I already own a domain name, can I use it with the new web hosting account?

I am being offered free domain name but I don’t want them, what do I do?
If you do not want a free domain, you do not have to do anything, you can simply choose not to use them.
What is a sub-domain?
A sub-domain adds the next level to your domain name. For instance, we own the main domain name – www.milesweb.com and our sub-domains are – tutorials.milesweb.com and affiliates.milesweb.com. Similarly, you can create sub-domains that point to different websites or different sub divisions of your website like a blog, forum or a support page. You can create as many sub domains as you want with any of the web hosting packages you purchase from MilesWeb.
What is a domain pointer?
A domain pointer allows you to point multiple domain names to a single website. In other words, you can upload, host and manage more than one website through a single web hosting package.
Which operating system should I select for my web hosting account?
Depending upon your website requirements or preferences, you can host your website either on Linux or Windows based web hosting. Both the operating systems have their own set of pros and cons and both of these server platforms are quite capable in terms of controlling the basic functionalities of your web hosting account. Your server operating system choice should not necessarily depend upon the operating system present on your home/business personal computer. The operating system that you select should be based on your website requirements. Most of the website owners prefer using Linux based web hosting and if you are not sure about which hosting platform to opt for, then opting for Linux is a smart choice. However, if your website requires Microsoft technologies like Microsoft SQL or ASP.NET, then you must opt for the Windows server based web hosting.
Is it necessary for me to maintain separate backups of my own data?
Although we take all the necessary precautions for safeguarding your data, we recommend you to also maintain offsite backups of your website data to be on a safer side. Backups are important because they protect your systems against the risk of failure of systems or against the issues that may be caused as a result of the changes made.
Can I install applications on my web hosting account?
Yes you can. All our cPanel hosting packages are equipped with a wide range of applications that you can choose to install from through Softaculous within cPanel control panel. If your desired application is not available as ready to install within Softaculous, you can install it on your own as long as the installation requirements of the applications are in sync with your web hosting package specifications.
How secure is MilesWeb hosting? Can I count on you?
We undertake every possible security measure to protect our systems from hacks, attacks, crashes, hardware malfunctions and any other kind of threats. All the servers are housed in our highly secure and fully equipped data center facility. Access to the servers is strictly kept under control and it is limited only to the concerned personnel.

Do you have a minimum contract period?
You can sign up for any hosting package on monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual or biennial contract depending upon your preference however you will not be bound by any minimum contract period.
What happens to my domains if I cancel the hosting?
It’s your call! If you do not wish to use or renew the domain names after cancellation of web hosting package, you can let them expire. However, if you want to keep the domain names even after cancelling the web hosting package, you can continue using them by paying the standard domain renewal charges.
