What Does Shared Web Hosting Mean?

If you are seeking a cut-price website hosting solution, the solution for you is called hosting.

What Is Hosting?

Over the years, the demand for website hosting solutions has grown greatly, but clients also prefer cheap prices. The solution web hosting service providers have come up with is called hosting. These hosting service providers host plenty of clients on one and the very same hosting server, ensuring that they do not intervene with each other by imposing limits on the server resources each shared account is allowed to resort to. This allows for both reliable performance and lower operating costs as compared with a dedicated server, which is used by just one user, and permits web hosting suppliers to offer reasonable prices to their clients.

What can you achieve with a hosting account?

The hosting accounts usually offer various web site, email and database administration tools - a hosting CP, a File Manager interface, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and usually webmail - to access your email boxes. At , we offer all these tools at budget rates. We offer both monthly and annual billing options and also offer a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one place with us - our intuitive hosting CP includes all the features you need to handle your web files, DNS records, register and renew more domains, create e-mail box accounts and mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your e-mail client software. How many domains you can host in your shared account is determined by the website hosting package you have, but web traffic and web server disk drive space are unlimited - you are solely limited when it comes to the central processing unit usage and the number of hosted domain names.


Apart from all the customary features, it is very important when the web hosting distributor ensures that your data is protected. Hence, the presence of automated backups is a must and you should double-check in advance if the web hosting solutions provider of your preference is offering such. We perform day-to-day backups and retains backups for the last week. The backup consists of your website files and databases and to have it retrieved, you need to contact our tech support staff. They answer in less than an hour, so if you deleted those web files fortuitously - do not panic, hope still exists!
