An interpretation of webspace hosting

The most elemental and regularly used kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your web page without having to know much about programming and administering a web hosting server. Moreover, it's also the most economical type of website hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Still, what is shared web site hosting?

What is shared site hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared web space hosting solution is a kind of service where a lot of users share the system reserves of one and the same hosting server. This suggests that all hosting server ingredients such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is mostly rendered accomplishable by setting up separate accounts for the different clients and allocating given limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are appointed so as to restrain the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Normally, shared webspace hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files, which principally indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server beside their very own hosting account. The site hosting features that each account may resort to are set by the hosting provider that owns the server and by the particular site hosting plan. That paves the way for the second important question:

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

Web hosting firms that supply shared web site hosting plans typically have diverse web hosting plans. Those plans involve different amounts of web site hosting resources and specifications, which actually define the limits that a website hosting plan will include. The client may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The web space hosting package will then determine what restrictions the user's account will include, once created. The prices and the specifications of the hosting plans are chosen by the given hosting firm. Based on the policy of the corporation, the shared web page hosting solution can be divided into two types - the free hosting solution and the classic shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are subject to the marketing tactics of the given vendor and, of course, the demands of the specific client.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the normal shared hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they offer. Free webspace hosting providers are not capable of maintaining a great amount of servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more clients on one single web server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the servers are kept under surveillance and handled properly, since the big number of accounts may cause the server to crash over and over again. Most of the free web hosting corporations, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to find a free site hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers commonly provide free customer support even to the free web site hosting clients, since they want their websites to expand so that they eventually move to a paid website hosting plan, which includes more hosting features. Such distributor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free webspace hosting suppliers in the world.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting distributors like Rai Hosting, for example, are able to maintain a lot of web hosting servers and therefore, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich web site hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the web site hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a website hosting account, though, does not automatically denote that this package has a better quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the real service which you're obtaining. The top site hosting companies that have been around for quite a while are listing their prices and package specifications in an objective manner, so that the client may know what exactly he is obtaining. In addition, some of these give a free bonus with the web site hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-cost web page themes that are furnished by 'Rai Hosting'. Such hosting providers do worry about their reputation and this is the reason why if you choose them, you can be assured that you won't get tricked into buying an account that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a shared web space hosting solution?

The shared web page hosting service is best for those who desire to host an average site, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web page hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows bigger, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more powerful web space hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a web hosting supplier, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different company, which can create site complications and even extended downtime for your web site. So, going with a website hosting vendor such as 'Rai Hosting', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will spare you lots of nuisances in the long run.
