Simply put, web hosting is the server your website lives on so that is available from anywhere on the Internet. At HotHouse we run our own web hosting servers.
The Technical Stuff
Our web hosting servers are based in Auckland in a modern tier-1 datacenter with multiple redundancy network connections from all major NZ bandwidth providers and backup power supplies. This means your site is always online and responds quickly to page requests from your visitors.
The HotHost webservers run a modern, stable, industry standard Debian Linux operating system, with a full LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack of software that provide a solid platform for your website.
Running our own web hosting server allows us to respond quickly to patch emerging security vulnerabilities, have full control over server performance and eases the transition of moving websites from our testing site to a live production status. It also cuts out the middle man so we can pass cost savings on to you. HotHost is configured to run HotStart, HotWeb, HotShop and custom web hosting packages seamlessly.
HotHouse can also provide custom web hosting, dedicated server and web server system administration services. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
HotHouse can register your domain name (eg:www.yourname.co.nz) with appropriate authorities. We offer a full range of domain names (.co.nz, .org.nz, .net.nz, .com, .org., .cc, .tv, .com.au etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.) to meet your requirements.
All of our web hosting packages provide you with email accounts you can use with your domain name and all email services we provide are spam filtered for your convenience.
