Over the years, the demand for website hosting services has grown enormously, but customers also want budget prices. The solution hosting providers have invented is called hosting. These hosting firms host a lot of clients on one and the very same hosting server, making certain that they do not interfere with each other by placing restrictions on the resources each web hosting account is permitted to resort to. This allows for both stable performance and lower running costs as compared with a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one customer, and permits hosting suppliers to offer attractive prices to their clients.

What can you do with a hosting account?

The hosting accounts normally come with different website, mail and database management features - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, a File Transfer Protocol client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and normally webmail - to access your email box accounts. At SWH - Sierra Web Hosting, we provide all these features at attractive rates. We offer 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 one and the same location with us - our easy-to-use web hosting CP includes all the functionalities you need to manage your web files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domains, create e-mail box accounts and electronic mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your mail client software. How many domains you can accommodate in your account depends on the hosting package you have, but bandwidth and hosting server hard drive space are unlimited - you are only limited in terms of the CPU usage quota and the amount of hosted domains.


Beside all the common tools, it is extremely important when the web hosting plans provider makes sure that your web hosting content is shielded. Hence, the presence of automated backups is obligatory and you should make sure in advance if the hosting vendor of your choice is offering such. We conduct day-to-day backups and maintains backups for the past 7 days. The backup includes your web site files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to speak with our technical support department. They answer in less than an hour, so if you deleted those website files accidentally - do not come apart at the seams, hope dies hard!
