Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is web hosting?

Web hosting is a service provided to you so that your website has a place to reside on the Internet. Just like your business needs an office or store front, your website's data (html pages, jpeg pictures, videos, etc) needs a place to be stored so that your site visitors can view your web pages. Your website is stored on a server. Your PC could actually do this but it would be slow and would always need to be on and managed. Since this is usually not sufficient, website owners look to a Web Hosting company to store and protect their site. That is the main service of Hooked Up Hosting. When you need a secure, fast loading website - we "Hook You Up"

2. What is a domain name?

Well in order to have a website, you need a name for it. Your website's name works something like a phone number. It is the address where visitors type in their browser to visit your site. This is seperate from Web hosting. Domain names are usually purchased for a year or more, and by registering that domain name, you have complete control of it. You can host it wherever you like. Hooked Up Hosting provides not only Web Hosting but Domain name registration as well. You can get everything you need in one place, because after all, "We Hook You Up"!

3. Why does your site look messed up in my old ancient browser?

If you are using older browsers such as Internet Explorer 6 or 7, our site will not display correctly. This is because our site is built using the latest Web language, HTML 5. Older browsers do not support this very well. The reason we chose to design our site in HTML 5 is that it is the new Web standard and will be fully adopted by all systems by 2014. Older browsers are security risks as well. So we highly recommend that you upgrade your browser so that our site looks great and your PC will be much more safe. We like to "Hook You Up", not mess you up.
