An interpretation of web page hosting

The most primary and universally used kind 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 handling a web hosting server. Additionally, it's also the cheapest type of webspace hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. However, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared web site hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared hosting service is a form of service where multiple users share the system reserves of one and the same server. This denotes that all server constituents like CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs etc. are allotted among the clients whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is typically made viable by setting up separate accounts for the different clients and assigning certain limits and quotas for each of them. Those limits are fixed in order to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overloading. Usually, shared web hosting customers do not have root access to the web server's config files, which essentially means that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server but their own website page hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may avail of are fixed by the web hosting vendor that possesses the web server and by the respective webspace hosting plan. That results in the second important question:

How are the shared hosting web servers shared among the users?

Web hosting providers that offer shared web hosting plans commonly have various webspace hosting packages. Those plans contain diverse amounts of webspace hosting resources and specifications, which actually set the limitations that a website hosting package will include. The client may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will befit him best. The web hosting plan will then define what limitations the customer's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the features of the web hosting plans are chosen by the actual web hosting supplier. Based on the politics of the firm, the shared web page hosting solution falls into two categories - the free hosting solution and the regular shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they really are subject to the business tactics of the specific corporation and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the typical shared website hosting solution?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they contain. Free web hosting providers are not capable of maintaining a big amount of servers, hence, they merely host more users on one web server by reducing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the servers are monitored and dealt with appropriately, since the enormous amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash frequently. The majority of the free web space hosting vendors, though, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's very difficult to stumble upon a free hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting providers typically provide free technical support even to the free hosting users, because they want their websites to get bigger so that they subsequently migrate to a paid site hosting package, which offers more web space hosting features. Such firm, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and eldest free site hosting firms in the world.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting firms such as Exclusive Hosting, for instance, may afford to keep a lot of hosting servers and so, they may afford to provide much more feature-rich site hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the web site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a webspace hosting account, however, does not necessarily signify that this package has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're obtaining. The best web hosting corporations that have been around for quite some time are exhibiting their price tags and package features in an objective fashion, so that the client may know what in fact he is receiving. Besides, some of them offer a free extra with the website hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of cost-free website layouts that are offered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such web space hosting vendors do worry about their good name and that's why if you choose them, you can be assured that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a shared webspace hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for people who are looking to host an average web portal, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web space hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows bigger, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a website hosting vendor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up moving your domain name manually to a separate vendor, which can cause site predicaments and even continuous downtime for your web page. Therefore, choosing a web site hosting vendor like 'Exclusive Hosting', which can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will spare you a lot of problems in the future.
