The most fundamental and frequently used kind of web hosting is the hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and managing a web server. Additionally, it's also the most economical type of web hosting and it's very affordable for anybody. However, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name signifies, the hosting service is a form of service where many users share the system reserves of one and the same web server. This means that all server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is usually rendered achievable by creating different accounts for the separate clients and fixing certain limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are appointed in order to prevent the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overburdening. Usually, hosting clients do not have full root-level access to the web server's configuration files, which essentially means that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server aside from their own hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may resort to are set by the hosting corporation that possesses the server and by the given web hosting package. That paves the way for the second vital question:

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

Web hosting suppliers that offer hosting plans normally have various web hosting packages. Those plans involve diverse amounts of website hosting features and specs, which actually fix the limitations 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 thinks will suit him best. The web hosting package will then define what limits the client's account will have, once created. The prices and the features of the website hosting packages are specified by the very web hosting distributor. Based on the politics of the corporation, the hosting service can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting solution and the normal shared service, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to say, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are subject to the business strategy of the particular provider and, of course, the demands of the particular client.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the normal hosting solution?

Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they include. Free hosting suppliers are not able to maintain an immense number of web servers, hence, they merely host more clients on a single hosting server by reducing the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the hosting servers are supervised and maintained appropriately, since the great number of accounts may causer the web server to crash again and again. Most of the free website hosting providers, though, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite hard to discover a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting providers usually offer free customer support even to the free website hosting customers, because they want their sites to enlarge so that they eventually move to a paid hosting account, which offers more web hosting features. One such firm, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free hosting firms in the world.

On the other hand, established hosting companies like us, may afford to maintain multiple web hosting servers and as a result, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a website hosting service, though, does not necessarily mean that this solution has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the actual service which you're obtaining. Besides, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of cost-free web templates. As a hosting companie, we do worry about our reputation and this is the reason why if you choose us, you can be certain that you won't get hoaxed into buying an account that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a hosting solution?

The hosting service is best for those who wish to host a normal web portal, which is going to use a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful website hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (aka a private virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a website hosting supplier, you should also reflect about scalability, otherwise you might end up moving your domain manually to a different distributor, which can create site complications and even continuous downtime for your website. If you choose Best Paid Hosting as your website hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you a lot of problems in the long run.
