An explanation of website hosting

The most principal and universally used form of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and handling a hosting server. Besides, it's also the most economical form of web page hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared site hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name indicates, the shared web hosting service is a sort of service where numerous clients share the system reserves of the same server. This indicates that all hosting server elements such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs etc. are distributed among the clients whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is mainly made feasible by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and appointing given limits and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are fixed in order to prevent the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Typically, shared webspace hosting users do not have full root access to the server's config files, which essentially signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server apart from their own personal shared hosting account. The web site hosting features that each account may utilize are determined by the web hosting firm that owns the web server and by the particular website hosting package. That necessitates the second important question:

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

Web hosting firms that supply shared web site hosting packages normally have various site hosting plans. Those plans contain different quotas of website hosting resources and specs, which actually define the restrictions that a web hosting plan will have. The client may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The site hosting plan will then define what limitations the client's account will include, once created. The costs and the specifications of the web hosting packages are fixed by the specific web hosting supplier. Based on the policy of the company, the shared web page hosting service falls into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the standard shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to declare, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are determined by the business strategy of the given supplier and, of course, the needs of the specific customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the common shared site hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they include. Free web hosting distributors are not capable of keeping a great number of hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more customers on a single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web servers are supervised and administered appropriately, because the great number of accounts may make the web hosting server crash frequently. Most of the free website hosting corporations, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to discover a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting corporations usually provide free client support even to the free web space hosting users, since they want their web portals to enlarge so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web hosting account, which includes more webspace hosting resources. One such vendor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and eldest free web space hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting companies such as NTC Hosting, for example, may afford to keep lots of servers and hence, they may afford to provide much more powerful web site hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web space hosting account, though, does not necessarily mean that this service has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the actual service which you're getting. The first-class web hosting vendors that have been around for quite a while are exhibiting their prices and plan specs in a realistic way, so that the customer may familiar with what in fact he is obtaining. Moreover, some of these provide a free bonus with the web space hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of cost-free design themes that are supplied by 'NTC Hosting'. Such website hosting vendors do look after their good name and that's why if you choose them, you can be confident that you won't get hoaxed into purchasing a plan that you cannot in fact avail of.

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

The shared hosting solution is best for persons who want to host a standard web portal, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared webspace hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows bigger, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more powerful website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a web hosting supplier, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different company, which can bring about site complications and even extended downtime for your site. Hence, choosing a site hosting supplier like 'NTC Hosting', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you a lot of nuisances in the long run.
