An interpretation of website hosting

The most basic and regularly utilized type of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a way to host your web site without having to know much about programming and running a web hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the cheapest form of web space hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. However, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared webspace hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared web space hosting service is a sort of service where a lot of clients share the system reserves of the same hosting server. This suggests that all web server elements like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are distributed among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is normally rendered viable by creating different accounts for the separate clients and assigning some restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set in order to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Normally, shared webspace hosting customers do not have root access to the web hosting server's config files, which basically denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server apart from their very own web hosting account. The web space hosting resources that each account may avail of are determined by the hosting supplier that possesses the server and by the particular hosting package. That necessitates the second essential question:

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

Web hosting firms that furnish shared site hosting accounts commonly have diverse web site hosting packages. Those plans involve different amounts of web space hosting resources and specs, which actually fix the restrictions that a web hosting account will include. The user may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The web space hosting package will then define what limitations the client's account will involve, once created. The costs and the specs of the web hosting plans are defined by the actual hosting distributor. Depending on the policy of the distributor, the shared web space hosting solution can be divided into two groups - the free hosting solution and the common shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to state, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they actually are subject to the marketing tactics of the particular distributor and, of course, the needs of the particular customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the classic shared hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free web hosting companies are not capable of keeping a huge amount of web servers, therefore, they simply accommodate more clients on one single web server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are supervised and dealt with properly, since the immense amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash regularly. The majority of the free webspace hosting suppliers, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to stumble upon a free of charge web hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting vendors normally offer free client support even to the free web space hosting clients, since they want their web portals to grow so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web space hosting account, which offers more hosting features. Such firm, for example, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web site hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, established shared web hosting distributors such as GrandGraphics, for example, may afford to keep numerous servers and hence, they are able to offer much more feature-rich site hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a website hosting plan, though, does not necessarily mean that this package has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the real service which you're obtaining. The top-notch web site hosting distributors that have been around for a long time are showing their prices and plan specs in an objective fashion, so that the client may know what in fact he is receiving. Additionally, some of them give a free extra with the webspace hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of charge-free design themes that are supplied by 'GrandGraphics'. Such hosting distributors do care about their good name and that is the reason why if you select them, you can be certain that you won't get beguiled into purchasing a service that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I expect from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared webspace hosting solution is best for those who desire to host a standard website, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business enlarges, your web page will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich webspace hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a web site hosting provider, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a separate company, which can bring about site problems and even prolonged downtime for your website. Hence, selecting a web hosting provider such as 'GrandGraphics', which can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will spare you lots of nuisances in the future.
