An interpretation of site hosting

The most standard and regularly availed of variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your web page without having to know much about programming and running a web server. Moreover, it's also the most inexpensive type of website hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. However, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared web hosting?

As the name hints, the shared web site hosting solution is a sort of service where many clients share the resources of one and the same hosting server. This denotes that all server constituents such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards and so on, are divided among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is mainly rendered achievable by opening different accounts for the different customers and allocating specific limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are fixed in order to prevent the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Normally, shared hosting clients do not have full root access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which basically denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the web server beside their own shared website hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may avail of are determined by the hosting corporation that owns the web hosting server and by the particular web space hosting package. That leads to the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the clients?

Hosting providers that provide shared hosting packages typically have different web space hosting packages. Those packages involve different amounts of website hosting features and specifications, which actually determine the restrictions that a hosting account will have. The client may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will befit him best. The webspace hosting package will then determine what restrictions the user's account will have, once set up. The costs and the specifications of the website hosting plans are specified by the actual hosting corporation. Based on the politics of the company, the shared site hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the regular shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to claim, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they actually depend on the marketing tactics of the given distributor and, of course, the demands of the specific user.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the popular shared web page hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they provide. Free web site hosting providers are not capable of keeping a huge amount of hosting servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on one single server by reducing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web hosting servers are kept under surveillance and administered properly, since the immense amount of accounts may make the web server crash repeatedly. The majority of the free web hosting vendors, though, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to find a free web hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting companies typically provide free customer support even to the free web hosting customers, since they want their web sites to grow so that they eventually move to a paid webspace hosting package, which includes more site hosting features. Such supplier, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free website hosting vendors worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting corporations such as Exclusive Hosting, for instance, are able to keep plenty of web servers and as a result, they are able to provide much more powerful web site hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web space hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a webspace hosting service, however, does not necessarily signify that this package has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're receiving. The first-rate webspace hosting providers that have been around for a long time are exhibiting their prices and plan specifications in an objective manner, so that the customer may acquainted with what in fact he is receiving. Furthermore, some of them offer a free extra with the website hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of cost-free web design themes that are supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such site hosting distributors do look after their reputation and that's why if you pick them, you can rest calm that you won't get swindled into paying for a package that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a shared hosting solution?

The shared web hosting solution is best for people who desire to host a standard web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared website hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a webspace hosting vendor, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a separate distributor, which can cause site complications and even continuous downtime for your web page. Therefore, picking a webspace hosting supplier such as 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will save you a lot of complications in the future.
