What Does Shared Hosting Represent?

The most primary and regularly availed of type of web hosting is the hosting service. It represents a means to host your web site without having to be much informed about programming and administering a server. What's more, it's also the cheapest type of web hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Still, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name implies, the hosting solution is a form of service where many users share the resources of one and the same web hosting server. This means that all web hosting server components such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards etc. are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that very same web hosting server. This is mainly rendered viable by opening different accounts for the separate customers and setting certain limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are appointed in order to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Usually, hosting users do not have full root access to the server's config files, which principally signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server beside their own web hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may use are fixed by the web hosting supplier that possesses the server and by the respective website hosting plan. That brings about the second vital question:

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

Hosting companies that furnish hosting solutions commonly have various website hosting packages. Those plans contain diverse quotas of web hosting resources and specifications, which in fact set the limits that a web hosting plan will have. The customer may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will fit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the client's account will involve, once set up. The prices and the specifications of the website hosting plans are defined by the specific hosting supplier. Based on the politics of the company, the hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting service and the common shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to claim, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they actually are dependent on the business tactics of the specific company and, of course, the requirements of the given client.

What is the contrast between the free and the standard hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they contain. Free hosting suppliers are not capable of maintaining an immense amount of servers, therefore, they just host more clients on a single server by reducing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web servers are monitored and tackled appropriately, since the immense amount of accounts may make the web server crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free website hosting distributors, however, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite difficult to find a free of cost web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations usually provide free customer support even to the free website hosting clients, since they want their websites to enlarge so that they eventually migrate to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. One such company, for example, is, which is one of the largest and oldest free website hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, traditional hosting firms like us, may afford to keep many hosting servers and as a result, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, though, does not necessarily signify that this plan has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the actual service which you're receiving. Besides, we also give a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of complimentary web templates. As a website hosting provider, we do care about our good name and that's why if you pick us, you can be assured that you won't get tricked into purchasing a package that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a hosting service?

The hosting service is best for those who are looking to host an average site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, though, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows bigger, your website will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated packages, a VPS (aka a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated package. Therefore, when picking a website hosting vendor, you should also ponder about scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a different distributor, which can bring about site predicaments and even continuous downtime for your web site. If you pick as your website hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will spare you lots of inconveniences in the long run.
