It is simply unnecessary for an average site to require such a large server when it might only use 0.1% of the actual resources on that server.

So AWebOnline group all customer sites onto shared servers and we ensure each and every server is runs smoothly by not cramming them but intelligently grouping them.

All our company websites run and function alongside yours on the same shared servers.
