What Exactly is Shared Hosting?
The most archetypal and popularly used sort of web hosting is the website hosting service. It represents a way to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and running a hosting server. What's more, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Still, what is website hosting?
What is website hosting?
As the name indicates, the website hosting solution is a type of service where many customers share the system reserves of one and the same hosting server. This implies that all web hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is mostly rendered viable by creating separate accounts for the separate customers and applying certain limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limits are imposed in order to prevent the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overloading. Typically, website hosting users do not have complete root access to the server's configuration files, which basically indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the web server beside their very own hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may use are set by the hosting supplier that owns the web hosting server and by the particular website hosting plan. That brings about the second essential question:
How are the shared hosting servers divided among the users?
Web hosting distributors that offer website hosting packages typically have various website hosting plans. Those plans provide different amounts of web hosting resources and specs, which actually determine the limitations that a hosting account will have. The client may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The hosting package will then define what limitations the user's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the features of the web hosting plans are fixed by the given web hosting distributor. Depending on the policy of the corporation, the website hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting solution and the regular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" vendors as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they really are determined by the business policy of the specific company and, of course, the needs of the particular user.
What is the contrast between the free of cost and the typical website hosting solution?
Of course, the chief difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of features that they involve. Free hosting corporations are not able to maintain a great number of hosting servers, hence, they plainly accommodate more clients on one hosting server by decreasing the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web servers are supervised and dealt with properly, since the immense number of accounts may causer the web server to crash frequently. Most of the free web hosting corporations, though, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite difficult to discover a free of cost website hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting corporations normally offer free customer support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their sites to get bigger so that they eventually move to a paid web hosting package, which offers more web hosting features. One such distributor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and eldest free website hosting companies in the world.
At the same time, traditional website hosting firms such as us, are able to keep a lot of web servers and hence, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting package, however, does not necessarily mean that this account has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the actual service which you're receiving. Furthermore, we also provide a free bonus with the website hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of gratis website layouts. As a website hosting supplier, we do care about our good name and that's why if you choose us, you can be confident that you won't get deceived into purchasing a plan that you cannot actually use.
What should I expect from a website hosting solution?
The website hosting service is best for individuals who wish to host a basic site, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, though, that a website hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business expands, your web page will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (a.k.a. a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. So, when choosing a website hosting vendor, you should also ponder about scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different supplier, which can cause web site complications and even continued downtime for your website.
