Shared Web Hosting Description
The most fundamental and commonly used form of web hosting is the web hosting service. It constitutes a way to host your web page without having to know much about programming and running a web server. Furthermore, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for everybody. Still, what is web hosting?
What is web hosting?
As the name implies, the web hosting service is a type of service where multiple customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This suggests that all server constituents such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards etc. are apportioned among the clients whose accounts are on that same web server. This is usually made feasible by opening separate accounts for the separate clients and fixing specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are imposed so as to hinder the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Normally, web hosting customers do not have complete root access to the server's config files, which essentially means that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server apart from their very own web hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may utilize are determined by the web hosting company that possesses the web server and by the respective web hosting plan. That brings about the second essential question:
How are the shared hosting servers divided among the users?
Hosting companies that deliver web hosting services normally have different web hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse quotas of web hosting resources and specifications, which actually set the limits that a hosting plan will include. The customer may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what restrictions the customer's account will involve, once created. The prices and the features of the website hosting plans are set by the particular hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the vendor, the web hosting solution can be divided into two types - the free hosting service and the typical shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to tell, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they actually are determined by the marketing strategy of the specific corporation and, of course, the requirements of the given client.
What is the difference between the free of cost and the common web hosting solution?
Of course, the essential difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free web hosting providers are not able to keep a large amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more customers on one web hosting server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web hosting servers are supervised and administered appropriately, because the big amount of accounts may cause the server to crash over and over again. The majority of the free website hosting firms, though, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite hard to discover a free of charge website hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers typically provide free client support even to the free website hosting users, since they want their web portals to get bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web hosting plan, which offers more hosting resources. Such supplier, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free web hosting providers in the world.
On the other hand, established web hosting companies such as us, may afford to keep plenty of web servers and therefore, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, though, does not necessarily signify that this account has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the real service which you're receiving. In addition, we also provide a free bonus with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-cost web design templates. As a website hosting vendor, we do look after our good name and that's why if you go with us, you can be assured that you won't get beguiled into paying for an account that you cannot actually avail of.
What should I anticipate from a web hosting service?
The web hosting service is best for people who would like to host an average website, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful web hosting solution like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a private virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when selecting a website hosting provider, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up relocating your domain manually to a different supplier, which can cause website predicaments and even continued downtime for your web portal. If you choose DuoServers.ORG as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will spare you a lot of complications in the long run.
