Over the years, the need for website hosting solutions has grown greatly, but customers also prefer modest prices. The solution web hosting companies have come up with is called shared hosting. These web hosting companies host a lot of clients on the very same server, making sure that they do not intervene with each other by setting limitations on the server resources each web hosting account is permitted to resort to. This allows for both decent performance and lower running costs in comparison with a dedicated server, which is used by only one single user, and permits hosting providers to offer cheap prices to their clients.

What can you accomplish with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts normally include various website, electronic mail and database administration tools - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager interface, a File Transfer Protocol software client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and normally webmail - to check your email box accounts. At XS Web Sites, we offer all these features at cheap rates. We offer both monthly and annual billing options and also provide a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also manage everything from one place with us - our easy-to-use hosting Control Panel includes all the features you need to handle your web site files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domain names, create electronic mail accounts and e-mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your electronic mail client. How many domain names you can accommodate in your shared hosting account depends on the website hosting plan you have, but monthly traffic and web hosting server hard disk space are unlimited - you are solely restricted in terms of the CPU allocation and the amount of hosted domains.


Apart from all the customary features, it is very important when the hosting packages provider guarantees that your hosting content is invulnerable. So, the presence of automatic backups is essential and you should find out in advance if the web hosting packages provider of your choice is offering such. We carry out everyday backups and preserves backups for the past 7 days. The backup includes your files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to touch base with our tech support staff. They reply in less than one hour, so if you deleted those web site files by mistake - do not become hysterical, hope still exists!
