Frequently asked Questions regarding NetOctave's webhosting services

    Getting Started:
  • Why do I need a web hosting ?
  • Most people like to own their own email address and websites. They don't like to have it setup on a free service.

    For example, when you have your own web hosting account, you can have email ids like yourfirstname@yourname.com or have your own blog with a url http://yourblogaddress.com. But when you set it up on a free provider, you get a url called yourname.somefreeprovider.com or an email address of the form yourname@somefreeprovider.com. Most people don't like this.

    A web hosting is for people who want to stay independent and do not believe in cutting corners or taking free ride at other people's expense.

    You can use your web hosting account to setup your own website / blog / email accounts. You can run a discussion forum or a photo gallery all in your own name.

  • What do I need to get started with Web hosting ?
  • First, you will need a domain name. If you already own an domain name, you can use that or you may register a new name with us at a very low price.

  • Now I have a domain name, what is the next step ?
  • Now you need to order a web hosting package from Net Octave and point your domain name to us. If you have ordered the domain name from us, everything will be taken care for you. If your domain name is with other registrar then you have to point them to our name servers. You will receive the details of our name server in your welcome mail.

  • Why are you so costly compared to many other web hosts ?
  • We provide our services on quality hardware including Raid10 disks that runs on latest Quad core servers. This makes us costly when you compare our price to vendors that provide their services on dual core servers or without Raid10 protection.

  • It depends on the plan that you purchase. Most high end plans do not have any restrictions other than the allotted disk space and bandwidth usage.
