The most Frequently Asked Questions about Web Hosting, can be found below:
Web hosting is the storing and serving of content to users that accesses a website by means of its uniqe domain name. A website needs a web hosting account, as no site can live on the Internet without a web server.
A web hosting service provider provides a service to customers. The customer pays a monthly fee to the web hosting service provider and in turn the customer owns and operates a piece of the web servers. Web hosting allows you to rach the world wide web.
Your unique domain name (i.e. http://bwscloud.tech) will point to your website's pages. The content that makes up your website is kept on a web hosts' infrastructure. The web host will ensure that your content is backed up, secure and loaded every time someone accesses your domain name.
If you register with BWS Hosting, we will provide you with the tools needed to keep your website up and running.
You can register with BWS Hosting through our simple ordering process. BWS will provide you with simple and cost affordable hosting packages. You can also select to sign up for a new domain name or transfer an existing one to BWS.

Web hosts are companies that rent out their services and technologies to host websites on the internet. Once the hosting company hosts your website, users can access it by typing in your web address (domain name) in their web browser. When they do this, their computer connects to the server hosting your website. In turn, the server serves (sends the files you have stored on the storage to display) the website to your web visitor in their web browser.
Yes, we offer different types of hosting services:
Web Hosting: At BWS, this is our most basic type of hosting. It is cost-effective and the best choice for most websites. Our solution shares resources with other websites on virtual servers. This means that individuals do not have to carry the costs of dedicated equipment, and BWS can scale the resources to meet the demand. You can also register a domain, without any hosting account. This will allow you to retain ownership of a unique domain name.
Reseller Hosting: Reseller hosting is an option that involves one company (a hosting provider) renting hard drive space and bandwidth to another company (small-mid size business), who then rents the space to third parties (entrepreneurs-small business). Simply put, reseller hosting can provide hosting to your clients as if you were the web hosting company. This is a trendy option amongst Digital Agencies and Web Development companies.
Custom Hosting Solutions: A bespoke/unique setup that caters specifically to customer's requirements. Custom hosting is usually a dedicated, custom-built setup than can be 1 to many dedicated servers per customer. These solutions typically include fault-tolerant and auto-scaling options.
This will depend on your website requirements.

MySQL is an open-source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). Benefits include its ease of use, the low total cost of ownership, flexibility, scalability, availability of tools, and lastly, it is robust and very secure. MySQL has stand-alone clients that allow users to interact directly with a MySQL database using SQL. More often, MySQL is used with other programs to implement applications that need relational database capability.
Many of the world's largest and fastest-growing organizations including Facebook, Google, Adobe, Alcatel Lucent and Zappos, rely on MySQL. These organizations use it to save time and money, while MySQL powers their high-volume websites, business-critical systems and software. BWS uses MySQL, and all of our Hosting packages come with at least 1 MySQL Database.
