Web Hosting FAQs

How do I get a Website up and running?

You need to order both web hosting and a domain name (if you do not already own one). The domain name (e.g. openhost.co.nz) points visitors to your web hosting, which enables you to upload your files, setup email and various other services.

Who owns the domain name if I register with you?

You do! Openhost is an authorised .nz registrar, this means we are held to very strict rules and policies ensuring your domain name is safe with us. All domains are registered in our customers names and can be transferred to other registrars if requested.

How do I choose between Linux and Windows hosting?

Generally speaking if you don't have a specific need for Windows hosting, then you are better off using Linux. Whilst Windows web hosting offers a number of exclusive features that developers use, if you don't need those features then Linux web hosting is more widely used and supports all popular website software such as Wordpress and Joomla. In terms of popularity Apache (which runs on Linux) is the most popular web server, ahead of Windows and other varieties such as Nginx. This means when you choose Linux web hosting you are in good company with around 64% of the world’s web sites!

Whether you use Linux or Windows web hosting the end user will not be able to tell the difference between the two operating systems. They will appear the same no matter which platform you use.
