An interpretation of web page hosting

The most basic and universally used sort of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It represents a means to host your site without having to understand much about programming and operating a web hosting server. In addition to this, it's also the most inexpensive type of web hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared site hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name indicates, the shared site hosting service is a type of service where plenty of customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This goes to say that all web server ingredients like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards etc. are split among the clients whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is mostly rendered viable by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and setting some limitations and quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are applied so as to prevent the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared webspace hosting users do not have full root-level access to the server's configuration files, which principally signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server apart from their very own shared hosting account. The web page hosting resources that each account may resort to are fixed by the hosting supplier that owns the web hosting server and by the particular webspace hosting package. That paves the way for the second vital question:

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

Hosting providers that deliver shared website hosting plans normally have diverse web hosting plans. Those plans offer diverse quotas of site hosting resources and specs, which in fact fix the restrictions that a website hosting package will include. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The web space hosting package will then determine what limits the client's account will include, once created. The costs and the specifications of the web hosting plans are defined by the given hosting company. Depending on the policy of the company, the shared hosting solution can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the normal shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they actually are dependent on the marketing policy of the given company and, of course, the demands of the particular user.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the normal shared web hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free hosting firms are not capable of maintaining an enormous amount of web servers, therefore, they simply host more clients on one single web hosting server by lowering the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web servers are supervised and tackled appropriately, since the immense amount of accounts may cause the server to crash frequently. The majority of the free web space hosting corporations, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite difficult to stumble upon a free hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting vendors normally offer free technical support even to the free site hosting customers, because they want their websites to expand so that they subsequently move to a paid web site hosting account, which offers more hosting resources. Such provider, for example, is, which is one of the largest and oldest free web space hosting companies worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting vendors such as SynNetHost, for example, are able to keep many servers and hence, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web site hosting package, however, does not automatically denote that this account has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're getting. The top web hosting providers that have been around for quite some time are showing their prices and package specifications in a realistic fashion, so that the client may acquainted with what exactly he is obtaining. Furthermore, some of them provide a free extra with the site hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of gratis web site themes that are offered by 'SynNetHost'. Such web hosting companies do care about their reputation and that's why if you choose them, you can rest assured that you won't get duped into buying an account that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I expect from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared web hosting solution is best for individuals who are looking to host a normal web site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared website hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business develops, your web site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich web space hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when choosing a site hosting vendor, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different distributor, which can cause site troubles and even extended downtime for your web page. Hence, choosing a webspace hosting vendor like 'SynNetHost', which can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will spare you lots of difficulties in the future.
