Over the years, the need for website hosting solutions has escalated enormously, but clients also prefer reasonable prices. The service web hosting companies have devised is called shared hosting. These hosting corporations host a lot of clients on the same hosting server, making certain that they do not intervene with each other by setting limitations on the server resources each web hosting account is permitted to use. This allows for both stable performance and lower operating costs in contrast to a dedicated server, which is used by only one client, and permits hosting corporations to offer budget prices to their clients.

What can you accomplish with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts typically come with diverse website, e-mail and database administration tools - a hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and typically webmail - to check your email mailboxes. At GoHosting, we provide all these features at budget rates. We offer both monthly and annual invoicing options and also provide 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 easy-to-use hosting Control Panel has all the functions you need to administer your website files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, create mail accounts and mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your mail client software. How many domain names you can host in your shared web hosting account depends on the hosting plan you have, but monthly bandwidth and web server hard disk storage space are unlimited - you are solely restricted in terms of the central processing unit usage and the number of hosted domains.


Apart from all the customary features, it is very essential when the hosting plans provider makes certain that your web hosting content is intact. Therefore, the availability of automatic backups is critical and you should make certain in advance if the web hosting corporation of your choice is offering such. We carry out everyday backups and retains backups for the last week. The backup consists of your web files and databases and to have it repaired, you have to speak with our tech support team. They respond in less than one hour, so if you erased those website files by mistake - do not be scared, hope is the last to die!
