What is Shared Hosting?

Last updated on 31/07/2020 at 17:05

Over the years, the demand for website hosting solutions has expanded vastly, but users also like budget prices. The solution hosts have put together is called shared hosting. Web hosting firms host a lot of customers on one and the very same web server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other, by setting limits on the resources each web hosting account is permitted to use. This allows for both stable performance and lower operating costs in comparison with a dedicated server, which is utilized by only a single customer and permits hosting providers to offer low prices to their clients.

Shared Hosting

What can you achieve with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts typically offer different websites, electronic mail and database management features – a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and normally web mail – to check your email mailbox accounts. At AnPat Media Hosting, we offer all these features at affordable prices. We offer both monthly and annual invoicing options and also offer a low cost domain registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from a single location with us – our user-friendly web hosting CP includes all the features you need to administer your web site files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, create mailbox accounts and email aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your email client software. How many domain names you can host in your hosting account is dependent on the website hosting plan you have, but monthly traffic and hosting server storage space are unlimited – you are solely limited in terms of the CPU utilization and the number of hosted domain names.


Besides all the customary tools, it is essential the web hosting distributor makes certain that your web hosting data is guarded. Hence, the availability of everyday backups is critical and you should ascertain in advance if the hosting plans provider of your choosing is offering such a service. We carry out everyday backups and maintain backups for the last one week. The backup includes your web site files and databases. To have it restored, you need to speak with our technical support department. They reply in less than one hour via the ticket system in your control panel, so if you accidentally deleted those files – do not worry, hope still survives!
