Shared Hosting Description
The most standard and widely used type of web hosting is the hosting service. It's a way to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and running a hosting server. What's more, it's also the most economical form of hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Nonetheless, what is hosting?
What is hosting?
As the name denotes, the hosting service is a type of service where multiple clients share the system resources of the same hosting server. This denotes that all hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are apportioned among the clients whose accounts are on that same server. This is mostly made viable by creating separate accounts for the different users and allocating given restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set so as to prevent the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Typically, hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web server's config files, which primarily goes to say that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server beside their own hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the respective hosting plan. That results in the second vital question:
How are the shared hosting servers shared among the customers?
Web hosting suppliers that furnish hosting solutions normally have diverse website hosting plans. Those plans contain diverse amounts of web hosting resources and specifications, which actually determine the limits that a web hosting package will have. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The web hosting plan will then define what restrictions the customer's account will have, once set up. The prices and the specifications of the website hosting plans are chosen by the very hosting provider. Based on the politics of the firm, the hosting service can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the popular shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they actually are determined by the marketing strategy of the given distributor and, of course, the demands of the particular user.
What is the distinction between the free and the normal hosting solution?
Of course, the major difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free website hosting firms are not able to maintain an immense amount of servers, hence, they simply host more customers on a single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the web servers are supervised and tackled properly, because the large amount of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash again and again. The majority of the free web hosting vendors, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to stumble upon a free web hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors typically offer free client support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their sites to enlarge so that they subsequently move to a paid web hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. Such vendor, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and eldest free web hosting vendors in the world.
On the other hand, traditional hosting distributors like us, may afford to maintain numerous web servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting solution, though, does not automatically imply that this solution has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the real service which you're getting. What's more, we also give a free extra with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-charge web page themes. As a web hosting provider, we do worry about our good name and this is the reason why if you go with us, you can rest confident that you won't get tricked into paying for a plan that you cannot actually make use of.
What should I expect from a hosting service?
The hosting service is best for persons who want to host a standard web site, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows bigger, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful website hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (aka a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a web hosting company, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can cause site problems and even extended downtime for your site. If you go with Creative Web Solutionz as your hosting company, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you lots of complications in the future.
