Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between Shared & Business Hosting?
Shared Hosting is a regular low-cost web hosting solution suitable for the vast majority of personal and small business web sites, and is provided under our Solo and Startup plans. For those customers with demanding or high traffic sites, or for those looking to host a web site with faster speeds, Business Hosting is recommended – these are all the plans with “Performance” in the title. These plans include more resources (up to 5 CPU Cores & 8GB RAM) and also include caching technology to make sites incredibly fast, with LiteSpeed server-side page cache, along with Redis and Memcached backend caches.
We’d recommend our Business hosting plans for e-commerce stores, high traffic sites, or for those customers who want to leverage our server side caching technology so that their site loads as fast as possible.
Does your hosting come with a control panel?
Yes, your hosting comes packed with the world’s number one control panel, cPanel. You can read more about cPanel here.
Can I upgrade my account if I need to?
Yes you can upgrade at any time. If you are upgrading from Shared Hosting to Business Hosting we will need to migrate your account to a different server and will arrange a convenient time to do this for you with minimal downtime.
Do I need to transfer my domain to you?
We offer extremely competitive pricing on domain names that is often much cheaper than at other registrars. If you prefer, you can still host with Kualo and keep your domains at any registrar you choose.
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
Yes, we provide a no quibble 60-day money back guarantee on any hosting fees. If you registered or transferred a domain name, these fees are non-refundable but you would be able to use your domain with any other provider. If you received a free domain with your plan, we will refund all your fees less our standard fee to register the domain that you received for free.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept Mobile Money, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal. We do not support automated recurring billing via PayPal so if you are paying month-to-month we would strongly recommend using a credit or debit card.
Will my account be backed up?
We take an automatic backup on a daily basis for all accounts. Customers on our Startup and Performance plans can restore files directly from these backups via your control panel, as well as initiate on-demand snapshots of their account.
The automated backups we take are strictly speaking for the purposes of full server restoration, and as per our terms, we do not guarantee the availability of these backups. We would therefore recommend that customers purchase our professional backup solution, CodeGuard, which will take a daily backup and enable you to automatically restore your site or individual files as needed. CodeGuard can be added during the order process.
What billing cycles do you offer?
You can pay monthly or for 1, 2 or 3 years up front. If you decide to pre-pay, we give you some great discounts on our ongoing pricing. A one year prepayment gives you 2 free months, a 2 year prepayment gives you 6 free months and a 3 year prepayment gives you a whole year free!
