An interpretation of web space hosting
The most principal and commonly used form of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your website without having to know much about programming and running a server. Additionally, it's also the most economical type of web hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. However, what is shared site hosting?
What is shared hosting?
As the name denotes, the shared web page hosting solution is a form of service where multiple users share the resources of one and the same web hosting server. This denotes that all hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is mostly rendered feasible by setting up separate accounts for the separate clients and appointing given limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are applied in order to hinder the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Typically, shared website hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which principally denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server but their own personal shared hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may use are fixed by the web hosting firm that possesses the hosting server and by the respective web site hosting plan. That brings on the second vital question:
How are the shared hosting web servers shared among the clients?
Hosting companies that deliver shared web page hosting solutions usually have various site hosting packages. Those plans provide diverse quotas of web space hosting resources and specs, which in fact determine the limitations that a web hosting plan will include. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The webspace hosting package will then determine what restrictions the client's account will include, once opened. The prices and the features of the site hosting plans are specified by the actual web hosting provider. Based on the politics of the provider, the shared web hosting solution can be divided into two categories - the free hosting service and the classic shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" wholesalers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to say, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they indeed are determined by the business policy of the specific distributor and, of course, the needs of the given customer.
What is the contrast between the free of cost and the common shared site hosting solution?
Of course, the principal difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they involve. Free web hosting companies are not able to maintain an immense number of web servers, hence, they just accommodate more customers on one single hosting server by lowering the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web servers are monitored and dealt with appropriately, since the huge amount of accounts may cause the server to crash over and over again. Most of the free webspace hosting companies, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to stumble upon a free of charge hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting providers normally offer free technical support even to the free webspace hosting customers, because they want their websites to grow so that they eventually move to a paid website hosting package, which includes more web space hosting features. Such vendor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and oldest free web hosting providers in the world.
At the same time, established shared web hosting providers like Exclusive Hosting, for instance, may afford to keep plenty of web servers and as a result, they may afford to provide much more powerful website hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the web space hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a hosting solution, though, does not automatically mean that this solution has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the real service which you're getting. The best web hosting companies that have been around for quite some time are presenting their prices and package configurations in an objective fashion, so that the customer may know what indeed he is receiving. Additionally, some of them give a free extra with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of charge-free web design themes that are supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such site hosting distributors do worry about their reputation and this is the reason why if you choose them, you can rest calm that you won't get beguiled into buying a solution that you cannot actually avail of.
What should I expect from a shared web site hosting solution?
The shared web hosting service is best for people who desire to host a standard web site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web page hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your web site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a webspace hosting company, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a separate distributor, which can cause website predicaments and even continuous downtime for your web page. Therefore, going with a webspace hosting company like 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of annoyances in the future.
