The main difference for our customers is the support for different programming languages and databases. While the .NET framework and MSSQL databases are only available on windows platforms, PostGreSQL is only supported by our linux hostings packages.
Can an existing webhosting package be upgraded?
If the upgrade is within the same hosting category (for example an upgrade from SH 500 to SH 2500) this is perfectly possible. If however, you want to move to another kind of hosting (for example from standard hosting to linux pro hosting), the compatibility of your web site has to be checked first. Extra charges may apply if we have to take care of the migration process, please contact us for a quote.
When is a professionel hosting needed instead of a standard package?
Our standard hosting infrastructure is optimized for a large number of small websites with a moderate amount of visitors. Our professionel hosting solutions, however, provide a better performance and support for enterprise features such as SSL certificates or customizable backup schedules.
Are files stored on the web hosting accounts backed up?
Yes, we have scheduled daily backup tasks for every webhosting account. In standard hosting packages these backups are reserved for desaster recovery when our infrastructure fails. In case of a data loss caused by the customer, a fee may be charged upon recovery. Professional hosting solutions provide direct control for our customers over their backups. In standard hosting packages e-mail accounts are not backed up.
What is the difference between standard anti-spam and anti-spam pro?

Is illegal content or linking to illegal content allowed on web hosting accounts?
