Over the years, the need for hosting services has increased greatly, but users also like modest prices. The service web hosting companies have invented is called web hosting. These providers accommodate a lot of clients on one and the very same web server, making sure that they do not intervene with each other by placing limits on the server resources each shared hosting account is allowed to resort to. This allows for both satisfactory performance and lower maintenance costs as compared with a dedicated hosting, which is used by only one client, and enables web hosts to offer attractive prices to their customers.

What can you do with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts usually include multiple web site, mail and database management features - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and often webmail - to check your mailbox accounts. At LIGHT Cloud Hosting, we provide all these tools at cheap rates. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also offer a cheap domain registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also manage everything from one single location with us - our easy-to-use web hosting Control Panel offers all the tools you need to administer your web site files, Domain Name System resource records, register and renew more domains, set up e-mail box accounts and mailbox aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your mail software client. How many domains you can host in your hosting account is determined by the website hosting package you have, but web traffic and disk storage space are unmetered - you are solely limited when it comes to the CPU usage quota and the amount of hosted domains.


Aside from all the standard features, it is very essential when the web hosting provider makes certain that your web hosting content is safe. So, the presence of automatic backups is mandatory and you should check in advance if the company of your preference is offering such. We perform day-to-day backups and retains backups for the past week. The backup contains your web site files and databases and to have it restored, you need to speak with our tech support department. They respond in less than one hour, so if you deleted those website files by chance - do not go to pieces, there's hope yet!
