What Precisely is Shared Hosting?

The most fundamental and popularly availed of type of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your site without having to be much informed about programming and administering a hosting server. In addition, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name designates, the web hosting service is a kind of service where numerous users share the system resources of the same web hosting server. This implies that all hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are split among the users whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is mainly made achievable by creating different accounts for the separate customers and imposing some restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are assigned so as to restrain the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Normally, web hosting users do not have root access to the server's config files, which essentially signifies that they cannot access anything else on the web server apart from their own personal hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may avail of are determined by the web hosting company that possesses the web hosting server and by the particular website hosting plan. That causes the second vital question:

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

Hosting companies that distribute web hosting accounts normally have diverse website hosting plans. Those packages involve different amounts of web hosting resources and specifications, which in fact define the limitations that a website hosting account will have. The user may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what limits the user's account will involve, once created. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting packages are set by the specific hosting distributor. Based on the policy of the supplier, the web hosting service can be divided into two types - the free hosting service and the normal shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to tell, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they actually depend on the business tactics of the particular firm and, of course, the needs of the particular user.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the normal web hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they contain. Free web hosting distributors are not capable of keeping a big amount of web servers, hence, they just host more customers on one single server by reducing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web servers are supervised and tackled properly, because the large number of accounts may cause the server to crash over and over again. Most of the free website hosting providers, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite difficult to find a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting firms typically provide free technical support even to the free web hosting customers, since they want their websites to enlarge so that they eventually move to a paid hosting plan, which offers more website hosting resources. Such vendor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and oldest free website hosting vendors in the world.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting firms such as us, are able to keep multiple web hosting servers and so, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting plan, however, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the real service which you're receiving. In addition, we also offer a free extra with the hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of cost-free themes. As a website hosting corporation, we do look after our reputation and that is the reason why if you choose us, you can be confident that you won't get swindled into buying a solution that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a basic web page, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business expands, your web site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich web hosting service like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting.

Therefore, when selecting a web hosting company, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a different distributor, which can bring about site complications and even continuous downtime for your website. If you go with SIANA HOSTING as your web hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will spare you a lot of frustrations in the future.
