An explanation of website hosting

The most principal and universally availed of variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It's a means to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administrating a server. Moreover, it's also the most inexpensive type of web hosting and it's in fact affordable for anybody. However, what is shared web space hosting?

What is shared web site hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared site hosting solution is a type of service where multiple users share the system reserves of one and the same server. This indicates that all hosting server ingredients such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are apportioned among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mainly rendered viable by opening different accounts for the separate clients and assigning some limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are assigned in order to restrain the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Normally, shared web site hosting customers do not have root-level access to the server's configuration files, which essentially signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web server but their own personal shared website hosting account. The web space hosting resources that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting corporation that possesses the web server and by the particular web hosting plan. That necessitates the second vital question:

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

Web hosting suppliers that supply shared website hosting packages commonly have different webspace hosting packages. Those packages offer different quotas of hosting resources and specs, which in fact set the limits that a website hosting package will have. The user may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The web site hosting plan will then define what restrictions the client's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the features of the hosting packages are chosen by the very web hosting corporation. Based on the policy of the vendor, the shared hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the popular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are determined by the business policy of the particular vendor and, of course, the requirements of the specific client.

What is the distinction between the free and the regular shared web page hosting service?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free website hosting suppliers are not able to maintain an enormous number of servers, therefore, they just host more clients on a single web hosting server by lowering the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the hosting servers are monitored and maintained appropriately, because the huge amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free website hosting providers, though, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very difficult to stumble upon a free of charge web space hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting vendors commonly provide free customer support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their web sites to grow so that they eventually move to a paid web site hosting account, which offers more website hosting features. One such company, for example, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web hosting providers in the world.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting corporations such as Exclusive Hosting, for example, are able to keep a lot of web hosting servers and hence, they are able to offer much more powerful website hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web space hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a webspace hosting service, though, does not necessarily signify that this package has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. The best website hosting distributors that have been around for a long time are displaying their price tags and plan features in an objective fashion, so that the client may be informed of what in fact he is receiving. Also, some of them give a free extra with the web space hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-cost web themes that are furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such web hosting suppliers do look after their good name and that's why if you pick them, you can rest confident that you won't get duped into purchasing an account that you cannot actually make use of.

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

The shared web site hosting solution is best for individuals who would like to host a standard web portal, which is going to use a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich website hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a webspace hosting provider, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different supplier, which can cause site complications and even prolonged downtime for your website. Therefore, going with a web hosting vendor like 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you lots of annoyances in the long run.
