An interpretation of website hosting

The most primary and commonly utilized sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a way to host your site without having to be much informed about programming and running a hosting server. What's more, it's also the most economical form of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is shared site hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name hints, the shared web hosting service is a sort of service where a lot of users share the system resources of one and the same server. This means that all web server ingredients such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are shared among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is usually rendered accomplishable by opening separate accounts for the different customers and applying certain restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limits are allocated in order to restrain the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overburdening. Typically, shared web site hosting clients do not have full root access to the hosting server's config files, which basically means that they cannot access anything else on the web server apart from their own personal shared hosting account. The web page hosting resources that each account may use are set by the hosting distributor that possesses the web server and by the given website hosting plan. That leads up to the second important question:

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

Hosting companies that distribute shared website hosting packages commonly have different web hosting packages. Those plans involve diverse amounts of webspace hosting resources and specs, which in fact fix the limits that a web site hosting account will have. The customer may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the user's account will have, once created. The costs and the specs of the webspace hosting packages are determined by the actual web hosting firm. Depending on the policy of the distributor, the shared hosting solution can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the typical shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to assert, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they actually depend on the marketing policy of the specific corporation and, of course, the requirements of the particular user.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the standard shared site hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they provide. Free web hosting firms are not able to keep a huge amount of web hosting servers, hence, they just accommodate more users on one single web server by decreasing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the hosting servers are kept under surveillance and handled appropriately, because the big number of accounts may causer the web server to crash over and over again. The majority of the free site hosting distributors, however, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's very tough to come across a free of cost web site hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting suppliers usually offer free customer support even to the free web hosting users, since they want their sites to grow so that they subsequently migrate to a paid site hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. Such provider, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free web hosting vendors in the world.

At the same time, established shared web hosting suppliers such as AIDA Host, for example, may afford to maintain multiple web servers and therefore, they are able to offer much more powerful webspace hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web site hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a webspace hosting package, though, does not automatically imply that this plan has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're getting. The top-notch web space hosting vendors that have been around for quite some time are displaying their prices and plan specs in an objective fashion, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is obtaining. Besides, some of these provide a free bonus with the site hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free-of-cost web page skins that are offered by 'AIDA Host'. Such web site hosting distributors do look after their reputation and that is the reason why if you select them, you can rest calm that you won't get deluded into buying a service that you cannot actually make use of.

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

The shared web space hosting service is best for people who desire to host a normal web portal, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared webspace hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more feature-rich hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual private web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a web space hosting company, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a separate company, which can create web site complications and even extended downtime for your web page. Therefore, picking a hosting supplier like 'AIDA Host', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you lots of hassles in the long run.
