Hosting Space Explained

Also see information on domain names.

“Web Hosting” is a service provided by many companies who offer a physical location for the storage of web pages and files. An e-mail / web-mail service is usually included. Web hosting companies rent physical disc space on their computers (called servers) allowing web pages to be viewed via the Internet. The hosting packages vary considerably in features, capacity and of course price.

MIP Websites include their own hosting packages and associated e-mail services at very competitive rates as part of any website design project they undertake.

However, MIP Websites is happy to work with most suppliers providing they offer the following:

  • Linux (or Unix) hosting packages
  • PHP5 with SOAP support
  • MySQL 5 database support
  • MySQL web interface (normally offered phpMyAdmin)
  • Some form of stats package
  • E-mail and Webmail services
