Over the years, the demand for hosting solutions has escalated immensely, but customers also want affordable prices. The solution hosting suppliers have devised is called hosting. These providers accommodate lots of clients on one and the very same web server, making certain that they do not interfere with each other by placing limits on the resources each shared hosting account is permitted to utilize. This allows for both reliable performance and lower operational costs as compared to a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one client, and permits web hosting vendors to offer attractive prices to their customers.

What can you achieve with a hosting account?

The hosting accounts traditionally include multiple web site, e-mail and database administration features - a web hosting CP, a File Manager tool, a File Transfer Protocol software client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and often webmail - to check your email accounts. At Ferret Hosting, we provide all these features at inexpensive rates. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also offer a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also manage everything from a single location with us - our intuitive hosting Control Panel includes all the functionalities you need to manage your files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domain names, create email box accounts and mailbox aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your mail client. How many domain names you can accommodate in your shared account is determined by the website hosting package you have, but web traffic and web server disk drive storage space are unlimited - you are only restricted in terms of the central processing unit usage and the amount of hosted domain names.


Apart from all the customary tools, it is very important when the website hosting provider makes certain that your content is invulnerable. That is the reason why the availability of automated backups is imperative and you should establish in advance if the hosting packages provider of your preference is offering such. We carry out daily backups and retains backups for the past one week. The backup contains your website files and databases and to have it repaired, you need to contact our tech support department. They reply in less than an hour, so if you erased those files by accident - do not be terrified, there's hope yet!
