What is cPanel hosting?
cPanel hosting is a type of shared hosting service where many web sites are stored on a single server. Each of the websites shares the resources (disk space, data transfer, cpu, memory etc.) available on that server. Users primarily have control panel (cPanel) access to their web hosting account, but do not have root level access to the server their account is hosted on. Overall management and maintenance of the server are the responsibility of the web hosting service provider.
Who should use cPanel web hosting?
cPanel web hosting is mostly useful for people who have small or medium size websites that do not require a lot of server resources. Sites that are 'mission critical' (commercial and other sites) often benefit from VPS hosting or dedicated hosting.
What are the advantages of cPanel hosting?
The first advantage of cPanel hosting is its cost. Given that a number of websites share the server resources, the cost of maintenance is shared between number of users. This brings the end user cost down considerably. MilesWeb offers 1 GB of SSD disk space and unlimited bandwidth for Rs 109 a month. Another advantage is that as the web host, we are responsible for managing the server. Technical support is available 24x7, if there are any issues with your website you can contact our team and get the issue fixed. This means that people with relatively few IT skills can still set up a hosting account and a web site.

What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting refers to the process of publishing a web site so that it is available to the world on the Web. Paid web hosting also involves getting a domain name and not having forced ads displayed on your site.
What is a domain name?
Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for computers on the Internet (such as MilesWeb.in). They correspond to a series of numbers (called Internet Protocol numbers) that serve as routing addresses on the World Wide Web. Domain names are used generally as a convenient way of locating information and reaching others on the Internet.
How long does it take to register or transfer a domain name?
It will take you just a few minutes to register a domain, but it might not be available on the Internet for up to 48 hours. This is due to the fact that Internet DNS databases are updated only once a day, causing the delay.
Does it make a difference what type of desktop computer I use?
No. Your hosting account has nothing to do with your local machine. To access the hosting cPanel account you will need a web browser and internet access.
I have a Windows operating system on my laptop, should I choose Windows hosting or Linux hosting?
Your laptop or desktop is a medium through which you connect to the hosting account. You should choose the web hosting package depending upon the type of website you will be hosting. If your website is built in HTML, PHP, MySQL then Linux hosting is recommended. For .NET websites you should choose Windows hosting. You can access the Linux hosting account from your Windows laptop. You get a graphical user interface to manage the Linux hosting account. You don't have to get into command prompt for managing the Linux hosting.
