What type of hosting account do I have?
Many of our hosting accounts offer different features from one another. Fortunately, your hosting account displays its type right in your account.
To Find Your Hosting Account's Type
- Log in to your Account Manager.
- Click Web Hosting.
Your hosting account's type displays in the Plan column, in the following format:
Hosting – Type – Level – Operating System – Billing Period
Let's break down what each of these mean:
- Hosting — All hosting accounts say that they're Hosting so you know which product you're looking at.
- Type — We offer different types of hosting that have different capabilities:
- Shared — Shared hosting has the largest language support. For more information, see Which components does my hosting support?
- Web — Web hosting uses our powerful Web Hosting platform. For more information, see Web Hosting Frequently Asked Questions.
- WordPress — WordPress® hosting comes with WordPress installed in its root directory and uses our Web Hosting platform.
- Level — Our different level of hosting accounts offer features you might need at the price-point you want:
- Economy — Host one website that supports most commonly-used programming languages.
- Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, and Ultimate — Host multiple websites that support speciality programming languages.
NOTE: While we offer unlimited domain aliasing on our Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, and Ultimate shared hosting accounts, we do not recommend using shared hosting for more than ten websites. Doing so taxes the server resources and hinders performance.If you want to change your hosting account's level, see Upgrading or Downgrading Your Hosting Account.
- Operating System — Your hosting account's operating system can limit the programming languages you can use:
- Linux — Supports PHP, CGI, Ruby on Rails, Python, and more.
- Windows — Supports PHP (IIS 7 only), ASP, MS SQL databases, and more.
- Billing Period — The original length of time you purchased for your account displays as your billing period. However, if you renew your hosting account for a different length of time, the billing period does not update. For an exact date, check out the Expiration column.
