A definition of site hosting

The most principal and universally availed of variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and running a hosting server. Furthermore, it's also the most inexpensive form of web site hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. However, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name indicates, the shared web hosting solution is a form of service where plenty of users share the system reserves of one and the same server. This signifies that all server ingredients like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are split among the users whose accounts are on that same web server. This is usually rendered attainable by setting up separate accounts for the different users and allocating certain limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are fixed in order to hinder the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overloading. Normally, shared hosting clients do not have full root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which basically means that they cannot access anything else on the server apart from their own shared hosting account. The web site hosting resources that each account may utilize are fixed by the web hosting company that owns the web server and by the given website hosting plan. That necessitates the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Web hosting vendors that provide shared hosting solutions usually have different webspace hosting packages. Those packages involve different amounts of hosting features and specs, which actually set the limitations that a webspace hosting plan will have. The customer may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what limits the user's account will include, once set up. The costs and the specifications of the hosting plans are defined by the particular web hosting company. Depending on the politics of the company, the shared hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the common shared service, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are subject to the business policy of the specific provider and, of course, the demands of the given client.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the normal shared website hosting service?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free web site hosting distributors are not capable of keeping a great amount of hosting servers, hence, they merely accommodate more clients on one web server by reducing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the servers are monitored and administered appropriately, because the huge number of accounts may make the server crash frequently. Most of the free site hosting suppliers, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's quite difficult to find a free site hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting companies typically offer free customer support even to the free web hosting users, since they want their web sites to get bigger so that they eventually move to a paid hosting package, which includes more web site hosting features. One such corporation, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free hosting suppliers in the world.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting vendors like Exclusive Hosting, for instance, may afford to maintain plenty of hosting servers and so, they may afford to offer much more powerful web site hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the web space hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a hosting package, however, does not necessarily imply that this solution has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. The best web space hosting companies that have been around for quite some time are presenting their price tags and package specifications in a realistic fashion, so that the client may familiar with what in fact he is getting. What's more, some of these provide a free bonus with the hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-charge web page templates that are furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such website hosting vendors do worry about their reputation and that is the reason why if you choose them, you can be confident that you won't get swindled into paying for a service that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I expect from a shared web page hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for persons who want to host a standard web site, which is going to use a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web space hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich site hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a hosting distributor, 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 company, which can bring about web site complications and even continuous downtime for your web page. Hence, choosing a web space hosting provider such as 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you a lot of headaches in the future.
