How Does Shared Hosting Function?

If you are looking for an affordably priced website hosting service, the service for you is called shared hosting.

What Is Shared Hosting?

Over the years, the demand for web hosting services has expanded vastly, but clients also prefer modest prices. The solution web hosting companies have conceived is called shared hosting. These hosting firms accommodate a lot of customers on one and the same hosting server, ensuring that they do not intervene with each other by placing restrictions on the server resources each shared hosting account is permitted to avail of. This allows for both stable performance and lower maintenance costs in contrast to a dedicated server, which is utilized by only a single person, and permits web hosting vendors to offer reasonable prices to their customers.

What can you do with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts traditionally include various website, mail and database management tools - a hosting CP, a File Manager interface, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and normally webmail - to check your email mailboxes. At GreatHosts.biz, we offer all these features at affordable prices. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also offer a cheap domain registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also manage everything from one single place with us - our intuitive hosting CP includes all the functionalities you need to administer your web site files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domain names, set up e-mail accounts and e-mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your email client software. How many domain names you can accommodate in your hosting account is determined by the hosting plan you have, but monthly traffic and hosting storage space are unmetered - you are solely limited when it comes to the central processing unit allocation and the number of hosted domains.

Backup

Apart from all the usual features, it is very essential when the hosting plans provider makes certain that your content is guarded. This is why the availability of daily backups is crucial and you should check in advance if the host of your preference is offering such. We perform daily backups and keeps backups for the past 7 days. The backup encompasses your files and databases and to have it repaired, you have to contact our technical support department. They get back to you in less than an hour, so if you deleted those web files haphazardly - do not be frightened, hope is the last to die!
