The most elemental and universally availed of type of web hosting is the shared hosting solution. It's a way to host your web site without having to be much informed about programming and managing a web hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the most inexpensive type of website hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. However, what is shared hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name suggests, the shared hosting service is a kind of service where a lot of customers share the resources of one and the same server. This indicates that all web server elements such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are apportioned among the clients whose accounts are on that same web server. This is usually rendered tenable by opening different accounts for the different customers and assigning certain restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are assigned in order to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Typically, shared hosting users do not have complete root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which primarily goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the server but their own personal website hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting corporation that possesses the hosting server and by the given web hosting package. That necessitates the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting web servers divided among the clients?

Hosting vendors that provide shared hosting plans usually have various website hosting packages. Those packages include different quotas of web hosting features and specifications, which actually define the limitations that a web hosting plan will have. The client may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what limitations the client's account will have, once created. The costs and the specifications of the website hosting plans are chosen by the actual web hosting firm. Based on the politics of the provider, the shared hosting solution can be divided into two types - the free hosting service and the standard shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they really are dependent on the business strategy of the specific vendor and, of course, the demands of the specific client.

What is the contrast between the free and the common shared hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they offer. Free hosting suppliers are not able to maintain a large number of web servers, hence, they simply accommodate more clients on one server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web servers are supervised and dealt with properly, since the great amount of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free website hosting providers, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very difficult to discover a free of charge web hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting corporations typically provide free technical support even to the free web hosting users, because they want their websites to get bigger so that they subsequently move to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. One such distributor, for example, is, which is one of the largest and oldest free hosting companies worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional shared hosting firms such as us, may afford to maintain multiple hosting servers and therefore, we may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting package, however, does not automatically signify that this service has a finer quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. Besides, we also give a free extra with the website hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free web site templates. As a web hosting corporation, we do care about our good name and that is the reason why if you go with us, you can be assured that you won't get duped into paying for a package that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I anticipate from a shared hosting service?

The shared hosting service is best for people who wish to host an average site, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a shared hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business gets bigger, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich web hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (aka a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a website hosting distributor, you should also think about scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different vendor, which can create site complications and even extended downtime for your web site. If you choose Hepsia.Co as your website hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will spare you lots of hassles in the long run.
