A definition of web hosting

The most archetypal and popularly used kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web site without having to know much about programming and managing a server. Furthermore, it's also the cheapest type of web space hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Still, what is shared hosting?

What is shared webspace hosting?

As the name suggests, the shared web page hosting service is a form of service where a lot of clients share the reserves of the same web server. This means that all hosting server components like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards and so on, are apportioned among the customers whose accounts are on that same web server. This is normally rendered tenable by creating separate accounts for the different users and allocating given restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limits are assigned in order to hinder the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overloading. Usually, shared webspace hosting clients do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which essentially suggests that they cannot access anything else on the server apart from their very own shared hosting account. The web page hosting resources that each account may use are determined by the hosting corporation that possesses the web server and by the particular site hosting plan. That predetermines the second vital question:

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

Web hosting providers that distribute shared hosting packages normally have diverse webspace hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse quotas of webspace hosting features and specs, which in fact fix the limitations that a site hosting account will have. The user may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The webspace hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the user's account will involve, once created. The costs and the features of the web space hosting packages are fixed by the specific web hosting firm. Based on the politics of the company, the shared web hosting solution can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the typical shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to declare, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they actually are dependent on the business strategy of the given vendor and, of course, the needs of the given client.

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

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they provide. Free website hosting firms are not capable of keeping a big number of web hosting servers, hence, they plainly host more clients on one single server by lowering the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web hosting servers are monitored and maintained appropriately, because the large amount of accounts may make the hosting server crash frequently. Most of the free web site hosting distributors, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to discover a free of cost webspace hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting providers normally provide free customer support even to the free web space hosting clients, since they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid website hosting account, which offers more web space hosting resources. One such provider, for instance, is, which is one of the biggest and eldest free webspace hosting distributors in the world.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting vendors like Exclusive Hosting, for example, may afford to maintain lots of web hosting servers and so, they are able to offer much more powerful web site hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting service, though, does not automatically denote that this solution has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the concrete service which you're getting. The first-rate website hosting companies that have been around for quite some time are exhibiting their price tags and plan configurations in an objective fashion, so that the customer may know what in fact he is receiving. Besides, some of these give a free bonus with the site hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of charge-free web page skins that are supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such web space hosting corporations do worry about their good name and that is the reason why if you choose them, you can be assured that you won't get beguiled into paying for an account that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I expect from a shared web hosting solution?

The shared web page hosting service is best for individuals who wish to host a basic web site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web space hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows, your site will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a website hosting distributor, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different vendor, which can bring about site predicaments and even extended downtime for your web page. Therefore, going with a hosting provider like 'Exclusive Hosting', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of hassles in the long run.
