Over the years, the need for website hosting services has expanded hugely, but customers also want moderate prices. The service hosting providers have devised is called web hosting. These hosting firms host many customers on the very same web server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by placing limitations on the resources each web hosting account is allowed to resort to. This allows for both stable performance and lower operational costs as compared to a dedicated hosting, which is used by just a single person, and permits web hosting service providers to offer low prices to their customers.

What can you accomplish with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts traditionally offer different website, e-mail and database administration features - a web hosting Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin interface, and often webmail - to access your mailboxes. At Xgen Hosting, we offer all these tools at modest prices. We have both monthly and annual invoicing options and also provide a cheap domain registration with each of our shared hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one place with us - our user-friendly hosting CP has all the functionalities you need to handle your files, DNS resource records, register and renew more domains, create mailbox accounts and mail aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and automatically configure your e-mail software client. How many domains you can accommodate in your shared hosting account is dependent on the website hosting plan you have, but bandwidth and disk storage space are unlimited - you are only limited when it comes to the central processing unit usage quota and the quantity of hosted domain names.


Aside from all the standard features, it is extremely important when the hosting services provider guarantees that your hosting content is protected. For this reason, the availability of periodic backups is mandatory and you should settle in advance if the web hosting vendor of your choosing is offering such. We offer daily backups and preserves backups for the past one week. The backup includes your web files and databases and to have it retrieved, you have to talk to our tech support staff. They answer in less than one hour, so if you erased those web files by chance - do not come apart at the seams, hope dies last!
