Over the years, the demand for web hosting solutions has grown vastly, but users also like modest prices. The service web hosting service providers have invented is called shared hosting. These web hosts host a lot of clients on one and the same web server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by setting limitations on the resources each shared account is allowed to resort to. This allows for both reliable performance and lower running costs as compared to a dedicated server, which is utilized by just one individual, and permits web hosting providers to offer budget prices to their customers.

What can you do with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts traditionally include various website, mail and database management features - a web hosting CP, a File Manager tool, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and normally webmail - to check your mailboxes. At Hamilton Hosting, we provide all these tools at attractive rates. We offer 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 one location with us - our intuitive hosting Control Panel has all the functionalities you need to handle your web site files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domains, set up e-mail box accounts and electronic mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your electronic mail client software. How many domains you can host in your shared account is determined by the web hosting plan you have, but bandwidth and content storage space are unlimited - you are solely restricted in terms of the central processing unit utilization and the amount of hosted domains.


Apart from all the common features, it is very important when the website hosting vendor makes certain that your hosting content is protected. That is why the presence of automatic backups is critical and you should settle in advance if the hosting services provider of your preference is offering such. We offer daily backups and keeps backups for the last week. The backup encompasses your web site files and databases and to have it recovered, you need to touch base with our tech support team. They respond in less than an hour, so if you deleted those web files haphazardly - do not panic, keep the faith!
