Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to some frequently asked questions about hosting:
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service provided by companies (the web host) that sell or lease space on a server where you store the files that make your website accessible on the internet. These companies typically require that you own a domain, and they may help you purchase one.
Do I need a domain name?
A domain name provides you with a unique identity on the Internet that you can use with both your website and email. Iridis web hosting requires a domain, we can register it on your behalf or it can be registered with another provider.
What is shared hosting?
Shared hosting is a popular hosting option where a provider hosts multiple websites on one physical web server. Typically, most websites do not use many server resources, so shared hosting offers a great value solution.
Is shared hosting secure?
Iridis use CloudLinux OS whch is optimised to provide secure shared hosting by placing each client in a Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) which provides enhanced isolation and prevents a one client impacting the performance of all others.
How do I create and a manage a website?

Will Linux hosting work with Windows or MacOS ?
Iridis hosting plans are standards compliant so will work even if you manage your website or access email using a Windows or MacOS based computer. Android and iOS based tablets and devices work too!
How can I accept credit cards online?
Our hosting services are a great place to setup your online presence and product catalog. You can then work with a third-party provider such as Stripe or PayPal to process payments securely in conjunction with your iridis hosting.
What are inodes?
Linux servers use iNodes to represent files and folders on disk. As there is a finite number of iNodes available to a server we give you a generous allowance to store your website files and emails. irdis are transparent so advise the limit as part of the account specifications.
What are RAM, vCPU and processes?
Each hosting account is provided with a set of resources to power your website(s). The larger the footprint or busier the site the more resources you will consume. It is easy to track usage via our DirectAdmin control panel.
Why should I avoid unlimited website hosting?
Unlimited web hosting for 99p per month looks great but lets think about it for a moment! There are no unlimited capacity SSD, no unlimited capacity RAM and no unlimited capacity CPUs. So, either you will encounter a hidden fair use policy that limits your usage or your website will be slow and unreliable. As your website will be representing you it is important it is fast and reliable, so give it the home it deserves - iridis.
