Shared Hosting Description

The most archetypal and commonly used type of web hosting is the web hosting service. It's a means to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and operating a web server. Moreover, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name designates, the web hosting solution is a form of service where lots of customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This goes to say that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs and so on, are divided among the clients whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is mainly rendered attainable by creating different accounts for the separate users and fixing given limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated in order to hinder the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, web hosting users do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which basically goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the server aside from their own web hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may avail of are set by the hosting corporation that owns the web server and by the respective website hosting package. That leads up to the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the clients?

Web hosting suppliers that furnish web hosting solutions typically have different web hosting plans. Those plans contain diverse quotas of web hosting resources and specs, which in fact determine the limitations that a web hosting package will have. The customer may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will befit him best. The website hosting package will then define what restrictions the client's account will include, once created. The costs and the features of the hosting packages are chosen by the very hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the distributor, the web hosting solution can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the common shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to say, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they really depend on the marketing policy of the given company and, of course, the demands of the specific customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the regular web hosting solution?

Of course, the chief difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free website hosting providers are not capable of keeping an enormous amount of web servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on one single web server by reducing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the servers are kept under surveillance and dealt with properly, because the large number of accounts may cause the server to crash regularly. The majority of the free web hosting firms, though, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to stumble upon a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting suppliers normally provide free technical support even to the free hosting customers, because they want their web pages to expand so that they subsequently migrate to a paid web hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. One such corporation, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and eldest free website hosting firms in the world.

On the other hand, established web hosting vendors such as us, are able to maintain numerous servers and hence, we are able to provide much more feature-rich hosting packages. Of course, that affects the cost of the hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, however, does not necessarily signify that this account has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're receiving. Additionally, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-charge web page layouts. As a web hosting distributor, we do care about our reputation and that's why if you pick us, you can rest confident that you won't get beguiled into paying for an account that you cannot in fact use.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for those who want to host a standard website, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your website will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (aka a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when selecting a website hosting supplier, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can bring about site troubles and even extended downtime for your web page. If you pick White Internet Hosting as your website hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will save you lots of inconveniences in the long run.
