A definition of hosting

The most elemental and universally utilized sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and handling a web hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the most inexpensive form of site hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. However, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared web page hosting solution is a kind of service where a lot of users share the reserves of one and the same server. This suggests that all server components like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards etc. are shared among the users whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is typically made tenable by creating separate accounts for the separate clients and applying specific limits and quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are set in order to prevent the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Typically, shared website hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files, which principally suggests that they do not have access to anything else on the web server aside from their own website hosting account. The webspace hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the web hosting supplier that possesses the hosting server and by the respective webspace hosting plan. That gives rise to the second vital question:

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

Hosting providers that supply shared webspace hosting accounts commonly have diverse hosting packages. Those plans provide diverse amounts of web space hosting features and specifications, which actually define the limits that a webspace hosting plan will include. The customer may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The hosting plan will then define what limits the customer's account will involve, once created. The prices and the specs of the website hosting plans are defined by the specific web hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the supplier, the shared website hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting solution and the normal shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" firms as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are determined by the marketing tactics of the given supplier and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the typical shared hosting solution?

Of course, the chief difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they provide. Free web site hosting firms are not able to maintain a big amount of web servers, hence, they merely host more users on one single web server by reducing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are monitored and administered appropriately, because the big amount of accounts may make the web server crash over and over again. Most of the free hosting providers, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to find a free of charge webspace hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting corporations normally offer free client support even to the free hosting clients, because they want their web pages to get bigger so that they subsequently migrate to a paid hosting plan, which includes more website hosting resources. One such corporation, for instance, is, which is among the largest and oldest free website hosting providers worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting companies like AIDA Host, for example, are able to maintain numerous web servers and therefore, they are able to provide much more powerful hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the site hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting package, though, does not automatically signify that this service has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the actual service which you're receiving. The first-rate webspace hosting firms that have been around for quite a while are presenting their price tags and plan specifications in a realistic fashion, so that the customer may be informed of what indeed he is getting. Furthermore, some of these give a free bonus with the web space hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of charge-free design themes that are provided by 'AIDA Host'. Such hosting distributors do care about their good name and that's why if you pick them, you can rest assured that you won't get duped into paying for a service that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I anticipate from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared web page hosting service is best for persons who wish to host a basic web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web page hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business expands, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more powerful web site hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a website hosting vendor, you should also consider how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a different provider, which can create web site complications and even prolonged downtime for your web page. Therefore, going with a webspace hosting company like 'AIDA Host', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will save you a lot of predicaments in the long run.
