A description of site hosting

The most fundamental and commonly used form of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a way to host your web site without having to know much about programming and administering a web hosting server. Furthermore, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's in fact affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared web space hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name designates, the shared hosting solution is a form of service where multiple customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This means that all web hosting server ingredients like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that same web server. This is mostly made feasible by opening separate accounts for the separate clients and appointing given limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are assigned so as to restrain the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overburdening. Usually, shared site hosting users do not have root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which primarily denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web server beside their own personal web hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may utilize are set by the hosting vendor that owns the web server and by the respective web site hosting plan. That entails the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Web hosting suppliers that offer shared web hosting services usually have various web space hosting packages. Those plans include different amounts of website hosting resources and specs, which actually fix the limits that a website hosting plan will have. The customer may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The web site hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the client's account will include, once created. The prices and the features of the site hosting plans are fixed by the given hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the firm, the shared web page hosting solution falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the normal shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to assert, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they indeed depend on the marketing strategy of the particular provider and, of course, the needs of the given user.

What is the difference between the free of charge and the popular shared website hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free webspace hosting firms are not able to keep an immense amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more clients on one single web hosting server by reducing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are supervised and handled appropriately, because the big amount of accounts may cause the server to crash repeatedly. Most of the free web hosting providers, though, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite difficult to discover a free website hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors usually provide free technical support even to the free web hosting users, because they want their web portals to get bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid site hosting plan, which offers more web site hosting resources. One such company, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free hosting corporations worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting corporations like Lonex, for example, may afford to keep lots of web hosting servers and so, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich web site hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting solution, however, does not necessarily mean that this package has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're obtaining. The first-class web space hosting providers that have been around for quite some time are listing their prices and plan specifications in a realistic manner, so that the customer may familiar with what indeed he is obtaining. Also, some of them give a free extra with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of fee-free web site layouts that are supplied by 'Lonex'. Such site hosting providers do care about their reputation and that's why if you pick them, you can rest confident that you won't get hoaxed into buying a plan that you cannot in fact avail of.

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

The shared website hosting service is best for people who would like to host a standard web page, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared website hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful web site hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a website hosting distributor, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different company, which can bring about web site troubles and even continued downtime for your web page. So, selecting a webspace hosting vendor like 'Lonex', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will spare you a lot of predicaments in the future.
