Web hosting is the process of renting space and bandwidth through a company to allow your website to be online. It means that you can publish your website on a hosting platform so that anyone in the world can visit your website on the web.
Some companies may offer you free hosting – this is usually done at the cost of forcing you to have their ads or pop-ups. This Ignite offering is designed to allow you complete freedom in how you choose to design your website.
Your hosting control panel is accessible once you’ve logged into the Ignite site under My Services. Locate your hosting service and click on "View". Under "Hosting Service Details", there is a button for "Control Panel".
Data transfer or bandwidth is the amount of information your visitors download from your site. Each time someone visits your site, the information contained on your website is transferred from the web server to your visitor's computer over their Internet connection.
A monthly traffic limit is the amount of data or bandwidth you are allowed to transfer in any given month. Generally, if you reach your traffic limit, your site will not be available until the beginning of the next month.
The most common way of uploading files to your site's account is by using FTP. When you sign up, you will be sent your FTP account and details that allow you to access files in your account.
You can then use an FTP tool to transfer your website files from your hard drive to your FTP account on the web server. You can use a dedicated FTP program such as WS_FTP, CuteFTP or FileZilla. If you prefer a web interface, you can use your account control panel's File Manager instead.
