We do perform regular system backups for our shared hosting services. However it is not available for customers to use as it will only be activated in the event of a disastrous failure where we will restore the entire server. Although our system backups are not for customers' usage, if you wish to utilize or restore from our system backups, there will be a one-time admin fee for the restore. It is advisable to perform your own backups.

Our system does not do backups for VPS/Cloud/Dedicated Server and customers will have to do their own system and database backup. You can purchase our Backup Storage and perform your own backups. In addition you may purchase our Backup Software if you require it.

If you purchase VPS/Cloud/Dedicated Server with cPanel/Plesk control panel, you can use cPanel/Plesk backup tools to schedule your backup automatically.

Simply sign up for a hosting plan with APC. Once payment is made for invoice, our system will send you a provisional email which contains the information for the nameserver.

Next, you can seek assistance from your domain registrar to change the name server to APC’s name server which is mentioned in the provisional email.

Once the nameserver has been changed, do allow 24 to 48 hours for the propagation to complete. Once the propagation is complete, you can start using our web hosting services.

Yes, it is possible. You can use the add-on domain function in your control panel. However, we do not recommend this as the performance of your website will be affected. This is due to the add-on domain sharing the same resources (eg. disk space, bandwidth, etc.) as your main domain. 

If you wish to host multiple domains, we advise you to take up our Reseller hosting plan.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to estimate the disk space you require base on looking at your website as we do not know the size of the image or videos you may have on your website. You will have to check with your developer the amount of disk space you require.

Alternatively, you can take up our basic hosting plan and you may upgrade to the next tier plan in future if you require more disk space.
