Hosting Frequently Asked Questions
How does web hosting work?
Once you purchase a Web hosting plan, GoWestWebs.com stores your site on one of our servers and assigns it a unique DNS. The DNS serves as the address that allows people around the world to find and view your website. This unique address is required in order for people to view your site.
By purchasing a website hosting package, you’re basically buying space on one of our servers. It’s similar to the space on a computer’s hard drive, but the server allows your website’s files to be accessed from anywhere.
For more information, visit our Web Hosting product support page.
What kind of web hosting do I need?
We offer both Windows and Linux hosting. Which one you need depends on what you want to do with your site, like whether you want to create a shopping cart, host a podcast, or add a blog. If you’re not sure if you need Windows or Linux, you can always call GoWestWebs.com hosting support team at 480-624-2500. We’re here to help 24/7.

For more information, see Should I choose a Windows or Linux hosting account?
What can I use to build my website?
You can build your website in several different ways – from hand-coding with HTML to using a website builder program.
If you require a lot of functionality and versatility from your website, you’ll benefit from programs and applications that can help you build your site. Our Web hosting plans give you access to free, server-side applications that can be used to develop and customize your website, including popular Content Management System (CMS) applications like WordPress® and Joomla!®. You can even add a Dedicated IP if you plan to add an SSL Certificate later.
How do I transfer my web pages to your server?
If you’ve built your website in a HTML editor, like Dreamweaver or Microsoft Expression Studio, you have to upload your website files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). We have a built-in FTP File Manager that you can access in our Hosting Control Center.
However, if your files are larger than 20 MB, we recommend using the tool FileZilla, which works with Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® operating systems, or other third-party FTP clients.
For more information, see Uploading Files to Your Website (FTP).
If I already have a website, can I transfer it to your web hosting?
Moving your website to GoWestWebs.com is a simple process. If you have access to your existing website files, you can upload them through our Hosting Control Center or via an FTP client. If you don’t have a current copy of your website, you should be able to request one from your current website hosting provider.
If you have any questions along the way, our 24/7 support team is here to assist you. We can help you determine the best method for transitioning your website to a Sliplink Network account.
