The most standard and frequently used variety of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It's a way to host your site without having to understand much about programming and running a server. Additionally, it's also the most economical form of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for everybody. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name hints, the web hosting solution is a kind of service where plenty of clients share the system reserves of one and the same web server. This denotes that all web server constituents like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is usually rendered attainable by setting up separate accounts for the different customers and allocating specific limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are assigned so as to restrain the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Normally, web hosting customers do not have full root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which principally denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the web server but their very own hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may resort to are set by the hosting company that owns the web hosting server and by the respective website hosting package. That leads up to the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the users?

Web hosting firms that supply web hosting services typically have different web hosting plans. Those packages contain different amounts of hosting resources and specs, which in fact fix the limitations that a web hosting account will include. The customer may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The website hosting package will then define what limits the client's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specs of the web hosting packages are set by the very hosting vendor. Based on the politics of the vendor, the web hosting service falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the typical shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are dependent on the marketing policy of the given provider and, of course, the requirements of the given user.

What is the distinction between the free and the standard web hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they involve. Free web hosting firms are not capable of keeping a large amount of web hosting servers, hence, they just accommodate more clients on one single web hosting server by lowering the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are supervised and tackled properly, since the large number of accounts may make the server crash again and again. The majority of the free website hosting firms, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's very difficult to come across a free website hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting firms usually provide free technical support even to the free web hosting clients, because they want their sites to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which includes more hosting resources. One such vendor, for instance, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free hosting corporations worldwide.

At the same time, traditional web hosting companies such as us, may afford to keep plenty of web servers and so, we are able to provide much more feature-rich web hosting packages. Of course, that influences the cost of the hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a hosting package, however, does not automatically mean that this service has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the concrete service which you're obtaining. Also, we also give a free extra with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free-of-charge website themes. As a hosting firm, we do care about our reputation and that is the reason why if you select us, you can be calm that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I expect from a web hosting service?

The web hosting service is best for persons who would like to host a standard site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business gets bigger, your web site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more powerful web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (a.k.a. a virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. Therefore, when picking a website hosting vendor, you should also consider scalability, otherwise you might end up moving your domain manually to a different vendor, which can bring about site problems and even continuous downtime for your website. If you go with as your website hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will spare you a lot of headaches in the future.
