Over the years, the need for website hosting solutions has grown extensively, but users also want budget prices. The solution web hosting companies have introduced is called shared hosting. These hosting companies accommodate numerous customers on one server, making sure that they do not intervene with each other by placing restrictions on the resources each shared web hosting account is permitted to utilize. This allows for both decent performance and lower maintenance costs as compared to a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one individual, and permits web hosting corporations to offer moderate prices to their clients.

What can you do with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts traditionally offer various web site, electronic mail and database administration features - a hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and normally webmail - to access your electronic mail accounts. At CIS Hosting, we offer all these features at reasonable rates. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also offer a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also manage everything from a single location with us - our easy-to-use web hosting CP has all the functionalities you need to handle your website files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, set up mailbox accounts and mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your email software client. How many domains you can host in your web hosting account is determined by the web hosting plan you have, but monthly traffic and disk storage space are unmetered - you are only restricted when it comes to the central processing unit allowance and the amount of hosted domains.


Apart from all the customary features, it is very important when the web hosting accounts provider ensures that your web hosting content is shielded. For this reason, the availability of everyday backups is a must and you should make sure in advance if the hosting packages provider of your choice is offering such. We perform day-to-day backups and keeps backups for the past seven days. The backup consists of your website files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to get in touch with our tech support team. They reply in less than one hour, so if you erased those website files haphazardly - do not become hysterical, there's hope yet!
