A description of website hosting

The most elemental and commonly utilized sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It's a way to host your web page without having to understand much about programming and managing a web server. Furthermore, it's also the most inexpensive type of web hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Still, what is shared webspace hosting?

What is shared web site hosting?

As the name designates, the shared web page hosting solution is a kind of service where a lot of customers share the resources of the same server. This indicates that all web hosting server components such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are divided among the users whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is typically rendered achievable by opening different accounts for the different users and assigning specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated in order to prevent the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared website hosting clients do not have full root access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which essentially means that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server aside from their own personal shared hosting account. The web page hosting features that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting firm that possesses the web hosting server and by the particular website hosting package. That brings on the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the users?

Web hosting firms that supply shared web hosting services normally have different web hosting packages. Those packages contain different amounts of web site hosting features and specifications, which in fact determine the restrictions that a web space hosting package will have. The customer may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The webspace hosting package will then define what limitations the client's account will include, once opened. The costs and the specifications of the web site hosting plans are fixed by the very web hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the corporation, the shared hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting solution and the typical shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" vendors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are dependent on the business strategy of the specific vendor and, of course, the needs of the given customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the regular shared web page hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they provide. Free site hosting corporations are not capable of keeping a great number of servers, hence, they simply host more clients on one web hosting server by decreasing the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the servers are supervised and handled properly, because the large amount of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash frequently. The majority of the free web space hosting firms, though, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to discover a free of charge hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting firms usually offer free technical support even to the free web hosting users, since they want their web portals to enlarge so that they eventually move to a paid site hosting package, which includes more web site hosting resources. Such corporation, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free web space hosting suppliers worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting corporations such as Exclusive Hosting, for instance, may afford to keep a lot of web servers and therefore, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich webspace hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web site hosting account, however, does not automatically signify that this package has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the real service which you're getting. The best web space hosting providers that have been around for quite some time are presenting their price tags and package configurations in an objective fashion, so that the client may be informed of what indeed he is getting. In addition, some of these provide a free bonus with the site hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of fee-free website themes that are provided by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such web hosting companies do look after their reputation and that is the reason why if you go with them, you can be certain that you won't get deceived into purchasing a package that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a shared site hosting service?

The shared hosting service is best for persons who wish to host a basic web portal, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web page hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business expands, your web site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more feature-rich website hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a web space hosting vendor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a separate distributor, which can create website complications and even extended downtime for your site. So, selecting a site hosting vendor such as 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will spare you a lot of nuisances in the long run.
