A description of hosting

The most principal and frequently used kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and managing a server. Furthermore, it's also the most inexpensive type of web hosting and it's in fact affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name implies, the shared website hosting service is a type of service where lots of customers share the resources of the same hosting server. This indicates that all hosting server components like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards etc. are allotted among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is mainly made attainable by setting up separate accounts for the different clients and fixing given restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated so as to prevent the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overloading. Usually, shared webspace hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which primarily signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server aside from their own hosting account. The web page hosting resources that each account may avail of are determined by the hosting supplier that owns the web server and by the given website hosting plan. That gives rise to the second vital question:

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

Web hosting companies that distribute shared website hosting plans normally have different web hosting plans. Those packages involve diverse quotas of site hosting resources and specs, which in fact set the limits that a website hosting package will have. The customer may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The web space hosting plan will then define what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the features of the site hosting packages are specified by the given hosting provider. Based on the policy of the company, the shared web site hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the typical shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" corporations 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 really are determined by the business policy of the particular provider and, of course, the requirements of the specific user.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the regular shared hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free site hosting providers are not able to keep an enormous amount of web hosting servers, hence, they just host more users on one single web server by reducing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are supervised and dealt with appropriately, since the big amount of accounts may make the server crash again and again. The majority of the free site hosting companies, though, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to stumble upon a free site hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting companies normally offer free client support even to the free web hosting clients, since they want their websites to enlarge so that they subsequently move to a paid website hosting plan, which includes more site hosting features. One such company, for example, is, which is among the largest and eldest free site hosting distributors in the world.

At the same time, established shared web hosting providers like Exclusive Hosting, for instance, may afford to maintain plenty of web hosting servers and so, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich site hosting packages. Of course, that influences the cost of the web space hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web space hosting solution, however, does not automatically signify that this solution has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're getting. The first-rate web hosting distributors that have been around for a long time are revealing their price tags and package features in an objective fashion, so that the client may familiar with what indeed he is getting. What's more, some of these give a free bonus with the webspace hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of charge-free website themes that are supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such webspace hosting firms do care about their good name and this is the reason why if you select them, you can be certain that you won't get swindled into paying for an account that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I expect from a shared web page hosting solution?

The shared webspace hosting solution is best for persons who are looking to host an average website, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared webspace hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your website will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful web space hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a website hosting company, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up migrating your domain name manually to a separate supplier, which can cause site problems and even continuous downtime for your site. So, selecting a site hosting distributor such as 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you a lot of frustrations in the long run.
