A description of site hosting

The most basic and commonly utilized type of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a means to host your web portal without having to be much informed about programming and handling a hosting server. Additionally, it's also the most economical type of webspace hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared webspace hosting?

What is shared website hosting?

As the name implies, the shared web hosting solution is a type of service where multiple customers share the system resources of the same web hosting server. This suggests that all web hosting server components like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are shared among the users whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is mostly made accomplishable by creating different accounts for the separate users and fixing certain limitations and quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are fixed so as to prevent the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, shared website hosting users do not have complete root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which principally signifies that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server beside their own personal shared hosting account. The web site hosting resources that each account may avail of are fixed by the web hosting vendor that owns the server and by the particular hosting package. That results in the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting web servers divided among the clients?

Web hosting corporations that supply shared site hosting services usually have different web hosting plans. Those packages provide diverse quotas of hosting resources and specs, which in fact determine the limitations that a hosting account will have. The customer may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The site hosting plan will then define what limits the user's account will include, once created. The prices and the specs of the web space hosting packages are fixed by the specific hosting company. Depending on the politics of the distributor, the shared web hosting service falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the popular shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to say, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are subject to the marketing strategy of the specific corporation and, of course, the needs of the specific customer.

What is the contrast between the free and the normal shared site hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they include. Free hosting companies are not capable of keeping an immense amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they simply accommodate more users on one web hosting server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the servers are kept under surveillance and dealt with properly, since the enormous number of accounts may make the web server crash regularly. Most of the free webspace hosting suppliers, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to come across a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting firms usually offer free customer support even to the free web space hosting customers, because they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they eventually migrate to a paid web site hosting package, which includes more hosting features. One such distributor, for example, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web space hosting suppliers in the world.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting providers like Universal-Hosting, for instance, are able to keep a lot of hosting servers and so, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web space hosting solution, though, does not automatically mean that this account has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the real service which you're obtaining. The first-class web hosting providers that have been around for quite a while are exhibiting their price tags and package features in a realistic way, so that the client may acquainted with what in fact he is getting. Furthermore, some of them give a free bonus with the web site hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free-of-cost site skins that are supplied by 'Universal-Hosting'. Such hosting corporations do worry about their good name and that's why if you pick them, you can rest certain that you won't get hoaxed into paying for a solution that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I expect from a shared web hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for people who would like to host an average web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared website hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business expands, your web site will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful web site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a web space hosting distributor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different distributor, which can bring about web site predicaments and even continuous downtime for your web site. Hence, going with a hosting distributor like 'Universal-Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will spare you lots of complications in the future.
