Questions about Web Hosting?
We’ve got answers.
What is web hosting?
Without hosting, no one can see your website. To get your website online, you need to marry up your Groundwork hosting with a domain name and then upload your content. Once you purchase a Web Hosting plan, Groundwork 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 support page.
How do I build my website?
You can build your website in several different ways – from hand-coding with HTML and CSS 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 upload files to host on Groundwork?
If you’ve built your website in a code editor, like Dreamweaver, Visual Studio Code, or NotePad++, you have to upload your website files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). Conveniently enough, 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 a tool like CyberDuck or 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 Groundwork web hosting?
Moving your website to Groundwork 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 Groundwork account.
