Shared Web Hosting Explanation

The most elemental and frequently utilized sort of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web site without having to be much informed about programming and managing a hosting server. Additionally, it's also the cheapest type of website hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. However, what is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting solution is a kind of service where many clients share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This suggests that all hosting server ingredients like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are split among the users whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is mostly made viable by creating different accounts for the different clients and applying specific restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated in order to hinder the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overburdening. Usually, web hosting users do not have root access to the web server's config files, which essentially means that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server aside from their own personal website hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting corporation that possesses the web server and by the respective web hosting package. That results in the second important question:

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

Hosting providers that provide web hosting plans typically have diverse web hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse quotas of website hosting features and specifications, which in fact determine the limits that a website hosting plan will include. The customer may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The website hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the user's account will have, once created. The costs and the specifications of the website hosting plans are specified by the particular web hosting vendor. Depending on the politics of the firm, the web hosting service can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the regular shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" suppliers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to judge, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they really depend on the business policy of the specific vendor and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the common web hosting solution?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free web hosting corporations are not able to maintain a huge amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they just accommodate more clients on one web server by lowering the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the servers are supervised and maintained properly, since the enormous amount of accounts may make the server crash over and over again. Most of the free web hosting vendors, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to come across a free website hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers typically provide free customer support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their sites to get bigger so that they eventually move to a paid web hosting account, which includes more website hosting features. Such vendor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and oldest free website hosting firms in the world.

At the same time, traditional web hosting providers such as us, may afford to maintain plenty of web hosting servers and hence, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting account, however, does not automatically imply that this plan has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're receiving. In addition, we also provide a free extra with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of cost-free web templates. As a website hosting firm, we do look after our reputation and that is the reason why if you go with us, you can be certain that you won't get deluded into purchasing a plan that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for people who desire to host a basic website, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows, your web site will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful website hosting service like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when choosing a website hosting company, you should also reflect about scalability, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can cause website troubles and even prolonged downtime for your web page. If you go with Glomulser Web hosting as your website hosting company, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will save you lots of troubles in the long run.
