A description of site hosting

The most basic and regularly availed of variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It's a way to host your web page without having to understand much about programming and handling a hosting server. Besides, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's indeed affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name implies, the shared web space hosting service is a type of service where multiple users share the resources of one and the same hosting server. This indicates that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is usually rendered feasible by opening different accounts for the different clients and allocating given limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are assigned so as to hinder the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared site hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web server's config files, which principally indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the server apart from their own personal shared hosting account. The site hosting resources that each account may use are fixed by the hosting provider that possesses the web server and by the respective web hosting package. That leads to the second essential question:

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

Web hosting distributors that distribute shared website hosting plans usually have different webspace hosting packages. Those plans contain different amounts of web hosting features and specs, which actually fix the restrictions that a site hosting plan will include. The user may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The website hosting plan will then determine what limitations the user's account will include, once opened. The prices and the features of the website hosting packages are defined by the given hosting company. Depending on the policy of the supplier, the shared web space hosting service can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the regular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they indeed depend on the marketing strategy of the given corporation and, of course, the demands of the given client.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the typical shared webspace hosting solution?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they include. Free web space hosting distributors are not capable of maintaining a big amount of web hosting servers, hence, they simply host more clients on a single web server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the servers are supervised and dealt with appropriately, since the immense number of accounts may make the web hosting server crash again and again. Most of the free hosting suppliers, however, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to come across a free of cost hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting firms normally provide free technical support even to the free hosting clients, since they want their web sites to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web space hosting plan, which offers more hosting features. Such company, for instance, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web site hosting vendors worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting companies like Real Tech Hosting, for example, are able to maintain plenty of web servers and so, they are able to provide much more powerful webspace hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web space hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a webspace hosting package, however, does not automatically signify that this package has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're obtaining. The best web hosting distributors that have been around for a long time are displaying their price tags and package configurations in an objective manner, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is receiving. In addition, some of these give a free extra with the site hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free-of-charge web design templates that are offered by 'Real Tech Hosting'. Such website hosting corporations do worry about their reputation and that is the reason why if you go with them, you can be calm that you won't get deceived into paying for a service that you cannot in fact avail of.

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

The shared website hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a normal website, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web site hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business enlarges, your site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful website hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a website hosting company, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a separate provider, which can bring about web site predicaments and even continued downtime for your website. So, going with a web hosting distributor such as 'Real Tech Hosting', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will save you lots of frustrations in the future.
