Over the years, the need for website hosting services has increased immensely, but users also want affordable prices. The solution web hosting providers have developed is called web hosting. These web hosting service providers host many clients on one and the same server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by setting limitations on the server resources each web hosting account is permitted to make use of. This allows for both stable performance and lower maintenance costs as compared to a dedicated hosting, which is utilized by only one person, and allows hosting providers to offer affordable prices to their clients.

What can you accomplish with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts normally include different web site, e-mail and database administration tools - a web hosting CP, a File Manager interface, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and normally webmail - to access your mailboxes. At STEERWEB, we offer all these features at reasonable prices. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also offer a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one place with us - our user-friendly web hosting Control Panel has all the features you need to handle your web site files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domains, set up mailbox accounts and electronic mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your mail software client. How many domain names you can host in your shared web hosting account is dependent on the hosting package you have, but monthly traffic and hosting server disk drive storage space are unmetered - you are solely limited in terms of the central processing unit allocation and the number of hosted domain names.


Beside all the traditional features, it is very essential when the website hosting accounts provider makes certain that your web hosting content is guarded. For this reason, the presence of automatic backups is critical and you should double-check in advance if the web host of your choosing is offering such. We conduct day-to-day backups and maintains backups for the past 7 days. The backup encompasses your web site files and databases and to have it restored, you have to contact our tech support team. They get back to you in less than one hour, so if you deleted those web site files fortuitously - do not chicken out, hope still exists!
