A definition of web site hosting

The most primary and universally used sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your web portal without having to be much informed about programming and handling a hosting server. Moreover, it's also the cheapest form of web hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. However, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name designates, the shared webspace hosting solution is a kind of service where multiple clients share the system reserves of the same hosting server. This means that all web server components such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is usually made possible by creating separate accounts for the separate users and imposing specific limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are applied in order to hinder the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overburdening. Usually, shared hosting customers do not have complete root-level access to the hosting server's config files, which essentially goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server beside their very own shared web hosting account. The web page hosting resources that each account may use are determined by the hosting distributor that owns the web hosting server and by the respective webspace hosting package. That results in the second important question:

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

Hosting vendors that offer shared website hosting packages normally have various hosting plans. Those packages include diverse quotas of web site hosting features and specifications, which in fact fix the limits that a website hosting package will include. The user may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will befit him best. The site hosting plan will then define what limitations the customer's account will include, once opened. The costs and the specs of the site hosting plans are specified by the actual web hosting company. Based on the politics of the provider, the shared website hosting solution can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the normal shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to tell, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they actually are dependent on the marketing policy of the given firm and, of course, the demands of the given user.

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

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they offer. Free webspace hosting companies are not capable of maintaining a big amount of hosting servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on one web hosting server by lowering the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the hosting servers are supervised and administered properly, since the big number of accounts may make the hosting server crash over and over again. The majority of the free website hosting corporations, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite tough to discover a free of charge site hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors normally provide free technical support even to the free web space hosting clients, because they want their web pages to expand so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid web site hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. Such distributor, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and oldest free site hosting firms in the world.

At the same time, established shared web hosting suppliers such as Exclusive Hosting, for example, may afford to maintain lots of web servers and therefore, they are able to provide much more feature-rich webspace hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting package, however, does not automatically mean that this plan has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the real service which you're obtaining. The best web space hosting distributors that have been around for quite a while are listing their price tags and package specs in an objective way, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is getting. Furthermore, some of them offer a free bonus with the webspace hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free web site templates that are furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such website hosting providers do worry about their reputation and that is the reason why if you select them, you can be certain that you won't get hoaxed into buying a package that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I expect from a shared website hosting solution?

The shared webspace hosting solution is best for individuals who are looking to host a basic web page, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared web page hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business develops, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich web site hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a webspace hosting distributor, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different provider, which can cause site problems and even prolonged downtime for your website. Hence, choosing a web hosting supplier such as 'Exclusive Hosting', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will spare you lots of troubles in the future.
