A description of webspace hosting

The most elemental and regularly utilized type of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your web portal without having to be much informed about programming and handling a hosting server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive form of website hosting and it's indeed affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is shared web site hosting?

What is shared web site hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared webspace hosting service is a form of service where plenty of users share the resources of the same hosting server. This indicates that all web hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs and so on, are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is typically rendered viable by opening separate accounts for the separate customers and assigning specific limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are assigned so as to prevent the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overloading. Usually, shared website hosting users do not have complete root access to the server's configuration files, which basically suggests that they cannot access anything else on the web server aside from their own personal website page hosting account. The site hosting resources that each account may utilize are fixed by the web hosting company that owns the web server and by the particular site hosting package. That brings about the second important question:

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

Hosting vendors that supply shared webspace hosting accounts normally have diverse hosting packages. Those plans provide different quotas of hosting features and specs, which in fact set the limitations that a web hosting package will have. The client may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will befit him best. The web space hosting package will then determine what restrictions the customer's account will include, once created. The costs and the specs of the hosting packages are specified by the specific hosting company. Depending on the policy of the distributor, the shared web site hosting service can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the popular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they actually are determined by the business strategy of the specific company and, of course, the requirements of the specific client.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the typical shared website hosting solution?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free web hosting firms are not able to keep a great amount of web hosting servers, hence, they plainly host more customers on a single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web servers are kept under surveillance and administered properly, because the enormous number of accounts may make the server crash repeatedly. The majority of the free web hosting firms, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to find a free of charge webspace hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting distributors normally offer free technical support even to the free site hosting clients, because they want their web sites to expand so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid web site hosting plan, which offers more website hosting resources. Such vendor, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and oldest free website hosting corporations worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting firms such as Rai Hosting, for example, are able to maintain many web hosting servers and hence, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich web space hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a hosting account, however, does not automatically denote that this account has a finer quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. The best website hosting firms that have been around for a long time are presenting their prices and plan specifications in a realistic way, so that the client may acquainted with what in fact he is receiving. Moreover, some of them offer a free bonus with the web hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of charge-free web design skins that are provided by 'Rai Hosting'. Such webspace hosting companies do care about their good name and that is the reason why if you choose them, you can be assured that you won't get hoaxed into buying a package that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a shared web space hosting service?

The shared web page hosting service is best for individuals who want to host an average site, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared site hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows, your site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful 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 selecting a hosting vendor, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a different distributor, which can bring about site complications and even extended downtime for your website. Hence, selecting a hosting company like 'Rai Hosting', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will spare you lots of complications in the future.
