Definition of Shared Website Hosting

If you are looking for a cheap web hosting solution, the solution for you is called hosting.

What Is Hosting?

Over the years, the demand for hosting services has expanded vastly, but clients also want moderate prices. The solution hosting service providers have invented is called hosting. These hosting service providers accommodate plenty of clients on the very same web server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by imposing restrictions on the resources each shared account is allowed to utilize. This allows for both stable performance and lower running costs in comparison with a dedicated package, which is utilized by only one single customer, and enables hosting vendors to offer moderate prices to their customers.

What can you achieve with a hosting account?

The hosting accounts usually offer different web site, email and database management features - a Control Panel, a File Manager interface, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and usually webmail - to access your mail accounts. At Wight Hosting, we offer all these features at affordable rates. 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 administer everything from one and the same place with us - our user-friendly hosting Control Panel offers all the features you need to handle your files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domains, create e-mailbox accounts and mailbox aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your email software client. How many domains you can accommodate in your shared hosting account depends on the website hosting plan you have, but monthly traffic and web server space are unmetered - you are only limited when it comes to the central processing unit allowance and the number of hosted domain names.

Backup

Beside all the traditional tools, it is extremely important when the website hosting packages provider guarantees that your data is intact. This is why the presence of automated backups is decisive and you should determine in advance if the hosting firm of your choosing is offering such. We carry out day-to-day backups and maintains backups for the past week. The backup contains your files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to touch base with our tech support staff. They reply in less than an hour, so if you deleted those files unintentionally - do not become hysterical, there's hope yet!
