An explanation of webspace hosting

The most archetypal and regularly utilized type of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your site without having to understand much about programming and administrating a web hosting server. Besides, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. However, what is shared web site hosting?

What is shared web site hosting?

As the name suggests, the shared web space hosting solution is a sort of service where lots of customers share the system reserves of the same web hosting server. This goes to say that all web hosting server components such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are allotted among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is mainly made viable by setting up different accounts for the different customers and applying given limits and quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are set in order to prevent the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Usually, shared hosting clients do not have root access to the web server's configuration files, which principally signifies that they cannot access anything else on the web server aside from their very own shared hosting account. The web space hosting resources that each account may utilize are set by the hosting company that owns the server and by the given web site hosting plan. That leads to the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the customers?

Web hosting distributors that offer shared web space hosting services normally have various website hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse amounts of web site hosting resources and specifications, which in fact define the restrictions that a hosting package will include. The client may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The web site hosting plan will then determine what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the specs of the web hosting plans are chosen by the actual hosting distributor. Depending on the policy of the distributor, the shared web site hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting solution and the typical shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" vendors 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 dependent on the business strategy of the particular vendor and, of course, the demands of the specific user.

What is the distinction between the free and the common shared web space hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they offer. Free webspace hosting corporations are not able to maintain an enormous number of web hosting servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on a single hosting server by reducing the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web servers are monitored and maintained properly, because the great number of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash repeatedly. Most of the free web site hosting providers, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite tough to stumble upon a free of cost web hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting providers commonly offer free client support even to the free site hosting users, because they want their sites to enlarge so that they eventually migrate to a paid website hosting account, which includes more hosting resources. Such firm, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free site hosting companies worldwide.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting corporations such as Keller Hosting, for instance, may afford to maintain multiple web hosting servers and so, they may afford to provide much more powerful web space hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting package, however, does not automatically imply that this service has a finer quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're getting. The top site hosting companies that have been around for quite some time are showing their prices and plan configurations in a realistic fashion, so that the client may familiar with what exactly he is obtaining. Additionally, some of them offer a free bonus with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-charge web templates that are offered by 'Keller Hosting'. Such webspace hosting suppliers do worry about their good name and this is the reason why if you choose them, you can be calm that you won't get deluded into buying a package that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I expect from a shared hosting service?

The shared web page hosting solution is best for people who want to host a standard web page, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web space hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business gets bigger, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual private web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a web hosting vendor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different vendor, which can create website problems and even prolonged downtime for your website. Hence, selecting a hosting distributor such as 'Keller Hosting', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will spare you lots of troubles in the long run.
