Q ) Which hosting package do I choose?
Our basic package fits the needs of most business websites. If you are unsure, just start small, you can upgrade at a later date if you exceed your hosting package.
Q ) What if I exceed my space or bandwidth limits? Will my website stop functioning?
You won't experience any interruption in service for overage, instead your account will be billed for any overage. Fire Pixel charges $0.05/mb for disk space overage and $0.02/mb for bandwidth overage. Fire Pixel will recommend an upgraded hosting plan if you consistently exceed your hosting plan.
Q ) What happens if I pay for a year of hosting and I need to upgrade my hosting plan mid-year?
We only ask you to pay the difference, don't worry, we'll do the math.

Q ) How do I order my website address?
Click the 'place order' button under the package that best fits your business and at the next screen you can check the availability of your preferred domian name.
Q ) I've heard of unlimited hosting elsewhere, why are unlimited hosting plans bad?
"Unlimited hosting" means the hosting provider is not imposing any arbitrary limits on traffic or disk space. However, the server capacity and health is indeed limited so your hosting account is at the mercy of all other accounts hosted on that server. Most website and email hosting companies with unlimited plans will cram as many accounts on a server as possible to maximize their profit margins, this is why these websites generally tend to struggle with very low performance.
