A description of site hosting

The most standard and frequently used kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your web page without having to understand much about programming and running a web server. Besides, it's also the most economical type of site hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. Nevertheless, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared webspace hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared hosting solution is a form of service where lots of users share the resources of one and the same hosting server. This implies that all hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is normally made feasible by creating separate accounts for the different users and imposing specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are fixed so as to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overburdening. Typically, shared web space hosting clients do not have root access to the server's config files, which primarily implies that they do not have access to anything else on the server aside from their very own shared website hosting account. The webspace hosting features that each account may utilize are determined by the web hosting supplier that owns the web server and by the particular web space hosting package. That causes the second essential question:

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

Web hosting suppliers that distribute shared webspace hosting accounts typically have diverse web space hosting plans. Those packages involve diverse quotas of web hosting features and specifications, which in fact set the limitations that a site hosting package will include. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The web space hosting plan will then determine what limits the customer's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the specs of the hosting plans are defined by the given hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the supplier, the shared web page hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the regular shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to state, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they really are determined by the business tactics of the given firm and, of course, the requirements of the given customer.

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

Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they provide. Free web site hosting companies are not able to keep an enormous amount of servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more customers on one single server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the hosting servers are supervised and administered properly, since the great amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash regularly. Most of the free webspace hosting firms, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's very difficult to find a free webspace hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors normally provide free technical support even to the free web space hosting users, because they want their web pages to enlarge so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid site hosting plan, which offers more webspace hosting resources. Such vendor, for instance, is, which is one of the largest and eldest free webspace hosting companies worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting distributors such as Exclusive Hosting, for instance, are able to keep plenty of servers and so, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich web space hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web space hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a site hosting solution, though, does not automatically mean that this plan has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're obtaining. The first-class web space hosting suppliers that have been around for quite a while are displaying their prices and plan features in a realistic fashion, so that the client may be aware of what indeed he is receiving. What's more, some of them offer a free extra with the web hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of cost-free website themes that are provided by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such web site hosting distributors do look after their good name and that is the reason why if you go with them, you can be confident that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a shared site hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for individuals who want to host a normal website, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared webspace hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful web site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a website hosting company, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a separate supplier, which can bring about website complications and even continued downtime for your web portal. So, picking a web hosting company like 'Exclusive Hosting', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you a lot of frustrations in the long run.
