Shared Web Hosting Explanation
The most standard and universally utilized variety of web hosting is the hosting solution. It's a way to host your web page without having to know much about programming and administering a web hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the most inexpensive form of hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. However, what is hosting?
What is hosting?
As the name designates, the hosting service is a sort of service where many clients share the reserves of the same web hosting server. This signifies that all web server components such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards etc. are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that very same server. This is normally rendered possible by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and allocating some limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are appointed in order to hinder the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overloading. Typically, hosting users do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which primarily indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server apart from their own website hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the particular web hosting package. That brings on the second vital question:
How are the shared hosting servers divided among the customers?
Hosting firms that offer hosting plans typically have various website hosting packages. Those plans contain different quotas of web hosting features and specifications, which in fact determine the limitations that a web hosting package will have. The client may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what limits the user's account will have, once created. The prices and the specs of the website hosting plans are fixed by the very hosting firm. Depending on the politics of the vendor, the hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the popular shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to tell, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they really are dependent on the marketing strategy of the particular vendor and, of course, the requirements of the particular client.
What is the contrast between the free of charge and the common hosting service?
Of course, the essential difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free website hosting corporations are not able to keep an immense number of web hosting servers, therefore, they simply host more clients on a single web server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the hosting servers are kept under surveillance and administered appropriately, since the large number of accounts may make the server crash repeatedly. The majority of the free website hosting firms, however, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to find a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers usually provide free technical support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their sites to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid web hosting package, which offers more hosting resources. Such provider, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and oldest free web hosting suppliers worldwide.
At the same time, established hosting companies like us, are able to keep many servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting package, though, does not automatically denote that this package has a finer quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the real service which you're getting. Besides, we also offer a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of charge-free templates. As a website hosting vendor, we do care about our reputation and that is the reason why if you go with us, you can be assured that you won't get deluded into buying a plan that you cannot actually avail of.
What should I expect from a hosting service?
The hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a standard website, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a web hosting provider, you should also think about scalability, otherwise you might end up moving your domain manually to a separate supplier, which can bring about web site complications and even continuous downtime for your web portal. If you choose YASPE as your web hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will save you a lot of headaches in the future.
