What is Web Hosting
For a website you need 1) an address to locate the page, the so-called domain, and 2) a place for the website. Web hosting describes the provision of this space, the so-called web space on the server.
What is a Web Server
A web server is a server, which transfers your website and its documents to a browser such as Google Chrome, Safari, Edge oder Firefox. Computers with the web server software installed are referred to as web servers.
What is HTTPS
https stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure and is a communication protocol on the internet. It encrypts the data transmission between the website and the visitor. This ensures that the data shared cannot be read by unauthorised third parties. Domains protected with SSL certificates are accessed via https://.
What is an SSL certificate (Why do you need SSL encryption)
With an SSL certificate you ensure trust for your website visitors. With the digital certificate, the identity of your website can be authenticated by the user and information can be sent to the server in encrypted form using SSL technology. Most browsers currently no longer open websites without an SSL certificate.
How much storage space do I need for a website or webshop
A basic installation of a CMS uses around 50-200 MB of web space. In addition, there are individual variable extensions, so-called plug-ins and the size of the website template used (also called theme). Depending on the requirements of the website with downloads, high-resolution videos, graphics or photos, the storage space varies. Our WEB Swiss hosting with 25 GB of storage space offers space for a fully equipped website and can be expanded with additional storage space as required.
How to install web hosting for my domain
The web hosting can be assigned individually via the user account of the respective domain. If you already have an existing web hosting with another provider, you can transfer your domain to Swizzonic as follows.

What does shared hosting mean
Shared hosting is hosting where several customer websites are created on one web server. The counterpart to this is dedicated hosting, where a customer rents an entire server.
