Over the years, the need for hosting services has expanded hugely, but users also want moderate prices. The service web hosting vendors have introduced is called web hosting. These web hosting vendors accommodate a lot of customers on the same server, making certain that they do not interfere with each other by placing restrictions on the resources each shared account is allowed to avail of. This allows for both stable performance and lower operating costs in comparison to a dedicated hosting, which is utilized by only one user, and allows hosting providers to offer cheap prices to their customers.

What can you do with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts normally include various website, email and database administration tools - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager interface, an FTP client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and normally webmail - to check your email boxes. At Platinum Web Services, we offer all these features at reasonable prices. We offer both monthly and annual invoicing options and also provide a cheap domain registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also manage everything from one place with us - our user-friendly hosting Control Panel includes all the functions you need to administer your website files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domain names, set up e-mail accounts and mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your e-mail software client. How many domain names you can host in your web hosting account is dependent on the website hosting package you have, but bandwidth and hosting server disk storage space are unmetered - you are only limited when it comes to the central processing unit allowance and the amount of hosted domains.


Beside all the usual features, it is extremely important when the hosting solutions provider guarantees that your data is protected. That is why the availability of automated backups is compulsory and you should discover in advance if the provider of your choice is offering such. We conduct everyday backups and keeps backups for the past one week. The backup comprises your web site files and databases and to have it repaired, you need to contact our technical support staff. They get back to you in less than an hour, so if you deleted those web files by chance - do not be startled, hope still survives!
