Frequently Asked Questions
What is web hosting?
A web hosting platform enables you to publish your website over the world wide web for everyone to view and browse by just typing in your domain name. All you have to do is sign-up for a suitable web hosting package depending upon the size of your website and upload its pages after the hosting package is setup.
What can I do with a web hosting account?
You can host any type of website you wish to. Websites can be broadly classified into two main types, Business & Personal websites. At AvonHost, we offer hosting solutions for all types of personal or business websites, hobby sites, blogs, small, medium and large eCommerce stores or corporate websites. We even help you choose the right hosting package if you are unsure of which one to choose.
How long does it take to setup the web hosting account?
Once you have placed the order and made the payment for the domain name / web hosting account, the setup will be initiated right away. You will receive all account information through email after setup is completed.

I already own a domain name, can I use it with the new web hosting account?
Yes you can. Even if you have your domains already registered elsewhere, you can sign up for any web hosting package with us to host 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.avonhost.com and our sub-domains are – my.avonhost.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 AvonHost.
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 avilable 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.
