Over the years, the need for web hosting services has escalated immensely, but users also prefer low prices. The solution web hosting providers have developed is called shared hosting. These hosting service providers accommodate numerous customers on one web server, ensuring that they do not interfere with each other by setting limitations on the server resources each shared account is allowed to make use of. This allows for both decent performance and lower maintenance costs in contrast to a dedicated server, which is used by only a single customer, and permits web hosting vendors to offer inexpensive prices to their clients.

What can you accomplish with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts typically include various website, email and database administration features - a hosting CP, a File Manager interface, an FTP client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and often webmail - to check your e-mailboxes. At SupernovaHost, we offer all these tools at reasonable prices. We have both monthly and annual invoicing options and also provide a cheap domain name registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one location with us - our easy-to-use hosting CP has all the functionalities you need to administer your web files, DNS records, register and renew more domains, create email accounts and mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your mail client software. How many domains you can accommodate in your web hosting account is dependent on the web hosting plan you have, but bandwidth and web hosting server hard drive space are unlimited - you are only restricted in terms of the central processing unit usage quota and the quantity of hosted domains.


Apart from all the usual tools, it is extremely essential when the website hosting distributor guarantees that your web hosting data is defended. Hence, the availability of everyday backups is compulsory and you should learn in advance if the hosting distributor of your choosing is offering such. We offer day-to-day backups and maintains backups for the last one week. The backup comprises your web site files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to speak with our tech support team. They answer in less than an hour, so if you deleted those files unintentionally - do not be alarmed, hope still lives!
