The most principal and regularly availed of kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It's a way to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and administrating a server. In addition to that, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is shared web hosting?

What is shared web hosting?

As the name designates, the shared web hosting service is a kind of service where numerous customers share the system resources of the same hosting server. This goes to say that all server ingredients like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards etc. are allotted among the clients whose accounts are on that very same server. This is typically rendered accomplishable by opening separate accounts for the different users and allocating some limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated so as to hinder the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, shared web hosting customers do not have root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which principally implies that they cannot access anything else on the web server beside their very own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may use are set by the hosting distributor that owns the web server and by the particular web hosting plan. That paves the way for the second important question:

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

Web hosting companies that supply shared web hosting packages typically have different website hosting plans. Those packages involve different quotas of website hosting features and specifications, which actually fix the limits that a hosting account will include. The client may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The hosting package will then define what limitations the user's account will have, once created. The costs and the specifications of the web hosting plans are fixed by the given web hosting corporation. Depending on the policy of the provider, the shared web hosting solution can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the popular shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" wholesalers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they really are determined by the business tactics of the particular firm and, of course, the demands of the specific customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the standard shared web hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they offer. Free web hosting distributors are not able to maintain an enormous amount of hosting servers, hence, they merely host more users on a single web hosting server by decreasing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web servers are kept under surveillance and tackled properly, since the big number of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash over and over again. The majority of the free website hosting corporations, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite tough to stumble upon a free of cost website hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting companies commonly provide free customer support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their sites to expand so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which includes more website hosting resources. One such corporation, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and eldest free web hosting corporations in the world.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting suppliers such as us, are able to maintain numerous hosting servers and therefore, we are able to offer much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a website hosting account, though, does not automatically mean that this account has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the actual service which you're receiving. What's more, we also provide a free extra with the website hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-charge website skins. As a website hosting corporation, we do worry about our good name and that's why if you pick us, you can be certain that you won't get deluded into buying a plan that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I expect from a shared web hosting service?

The shared web hosting solution is best for persons who wish to host a basic web page, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business enlarges, your web site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting solution like a semi-dedicated server web hosting, a VPS web hosting (aka a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server web hosting. So, when choosing a website hosting distributor, you should also consider scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can create website predicaments and even continued downtime for your web site. If you choose Hesse Hosting as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will save you lots of problems in the long run.
