What In Fact is Shared Web Hosting?
The most fundamental and widely utilized type of web hosting is the web hosting service. It constitutes a way to host your web site without having to be much informed about programming and handling a server. In addition, it's also the most inexpensive type of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?
What is web hosting?
As the name denotes, the web hosting solution is a type of service where many clients share the resources of the same hosting server. This indicates that all web hosting server ingredients like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are distributed among the customers whose accounts are on that very same web hosting server. This is typically rendered attainable by creating different accounts for the different users and applying specific limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limits are appointed so as to prevent the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overloading. Typically, web hosting clients do not have root access to the web server's config files, which primarily denotes that they cannot access anything else on the server apart from their very own web hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may avail of are determined by the web hosting firm that possesses the web hosting server and by the respective website hosting package. That entails the second important question:
How are the shared web hosting servers divided among the customers?
Web hosting distributors that furnish web hosting plans typically have diverse hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse quotas of web hosting resources and specifications, which in fact define the restrictions that a hosting account will include. The customer may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will befit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what restrictions the client's account will involve, once set up. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting packages are set by the actual web hosting company. Depending on the policy of the supplier, the web hosting service can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting solution and the regular shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to claim, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are subject to the marketing tactics of the specific provider and, of course, the needs of the given customer.
What is the contrast between the free of cost and the common web hosting solution?
Of course, the primary difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free website hosting distributors are not able to maintain a large number of hosting servers, hence, they merely accommodate more users on one hosting server by reducing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the hosting servers are kept under surveillance and tackled properly, because the immense amount of accounts may make the server crash again and again. Most of the free web hosting corporations, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to find a free of charge website hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting firms normally offer free customer support even to the free website hosting clients, because they want their web portals to enlarge so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which includes more web hosting resources. Such firm, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free hosting providers in the world.
On the other hand, traditional web hosting suppliers like us, may afford to keep multiple servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting account, however, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're obtaining. In addition, we also give a free extra with the web hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of gratis web page templates. As a website hosting corporation, we do look after our reputation and this is the reason why if you pick us, you can be assured that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact use.
What should I anticipate from a web hosting service?
The web hosting service is best for those who desire to host a standard site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business gets bigger, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (a.k.a. a private virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. So, when picking a hosting supplier, you should also consider scalability, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain manually to a different vendor, which can bring about web site troubles and even continued downtime for your web portal. If you select CIS Hosting as your hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you lots of complications in the long run.
