A description of website hosting

The most basic and commonly utilized variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a means to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and running a web server. Moreover, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name designates, the shared web space hosting service is a sort of service where numerous clients share the reserves of the same server. This indicates that all web server constituents like CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs etc. are distributed among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is typically rendered accomplishable by creating separate accounts for the separate customers and appointing given limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limits are allocated so as to hinder the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Normally, shared hosting users do not have full root-level access to the web server's configuration files, which primarily indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the server but their own website hosting account. The site hosting features that each account may resort to are determined by the web hosting supplier that possesses the server and by the particular web site hosting plan. That leads to the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting web servers shared among the users?

Hosting distributors that deliver shared web hosting packages normally have various website hosting packages. Those plans contain different amounts of hosting resources and specs, which actually set the limits that a web hosting plan will include. The user may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what restrictions the user's account will have, once opened. The costs and the specs of the site hosting plans are determined by the particular web hosting corporation. Based on the politics of the vendor, the shared web page hosting service falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the regular shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to say, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are determined by the business strategy of the specific vendor and, of course, the needs of the specific customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the standard shared website hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they offer. Free web site hosting providers are not capable of maintaining an enormous amount of hosting servers, hence, they merely accommodate more customers on a single web server by reducing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web servers are monitored and tackled properly, since the immense amount of accounts may causer the web server to crash repeatedly. Most of the free webspace hosting firms, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's very tough to stumble upon a free site hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting vendors typically offer free client support even to the free site hosting clients, because they want their web portals to get bigger so that they subsequently migrate to a paid webspace hosting account, which offers more site hosting resources. One such distributor, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free hosting distributors in the world.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting suppliers such as SAHAKA Hosting, for instance, are able to maintain numerous hosting servers and so, they may afford to offer much more powerful web space hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web site hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web site hosting service, however, does not automatically mean that this solution has a better quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're receiving. The first-class web space hosting firms that have been around for quite some time are revealing their prices and plan specifications in an objective fashion, so that the customer may be informed of what exactly he is receiving. Moreover, some of them offer a free bonus with the web space hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary design skins that are offered by 'SAHAKA Hosting'. Such web space hosting providers do worry about their reputation and this is the reason why if you pick them, you can be calm that you won't get duped into buying a solution that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I expect from a shared web page hosting service?

The shared web hosting service is best for persons who are looking to host a standard web site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web page hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business expands, your web page will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more powerful hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a hosting provider, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different company, which can create site complications and even extended downtime for your web portal. Therefore, selecting a web hosting provider like 'SAHAKA Hosting', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is vital and will spare you lots of troubles in the future.
