Fair Use Policy for Unlimited Storage on Our Shared Hosting Packages

At UKC, we take pride in offering unlimited resources as part of a selection of our hosting plans. However, it’s important to understand that “unlimited” resources must be governed by a fair use policy to ensure optimal service quality for all our clients. This policy outlines the responsible usage of our hosting resources, ensuring that every client gets the best possible hosting experience.

1. Purpose of Web Storage:

  • The unlimited hosting space provided is intended solely for the active files necessary for the running of your website. This includes your website’s code, databases, and media files essential for its operation.

2. Prohibited Uses of Web Storage:

  • The hosting space should not be used as a digital archive or for storing backups, large media files not used by your website, or any other files unrelated to the regular functioning of your website. Our goal is to maintain high-performance levels for all users, and using the space for unintended purposes could impair this goal.

3. One Account, One Entity:

  • To maintain the integrity of our hosting environment, each hosting account must only host websites belonging to a single entity. This policy is in place to prevent web agencies or developers from hosting multiple clients’ websites under one account. Each client or entity should have their own dedicated hosting account.

4. Monitoring and Enforcement:

  • We regularly monitor the usage of our hosting services to ensure compliance with this fair use policy. If we find that an account is not adhering to these guidelines, we will reach out to discuss appropriate solutions, which may include upgrading to a more suitable hosting plan or removing non-compliant files.

5. Adaptive Storage Allocation:

  • To enhance the security and efficiency of our hosting services, UKC implements an adaptive storage allocation strategy for our unlimited storage plans. Storage space is allocated in manageable chunks or blocks, and additional storage is provided as and when needed. This proactive approach serves a dual purpose: firstly, it safeguards against potential Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, where excessive demands on storage could compromise server stability. Secondly, it prevents a malfunctioning or compromised website from consuming excessive resources, thereby ensuring that all clients on the server are protected from the cascading effects of such incidents. This method of allocation is part of our commitment to maintaining a secure, reliable, and high-performing hosting environment for all our clients.

6. Our Commitment to Quality Hosting:

  • This policy is designed to safeguard the quality and reliability of our hosting services for all clients. By ensuring that our resources are used appropriately, we can continue offering high-quality, unlimited hosting that genuinely meets your website’s needs.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adhering to this fair use policy. It is our commitment to provide you with exceptional hosting services, and adhering to these guidelines helps us achieve this goal for all our clients.

Site Migration and Transfer: How to Move a Website to another Web Server

Moving a website from one server to another, such as from a cPanel-based server to a Plesk-based server, involves several critical steps. This process requires careful planning to ensure that your website’s data is transferred accurately and that your website remains functional and secure.

Here’s an outline of the steps involved

1. Preparation

  • Backup Data: Before starting the migration process, back up all your website data. This includes website files, databases, and email accounts.
  • Check Compatibility: Ensure that your website’s applications and scripts are compatible with the new server environment.
  • Gather Information: Collect necessary information such as database credentials, FTP details, and any custom configuration settings.

2. Transfer Files

  • Download Files: Use FTP or a file manager to download your website files from your old cPanel server.
  • Upload Files to New Server: Using FTP or Plesk’s file manager, upload these files to the appropriate directory on your new Plesk server.

3. Transfer Database

  • Export Database: Export the database from your cPanel server using phpMyAdmin or a similar tool.
  • Create a New Database on Plesk: Set up a new database on your Plesk server and import the exported database data.

4. Reconfigure Website Settings

  • Update Configuration Files: Adjust configuration files (e.g., wp-config.php for WordPress) with the new database details and any other environment-specific settings.
  • Install and Configure Necessary Applications: Ensure that all necessary applications (such as PHP, web server software) are installed and configured on the Plesk server.

5. Email Accounts Migration (if applicable)

  • Export Emails: Use available tools or manual methods to export email accounts from cPanel.
  • Import Emails to Plesk: Set up email accounts on the Plesk server and import the emails.

6. Test the Website on the New Server

  • Conduct Thorough Testing: Before switching your DNS, test the website on the new server for functionality, performance, and broken links.
  • Check for SSL Certificates: Ensure that SSL certificates are properly installed and working on the new server.

7. Update DNS Settings

  • Point Domain to New Server: Update your domain’s DNS settings to point to the new server’s IP address.
  • Wait for Propagation: DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to propagate worldwide.

8. Post-Migration Checks

  • Monitor Website: After DNS propagation, monitor the website for any issues.
  • Set Up Redirects if Necessary: If URLs have changed, set up 301 redirects to maintain SEO value.
  • Cancel Old Hosting Service: Once you confirm everything is working fine on the new server, you can safely cancel your old hosting service.


  • Document and Review: Document the migration process and review any challenges faced for future reference.

Potential Challenges

  • Downtime: Minimise downtime by performing the migration during off-peak hours.
  • Data Loss: A risk of data loss can be mitigated by having comprehensive backups.
  • Compatibility Issues: Software versions (PHP, MySQL) might differ between servers, so test thoroughly.

Additional Tips

  • Keep your old hosting account active until you are completely sure that the migration was successful.
  • Notify your users or customers about the migration, especially if any downtime is expected.


  • Regularly back up your new setup and monitor its performance.
  • Update your site’s security settings as necessary on the new server.

Moving a website between servers is a complex process that requires attention to detail. It’s recommended to seek assistance from a professional if you are not comfortable with the technical aspects of the process.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. How long does the website migration process take?

  • The duration of migration varies depending on the size and complexity of your website. Typically, it can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. We aim to minimise downtime and will provide you with a more accurate timeline once we assess your specific needs.

2. Will my website be offline during migration?

  • We strive to minimise downtime as much as possible. In most cases, your website will remain online during the migration process. Any necessary downtime will be brief and planned during off-peak hours to reduce impact.

3. Is my data safe during the migration process?

  • Absolutely. Data security is our top priority. We do not make any changes to the source data. The migration process makes a copy of your original data onto the target server.

4. Will my website’s performance be affected after migration?

  • Your website’s performance should not be negatively affected. In fact, many clients experience improved performance and loading speeds post-migration due to our optimised server configurations.

5. What do I need to provide for the migration process?

  • We will need access to your current hosting account and any relevant credentials. This includes FTP/SFTP details, database information, and your domain registrar if a DNS update is required. We handle all the technical aspects and keep you updated throughout the process.

Making Sense of Web Hosting for Your CMS Website

WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal Made Easy

Hello there! Are you considering stepping into the digital world with a website using WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal? If so, you’ve probably heard about ‘web hosting‘ and how crucial it is for your online journey. Don’t worry, though; you don’t need to be a tech expert to understand it. Let’s chat about web hosting for CMS (Content Management Systems) like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal in a way that’s easy to grasp and relevant to your needs.

What is Web Hosting?

Imagine web hosting as the foundation of your digital home. Just like a house needs land to sit on, your website needs a space on the internet. This space is provided by web hosting services. They store all the data of your website, making it accessible to anyone who types in your web address. Pretty neat, right?

Why Do CMS Websites Need Hosting?

CMS platforms like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal are fantastic tools for building websites. They offer templates and plugins to make web design a breeze, even for beginners. But, to bring these websites to life and make them accessible to the world, you need web hosting.

Types of Web Hosting for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal

  1. Shared Hosting: This is like living in an apartment building. You have your own space, but you share resources like power and water with your neighbors. Shared hosting is cost-effective and suitable for small to medium websites, making it a popular choice for beginners.
  2. VPS (Virtual Private Server) Hosting: Imagine a townhouse complex. You have more space and fewer neighbors compared to an apartment. A VPS provides more resources and better performance than shared hosting, perfect for growing websites that need more oomph.
  3. Dedicated Hosting: This is like having a standalone house. All the resources are exclusively yours. It’s powerful and offers maximum control, ideal for large, high-traffic websites.

Choosing the Right Hosting for Your CMS

  • Budget-Conscious? Go for Shared Hosting. If you’re just starting out or have a small website, shared hosting is a great choice. It’s affordable and provides all the basics you need.
  • Need More Power? Choose VPS Hosting. If your website is growing and you need more resources (like bandwidth and storage), a VPS is a step up. It handles more traffic and offers better performance.
  • Running a Big Website? Dedicated Hosting is Your Friend. If you have a high-traffic site or need advanced customization and security, dedicated hosting gives you the power and flexibility you need.

UKC: Your Partner in Web Hosting for CMS

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Embarking on the journey of creating a CMS website, whether it’s with WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal, can often lead to several questions, especially regarding web hosting. Let’s dive into some of these queries to help you better understand the world of web hosting for your CMS platform.

What exactly is CMS web hosting, and why do I need it for my WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal site? CMS web hosting provides the necessary server space and technology for your Content Management System (CMS) website, whether it’s WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal. It’s essential because, without it, your website cannot be accessed online. It stores all your website content and ensures that it’s available to visitors around the clock.

How does shared hosting work for a CMS website? Shared hosting for a CMS website is like renting an apartment in a large building. You have your own space (website) but share resources like bandwidth and server storage with other websites. It’s a cost-effective option for smaller websites or those just starting out with CMS platforms like WordPress or Joomla.

I’ve heard about VPS hosting. Is it better than shared hosting for a Drupal site? VPS, or Virtual Private Server hosting, is a step up from shared hosting. It’s like moving from an apartment to a townhouse. You still share the property with others, but you have more space and resources. It’s a great option if your Drupal site has outgrown shared hosting and needs more resources or better performance.

What are the advantages of dedicated hosting for a CMS website? Dedicated hosting is like owning a standalone house, where all the resources of the server are dedicated to your CMS website. This means you get maximum performance, security, and customization. It’s ideal for large-scale websites or businesses with high traffic and specific hosting requirements.

Can I upgrade my hosting plan as my CMS website grows? Absolutely! One of the great advantages of web hosting services is their scalability. You can start with a basic shared hosting plan for your CMS website and upgrade to VPS or dedicated hosting as your website grows in traffic and complexity. This ensures your hosting plan always matches your website’s needs.

Addressing these questions can help demystify the options available in web hosting for CMS platforms, making it easier for you to choose the right path for your website’s needs, whether you’re starting with a small blog or planning for a high-traffic business site.
