The most archetypal and regularly utilized variety of web hosting is the hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and running a web hosting server. Besides, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's in fact affordable for anybody. Still, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name implies, the hosting service is a kind of service where a lot of customers share the system reserves of the same web server. This indicates that all hosting server constituents like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is mostly made achievable by setting up different accounts for the separate users and appointing certain limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are applied so as to prevent the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Normally, hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the web server's config files, which primarily goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the web server beside their own hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the respective web hosting package. That gives rise to the second essential question:

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

Web hosting corporations that supply hosting accounts usually have different web hosting plans. Those plans contain diverse amounts of website hosting resources and specs, which actually fix the limits that a website hosting plan will include. The customer may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The web hosting plan will then define what limits the user's account will involve, once created. The prices and the features of the website hosting plans are set by the particular web hosting supplier. Based on the policy of the supplier, the hosting solution falls into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the common shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" suppliers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to claim, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they really are determined by the business strategy of the specific distributor and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the regular hosting solution?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they contain. Free website hosting corporations are not able to keep an immense number of web servers, hence, they simply accommodate more customers on one single server by lowering the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web hosting servers are kept under surveillance and maintained appropriately, because the great number of accounts may causer the web server to crash frequently. The majority of the free hosting companies, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to come across a free of charge web hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors usually provide free client support even to the free hosting customers, since they want their web pages to grow so that they subsequently migrate to a paid web hosting package, which includes more web hosting resources. Such provider, for instance, is, which is one of the largest and eldest free website hosting firms in the world.

At the same time, established hosting distributors such as us, may afford to maintain numerous web servers and so, we are able to offer much more feature-rich web hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a website hosting account, though, does not necessarily imply that this service has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the concrete service which you're receiving. What's more, we also give a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free site skins. As a hosting firm, we do worry about our good name and this is the reason why if you choose us, you can rest calm that you won't get duped into purchasing a plan that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I anticipate from a hosting service?

The hosting service is best for persons who desire to host an average web portal, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business develops, your web site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (aka a private virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when picking a web hosting provider, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different distributor, which can create web site predicaments and even extended downtime for your web portal. If you select as your hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of frustrations in the future.
