For example, the personal bloggers will have their requirements such as 500MB-5GB. But if they want to resell that space or run as a web hosting business then that would require another 4GB RAM.
Most of the hosting providers use HDD (Hard Disk Drive) for storage management. But ServerCake provides SSD Hosting with high speed where your website will respond in milliseconds. To know the difference and performance of the SSD, then follow this article SSD vs HDD comparison.
Bandwidth is simply the data transfer speed in your network connection. It’s a range of frequencies or wavelength within a band used to transmit signal. It normally defined as Bps (bits per second), Gbps (gigabits per second).

Web hosting features are included in the main area called cPanel.

It is a domain name points to your primary website in your web hosting account. This is done to reserve the domain name for the future business development and protecting against cybersquatting. You can add the domain as subdomain in your cPanel account.

You can create multiple domains in same web hosting account. You can have ServerCake.com and then a ServerCake.in as an add-on domain. The ServerCake.in will stand as a separate website. The visitors will not aware that it is displayed from the same web hosting account. For an Addon domain also we can create the email address and the forwarders, auto responders, i.e, whatever you have done for the primary domain name. This addon domain helps the people who have multiple websites and handling it under one account.
A subdomain has a part of your domain name like pay.servercake.com from servercake.com. It will act as a separate website and will redirect your website to the payment page content. We can add subdomains from your primary domain name. The website holders can manage their website by giving a different look for visitors.
All these Parked, Addon, sub domains are provided by the services in number and space allowed for the website content. Sometimes if we create multiple contents in your website then you have to manage the website traffic load.
The account transfer is nothing but transferring the web hosting account from one web hosting provider to another. When you do this you should have to move the files and database, email and other scripts whatever you have managed under your account.
This transfer is normally done by web hosting providers by free of cost. The ServerCake does the same by zero-downtime. For transferring the files from FTP by installing FileZilla through that you can move all your files from the database of old web hosting providers.
