A description of website hosting

The most elemental and regularly availed of variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your website without having to understand much about programming and administering a web server. In addition to this, it's also the most economical form of site hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared web hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared hosting service is a sort of service where multiple clients share the resources of one and the same web server. This signifies that all hosting server elements like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is normally rendered viable by opening different accounts for the different clients and setting specific limits and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set in order to prevent the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared hosting clients do not have root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which essentially indicates that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server but their own personal shared hosting account. The web space hosting features that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting provider that owns the web server and by the particular hosting package. That necessitates the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Web hosting vendors that provide shared web page hosting plans usually have different site hosting plans. Those plans include different quotas of site hosting features and specs, which actually set the limits that a site hosting account will include. The user may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what restrictions the customer's account will include, once set up. The costs and the specs of the hosting plans are fixed by the actual web hosting vendor. Based on the policy of the supplier, the shared site hosting service can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the popular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to allege, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are subject to the business strategy of the given company and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the typical shared web site hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they involve. Free hosting suppliers are not able to maintain a big amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they just accommodate more customers on a single server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the servers are kept under surveillance and tackled properly, because the huge amount of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash over and over again. The majority of the free hosting vendors, however, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's very difficult to come across a free web space hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting distributors usually provide free client support even to the free webspace hosting customers, since they want their web sites to grow bigger so that they eventually move to a paid web site hosting account, which offers more web site hosting resources. Such provider, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free web space hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting suppliers such as SecureBox Hosting, for example, may afford to maintain a lot of servers and so, they may afford to offer much more powerful site hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web site hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, though, does not automatically signify that this plan has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're receiving. The first-class hosting firms that have been around for quite some time are displaying their prices and package configurations in a realistic fashion, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is receiving. Also, some of them give a free extra with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free web layouts that are furnished by 'SecureBox Hosting'. Such web hosting distributors do worry about their good name and that's why if you pick them, you can rest calm that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I anticipate from a shared site hosting service?

The shared website hosting service is best for people who would like to host a standard web portal, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web space hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows, your web page will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich webspace hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a webspace hosting distributor, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different provider, which can bring about web site predicaments and even continuous downtime for your web portal. So, choosing a web space hosting provider such as 'SecureBox Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will spare you a lot of problems in the future.
