A description of website hosting

The most standard and universally utilized kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a means to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and managing a server. Besides, it's also the cheapest type of webspace hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Nonetheless, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared web hosting?

As the name indicates, the shared web hosting solution is a kind of service where lots of users share the system reserves of the same hosting server. This suggests that all server elements like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are allotted among the customers whose accounts are on that same web server. This is normally made viable by setting up different accounts for the separate customers and applying certain limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are fixed so as to hinder the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overburdening. Typically, shared webspace hosting users do not have complete root-level access to the web server's configuration files, which basically implies that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server aside from their very own website hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may resort to are determined by the hosting firm that owns the hosting server and by the particular web site hosting package. That leads to the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the users?

Hosting suppliers that distribute shared website hosting packages usually have diverse hosting plans. Those packages include different quotas of webspace hosting features and specs, which in fact define the limits that a webspace hosting plan will include. The customer may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will fit him best. The site hosting plan will then determine what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting plans are defined by the particular hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the vendor, the shared hosting service falls into two types - the free hosting service and the normal shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they actually are subject to the marketing policy of the particular corporation and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the typical shared web space hosting solution?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they include. Free hosting firms are not able to keep a huge amount of servers, therefore, they merely host more customers on one server by lowering the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are monitored and handled appropriately, because the immense amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash on a regular basis. Most of the free web hosting providers, though, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite tough to discover a free of charge website hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers commonly offer free technical support even to the free webspace hosting customers, since they want their sites to expand so that they eventually move to a paid site hosting plan, which offers more web site hosting features. Such corporation, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free hosting companies worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting suppliers like NTC Hosting, for instance, are able to maintain many web hosting servers and as a result, they are able to offer much more powerful hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web space hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a webspace hosting solution, though, does not automatically signify that this account has a better quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're obtaining. The first-rate webspace hosting companies that have been around for a long time are presenting their prices and package specs in an objective manner, so that the customer may be aware of what in fact he is obtaining. Furthermore, some of these give a free extra with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free templates that are provided by 'NTC Hosting'. Such web hosting firms do worry about their reputation and that's why if you choose them, you can be confident that you won't get deluded into purchasing an account that you cannot actually use.

What should I expect from a shared website hosting solution?

The shared hosting service is best for individuals who would like to host a normal website, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared website hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows, your site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a webspace hosting supplier, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up moving your domain name manually to a separate company, which can create web site complications and even extended downtime for your web page. So, selecting a web hosting distributor like 'NTC Hosting', which can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you lots of inconveniences in the long run.
