A description of web site hosting

The most fundamental and regularly utilized sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It's a way to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and handling a hosting server. Moreover, it's also the most inexpensive type of web page hosting and it's in fact affordable for everybody. Still, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name hints, the shared web site hosting service is a kind of service where lots of users share the system resources of the same hosting server. This suggests that all web server constituents like CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs etc. are shared among the customers whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is normally made feasible by setting up separate accounts for the different users and setting given restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set so as to hinder the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Normally, shared web hosting users do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which primarily suggests that they do not have access to anything else on the web server aside from their own personal website hosting account. The web page hosting features that each account may use are determined by the hosting corporation that possesses the hosting server and by the particular webspace hosting plan. That predetermines the second essential question:

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

Hosting companies that furnish shared website hosting plans typically have various site hosting packages. Those plans contain different amounts of web space hosting features and specs, which actually set the restrictions that a hosting account will include. The customer may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting package will then define what limits the user's account will include, once created. The costs and the features of the web space hosting plans are defined by the specific web hosting company. Based on the politics of the distributor, the shared website hosting service falls into 2 categories - the free hosting solution and the popular shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to claim, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they actually are dependent on the marketing strategy of the given distributor and, of course, the demands of the given client.

What is the difference between the free of charge and the classic shared site hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they contain. Free web space hosting distributors are not able to maintain a big amount of hosting servers, therefore, they just host more customers on one server by lowering the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are supervised and dealt with appropriately, because the enormous amount of accounts may causer the web server to crash over and over again. Most of the free web site hosting firms, though, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's quite hard to stumble upon a free of charge web site hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting distributors usually offer free customer support even to the free web site hosting customers, since they want their sites to grow bigger so that they subsequently move to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. Such supplier, for example, is, which is one of the largest and oldest free website hosting firms in the world.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting vendors such as Blue Ribbon Hosting, for example, may afford to keep numerous web hosting servers and hence, they are able to provide much more feature-rich web hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the web space hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting package, though, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the concrete service which you're receiving. The first-rate web space hosting providers that have been around for quite some time are revealing their price tags and plan features in a realistic fashion, so that the client may familiar with what exactly he is receiving. Also, some of these provide a free bonus with the webspace hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free web design themes that are offered by 'Blue Ribbon Hosting'. Such web space hosting providers do look after their reputation and that's why if you pick them, you can be certain that you won't get swindled into purchasing a service that you cannot actually use.

What should I anticipate from a shared web space hosting solution?

The shared web page hosting solution is best for people who are looking to host a basic website, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web site hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business develops, your web site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a hosting supplier, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different distributor, which can cause web site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your web site. So, picking a webspace hosting provider such as 'Blue Ribbon Hosting', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of headaches in the future.
