Over the years, the demand for website hosting solutions has expanded extensively, but customers also want budget prices. The solution web hosting vendors have set up is called shared hosting. These hosting firms accommodate lots of clients on the same web hosting server, ensuring that they do not interfere with each other by setting restrictions on the server resources each shared web hosting account is permitted to make use of. This allows for both stable performance and lower operational costs in comparison to a dedicated hosting, which is utilized by only a single person, and enables web hosts to offer attractive prices to their clients.

What can you do with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts typically come with multiple website, electronic mail and database management tools - a hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and often webmail - to check your mailboxes. At Freelance Web Hosting, we offer all these features at attractive prices. We have both monthly and annual invoicing options and also provide a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from a single place with us - our intuitive hosting CP includes all the features you need to administer your web site files, Domain Name System resource records, register and renew more domains, set up electronic mail accounts and email aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your mail client. How many domains you can accommodate in your account is determined by the web hosting package you have, but monthly traffic and web hosting storage space are unmetered - you are only limited in terms of the central processing unit usage quota and the amount of hosted domains.


Apart from all the standard tools, it is extremely important when the website hosting company makes sure that your web hosting data is intact. For this reason, the availability of regular backups is critical and you should find out in advance if the web host of your choice is offering such. We perform everyday backups and keeps backups for the last week. The backup contains your web files and databases and to have it retrieved, you need to contact our tech support team. They respond in less than an hour, so if you erased those files accidentally - do not be terrified, there's hope yet!
