Over the years, the need for website hosting services has increased extensively, but clients also prefer affordable prices. The solution web hosting vendors have set up is called shared hosting. These hosting corporations host lots of clients on one web hosting server, making certain that they do not interfere with each other by placing limits on the server resources each web hosting account is permitted to avail of. This allows for both agreeable performance and lower operational costs in comparison with a dedicated server, which is used by only a single client, and enables web hosting corporations to offer moderate prices to their clients.

What can you do with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts typically come with diverse web site, e-mail and database management features - a hosting CP, a File Manager interface, a File Transfer Protocol software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and often webmail - to check your email boxes. At Big Data HOST IT, we provide all these tools at budget prices. We have both monthly and annual invoicing 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 location with us - our easy-to-use web hosting CP offers all the features you need to administer your web files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, create email accounts and mailbox aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your mail client software. How many domain names you can host in your shared web hosting account is determined by the hosting plan you have, but traffic and web space are unmetered - you are only limited when it comes to the CPU usage and the number of hosted domains.


Aside from all the common tools, it is very important when the website hosting company ensures that your web hosting content is secure. This is why the presence of day-to-day backups is a must and you should make certain in advance if the hosting vendor of your preference is offering such. We conduct daily backups and maintains backups for the past 7 days. The backup consists of your web site files and databases and to have it retrieved, you need to touch base with our tech support department. They reply in less than an hour, so if you deleted those web site files by mistake - do not be startled, hope still exists!
