An interpretation of web site hosting

The most basic and widely used type of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a means to host your web page without having to know much about programming and operating a web hosting server. Additionally, it's also the cheapest form of hosting and it's indeed affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared webspace hosting?

As the name designates, the shared web site hosting service is a type of service where multiple customers share the system reserves of one and the same web server. This goes to say that all web server constituents such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is usually made achievable by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and fixing some limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limits are appointed in order to prevent the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overburdening. Usually, shared web space hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the hosting server's config files, which principally denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the server apart from their very own shared hosting account. The webspace hosting resources that each account may use are determined by the hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the given web hosting package. That predetermines the second vital question:

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

Hosting firms that furnish shared web space hosting solutions commonly have various webspace hosting plans. Those packages provide diverse amounts of web hosting features and specifications, which in fact define the limitations that a web space hosting package will have. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The site hosting package will then determine what limitations the customer's account will have, once set up. The costs and the specs of the hosting packages are determined by the particular hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the company, the shared web site hosting service can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting service and the classic shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they indeed are determined by the marketing strategy of the given distributor and, of course, the requirements of the given user.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the typical shared site hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they contain. Free web site hosting distributors are not capable of maintaining an immense amount of hosting servers, therefore, they just host more users on one single server by decreasing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web hosting servers are supervised and dealt with appropriately, since the immense number of accounts may make the hosting server crash frequently. Most of the free website hosting firms, however, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to find a free of cost web hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting companies typically offer free technical support even to the free hosting users, because they want their sites to expand so that they subsequently migrate to a paid site hosting package, which includes more site hosting features. Such supplier, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and eldest free web space hosting companies worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting providers such as Rai Hosting, for example, may afford to keep multiple hosting servers and so, they are able to offer much more feature-rich web space hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web space hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web space hosting service, though, does not automatically mean that this solution has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're obtaining. The first-rate hosting firms that have been around for quite some time are exhibiting their price tags and package specs in an objective way, so that the client may acquainted with what exactly he is getting. What's more, some of these provide a free extra with the site hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free website templates that are furnished by 'Rai Hosting'. Such webspace hosting firms do look after their reputation and that's why if you pick them, you can rest calm that you won't get deluded into paying for an account that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I anticipate from a shared site hosting service?

The shared web site hosting service is best for persons who desire to host an average site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web site hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows bigger, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich web space hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a website hosting supplier, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a separate supplier, which can create web site complications and even prolonged downtime for your web portal. Hence, going with a web space hosting company such as 'Rai Hosting', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of difficulties in the long run.
