Shared Web Hosting

If you are searching for a budget-priced web site hosting solution, the solution for you is called shared web hosting.

What Is Shared Hosting?

Over the years, the demand for web hosting solutions has grown vastly, but users also like cheap prices. The service web hosts have contrived is called shared web hosting. These web hosting firms accommodate numerous customers on one web server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by placing restrictions on the resources each shared hosting account is permitted to make use of. This allows for both satisfactory performance and lower running costs in comparison to a dedicated web server, which is used by just one user, and allows web hosting providers to offer modest prices to their customers.

What can you accomplish with a shared account?

The shared hosting accounts usually include various website, email and database administration features - a Control Panel, a File Manager tool, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and often webmail - to access your email mailboxes. An example of a hosting distributor that offers all these tools at inexpensive rates is LONEX.COM. They have both monthly and annual invoicing options and also offer a cost-free domain name registration with each of their shared web hosting plans. You can also manage everything from a single location with them - their intuitive hosting Control Panel has all the functions you need to manage your web site files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domain names, set up email box accounts and electronic mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your email client. How many domain names you can host in your web hosting account depends on the web site hosting package you have, but web traffic and web server hard disk storage space are unlimited - you are only limited when it comes to the central processing unit usage quota and the amount of hosted domains.


Aside from all the standard features, it is extremely important when the hosting accounts provider guarantees that your hosting data is shielded. That is the reason why the presence of routine backups is a must and you should verify in advance if the host of your choosing is offering such. LONEX.COM, for example, conducts everyday backups and preserves backups for the last week. The backup consists of your files and databases and to have it restored, you need to touch base with the technical support staff, but my experience has demonstrated that they answer in less than an hour, so if you erased those files fortuitously - do not go to pieces, hope dies last!
