An explanation of hosting

The most principal and regularly used sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a means to host your web page without having to know much about programming and managing a web hosting server. Furthermore, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared website hosting?

As the name designates, the shared hosting service is a kind of service where a lot of clients share the system reserves of the same web hosting server. This indicates that all web server ingredients like CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs and so on, are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that very same web hosting server. This is usually made attainable by setting up different accounts for the separate clients and imposing some restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are imposed so as to restrain the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared web space hosting customers do not have complete root-level access to the server's config files, which principally signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server but their own personal shared website hosting account. The webspace hosting features that each account may resort to are determined by the hosting supplier that possesses the server and by the respective website hosting package. That causes the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the users?

Web hosting providers that provide shared web page hosting packages typically have various site hosting packages. Those packages contain diverse quotas of webspace hosting resources and specifications, which in fact define the limitations that a web site hosting account will have. The customer may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The site hosting plan will then determine what limits the client's account will include, once created. The costs and the specs of the website hosting packages are chosen by the specific hosting vendor. Based on the politics of the vendor, the shared web page hosting solution can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the popular shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" vendors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to judge, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they really are subject to the marketing policy of the given distributor and, of course, the needs of the particular client.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the standard shared hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they include. Free site hosting suppliers are not capable of maintaining a large number of servers, hence, they just host more clients on one single web hosting server by reducing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web servers are kept under surveillance and administered appropriately, since the immense amount of accounts may causer the web server to crash on a regular basis. Most of the free web hosting providers, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's quite tough to come across a free of charge website hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations commonly provide free client support even to the free web site hosting customers, since they want their web portals to grow so that they eventually migrate to a paid site hosting account, which includes more site hosting resources. One such supplier, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and oldest free webspace hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting vendors like de Hosting, for example, are able to maintain lots of web hosting servers and therefore, they may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a site hosting package, however, does not automatically denote that this plan has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're receiving. The best site hosting corporations that have been around for quite a while are showing their prices and plan specifications in an objective way, so that the client may be aware of what exactly he is obtaining. Also, some of them offer a free extra with the hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of charge-free website skins that are supplied by 'de Hosting'. Such webspace hosting vendors do care about their good name and that is the reason why if you choose them, you can be confident that you won't get hoaxed into buying a solution that you cannot actually use.

What should I expect from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared hosting service is best for individuals who want to host a normal web page, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful webspace hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a web site hosting distributor, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a separate vendor, which can cause website predicaments and even continued downtime for your web site. So, selecting a webspace hosting provider like 'de Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of inconveniences in the long run.
