Over the years, the need for website hosting solutions has increased hugely, but clients also want cheap prices. The solution hosts have invented is called web hosting. These hosting distributors accommodate plenty of customers on the same web server, making sure that they do not interfere with each other by imposing limitations on the resources each web hosting account is permitted to use. This allows for both good performance and lower running costs in contrast to a dedicated hosting, which is utilized by only one single person, and permits hosts to offer moderate prices to their clients.

What can you achieve with a web hosting account?

The web hosting accounts typically come with diverse website, electronic mail and database administration tools - a Control Panel, a File Manager tool, an FTP software client, a phpMyAdmin tool, and often webmail - to access your email boxes. At Tierra Hosting, we offer all these features at reasonable rates. We offer both monthly and annual invoicing options and also offer a cheap domain registration with each of our shared web hosting plans. You can also administer everything from one single location with us - our intuitive web hosting Control Panel has all the functionalities you need to manage your web files, DNS records, register and renew more domain names, create mail accounts and email aliases, activate e-mail forwarding and auto-configure your e-mail software client. How many domains you can host in your account depends on the web hosting package you have, but web traffic and web server hard disk storage space are unmetered - you are solely limited in terms of the central processing unit usage and the number of hosted domains.


Beside all the traditional features, it is extremely important when the website hosting plans provider guarantees that your data is invulnerable. This is why the presence of automatic backups is crucial and you should establish in advance if the service provider of your choosing is offering such. We carry out day-to-day backups and keeps backups for the last seven days. The backup encompasses your web site files and databases and to have it recovered, you need to get in touch with our technical support department. They respond in less than one hour, so if you deleted those web files fortuitously - do not be scared, hope is the last to die!
