Over the years, the demand for website hosting services has increased greatly, but customers also want reasonable prices. The solution web hosting distributors have set up is called web hosting. These hosts accommodate a lot of customers on one web server, making certain that they do not intervene with each other by placing restrictions on the server resources each shared account is permitted to use. This allows for both decent performance and lower maintenance costs in comparison to a dedicated hosting, which is utilized by only one person, and permits hosting companies to offer modest prices to their customers.

What can you accomplish with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts typically include various web site, mail and database administration tools - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and often webmail - to check your e-mail box accounts. At Professional Internet Services, we offer all these tools at affordable prices. We offer both monthly and annual invoicing options and also offer a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one single location with us - our user-friendly web hosting Control Panel has all the functions you need to handle your files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, create electronic mail accounts and mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your email client. How many domain names you can host in your shared account is determined by the website hosting package you have, but bandwidth and web hosting server hard disk space are unmetered - you are solely restricted when it comes to the CPU allowance and the amount of hosted domains.


Aside from all the customary tools, it is extremely essential when the hosting services provider ensures that your web hosting content is intact. Hence, the availability of routine backups is critical and you should find out in advance if the hosting services provider of your preference is offering such. We offer everyday backups and maintains backups for the last week. The backup contains your website files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to speak with our tech support team. They answer in less than an hour, so if you deleted those website files fortuitously - do not be afraid, there's still hope!
