An interpretation of site hosting

The most standard and universally used form of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a way to host your site without having to be much informed about programming and administering a web hosting server. What's more, it's also the cheapest type of web page hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. However, what is shared web hosting?

What is shared web site hosting?

As the name hints, the shared web hosting solution is a sort of service where plenty of customers share the system reserves of the same server. This goes to say that all server elements such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are apportioned among the customers whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is normally rendered viable by setting up separate accounts for the different clients and appointing some limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated so as to restrain the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared web page hosting users do not have complete root-level access to the web server's configuration files, which basically goes to say that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server apart from their own personal shared hosting account. The site hosting features that each account may resort to are determined by the hosting supplier that possesses the hosting server and by the particular site hosting package. That paves the way for the second vital question:

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

Hosting distributors that distribute shared hosting accounts typically have diverse web space hosting plans. Those plans involve different quotas of site hosting features and specs, which in fact define the restrictions that a web space hosting account will have. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what limits the client's account will include, once created. The prices and the specs of the hosting plans are set by the specific web hosting firm. Based on the politics of the provider, the shared hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the standard shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to state, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they actually are subject to the marketing policy of the particular company and, of course, the demands of the given user.

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

Of course, the essential difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they contain. Free web hosting suppliers are not able to keep a great amount of hosting servers, hence, they plainly host more users on one single web server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are kept under surveillance and dealt with appropriately, since the immense amount of accounts may make the hosting server crash frequently. The majority of the free website hosting providers, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite tough to discover a free of charge web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting firms typically provide free customer support even to the free hosting customers, since they want their web pages to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid hosting plan, which includes more web hosting features. One such firm, for instance, is, which is among the biggest and oldest free site hosting corporations worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting companies like SPT Web Hosting, for example, are able to keep plenty of web hosting servers and hence, they may afford to provide much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web site hosting service, though, does not automatically signify that this account has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the real service which you're obtaining. The first-rate webspace hosting companies that have been around for a long time are presenting their price tags and package specs in a realistic way, so that the customer may be aware of what exactly he is receiving. Besides, some of them give a free extra with the site hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of fee-free web site layouts that are furnished by 'SPT Web Hosting'. Such web site hosting companies do care about their good name and this is the reason why if you go with them, you can be calm that you won't get swindled into paying for a plan that you cannot actually use.

What should I expect from a shared hosting service?

The shared web site hosting solution is best for individuals who want to host an average website, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared website hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows bigger, your web portal will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more feature-rich web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a hosting company, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different vendor, which can cause website problems and even continued downtime for your web portal. Therefore, selecting a web hosting distributor such as 'SPT Web Hosting', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will save you lots of hassles in the long run.
