Fastdot's cPanel Hosting is geared towards any type of user; whether you're a beginner looking to setup a few emails, a small business owner or designer looking to run an online store or personal blog, or an advanced user who requires root-like control with free SSH access.

Truly Cloud Based
Fastdot's product team have worked hard to deliver a truly cloud based cPanel platform. Leveraging four locations worldwide and combining compute, storage and infrastructure services from AWS (Amazon Web Services) and our own OnApp infrastucture, we were able to deliver a unique web-hosting solution that competes on a global scale. This means you have the ability to target your audience no matter where they are, without having to switch between other providers.
How does web hosting work?
Once you purchase a Web hosting plan, Fastdot 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 cPanel Web 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.
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.
What can I use to build my website?
You can build your website in several different ways – from hand-coding with HTML to using a website builder program.
If you require a lot of functionality and versatility from your website, you’ll benefit from programs and applications that can help you build your site. Our Web hosting plans give you access to free, server-side applications that can be used to develop and customize your website, including popular Content Management System (CMS) applications like WordPress® and Joomla!®. You can even add a Dedicated IP if you plan to add an SSL Certificate later.
How do I transfer my web pages to your server?
If you’ve built your website in a HTML editor, like Dreamweaver or Microsoft Expression Studio, you have to upload your website files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
We have a built-in FTP File Manager that you can access in our Hosting Control Center.
However, if your files are larger than 20 MB, we recommend using the tool FileZilla, which works with Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® operating systems, or another third-party FTP client.
For more information, see Uploading Files to Your Website (FTP).
If I already have a website, can I transfer it to your web hosting?
Moving your website to Fastdot 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.
If you have any questions along the way, our 24/7 support team is here to assist you. We can help you determine the best method for transitioning your website to a Fastdot account.
