The most principal and popularly availed of form of web hosting is the web hosting service. It represents a means to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and handling a server. Furthermore, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name denotes, the web hosting service is a type of service where numerous customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This means that all web server components such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are allotted among the users whose accounts are on that very same server. This is mostly rendered tenable by opening separate accounts for the separate clients and setting specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are allocated in order to restrain the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overloading. Usually, web hosting customers do not have complete root access to the server's configuration files, which essentially denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the server aside from their own hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may utilize are determined by the hosting provider that possesses the server and by the given hosting plan. That leads to the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting servers split among the users?

Hosting corporations that furnish web hosting solutions normally have various website hosting plans. Those packages involve diverse amounts of web hosting resources and specifications, which in fact set the limitations that a website hosting account will have. The client may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The hosting package will then determine what restrictions the client's account will have, once set up. The prices and the specifications of the website hosting plans are determined by the particular web hosting distributor. Depending on the policy of the provider, the web hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting solution and the standard shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" suppliers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are determined by the business policy of the specific provider and, of course, the demands of the given customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the normal web hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they involve. Free web hosting firms are not able to keep a huge number of web hosting servers, therefore, they plainly host more users on one single server by lowering the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only if the servers are kept under surveillance and administered appropriately, because the large number of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash over and over again. Most of the free website hosting companies, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's quite tough to come across a free of cost web hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting vendors usually offer free customer support even to the free website hosting customers, because they want their websites to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid website hosting package, which offers more web hosting resources. Such firm, for instance, is, which is among the largest and eldest free web hosting corporations in the world.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting corporations such as us, may afford to maintain many servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting package, however, does not necessarily mean that this service has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the actual service which you're receiving. Additionally, we also provide a free extra with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of charge-free web page skins. As a website hosting vendor, we do worry about our good name and that's why if you pick us, you can rest certain that you won't get deceived into buying a service that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for persons who want to host a standard web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (aka a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when selecting a hosting distributor, you should also ponder about scalability, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can bring about site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your web site.
