Over the years, the demand for web hosting solutions has escalated hugely, but people also want cheap prices. The solution web hosting suppliers have developed is called shared hosting. These web hosting corporations accommodate lots of customers on one server, making certain that they do not intervene with each other by imposing limitations on the server resources each hosting account is allowed to resort to. This allows for both agreeable performance and lower running costs as compared to a dedicated server, which is used by only one individual, and enables web hosting vendors to offer inexpensive prices to their customers.

What can you accomplish with a shared hosting account?

The shared hosting accounts typically offer multiple website, e-mail and database management features - a web hosting CP, a File Manager tool, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and often webmail - to access your email mailbox accounts. At Steele Design Studio limited, we provide all these tools at attractive rates. We have both monthly and annual billing options and also provide a cheap domain registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also manage everything from one location with us - our user-friendly hosting CP offers all the tools you need to manage your web files, Domain Name System records, register and renew more domain names, create email box accounts and e-mail aliases, enable e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your mail client software. How many domains you can accommodate in your account is dependent on the hosting plan you have, but bandwidth and content storage space are unlimited - you are solely restricted in terms of the central processing unit usage and the quantity of hosted domains.


Aside from all the common features, it is very important when the web hosting services provider guarantees that your content is secure. Hence, the availability of scheduled backups is a must and you should discover in advance if the host of your choosing is offering such. We conduct day-to-day backups and maintains backups for the past 7 days. The backup contains your website files and databases and to have it retrieved, you need to speak with our tech support department. They answer in less than an hour, so if you erased those files haphazardly - do not panic, keep the faith!
