An explanation of hosting

The most basic and commonly availed of variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your website without having to know much about programming and handling a web hosting server. In addition, it's also the most inexpensive type of site hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. However, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name designates, the shared website hosting solution is a kind of service where plenty of users share the reserves of the same web server. This means that all hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs and so on, are apportioned among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is usually made accomplishable by setting up separate accounts for the different clients and imposing some limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated so as to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overloading. Normally, shared webspace hosting users do not have complete root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files, which primarily indicates that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server aside from their own shared website hosting account. The site hosting resources that each account may use are set by the hosting supplier that owns the hosting server and by the particular web hosting package. That results in the second important question:

How are the shared hosting web servers shared among the users?

Web hosting vendors that distribute shared website hosting plans typically have various website hosting packages. Those plans involve diverse amounts of web space hosting features and specs, which in fact define the limits that a web space hosting plan will include. The client may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what limits the user's account will have, once set up. The costs and the features of the web hosting packages are defined by the very web hosting vendor. Depending on the politics of the distributor, the shared hosting service can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the typical shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" suppliers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they indeed depend on the marketing policy of the particular vendor and, of course, the requirements of the specific client.

What is the difference between the free and the standard shared hosting service?

Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they offer. Free site hosting suppliers are not capable of maintaining a big amount of web servers, hence, they just host more customers on one web server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are kept under surveillance and tackled properly, since the enormous number of accounts may make the server crash over and over again. Most of the free webspace hosting vendors, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's quite tough to come across a free of cost hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers typically provide free customer support even to the free hosting users, because they want their web portals to expand so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web space hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. One such vendor, for example, is, which is among the largest and oldest free site hosting corporations in the world.

On the other hand, traditional shared web hosting distributors like SupremeServer, for example, may afford to maintain multiple hosting servers and therefore, they may afford to provide much more feature-rich webspace hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web site hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web site hosting plan, though, does not necessarily mean that this account has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're obtaining. The top-notch hosting vendors that have been around for quite a while are listing their prices and plan configurations in an objective fashion, so that the client may be informed of what indeed he is getting. In addition, some of them provide a free extra with the web space hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free-of-cost skins that are furnished by 'SupremeServer'. Such web space hosting distributors do look after their reputation and that's why if you go with them, you can be calm that you won't get duped into buying a service that you cannot in fact use.

What should I expect from a shared hosting service?

The shared hosting service is best for those who are looking to host an average web portal, which is going to use a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web site hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business gets bigger, your web page will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful web site hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a web site hosting company, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different vendor, which can cause website problems and even continuous downtime for your web portal. So, picking a website hosting provider such as 'SupremeServer', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of difficulties in the long run.
