What Actually is Shared Hosting?

The most fundamental and commonly utilized kind of web hosting is the web hosting service. It represents a means to host your web site without having to know much about programming and administrating a hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the most economical type of web hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Nonetheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name indicates, the web hosting service is a sort of service where lots of users share the resources of the same hosting server. This signifies that all web hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards etc. are apportioned among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is normally made feasible by setting up different accounts for the separate users and assigning specific limitations and quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated so as to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overloading. Usually, web hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web server's configuration files, which basically goes to say that they cannot access anything else on the server apart from their own website hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may utilize are determined by the web hosting firm that possesses the server and by the given web hosting package. That gives rise to the second essential question:

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

Hosting distributors that furnish web hosting solutions normally have diverse web hosting plans. Those packages offer diverse quotas of hosting resources and specifications, which in fact define the limits that a web hosting plan will have. The customer may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what limits the client's account will have, once opened. The prices and the features of the website hosting plans are determined by the given hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the provider, the web hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the typical shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to announce, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are determined by the business tactics of the particular provider and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the classic web hosting service?

Of course, the chief difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they offer. Free hosting distributors are not capable of keeping a big amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they just host more clients on one single web hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are kept under surveillance and dealt with properly, since the immense number of accounts may make the web server crash regularly. Most of the free website hosting suppliers, however, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to find a free of cost web hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting providers usually provide free technical support even to the free hosting customers, because they want their web portals to grow so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web hosting plan, which includes more website hosting features. One such company, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free web hosting providers worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting companies like us, may afford to maintain multiple web hosting servers and hence, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting account, however, does not automatically signify that this account has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the real service which you're receiving. Also, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free-of-cost web design layouts. As a web hosting vendor, we do care about our good name and that is the reason why if you select us, you can be confident that you won't get deluded into paying for a service that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for persons who desire to host a basic web page, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business gets bigger, your web page will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (aka a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. Therefore, when choosing a website hosting supplier, you should also think about scalability, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different provider, which can cause web site troubles and even continued downtime for your site. If you select Lord Griffin IT Solutions as your hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will spare you lots of hassles in the long run.
