Shared Hosting Description

The most basic and universally used type of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administrating a hosting server. Additionally, it's also the most inexpensive type of website hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared web hosting?

What is shared web hosting?

As the name designates, the shared web hosting solution is a sort of service where numerous users share the system reserves of the same web hosting server. This denotes that all server elements such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are split among the clients whose accounts are on that same server. This is mostly rendered attainable by opening different accounts for the separate customers and setting some limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are appointed in order to prevent the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, shared web hosting users do not have root access to the server's configuration files, which principally indicates that they cannot access anything else on the server beside their own personal website hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the web hosting vendor that owns the web server and by the particular website hosting package. That brings on the second vital question:

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

Web hosting corporations that supply shared web hosting services normally have various website hosting plans. Those plans include diverse quotas of website hosting resources and specs, which actually determine the limitations that a website hosting plan will include. The client may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will befit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what limits the client's account will have, once created. The prices and the specs of the hosting packages are determined by the given web hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the company, the shared web hosting service falls into 2 groups - the free hosting service and the typical shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" corporations 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 indeed are subject to the business tactics of the particular vendor and, of course, the requirements of the specific customer.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the classic shared web hosting solution?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free hosting companies are not capable of keeping a great number of hosting servers, therefore, they simply host more users on one single web hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web servers are monitored and dealt with appropriately, since the large number of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash regularly. Most of the free hosting suppliers, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's very tough to discover a free website hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations typically provide free technical support even to the free web hosting users, because they want their websites to grow bigger so that they subsequently migrate to a paid hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. Such firm, for instance, is, which is among the largest and oldest free website hosting corporations in the world.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting corporations such as us, are able to maintain many web servers and as a result, we may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting plan, however, does not automatically mean that this account has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're obtaining. Also, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free-of-charge web page themes. 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 deluded into buying a service that you cannot in fact use.

What should I expect from a shared web hosting solution?

The shared web hosting service is best for people who are looking to host a normal web portal, which is going to use a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business enlarges, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more powerful web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server web hosting, a VPS web hosting (a.k.a. a virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server web hosting. So, when picking a hosting vendor, you should also ponder about scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can bring about website problems and even continued downtime for your site. If you pick Fireband Cloud as your website hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will save you lots of headaches in the long run.
