Shared Web Hosting Uncovered
The most principal and universally used kind of web hosting is the hosting service. It's a means to host your web site without having to know much about programming and handling a hosting server. Besides, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Still, what is hosting?
What is hosting?
As the name indicates, the hosting solution is a sort of service where numerous clients share the system reserves of one and the same server. This indicates that all web hosting server constituents like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is normally rendered viable by setting up different accounts for the separate clients and allocating some limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are fixed so as to hinder the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overloading. Normally, hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the web server's config files, which primarily goes to say that they cannot access anything else on the web server apart from their own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may use are determined by the web hosting distributor that possesses the hosting server and by the given web hosting package. That necessitates the second important question:
How are the shared hosting servers shared among the customers?
Web hosting vendors that offer hosting packages commonly have different hosting plans. Those packages offer different amounts of web hosting features and specifications, which in fact set the restrictions that a website hosting plan will have. The customer may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The hosting package will then determine what limitations the user's account will have, once set up. The prices and the features of the hosting packages are specified by the actual web hosting provider. Based on the politics of the corporation, the hosting solution can be divided into two categories - the free hosting service and the normal shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to announce, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they actually depend on the marketing strategy of the specific corporation and, of course, the demands of the particular user.
What is the difference between the free of charge and the classic hosting service?
Of course, the principal difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free hosting providers are not capable of keeping an immense number of hosting servers, therefore, they simply accommodate more customers on one server by reducing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the web servers are supervised and maintained properly, since the big amount of accounts may cause the server to crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free web hosting companies, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's quite tough to find a free website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting distributors commonly offer free technical support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their web portals to grow so that they eventually move to a paid website hosting package, which offers more hosting features. One such supplier, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and eldest free website hosting corporations worldwide.
At the same time, traditional hosting distributors like us, may afford to maintain a lot of hosting servers and so, we are able to provide much more powerful hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, however, does not automatically imply that this plan has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're receiving. What's more, we also provide a free extra with the hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of gratis design layouts. As a website hosting provider, we do look after our reputation and that's why if you select us, you can rest assured that you won't get tricked into purchasing a plan that you cannot actually make use of.
What should I anticipate from a hosting service?
The hosting service is best for those who desire to host an average web portal, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, however, that a hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business expands, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful website hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a website hosting company, you should also think about scalability, otherwise you might end up moving your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can create website predicaments and even extended downtime for your web page. If you select Web Host EZ as your web hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will save you a lot of problems in the future.
