Shared Website Hosting Disclosed
The most archetypal and commonly utilized type of web hosting is the shared hosting solution. It's a means to host your website without having to know much about programming and managing a server. Moreover, it's also the cheapest form of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is shared hosting?
What is shared hosting?
As the name suggests, the shared hosting service is a type of service where multiple customers share the system reserves of one and the same server. This denotes that all web server components such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards and so on, are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that same server. This is mostly rendered accomplishable by setting up separate accounts for the separate clients and appointing specific limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are set in order to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overloading. Typically, shared hosting customers do not have root-level access to the hosting server's config files, which principally signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web server but their very own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may use are set by the web hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the particular website hosting plan. That results in the second essential question:
How are the shared web hosting servers shared among the customers?
Hosting suppliers that provide shared hosting packages usually have various web hosting plans. Those packages provide different amounts of web hosting features and specifications, which actually define the limitations that a web hosting package will have. 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 define what limits the client's account will involve, once created. The prices and the specifications of the hosting packages are set by the specific hosting distributor. Based on the policy of the distributor, the shared hosting service can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the regular shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchandisers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to state, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they actually are subject to the marketing tactics of the specific firm and, of course, the requirements of the specific client.
What is the difference between the free of cost and the regular shared hosting service?
Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they include. Free web hosting companies are not capable of maintaining an enormous number of hosting servers, hence, they merely accommodate more customers on one single web server by decreasing the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the servers are supervised and administered properly, since the enormous number of accounts may make the server crash time and time again. Most of the free web hosting vendors, though, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very difficult to come across a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors commonly provide free client support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their web pages to get bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting account, which includes more web hosting resources. Such company, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free web hosting vendors worldwide.
At the same time, traditional shared hosting vendors such as us, are able to keep many servers and therefore, we may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting plan, though, does not automatically mean that this plan has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're receiving. Additionally, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free-of-charge web skins. As a website hosting companie, we do care about our good name and that's why if you go with us, you can rest certain that you won't get hoaxed into purchasing a plan that you cannot actually use.
What should I anticipate from a shared hosting service?
The shared hosting service is best for people who are looking to host a basic web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows bigger, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich web hosting solution like a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (aka a virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when selecting a web hosting supplier, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a separate supplier, which can create web site complications and even extended downtime for your web page. If you choose GISSCO UNLIMITED as your web hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of troubles in the long run.
