Shared Website Hosting Description
The most standard and universally used variety of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web site without having to know much about programming and running a web hosting server. Additionally, it's also the most inexpensive form of web hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is web hosting?
What is web hosting?
As the name implies, the web hosting solution is a type of service where a lot of customers share the resources of the same web server. This signifies that all web hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards etc. are divided among the customers whose accounts are on that same web server. This is mostly rendered attainable by setting up different accounts for the separate users and assigning some limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are set so as to prevent the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overloading. Typically, web hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web server's config files, which primarily implies that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server aside from their own personal web hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may use are set by the web hosting corporation that owns the web server and by the given web hosting package. That gives rise to the second important question:
How are the shared hosting web servers divided among the clients?
Hosting companies that furnish web hosting accounts commonly have diverse website hosting plans. Those plans include different amounts of website hosting features and specs, which in fact define the limitations that a website hosting plan will include. The client may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what limits the user's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting packages are defined by the very hosting distributor. Based on the politics of the firm, the web hosting service falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the regular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchants 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 actually are subject to the business strategy of the specific corporation and, of course, the demands of the particular user.
What is the contrast between the free and the classic web hosting service?
Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free web hosting firms are not capable of keeping a large number of web hosting servers, therefore, they simply host more customers on one single web hosting server by reducing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the web hosting servers are supervised and handled appropriately, because the big amount of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash on a regular basis. Most of the free website hosting corporations, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's quite hard to stumble upon a free web hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting distributors normally offer free client support even to the free web hosting clients, since they want their websites to expand so that they subsequently move to a paid hosting account, which includes more web hosting resources. Such firm, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and eldest free web hosting firms in the world.
On the other hand, traditional web hosting firms like us, are able to keep numerous servers and so, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich web hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, though, does not necessarily mean that this solution has a finer quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're getting. Moreover, we also provide a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-charge web page skins. As a hosting corporation, we do care about our good name and this is the reason why if you pick us, you can rest confident that you won't get fooled into paying for a solution that you cannot in fact avail of.
What should I expect from a web hosting service?
The web hosting service is best for individuals who would like to host a standard web portal, which is going to use a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when selecting a hosting supplier, you should also consider scalability, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can cause website troubles and even extended downtime for your web page. If you select hostarabya as your web hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you a lot of hassles in the future.
