The most principal and frequently used kind of web hosting is the hosting solution. It represents a means to host your web site without having to understand much about programming and handling a server. Additionally, it's also the most inexpensive type of web hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. Still, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name indicates, the hosting solution is a form of service where plenty of customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This implies that all web server constituents such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs etc. are allotted among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is mostly rendered achievable by creating different accounts for the different customers and assigning some limits and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are applied so as to hinder the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overburdening. Usually, hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which basically signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web server aside from their own website hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may use are fixed by the web hosting vendor that possesses the hosting server and by the given web hosting plan. That predetermines the second important question:

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

Web hosting suppliers that supply hosting solutions normally have diverse web hosting plans. Those plans contain different quotas of hosting features and specifications, which actually fix the restrictions that a website hosting package will include. The client may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The website hosting package will then define what limits the customer's account will have, once opened. The costs and the specifications of the web hosting plans are chosen by the given web hosting supplier. Based on the policy of the vendor, the hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting service and the regular shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" wholesalers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they indeed are subject to the marketing tactics of the specific distributor and, of course, the requirements of the particular user.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the normal hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they include. Free website hosting vendors are not able to maintain a large amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they just host more clients on one single web server by lowering the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web servers are monitored and handled appropriately, since the large number of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash frequently. Most of the free hosting companies, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very tough to find a free website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers commonly provide free client support even to the free website hosting users, because they want their web portals to get bigger so that they subsequently migrate to a paid web hosting plan, which offers more website hosting features. One such corporation, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and oldest free web hosting suppliers in the world.

On the other hand, traditional hosting distributors like us, are able to maintain numerous servers and so, we are able to offer much more feature-rich web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting package, however, does not necessarily imply that this solution has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the real service which you're getting. In addition, we also offer a free extra with the website hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of gratis web skins. As a website hosting corporation, we do worry about our good name and that's why if you pick us, you can be calm that you won't get swindled into paying for a solution that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a hosting solution?

The hosting service is best for those who desire to host an average site, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, however, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business enlarges, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (also known as a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a website hosting vendor, you should also consider scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a different vendor, which can cause site problems and even continued downtime for your site.
