A description of webspace hosting

The most fundamental and widely availed of form of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administering a web hosting server. Additionally, it's also the most inexpensive type of site hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is shared web page hosting?

What is shared web page hosting?

As the name implies, the shared web hosting solution is a type of service where many users share the system reserves of one and the same server. This signifies that all server constituents such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are divided among the users whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is typically rendered tenable by setting up different accounts for the different clients and fixing certain limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are assigned so as to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Typically, shared website hosting customers do not have root access to the server's configuration files, which primarily goes to say that they cannot access anything else on the server apart from their own hosting account. The web space hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting firm that possesses the server and by the respective webspace hosting plan. That leads up to the second vital question:

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

Web hosting vendors that supply shared webspace hosting solutions commonly have diverse site hosting packages. Those packages offer diverse amounts of web site hosting features and specs, which in fact set the limits that a website hosting account will have. The user may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The hosting plan will then define what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the features of the site hosting packages are chosen by the very hosting distributor. Depending on the politics of the vendor, the shared hosting service can be divided into two types - the free hosting service and the typical shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to tell, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they indeed are dependent on the business tactics of the specific provider and, of course, the requirements of the specific user.

What is the difference between the free of charge and the regular shared web space hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free webspace hosting corporations are not capable of keeping a large number of servers, therefore, they merely host more users on one hosting server by lowering the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the servers are kept under surveillance and tackled appropriately, since the huge number of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash time and time again. The majority of the free site hosting suppliers, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very tough to come across a free of cost website hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting vendors commonly offer free client support even to the free site hosting clients, because they want their web portals to grow so that they eventually move to a paid hosting package, which includes more web space hosting features. Such company, for instance, is, which is among the largest and oldest free hosting companies in the world.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting suppliers such as R2D2 Consultancy Services, for example, may afford to keep multiple hosting servers and hence, they may afford to provide much more feature-rich site hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the site hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web site hosting solution, however, does not necessarily mean that this service has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're getting. The first-class website hosting corporations that have been around for quite a while are exhibiting their price tags and plan specs in an objective way, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is obtaining. Additionally, some of them provide a free extra with the hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of fee-free web templates that are supplied by 'R2D2 Consultancy Services'. Such site hosting corporations do worry about their good name and that's why if you go with them, you can be calm that you won't get beguiled into buying a package that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a shared webspace hosting service?

The shared website hosting solution is best for those who want to host a basic web site, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web site hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business develops, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a site hosting vendor, you should also think about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up relocating your domain name manually to a different distributor, which can create website predicaments and even prolonged downtime for your site. So, selecting a site hosting distributor such as 'R2D2 Consultancy Services', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will spare you lots of complications in the future.
