How does web hosting service work?

Your website is basically a collection of files and (in most cases) database that are served up to your visitors as they browse around it. Hostinger will allocate space for you to store your website and database.

When you sign up Hostinger, you’ll receive login details to access your hosting account’s admin panel.

At Hostinger, we offer custom built hosting control panel. Using our control panel you can carry out basic hosting management, monitor resource usage, create email addresses and install content management systems (CMSs) like WordPress. Note that this is different to the admin panel for your website, which will be created when you install a CMS. This is the admin panel for your server as a whole.
