A description of web space hosting

The most archetypal and regularly used kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a way to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administering a web server. In addition to this, it's also the most inexpensive type of hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared web hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name hints, the shared hosting service is a kind of service where many users share the resources of the same hosting server. This goes to say that all server components such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs and so on, are distributed among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is mainly rendered achievable by opening different accounts for the separate customers and allocating certain restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are fixed in order to restrain the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, shared site hosting customers do not have root access to the web hosting server's config files, which primarily goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server aside from their own personal hosting account. The web site hosting resources that each account may resort to are determined by the web hosting corporation that owns the web hosting server and by the given website hosting plan. That predetermines the second essential question:

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

Hosting vendors that furnish shared web page hosting packages normally have various web hosting plans. Those packages offer different quotas of website hosting features and specifications, which in fact 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 deems will befit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what limits the user's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the features of the web site hosting plans are determined by the very web hosting vendor. Depending on the policy of the firm, the shared hosting service falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the standard shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to say, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are subject to the business policy of the specific corporation and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the difference between the free of charge and the classic shared webspace hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free hosting suppliers are not capable of maintaining a huge number of web hosting servers, therefore, they simply accommodate more users on a single web server by lowering the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web servers are monitored and maintained properly, since the big number of accounts may make the web hosting server crash again and again. The majority of the free web site hosting corporations, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very tough to stumble upon a free of charge hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting vendors normally offer free technical support even to the free web space hosting clients, since they want their web pages to get bigger so that they eventually migrate to a paid web site hosting account, which includes more hosting resources. Such firm, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and oldest free webspace hosting vendors worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting suppliers like Lonex, for instance, are able to maintain a lot of web servers and so, they may afford to offer much more powerful webspace hosting packages. Of course, that influences the cost of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web site hosting solution, though, does not necessarily signify that this package has a finer quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're receiving. The top site hosting companies that have been around for a long time are displaying their prices and package specs in an objective manner, so that the customer may acquainted with what in fact he is getting. Also, some of these offer a free extra with the website hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of charge-free site skins that are provided by 'Lonex'. Such web hosting vendors do care about their good name and that is the reason why if you go with them, you can be assured that you won't get duped into paying for a service that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I anticipate from a shared web hosting service?

The shared web hosting service is best for individuals who desire to host a normal web portal, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business enlarges, your site will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web site hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a webspace hosting supplier, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a separate supplier, which can create web site complications and even prolonged downtime for your website. Therefore, picking a web hosting company like 'Lonex', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will save you lots of problems in the long run.
