Web Hosting : FAQ

 

G e n e r a l  Q u e s t i o n s:

Where are our servers located?
  Our servers are located in California, USA. Our Office is located in India. The WHOIS data gives information regarding the company and not about our servers.
   
How long have you been in business and are you reliable ?
  ComputingHost was launched on 10 October, 2004.

ComputingHost has been operating a local Web Hosting business in India.

ComputingHost provides hosting to thousands of free sites hosted by Trap17, AstaHost and Qupis. Thjs gave us opportunity to deal with abuses, phishing, bruteforces etc. which inturn gave us a good experience in server security. We have been using this experience to protect our customers data and ensuring them a greater level of satisfaction.

ComputingHost has successfully dispatched its first advertising server project in 2005.

In 2007, We researched and dispatched our first cluster project successfully delivering 10 Million hits a day.

Not a single customer of ComputingHost till date has ever complained about his money being ever retained by us. We have always been honest with our customers and believe in earning every penny by genuine service, honesty and hard work.

ComputingHost is a member company of Xisto and with a strong backbone and support, Our clients are assured that their work is in safe hands. Customer satisfaction has been and will always be our prime priority.
   
Why do you have all features called "unmetered" ? What does it mean?
  We don't say we provide Unlimited features, because there is no such thing called unlimited. All servers have limitations. Generally, When web hosts say that, they provide unlimited features, they actually mean, they don't cap them and it is rather Un-METERED.
   
So, Having Unmetered add-on and parked domains mean, I can host as many sites as I want with just one account ?
  Yes, However, Each account will _NOT_ have its own Cpanel. For such type of a feature, you will have to go for reseller hosting.
   
How come Windows Accounts also provide PHP and CGI, Why should I opt for Linux based hosting?
  If your site uses php, perl, MySQL etc, We recommend using Linux Hosting. These technologies provide much faster performance on Linux servers and are more stable. Windows server will *not* have Extensive Add-on Modules and Extensions for these languages. Running those applications on Windows server can be risky and might open security holes for hackers to abuse.

Windows Hosting is recommended for users who are planning to deploy their website coded with ASP and other Windows based technologies. However, PHP and CGI function is provided for members to run simple scripts and applications.

   
Are there any contracts ? What if I want to terminate ? How long does it take to process refunds (money back guarantee) ?
  There are no Contracts. Clients are free to terminate whenever they want. We do not force them to complete any paperwork. Incase, the client wishes to terminate before 30 days from the date of signup, Full 100% refund will be processed and sent back to the client within 2 working days.

The domains registered through us have their separate Control panel and Clients can easily manage it without having to transfer them elsewhere.

Domain registration charges are not covered in the money back guarantee.

   
Why don't I get CPanel Control panel  for Windows Accounts?
  CPanel Control panel is available only for Linux Servers. Windows accounts have another Control panel called Helm.
   
How long does it take to setup an account at ComputingHost?
  Once payment is received, your account is activated instantly. However, If you may have to wait for your domain to propagate to our servers. *Due to ongoing issues of fraudulent payments, We have installed strict security checks. Instant Activations are subject to the availability of our Sales Techs.
