An interpretation of site hosting

The most archetypal and frequently utilized kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It's a means to host your web page without having to understand much about programming and operating a server. In addition, it's also the cheapest type of web site hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared web site hosting?

What is shared site hosting?

As the name suggests, the shared webspace hosting solution is a type of service where numerous customers share the resources of one and the same web server. This signifies that all server constituents like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are shared among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is normally made tenable by creating different accounts for the different clients and allocating some restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set so as to restrain the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Typically, shared webspace hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the hosting server's config files, which essentially suggests that they do not have access to anything else on the server aside from their own personal web hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting company that owns the web hosting server and by the particular web space hosting package. That results in the second essential question:

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

Hosting corporations that offer shared hosting services usually have various web space hosting packages. Those packages provide different quotas of hosting resources and specifications, which in fact determine the limits that a web hosting account will have. The customer may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will fit him best. The web site hosting plan will then define what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the features of the site hosting packages are chosen by the particular hosting provider. Depending on the policy of the firm, the shared webspace hosting service falls into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the common shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they really depend on the marketing policy of the specific firm and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the typical shared web page hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they provide. Free web hosting vendors are not capable of maintaining an enormous number of web servers, therefore, they just host more users on one web hosting server by decreasing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the hosting servers are kept under surveillance and dealt with properly, since the big number of accounts may causer the web server to crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free web site hosting distributors, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite hard to come across a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors usually offer free technical support even to the free hosting clients, since they want their sites to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid webspace hosting package, which includes more hosting features. One such supplier, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free website hosting firms in the world.

At the same time, established shared web hosting firms like Ultra Hosting, for example, may afford to maintain plenty of servers and as a result, they may afford to offer much more powerful web space hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web space hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web space hosting account, however, does not automatically denote that this solution has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. The first-class web space hosting distributors that have been around for quite a while are revealing their prices and plan specifications in a realistic manner, so that the client may familiar with what indeed he is getting. In addition, some of these give a free extra with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of charge-free web site layouts that are supplied by 'Ultra Hosting'. Such site hosting vendors do care about their good name and this is the reason why if you choose them, you can rest certain that you won't get hoaxed into buying a package that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I expect from a shared web site hosting service?

The shared webspace hosting solution is best for those who wish to host an average web portal, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared site hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows bigger, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a hosting provider, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a separate provider, which can bring about site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your web page. Hence, choosing a webspace hosting vendor like 'Ultra Hosting', which can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will spare you lots of problems in the long run.
