Over the years, the demand for website hosting solutions has escalated hugely, but people also prefer budget prices. The solution web hosting service providers have conceived is called web hosting. These providers host numerous customers on one and the same hosting server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by setting limits on the resources each shared web hosting account is allowed to make use of. This allows for both good performance and lower operating costs as compared with a dedicated hosting, which is utilized by only a single individual, and permits hosting service providers to offer reasonable prices to their clients.

What can you accomplish with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts typically offer various web site, mail and database management features - a web hosting CP, a File Manager interface, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and typically webmail - to access your email mailboxes. At SOS Web Development, we offer all these tools at modest prices. We offer both monthly and annual billing options and also provide a cheap domain registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also administer everything from a single place with us - our intuitive hosting Control Panel offers all the functions you need to administer your web site files, DNS records, register and renew more domains, set up e-mail accounts and email aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your email client. How many domains you can accommodate in your shared web hosting account is dependent on the website hosting plan you have, but bandwidth and web server disk drive space are unlimited - you are solely restricted in terms of the central processing unit usage quota and the quantity of hosted domains.


Apart from all the usual features, it is very important when the hosting services provider guarantees that your web hosting content is intact. For this reason, the availability of regular backups is vital and you should discover in advance if the web hosting provider of your preference is offering such. We conduct daily backups and maintains backups for the past 7 days. The backup encompasses your web site files and databases and to have it restored, you need to get in touch with our technical support department. They get back to you in less than an hour, so if you erased those web files by chance - do not panic, hope still exists!
