Web Hosting FAQs

If you’re a seasoned pro on web hosting, feel free to skip this section, but if you’re seeking a little demystification of the concept, read on. Website hosting is a service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible to the Internet. When you create a website, you need a place to store all the files that make up your website, such as the HTML files, images, and videos. Website hosting provides you with a server where you can store these files and make them available to users via the Internet.

Website hosting is important because it allows you to make your website accessible to users around the world. Without hosting, your website will not be visible to anyone except yourself. Choosing the right hosting provider and plan is important for the success of your website, as it can affect the speed, reliability, and security of your website.

If you have registered your domain name with another registrar, but you want to host with Local Leap, you can still point your domain to our website hosting server. This is done by updating the DNS (Domain Name System) records for your domain.

DNS records are essentially a map that connects your domain name to your website hosting server. When a user types your domain name into their web browser, the DNS records tell their computer where to find your website files on the hosting server.

Updating the DNS records to point to a new website hosting server is a relatively quick process. You will need to access the DNS records for your domain, either through your domain registrar or through your hosting provider, and update the “name servers” or “A records” to point to your new hosting server. Once these changes have been made, it may take a few hours for the DNS updates to propagate and for your website to become accessible at the new location.

Updating the DNS records allows you to maintain ownership of your domain name and point it to a new website hosting server, without having to transfer the domain registration to a new registrar. This can be a convenient option if you want to change hosting providers or move your website to a new server, while still retaining control of your domain name.

Migrating your website can be a complex process, and using a third-party plugin may not always be the most reliable option. It’s possible that not all of your data will be transferred, which could lead to data loss if you’re not careful. To ensure a smooth and successful migration, it’s best to entrust the task to our team of experts. All we need is a login to your current hosting company or a backup with the MySQL database and WordPress files.

With Local Leap, you’ll receive updates on the status of your migration from our team. We strive to minimize downtime during the migration process, and we’ll give you the opportunity to inspect your migrated website before it goes live. Trust us to handle the technical details and give you peace of mind.

There are a few different types of website hosting, including shared hosting, VPS (virtual private server) hosting, and dedicated server hosting. Shared hosting is the most affordable option, where your website shares a server with other websites. VPS hosting is a mid-level option that offers more resources and customization than shared hosting, but is still more affordable than a dedicated server. Dedicated server hosting is the most expensive option, but it provides the most resources and control, as you have a server dedicated solely to your website.
