A definition of web hosting

The most standard and popularly utilized type of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your web site without having to know much about programming and managing a hosting server. In addition, it's also the cheapest form of web hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared webspace hosting?

What is shared website hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared web page hosting service is a kind of service where multiple clients share the resources of one and the same hosting server. This indicates that all server components like CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs etc. are split among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is mostly rendered tenable by opening separate accounts for the different customers and allocating specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated so as to hinder the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overloading. Usually, shared website hosting customers do not have complete root access to the web server's configuration files, which essentially denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server beside their very own hosting account. The web page hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the hosting company that possesses the server and by the respective web site hosting package. That brings on the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers split among the clients?

Web hosting firms that provide shared webspace hosting plans usually have diverse hosting packages. Those plans contain diverse amounts of web hosting resources and specifications, which in fact define the restrictions that a webspace hosting account will have. The client may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The web site hosting plan will then define what restrictions the customer's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the specifications of the web space hosting plans are chosen by the particular hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the vendor, the shared hosting solution can be divided into two groups - the free hosting service and the standard shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to announce, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are dependent on the business policy of the specific firm and, of course, the requirements of the given user.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the typical shared web page hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free web space hosting firms are not capable of keeping an immense number of web servers, hence, they just host more users on a single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web hosting servers are monitored and handled properly, because the huge amount of accounts may make the web server crash regularly. The majority of the free web hosting providers, though, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to stumble upon a free of charge site hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers commonly provide free client support even to the free website hosting users, since they want their web pages to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid hosting account, which includes more website hosting features. Such vendor, for instance, is, which is one of the largest and eldest free web space hosting vendors in the world.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting providers such as Moore Hosting, for example, may afford to keep many web hosting servers and as a result, they are able to offer much more feature-rich web space hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web site hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting account, however, does not necessarily imply that this service has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're receiving. The best site hosting companies that have been around for quite some time are revealing their price tags and package specs in a realistic manner, so that the client may know what exactly he is receiving. Also, some of these offer a free bonus with the webspace hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of cost-free templates that are offered by 'Moore Hosting'. Such webspace hosting firms do look after their reputation and that's why if you choose them, you can rest assured that you won't get deceived into buying a service that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I anticipate from a shared webspace hosting service?

The shared website hosting service is best for individuals who want to host an average web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared web page hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows bigger, your web page will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich web site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a web hosting provider, you should also consider 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 cause site complications and even continuous downtime for your website. Therefore, selecting a site hosting vendor like 'Moore Hosting', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will spare you lots of headaches in the long run.
