Frequently Asked Questions
Does AlliedHosting offer cPanel "Control Panel" to manage my website?
Yes, AlliedHosting features a best user interface that is available to manage your account. We provide a FREE and fully integrated system to our Shared Hosting and Reseller accounts. Our hosting accounts feature cPanel which is the industry leading control panel and provides access to your domains, SSL certificates, and other hosting account features where you can manage your web hosting.
What is the difference between an IP-based and name-based hosting?
Name-based hosting is when hosting sites share a single IP address, with site traffic directed by the server to the appropriate hosting account by examining ‘host headers’. IP-based hosting accounts come with a unique IP address that is not shared with anyone else. At any time, for an additional $2 per month, you can convert a name-based account to an IP based account.
There are many benefits of having dedicated IP, to name a few for IP based hosting are:
- Having your own SSL certificate and using your own domain name for Secure Socket Layer “SSL” access.
- Anonymous FTP (file sharing) for your visitors is not possible under name-based hosting.
- There are scripts and software out there that require a unique and dedicated IP.
Can I change my account from name-based to IP-based?
Absolutely, if your account is on a plan that is name-based and you would like it to be IP-based, you can do so by logging into your client panel and ordering an IP address add-on for your hosting service. This will only cost an additional $2 per month; or sign up for plans that include FREE IPs such as VPS hosting.
What is AlliedHost's DNS "Nameserver" information?
The following is AlliedHost’s “Nameserver” DNS information. You can use this when registering a new domain name or modifying an existing domain name.
- Primary Name Server: NS5.ALLIEDSERVE.COM
- Secondary Name Server: NS6.ALLIEDSERVE.COM
Do you support mySQL?
Yes. All of our servers support MySQL database.
How can I edit a mySQL database table without creating an application?
cPanel allows you to use phpMyAdmin to edit mySQL tables through the use of SQL query language.
Do you support CGI/Perl scripts?
Yes, every site comes with its own CGI-BIN to allow you to run your own perl scripts.

Finding a web hosting company that you can trust has become an extremely hard task now a days! I really don't want to open our web hosting wounds, but am truly pleased with what I've seen and experienced with allied so far. Thank you for being true and as helpful as you have been, you guys are No. 1 in my book. : )

We've experienced many problems with our previous web hosting companies, daily server down times, lack of adequate support, slow server and what have you. We found Allied Services around 6 months or so ago, though I was apprehensive to move to another host, went ahead and gave them a try. Thankfully have nothing but good to say about them, grateful for their customer service, excellent support when I needed it, true optimized server and no down time that I know of. Thank you very much for caring and running a real hosting compmnay!

I'm not a wiz in web hosting, but I needed my website up and running. I was given instructions that was simple enough for me to follow and upload my initial website. I've never had any problem with folks at allied services group, found them to be very helpful and forthcoming, I would definitely recommend their services!
