Over the years, the need for website hosting services has escalated enormously, but users also want reasonable prices. The solution hosting vendors have introduced is called hosting. These service providers accommodate many clients on one and the same web server, making sure that they do not intervene with each other by setting limits on the resources each hosting account is permitted to use. This allows for both good performance and lower running costs as compared to a dedicated server, which is used by just one single customer, and enables hosting companies to offer reasonable prices to their clients.

What can you accomplish with a hosting account?

The hosting accounts usually come with diverse web site, electronic mail and database management features - a hosting CP, a File Manager tool, an FTP client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and normally webmail - to access your e-mail boxes. At GotchaDomains, we offer all these features at reasonable prices. We offer both monthly and annual invoicing options and also offer a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one single place with us - our easy-to-use web hosting CP includes all the tools you need to handle your web files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domain names, create e-mail accounts and mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your electronic mail software client. How many domain names you can accommodate in your shared web hosting account is dependent on the web hosting package you have, but web traffic and server disk space are unmetered - you are only limited when it comes to the CPU allocation and the quantity of hosted domains.


Aside from all the common features, it is extremely essential when the website hosting company makes sure that your hosting data is safe. For this reason, the availability of day-to-day backups is essential and you should determine in advance if the web hosting provider of your choice is offering such. We carry out everyday backups and retains backups for the last week. The backup contains your web site files and databases and to have it recovered, you need to touch base with our tech support team. They get back to you in less than an hour, so if you erased those web files accidentally - do not lose your nerve, hope is the last to die!
