What In Fact is Shared Web Hosting?
The most archetypal and universally used variety of web hosting is the shared hosting solution. It's a means to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and administrating a web server. Furthermore, it's also the most economical form of hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. However, what is shared hosting?
What is shared hosting?
As the name denotes, the shared hosting service is a form of service where plenty of clients share the system resources of the same hosting server. This implies that all web hosting server constituents like CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is mainly rendered attainable by creating separate accounts for the separate users and assigning given limits and quotas for each of them. Those limits are fixed so as to hinder the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Usually, shared hosting users do not have root-level access to the hosting server's config files, which primarily implies that they cannot access anything else on the web server apart from their very own website page hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may avail of are fixed by the hosting corporation that possesses the hosting server and by the particular web hosting package. That paves the way for the second essential question:
How are the shared hosting web servers shared among the users?
Web hosting corporations that supply shared hosting packages typically have diverse web hosting packages. Those packages offer diverse quotas of web hosting features and specifications, which in fact set the restrictions that a hosting package will include. The customer may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will fit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what limitations the user's account will have, once set up. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting plans are chosen by the actual hosting corporation. Based on the politics of the provider, the shared hosting service falls into two categories - the free hosting solution and the typical shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchandisers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to announce, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are determined by the business strategy of the particular vendor and, of course, the needs of the particular client.
What is the contrast between the free of charge and the typical shared hosting solution?
Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free web hosting suppliers are not capable of keeping an enormous amount of hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more clients on one web server by decreasing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the servers are supervised and tackled appropriately, because the big number of accounts may make the web server crash regularly. Most of the free website hosting corporations, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite difficult to stumble upon a free website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting vendors normally provide free client support even to the free web hosting users, because they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting features. Such corporation, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and oldest free website hosting companies worldwide.
At the same time, traditional shared hosting providers such as us, are able to maintain a lot of hosting servers and hence, we may afford to provide much more powerful website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting package, though, does not automatically denote that this account has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. Furthermore, we also offer a free bonus with the hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free web skins. As a web hosting provider, we do care about our reputation and that is the reason why if you choose us, you can be assured that you won't get fooled into buying a package that you cannot in fact avail of.
What should I anticipate from a shared hosting solution?
The shared hosting solution is best for people who are looking to host an average website, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful website hosting service such as a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (also known as a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when choosing a hosting vendor, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can bring about website problems and even prolonged downtime for your website. If you select RisesWebs as your website hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you a lot of difficulties in the future.
