An explanation of web page hosting

The most archetypal and popularly utilized form of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your site without having to be much informed about programming and running a server. Moreover, it's also the most economical form of site hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. However, what is shared webspace hosting?

What is shared webspace hosting?

As the name designates, the shared website hosting solution is a form of service where many customers share the reserves of the same hosting server. This means that all web server ingredients like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are divided among the customers whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is mainly made viable by creating separate accounts for the different users and fixing certain limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are applied so as to hinder the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overloading. Typically, shared hosting users do not have root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files, which principally indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the server aside from their own personal shared website hosting account. The web page hosting resources that each account may avail of are fixed by the hosting corporation that owns the hosting server and by the given hosting package. That entails the second vital question:

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

Hosting vendors that offer shared web page hosting plans normally have various website hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse quotas of web hosting features and specifications, which actually determine the limitations that a webspace hosting account will include. The client may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will befit him best. The site hosting package will then determine what restrictions the customer's account will include, once opened. The prices and the features of the web hosting packages are chosen by the given web hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the supplier, the shared website hosting solution falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the typical shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchandisers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are dependent on the business strategy of the given company and, of course, the demands of the specific customer.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the common shared website hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they provide. Free site hosting distributors are not able to maintain an enormous amount of hosting servers, hence, they just accommodate more clients on one single web server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web hosting servers are supervised and tackled properly, because the great amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash again and again. Most of the free site hosting corporations, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to come across a free of cost web hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting companies typically offer free client support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their sites to grow so that they eventually move to a paid web hosting package, which offers more webspace hosting features. One such firm, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free hosting vendors worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting firms like BRAND A CLOUD, for instance, may afford to maintain many web servers and so, they are able to offer much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the webspace hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a webspace hosting solution, however, does not automatically signify that this service has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're getting. The best site hosting distributors that have been around for quite a while are displaying their prices and plan configurations in an objective manner, so that the customer may be aware of what indeed he is obtaining. Furthermore, some of them provide a free extra with the site hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free-of-cost skins that are provided by 'BRAND A CLOUD'. Such website hosting firms do look after their reputation and this is the reason why if you select them, you can rest confident that you won't get tricked into buying a service that you cannot in fact use.

What should I expect from a shared website hosting solution?

The shared hosting solution is best for those who would like to host an average web page, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web page hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more feature-rich site hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a web site hosting supplier, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a separate vendor, which can cause site problems and even continuous downtime for your web page. Hence, selecting a site hosting company such as 'BRAND A CLOUD', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will spare you a lot of difficulties in the future.
