A description of webspace hosting

The most elemental and widely utilized variety of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your site without having to understand much about programming and managing a web hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the most inexpensive type of hosting and it's in fact affordable for everybody. Nonetheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared site hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared web site hosting solution is a kind of service where many clients share the resources of one and the same hosting server. This suggests that all web hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are split among the users whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is normally rendered tenable by creating different accounts for the separate users and appointing specific limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are imposed in order to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overloading. Typically, shared site hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the server's configuration files, which basically denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server apart from their own shared website hosting account. The web page hosting features that each account may use are set by the hosting supplier that possesses the server and by the respective web site hosting package. That leads up to the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Web hosting firms that furnish shared web site hosting accounts normally have different web hosting plans. Those plans involve diverse quotas of webspace hosting resources and specs, which actually set the restrictions that a hosting account will include. The client may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The website hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the user's account will have, once created. The costs and the specifications of the site hosting plans are chosen by the specific web hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the distributor, the shared web page hosting solution falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the common shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" vendors 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 actually are determined by the marketing strategy of the given firm and, of course, the demands of the particular client.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the typical shared web space hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free web site hosting providers are not capable of keeping a large amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they simply host more customers on one web hosting server by decreasing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are monitored and maintained properly, since the big number of accounts may make the web server crash frequently. Most of the free web hosting companies, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to stumble upon a free of cost web hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting vendors typically provide free customer support even to the free webspace hosting users, since they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they eventually migrate to a paid hosting plan, which offers more website hosting resources. One such company, for example, is, which is among the biggest and eldest free web space hosting distributors worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting corporations such as Exclusive Hosting, for instance, are able to maintain many web hosting servers and therefore, they may afford to provide much more powerful site hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the site hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a site hosting package, however, does not automatically mean that this plan has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the actual service which you're obtaining. The first-class hosting providers that have been around for a long time are revealing their price tags and package specifications in a realistic manner, so that the customer may be informed of what in fact he is getting. Furthermore, some of these give a free extra with the hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of fee-free web site skins that are provided by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Such web hosting firms do worry about their good name and that's why if you select them, you can be certain that you won't get duped into purchasing a package that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I anticipate from a shared hosting service?

The shared webspace hosting solution is best for those who desire to host an average website, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared webspace hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business develops, your site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual private web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a hosting provider, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different supplier, which can bring about web site complications and even continuous downtime for your website. Hence, selecting a web site hosting supplier like 'Exclusive Hosting', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you a lot of annoyances in the long run.
