If you are searching for a low-cost website hosting service, the service for you is called shared web hosting.

What Is Shared Web Hosting?

Over the years, the need for web hosting solutions has increased greatly, but users also want affordable prices. The service web hosting companies have come up with is called shared web hosting. These providers host numerous customers on one and the same hosting server, ensuring that they do not interfere with each other by placing limits on the server resources each hosting account is permitted to use. This allows for both stable performance and lower operating costs in comparison with a dedicated server web hosting, which is utilized by just one single client, and enables hosting providers to offer inexpensive prices to their clients.

What can you do with a shared web hosting account?

The shared web hosting accounts normally offer multiple website, mail and database management tools - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager interface, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and often webmail - to access your e-mailbox accounts. At viawebcloud, we provide all these tools at flexible 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 and the same location with us - our intuitive hosting CP includes all the features you need to administer your web site files, DNS records, register and renew more domains, create mailbox accounts and mailbox aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your e-mail client software. How many domains you can host in your hosting account is dependent on the website hosting package you have, but traffic and data storage space are unlimited - you are only restricted when it comes to the CPU usage quota and the amount of hosted domain names.


Beside all the common features, it is very important when the web hosting plans provider makes sure that your web hosting data is protected. For this reason, the presence of automated backups is critical and you should determine in advance if the web hosting services provider of your choosing is offering such. We offer day-to-day backups and preserves backups for the last 7 days. The backup consists of your web site files and databases and to have it recovered, you need to contact our technical support team. They get back to you in less than an hour, so if you deleted those web files haphazardly - do not be startled, hope dies hard!
