Over the years, the need for hosting solutions has escalated enormously, but people also prefer inexpensive prices. The solution hosting companies have developed is called web hosting. These service providers host plenty of customers on the very same web hosting server, making certain that they do not interfere with each other by placing limits on the server resources each shared account is permitted to avail of. This allows for both dependable performance and lower running costs in comparison to a dedicated hosting, which is used by only a single person, and permits web hosting vendors to offer reasonable prices to their clients.

What can you achieve with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts traditionally offer different web site, email and database administration features - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, a File Transfer Protocol software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and usually webmail - to check your mail accounts. At US Virtual Host, we provide all these tools at attractive rates. We have 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 single place with us - our user-friendly hosting Control Panel offers all the features you need to manage your website files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domain names, set up email accounts and e-mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your e-mail client. How many domain names you can accommodate in your shared web hosting account depends on the hosting plan you have, but monthly traffic and hosting server disk drive space are unlimited - you are solely restricted when it comes to the CPU utilization and the quantity of hosted domain names.


Aside from all the conventional features, it is very important when the web hosting provider makes certain that your web hosting content is protected. This is why the availability of periodic backups is vital and you should ascertain in advance if the hosting vendor of your choice is offering such. We offer daily backups and retains backups for the last one week. The backup includes your web files and databases and to have it repaired, you need to get in touch with our tech support staff. They reply in less than an hour, so if you erased those web site files by accident - do not be terrified, there's still hope!
