Over the years, the need for website hosting solutions has increased hugely, but clients also want budget prices. The service web hosting vendors have conceived is called hosting. These web hosting companies host plenty of clients on one and the same web server, ensuring that they do not interfere with each other by placing limitations on the resources each shared web hosting account is permitted to utilize. This allows for both stable performance and lower maintenance costs in comparison to a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one single user, and enables hosting service providers to offer attractive prices to their customers.

What can you accomplish with a hosting account?

The hosting accounts typically come with various website, mail and database management features - a web hosting CP, a File Manager tool, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and usually webmail - to access your email accounts. At Cheap Hosted, we offer all these tools at low prices. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also provide a cheap domain registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from a single location with us - our easy-to-use hosting Control Panel has all the tools you need to manage your files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, create electronic mail accounts and email aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your e-mail client. How many domains you can host in your shared hosting account depends on the hosting plan you have, but traffic and web content storage space are unmetered - you are only restricted in terms of the central processing unit utilization and the quantity of hosted domains.


Aside from all the usual features, it is very essential when the web hosting plans provider ensures that your hosting data is intact. Therefore, the availability of scheduled backups is obligatory and you should check in advance if the hosting plans provider of your preference is offering such. We offer daily backups and retains backups for the last one week. The backup consists of your web files and databases and to have it repaired, you need to talk to our technical support staff. They reply in less than one hour, so if you erased those web site files unintentionally - do not chicken out, hope is the last to die!
