An interpretation of web space hosting

The most primary and widely used kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It constitutes a way to host your web site without having to know much about programming and managing a web hosting server. What's more, it's also the cheapest type of website hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. However, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared web page hosting service is a kind of service where lots of customers share the resources of one and the same server. This indicates that all web server components like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are distributed among the clients whose accounts are on that same server. This is mainly made achievable by opening different accounts for the different clients and allocating given restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are fixed in order to hinder the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overloading. Normally, shared site hosting users do not have full root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which essentially denotes that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server apart from their own personal hosting account. The web space hosting features that each account may resort to are set by the hosting firm that owns the hosting server and by the respective webspace hosting package. That brings on the second important question:

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

Hosting vendors that provide shared web site hosting solutions commonly have various webspace hosting plans. Those packages offer different amounts of hosting features and specs, which in fact determine the limits that a website hosting account will include. The customer may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The site hosting plan will then determine what limitations the customer's account will include, once opened. The costs and the features of the web site hosting packages are chosen by the given web hosting provider. Based on the politics of the company, the shared website hosting solution can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting service and the standard shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to announce, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are subject to the business policy of the specific firm and, of course, the needs of the particular client.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the standard shared web page hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they involve. Free web space hosting suppliers are not capable of maintaining an enormous amount of web hosting servers, hence, they just host more users on a single web server by lowering the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are supervised and handled appropriately, since the great number of accounts may make the server crash regularly. The majority of the free web hosting suppliers, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to find a free web hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting providers normally provide free client support even to the free site hosting clients, because they want their sites to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid hosting plan, which offers more web site hosting features. One such corporation, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free webspace hosting providers worldwide.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting suppliers like 2HostLive Networks, for example, are able to keep lots of servers and as a result, they are able to offer much more powerful site hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the webspace hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web site hosting service, though, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're getting. The top hosting distributors that have been around for quite some time are exhibiting their price tags and plan specs in an objective fashion, so that the client may know what exactly he is receiving. What's more, some of them give a free extra with the webspace hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-charge website layouts that are supplied by '2HostLive Networks'. Such webspace hosting corporations do look after their reputation and that is the reason why if you select them, you can be confident that you won't get deluded into paying for an account that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a shared web page hosting service?

The shared website hosting service is best for those who are looking to host a basic web portal, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared webspace hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business expands, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a website hosting distributor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a different company, which can cause web site troubles and even continuous downtime for your site. Hence, choosing a site hosting supplier such as '2HostLive Networks', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you lots of troubles in the future.
