A description of website hosting

The most principal and popularly availed of form of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your site without having to be much informed about programming and managing a web server. In addition, it's also the cheapest type of website hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Nonetheless, what is shared webspace hosting?

What is shared web hosting?

As the name designates, the shared hosting service is a form of service where many users share the system resources of the same server. This implies that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are apportioned among the users whose accounts are on that same web server. This is usually rendered accomplishable by creating separate accounts for the different customers and applying specific limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated so as to restrain the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Normally, shared web site hosting customers do not have complete root access to the web hosting server's config files, which primarily denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the web server beside their own website page hosting account. The web site hosting resources that each account may utilize are fixed by the web hosting vendor that possesses the hosting server and by the respective web site hosting package. That causes the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the customers?

Web hosting distributors that offer shared web page hosting packages usually have different webspace hosting plans. Those plans involve diverse amounts of site hosting features and specs, which actually determine the restrictions that a web space hosting package will have. The client may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The webspace hosting plan will then define what limits the client's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the specs of the webspace hosting plans are specified by the actual web hosting provider. Depending on the policy of the firm, the shared web site hosting service can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the regular shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to claim, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they really are dependent on the marketing strategy of the specific provider and, of course, the requirements of the particular user.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the regular shared hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they offer. Free web space hosting distributors are not capable of keeping a large amount of web hosting servers, hence, they merely accommodate more customers on a single server by decreasing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the servers are monitored and handled properly, because the immense amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash over and over again. The majority of the free webspace hosting suppliers, though, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very tough to stumble upon a free web hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting firms typically offer free customer support even to the free web site hosting customers, since they want their web pages to grow so that they subsequently migrate to a paid webspace hosting account, which includes more web site hosting resources. Such company, for instance, is, which is one of the largest and eldest free hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting providers like AIDA Host, for example, may afford to maintain a lot of web hosting servers and therefore, they may afford to provide much more feature-rich web space hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the webspace hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a site hosting solution, though, does not necessarily imply that this solution has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're obtaining. The best webspace hosting suppliers that have been around for quite a while are listing their price tags and plan specifications in a realistic way, so that the customer may be informed of what indeed he is getting. Additionally, some of them give a free bonus with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of fee-free web skins that are supplied by 'AIDA Host'. Such webspace hosting firms do care about their reputation and this is the reason why if you choose them, you can rest assured that you won't get hoaxed into purchasing a plan that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared web page hosting service is best for people who wish to host a basic website, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared website hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business gets bigger, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich web site hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual private web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a site hosting supplier, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different supplier, which can create web site problems and even continuous downtime for your site. Hence, selecting a web space hosting company such as 'AIDA Host', which can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will save you a lot of headaches in the future.
