Hosting FAQ

What is Web hosting?

Web hosting or hosting is a technology service that allows you to post information on the internet. This is done via computers with permanent internet connections. People then access your information from a computer with an internet connection and a Web browser.

How do I set up a website?

To set up a website on the Enlighten Hosting servers you must first sign up for your selected hosting plan (see: http://www.enlightenhosting.com/hosting-plans/

You will then be supplied an FTP login allowing you to upload your website files to the server. 

If you do not have an FTP programme you can simply send your website files to admin@enlightenhosting.com and Enlighten Hosting will handle all of the technical stuff for you.

What is FTP?

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the standard method for transferring files across the internet. 

Enlighten Hosting
would recommend you use a 3rd party FTP application such as Bullet Proof FTP.

Can I check the statistics of my site?
