Web Hosting is the service by means of which your website and the files contained in it are stored on a server. The Web Hosting Service makes your website accessible to all the Internet users. The site is composed of several files that are placed in a specific folder on the server. Web Hosting means renting a space on the company’s server for a certain period of time. The server is connected to the Internet via a broad traffic band.

The server is a high performance computer, specially designed and created to provide the customers with the possibility of storing several sites and able to serve all the requests coming from the server’s systems and applications. The Web Hosting Service offers businesses and individuals the opportunity to hold a website in the Global Network of Internet.

Besides the allocated storage space on the server, we provide other facilities as well, such as a convenient control panel (cPanel) and several configuration options: adding/editing sub-domains, databases, emails, accessing files, cron jobs, automatic installing of CMS scripts and various statistics about your website visitors.
