How does web hosting work
Once you purchase a Web hosting plan, Pakdevs stores your site on one of our servers and assigns it a unique DNS. The DNS serves as the address that allows people around the world to find and view your website. This unique address is required in order for people to view your site.
By purchasing a website hosting package, you're basically buying space on one of our servers. It’s similar to the space on a computer’s hard drive, but the server allows your website’s files to be accessed from anywhere.
What kind of web hosting do I need?
We offer both Windows and Linux hosting. Which one you need depends on what you want to do with your site, like whether you want to create a shopping cart, blog or podcast with a specific Web application. If you're not sure if you need Windows or Linux, you can always call Pakdevs hosting support team. We're here to help 24/7.
The link below offers a simple, step-by-step guide to picking the best web hosting package for your site. Our different packages to find one that fits the size of your website and the traffic it generates. And as always, our award-winning 24/7 support can answer any of your questions.
If I already have a website, can I transfer it to your web hosting?
Moving your website to Pakdevs is a simple process. If you have access to your existing website files, you can upload them through our Hosting Control Center or via an FTP client. If you don’t have a current copy of your website, you should be able to request one from your current website hosting provider.
