frequently asked questions
Can I host a website on Email only hosting?

No.  Email only hosting does not allow for websites and databases.  This is ideally for those who host their websites with 3rd party providers.

Can I upgrade from Email only to Web hosting?

Short answer.  Yes!
We would have to take a backup and migrate the Emails to the web hosting plan.
Simply send us a request to assist with the upgrade.

How does DirectAdmin compare to cPanel?

The short answer is that it compares very favorable in most aspects. DirectAdmin https://www.directadmin.com/ is an extremely flexible, stable and fast hosting panel that also runs on Linux as has proven to be very reliable over the last couple of years.

Will I be able to keep my Email history when I migrate to Serious.host?

Absolutely!  All Email messages and attachements are migrated to our hosting environment, prior to transfer of your domain.  Your folder structure will also remain intact, so no need for concern.

What if I only use Webmail?

Your Webmail interface will always be accessible, no matter where you are, as long as you have an internet connection.  Roundcube is also optimized for mobile devices and therefore super easy to navigate.
