A description of web space hosting

The most fundamental and universally availed of type of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and administering a hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the cheapest form of webspace hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name designates, the shared site hosting service is a type of service where multiple clients share the system resources of the same hosting server. This means that all server components like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are divided among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is usually made accomplishable by creating separate accounts for the different clients and allocating certain limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are set in order to prevent the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Usually, shared site hosting clients do not have complete root access to the server's configuration files, which basically implies that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server but their own shared web hosting account. The site hosting features that each account may resort to are set by the hosting distributor that possesses the web hosting server and by the given web space hosting package. That brings about the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Hosting suppliers that distribute shared web space hosting accounts normally have different web space hosting plans. Those packages involve diverse amounts of web site hosting features and specs, which actually fix the limits that a web hosting account will include. The user may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The web site hosting package will then define what limits the client's account will involve, once created. The costs and the specifications of the site hosting packages are specified by the particular web hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the firm, the shared web hosting solution can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the classic shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to say, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they actually are determined by the business policy of the specific supplier and, of course, the demands of the particular user.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the regular shared web page hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free web site hosting firms are not able to maintain a large number of web servers, hence, they simply accommodate more users on one single server by reducing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only if the servers are kept under surveillance and administered properly, since the large amount of accounts may make the server crash frequently. Most of the free hosting corporations, however, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very tough to find a free of charge site hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors typically provide free client support even to the free web space hosting users, because they want their sites to get bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid web hosting plan, which includes more webspace hosting resources. One such firm, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free website hosting providers worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting firms like DuoServer.US, for example, are able to maintain numerous web servers and therefore, they are able to offer much more powerful webspace hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web site hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting solution, however, does not automatically mean that this solution has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the concrete service which you're receiving. The first-class web site hosting providers that have been around for quite some time are presenting their prices and package configurations in a realistic way, so that the customer may familiar with what exactly he is getting. Also, some of these offer a free extra with the webspace hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of charge-free web site templates that are supplied by 'DuoServer.US'. Such website hosting distributors do look after their good name and that is the reason why if you pick them, you can rest certain that you won't get hoaxed into buying a plan that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I anticipate from a shared site hosting solution?

The shared webspace hosting solution is best for people who want to host an average site, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful web site hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a web hosting company, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different vendor, which can bring about web site predicaments and even extended downtime for your web portal. Therefore, selecting a website hosting supplier such as 'DuoServer.US', which can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you a lot of complications in the future.
