What In Fact is Shared Website Hosting?

The most elemental and widely utilized variety of web hosting is the web hosting service. It represents a way to host your web site without having to understand much about programming and managing a web hosting server.

As the name signifies, the web hosting service is a kind of service where many clients share the reserves of one and the same hosting server. This implies that all web server components such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are allotted among the customers whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is typically rendered feasible by creating separate accounts for the different users and setting given limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are assigned so as to restrain the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Typically, web hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files, which basically suggests that they cannot access anything else on the server but their very own hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may avail of are set by the hosting supplier that owns the server and by the respective hosting package. That paves the way for the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the users?

Web hosting vendors that furnish web hosting solutions commonly have different website hosting plans. Those plans provide different quotas of web hosting features and specs, which actually set the limits that a website hosting account will include. The client may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will fit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what limits the customer's account will involve, once created. The costs and the specs of the hosting plans are chosen by the actual web hosting firm. Depending on the policy of the vendor, the web hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting solution and the normal shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to announce, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are subject to the marketing policy of the specific firm and, of course, the demands of the given client.

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

Of course, the primary difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they include. Free web hosting providers are not capable of keeping an immense number of web hosting servers, therefore, they simply host more users on one web hosting server by reducing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are supervised and handled appropriately, since the huge number of accounts may make the hosting server crash frequently. The majority of the free website hosting providers, though, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to find a free of cost web hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting providers normally provide free technical support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their web sites to expand so that they eventually move to a paid website hosting plan, which includes more website hosting resources. Such firm, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free web hosting suppliers worldwide.

At the same time, established web hosting suppliers like us, are able to maintain numerous servers and so, we are able to offer much more feature-rich web hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting solution, though, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that matches the real service which you're obtaining. In addition, we also give a free extra with the website hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary web page themes. As a web hosting provider, we do care about our reputation and that is the reason why if you select us, you can rest confident that you won't get duped into paying for an account that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for people who want to host a basic web site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when picking a website hosting vendor, you should also consider scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can bring about site troubles and even continued downtime for your website. If you choose Bitsolt Hosting as your website hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can present 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.
