Premium Web Hosting Services

There are a number of premium services that FastWebHost offers. They are as follows:

Shared Hosting

Shared hosting involves multiple websites hosted on a single server. FastWebHost uses intense security measures all around. This is also the more affordable hosting offered through the Value, Business, and Enterprise plans. Each plan provides a specific amount of web space, bandwidth, domains, and email accounts.

I have summarized the features into a table,

VPS Hosting

4 virtual private servers are available whenever you want the added security of having your own server opposed to paying for a dedicated server. Each FastWebHost VPS plan comes with a specific amount of memory, a 2-core processor, web storage, and bandwidth.
