An interpretation of hosting

The most fundamental and widely used type of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administrating a hosting server. Additionally, it's also the most inexpensive form of site hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. Nonetheless, what is shared web space hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared web site hosting solution is a form of service where numerous users share the system resources of one and the same server. This means that all web server ingredients such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mainly rendered possible by opening separate accounts for the different clients and applying certain limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are set in order to hinder the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Normally, shared hosting clients do not have root-level access to the server's config files, which basically signifies that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server aside from their very own shared web hosting account. The webspace hosting resources that each account may resort to are set by the hosting corporation that owns the web hosting server and by the respective webspace hosting plan. That predetermines the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the clients?

Web hosting suppliers that distribute shared web hosting accounts commonly have various web space hosting packages. Those packages include different quotas of website hosting features and specifications, which in fact define the restrictions that a web space hosting package will have. The customer may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The website hosting plan will then determine what limitations the user's account will have, once set up. The prices and the specs of the web site hosting plans are defined by the specific hosting distributor. Based on the politics of the vendor, the shared site hosting solution falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the common shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchandisers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed depend on the marketing tactics of the particular corporation and, of course, the demands of the given client.

What is the contrast between the free and the classic shared hosting solution?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they provide. Free web site hosting firms are not capable of maintaining a big amount of web servers, therefore, they just host more customers on a single hosting server by reducing the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are kept under surveillance and handled properly, since the enormous number of accounts may make the web hosting server crash repeatedly. The majority of the free site hosting companies, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite hard to find a free of cost web hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting vendors typically offer free customer support even to the free web space hosting customers, because they want their sites to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. One such firm, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free web hosting corporations worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting distributors like Simpli Safe Hosting, for instance, may afford to maintain lots of servers and as a result, they are able to offer much more powerful web site hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the web space hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a hosting solution, though, does not necessarily signify that this package has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the real service which you're getting. The first-class website hosting companies that have been around for a long time are displaying their prices and plan configurations in a realistic way, so that the client may familiar with what exactly he is getting. Besides, some of these offer a free extra with the hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free-of-charge templates that are offered by 'Simpli Safe Hosting'. Such website hosting providers do worry about their good name and this is the reason why if you select them, you can be calm that you won't get duped into buying a solution that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a shared web hosting solution?

The shared web space hosting solution is best for persons who are looking to host an average web site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web space hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful web site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a webspace hosting distributor, 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 supplier, which can create site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your web page. Hence, picking a web site hosting distributor like 'Simpli Safe Hosting', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will spare you lots of difficulties in the future.
