Active Server Pages
Also known as Classic ASP, was Microsoft’s first server-side script engine for dynamically generated web pages. Initially released as an add-on to Internet Information Services (IIS) via the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack, it was subsequently included as a free component of Windows Server (since the initial release of Windows 2000 Server).
First you should define what plan you are looking for as technologies, server resources and so on, then to find a company which provide it, and click on the “Sign up” button which could also be “Create an account” or “Add to cart”, follow the next steps providing your users details and make the payment. Most companies will send you your new account credentials in a couple of minutes.
Usually you could make a payment via credit card or Paypal, some companies also offer additional methods as checks, bank transfer etc…
It should be very easy, in your control panel should be button called “Cancel” or “Terminate” the account. If not, then you should ask your provider about the steps.
No, this is not a mandatory, you could purchase your domain later. You will receive some virtual web address as by example your-server.webhostingbrowse.com, so you could use it to access your server.
To work your domain you should pointed it to your server, this could be done if you use the DNS records of your Web Host, or to create a new “A” or “cname” host records.
It could also take some time, the DNS propagation usually takes 12-24 hours.
It’s not difficult to migrate your website, you could backup (files, database, emails etc…) it first and after that to restore it to the new place. You could use for this the existing control panel (WHM/cPanel, Plesk) or to make it manually. Also to ask the new provider for assistance, many plans include as option – free site migration.
The most common method is to copy your files (scripts, images, styles) using an FTP client, the other option is to use the control manager -> File Manager or SSH/Remote Desktop connection. For the database you could create an install script or to use some of the SQL administration tools (for example phpMyAdmin).
There are 3 main choices that you can get – cPanel, Plesk and custom one. The most popular distributions are cPanel and Plesk, both provide similar features and tools (for example Linux OS support, good user interface, improved security), but Plesk has some advantages, because it has a version for Windows Server and its price is better.
It depends on factors as the number of expected visitors / page views, the number of website pages, the average page size / content (images, videos, texts etc…). You could purchase a Virtual plan, upload your sites and start monitoring the server parameters, and if needed to upgrade the resources as CPU / RAM / HDD, or to directly to get a Dedicated plan.
