An explanation of site hosting

The most fundamental and frequently used variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a means to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and handling a hosting server. In addition, it's also the cheapest type of web space hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is shared web site hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name indicates, the shared web space hosting service is a form of service where many users share the system resources of one and the same web hosting server. This suggests that all web hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is mainly made feasible by creating different accounts for the different clients and applying specific limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are appointed so as to hinder the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Normally, shared web hosting clients do not have full root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which primarily suggests that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server apart from their own personal shared website hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may utilize are set by the web hosting vendor that possesses the web server and by the particular web space hosting plan. That paves the way for the second essential question:

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

Web hosting firms that distribute shared web space hosting solutions commonly have various website hosting packages. Those plans contain different amounts of web hosting features and specs, which actually determine the restrictions that a web space hosting plan will have. The client may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what limits the user's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the specifications of the site hosting packages are specified by the given hosting vendor. Depending on the politics of the supplier, the shared web space hosting service falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the typical shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to assert, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are dependent on the business strategy of the specific vendor and, of course, the demands of the specific client.

What is the difference between the free of charge and the normal shared webspace hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free site hosting suppliers are not able to maintain a big number of web servers, therefore, they merely host more users on one single web hosting server by lowering the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the web hosting servers are supervised and handled properly, because the big number of accounts may cause the server to crash again and again. The majority of the free web hosting firms, however, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's quite difficult to stumble upon a free web site hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting vendors commonly provide free technical support even to the free web hosting clients, because they want their websites to expand so that they subsequently move to a paid web hosting plan, which includes more website hosting resources. One such vendor, for example, is, which is among the biggest and eldest free website hosting companies worldwide.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting providers like Hosting Pro, for instance, are able to maintain numerous web servers and therefore, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a website hosting service, though, does not necessarily denote that this plan has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're receiving. The top-notch webspace hosting suppliers that have been around for a long time are listing their price tags and package features in an objective fashion, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is receiving. In addition, some of them give a free bonus with the web space hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free-of-cost design themes that are offered by 'Hosting Pro'. Such hosting firms do look after their reputation and that is the reason why if you choose them, you can rest calm that you won't get beguiled into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact avail of.

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

The shared web hosting solution is best for persons who are looking to host a standard web page, which is going to use a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web page hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business enlarges, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a website hosting provider, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different company, which can cause site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your website. Hence, going with a web site hosting supplier like 'Hosting Pro', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of troubles in the future.
