No technical expertise required! Plus, you’ll get fast notification when updates and patches are available. This free tool gives you one central place to manage all of your applications.

Free EasySite Web Design Software
Build a simple website quickly without any design or HTML skills. View EasySite Details »

Large Monthly Transfer Amounts to Support Extra Visitors [?]
This ensures that your visitors can simultaneously visit, download and engage with your site without ever slowing it down or costing you extra.

This is the amount of data that passes between the server where your website is hosted and your visitors.

How much Transfer do you need? Estimate your average page size w/ graphics MULTIPLIED BY # page views / month.

Example: average page size of 50 KB X 2000 page views per day = 3 GB per month. 1,000 GB = 1 TB

Guaranteed Server Resources [?]
Your site will load fast and consistently for every visitor. This service is unique to Verio!

Each Basic Web Hosting account comes with dedicated CPU resources (the processor that displays your data) and RAM (the memory) that feeds data to the processor. These resources help display your web pages quickly.

Dedicated IP Address [?]
Shared IP addresses are less reliable and can make your site load slowly. With a dedicated IP address this is not an issue. Plus you can add an SSL certificate for added security at any time.

A static or dedicated IP address is a specific, unchanging number sequence that is used every time to refer to your website on the Internet. Many hosting providers use a shared IP address or dynamic IP for all the websites on a server. This means that a different IP is assigned each time your website connects to the Internet, and this IP is shared by other sites on the server. If any of those other sites are banned by the search engines or spam lists, your site will be affected and lumped in as one of the offenders.

Automatic Site Backups
Backups are performed both nightly and weekly – so an archived version of your site is readily available.

Service & Satisfaction Guarantees [?]
Get reliable performance from our global IP network, our 99.9% server uptime guarantee and a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee.

Uptime is a percentage of time that your website will be working. An uptime guarantee offers compensation should the uptime of a server not meet a predefined percentage of time to be available, in a specific timeframe (usually on a per month basis). Uptime guarantees of 99.9% per month are the most common within the hosting industry.

24×7×365 Phone and Email Support
Our highly trained technical staff is here to help answer your questions any time. Plus you can access online tutorials, video library and our online knowledge base for additional help.

Shopping Cart FAQs »

How do I get started?
First think about what are you selling and how many products you will have. This will help you select a ShopSite package. Then think about features you want to offer to customers. The Starter ShopSite package will have basic features. More features and functionality are included in the Manager, and still more are included with the Pro package. You can set up the store yourself using ShopSite's set up wizard, or have someone design your shopping cart for you.

There are four basic steps to selling your product online with a ShopSite shopping cart. 1) Open a Local Checking Account with a banking institution so you can receive deposits. 2) Open a merchant account so that you will be able to accept credit cards. 3) Open a Payment Gateway account so you can connect between the Internet (your website) and secure banking and credit card networks to process your payment. 4) Configure your ShopSite store to work with your merchant account and payment gateway.

What is a merchant account?
A merchant account is a bank account that is designed to process debit and credit card payments, then deposit those funds into your local checking account (for a fee). A merchant account can be established for an online business, a brick and mortar business or both. If you already have a merchant account, contact your bank to make sure you can accept online payments via your website with your account type.

Do I need a merchant account?
Yes. You will need to have a merchant account to accept payments via your website. You will also need a payment gateway to transfer information securely from your website to your banking institution. Verio does not offer merchant accounts or payment gateways.

What is a payment gateway?
A payment gateway is a service that provides a connection between the Internet (your website) and secure banking and credit card networks where your merchant account resides.

What if I already have a PayPal or other merchant account?
You can link directly over to your PayPal account to process a sale directly from the ShopSite shopping cart.

How can I become PCI Compliant?
PCI Compliance can be a troublesome task for the average company. Verio offers scan-ready hosting platforms and compliant payment gateway solutions from AuthorizeNet or Braintree that may help your business with the steps needed to meet compliancy regulations.

Do I need to pay for an SSL account?
No. We provide a shared SSL for all of our hosting plans that you can use at no extra charge. If you prefer to have a private SSL certificate, you can purchase one from a third party vendor for an additional fee. We recommend you purchase an SSL certificate from Global Sign or GeoTrust. Note: You will need a dedicated IP address for a private SSL certificate. We include a dedicated IP address with each Verio hosting account at no additional charge.

Can I have multiple shopping carts?
If you select a Linux VPS or Linux MPS plan you can add multiple websites and IP addresses, and therefore have multiple shopping carts.

Can my shopping cart pages be found by the search engines?
Yes. ShopSite pages are static which is better for Search Engine Optimization. When content is dynamically generated it can't be indexed by the search engines. Static content is always there and easily findable.

Will my shopping cart look like the rest of my site?
Yes. You can either use the shopping cart itself to promote your products and information, or create a website for your information and simply link to the shopping cart for “buy now” functionality when your visitor is ready to purchase. Either way you can add graphics to your shopping cart so that it matches your branding (your website's look and feel).


Secure Your Site with an SSL Certificate

A dedicated SSL certificate will allow you and your customers to conduct Internet transactions referencing a secure URL at your own domain name: https://www.YOUR-DOMAIN.com. Adding an SSL certificate to your website lets your customers know their personal information is safe and transactions are secure in two ways. First, an https prefix will display in their address bar to identify your site as protected. And secondly, a certificate will be issued to encrypt data transfers like credit card numbers, and to identify your website as matching information on file with the Certificate Authority.

Add An SSL Certificate Now

Verio offers two options for adding an SSL certificate to your hosting plan. Each offering is provided by a third party. You'll purchase the SSL Certificate from the respective providers and then install it on your hosting account.

GlobalSign

SSL Secure Server Support from GlobalSign
GlobalSign has been issuing SSL Certificates to secure web sites and transactions since 1996. GlobalSign is a leading Certification Authority and SSL Certificate Provider and expert in understanding and fulfilling the online security requirements of enterprises, organizations and governments of all sizes. GlobalSign SSL Certificates are highly trusted, WebTrust accredited digital certificates capable of 256 bit strong encryption and are supported by all popular browsers, applications and mobile devices. GlobalSign digital certificates are covered by a $250,000 Liability Warranty.

What is Basic Web Hosting?
Basic web hosting is a service where multiple users/ websites reside on one server and share the same operating system. Each site or user has its own section on the server, and shares resources with other sites/users. This is the most cost-effective solution for hosting, as many users share the cost of maintaining the server. This is the most affordable hosting solution for small business owners who don't want the hassle of maintaining their own private server.

How do I choose a hosting plan?
It's important to choose the right hosting plan that will accommodate the growth of your online business. Consider how many visitors you will have, how many pages your website will be and how much you are predicting your online business to grow in the next year to two years. Consider choosing a hosting plan level that offers more resources than you need today. Then you will less likely need to migrate or change plans as your business evolves.

What is data transfer or monthly transfer?
Data transfer is the amount of data you are allowed to transfer to or from a website. Data, in this case, must be transferred from the web server to the user's web browser and is usually provided in increments of gigabytes (GB) – that's billions of bytes – and allotted monthly, meaning you can transfer a certain amount of data every month. Data refers to text, images, audio and video files that require various amounts of data to transfer.

How much transfer do I need?
You can figure out how much data transfer you will require by estimating your average page size (including graphics!) and multiplying it by the number of page views you expect to have in a month. For example with an average page size of 50 KB, and around 2000 page views per day, you will transfer an average of 3 gigabytes (GB) per month. Verio plans include 6, 8 and 12 terabytes – 1,000 GB = 1 Terabyte.

What is Unlimited Disk Space?
At Verio we do not apply specific limits to the amount of disk space you can use for website content. The term “Unlimited” is for content directly related to the site's content. Disk space is not to be use for file storage, only website content. You can also include up to 5GB of Multimedia content.

How do I add ecommerce?
You can add a ShopSite shopping cart to just about any Verio hosting plan or server. ShopSite can be added to both Unix and Windows operating system-based plans. This can be done by selecting the “Add ShopSite” option as part of the check out process. If you want to save a step in the ordering process, we also offer Ecommerce bundles that are based on Unix (only) and include both a basic web hosting account and a choice of three different levels of ShopSite shopping cart. You can also select a Windows Virtual Server or Dedicated Windows Hosting plan that both include ShopSite Starter, or you can upgrade to ShopSite Manager or Pro.

What level of shopping cart software do I need?
Choose a Starter ShopSite shopping cart if you will have less than 5 product pages. If you want to offer digital downloads, choose Manager. If you want to offer gift certificates, digital coupons, digital downloads or customer rewards then choose the Pro level. View a full comparison of features

How many databases can I have?
With our Unix basic web hosting plans you can have 1 MySQL database, with as many tables as you like within the given disk space for the plan. With our Windows basic web hosting plans there are a few options:

PLAN TYPE MS SQL DEFAULT SPACE # DATABASES SQL EXPRESS MYSQL DEFAULT SPACE # DATABASES
Windows (Basic) NO 2 DB 25 MB ea YES 50 MB 1
Windows (Enhanced) YES 50 MB 1 5 DB 25 MB ea YES 100 MB 1
Windows (Premium) YES 200 MB 4 10 DB 25 MB ea YES 200 MB 1

Can I keep my Domain Name when I change hosting providers?
Yes. Even if you purchased your domain name from your existing hosting provider, your domain name and web hosting package are two separate entities. You can point your domain name to any hosting provider to display your web pages. Confirm that you are the administrative contact for the domain through WHOIS service. Enter your domain name and be sure that your name and email appears for the Administrative contact. If it doesn't, you will need to contact that person to re-point your domain name to your new web hosting package.

How do I tell if I need Windows or Linux?
If your pages end in .php, .html or .htm, you want to use a CMS or MySQL database or run open-source applications you can use Windows but we recommend Unix. If your pages end in .ASP or .ASPX, your site supports .NET technology or you need a MSSQL database then you need Windows. Note: Just because your desktop or laptop is Windows-based does not mean you need a Windows hosting plan. If you are not sure ask your web designer / developer.

I don't have any experience creating a website. Can you help me?
You don't need experience to create a great website if you use EasySite, our free design tool. You can choose from 100's of templates, add your logo, choose your color scheme and add your content using an interface that functions much like Microsoft® Word. If you prefer to have someone else do the work, our Professional Services team can provide you with a professional website.

I have Windows web hosting. Can I use this application installer?
Not at this time. Our application installer is only available for Unix-based hosting plans.

Can I use this to install other applications?
Our application installer will only install and manage select applications. We will periodically add new applications to the list. If you have a specific application that you would like to see, please let us know. View Complete List »

Where do I find the application installer?
An icon for our application installer will display in your hosting control panel. Simply click the icon to launch it. Select the applications you wish to install, and follow the simple steps to move through the installation.

Can I upgrade after I've installed an application?
Yes. Your hosting control panel will inform you automatically if any of your installed applications has an upgrade or patch available. You decide when to implement them. Upgrade one at a time or multiple ones all at once.
