An explanation of web page hosting

The most basic and frequently utilized form of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your website without having to know much about programming and operating a hosting server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive type of web page hosting and it's very affordable for anybody. Still, what is shared web site hosting?

What is shared webspace hosting?

As the name indicates, the shared website hosting solution is a sort of service where multiple users share the reserves of the same web server. This signifies that all hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are apportioned among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is usually rendered tenable by creating separate accounts for the different customers and allocating certain restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are allocated in order to prevent the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overburdening. Usually, shared website hosting customers do not have full root access to the server's configuration files, which principally denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server aside from their own personal shared hosting account. The webspace hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the hosting vendor that owns the server and by the given site hosting package. That paves the way for the second essential question:

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

Web hosting corporations that supply shared web page hosting accounts commonly have various site hosting packages. Those packages involve diverse quotas of web space hosting resources and specs, which in fact set the restrictions that a site hosting plan will include. The user may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The web space hosting package will then determine what limitations the customer's account will have, once set up. The costs and the features of the hosting packages are chosen by the given web hosting corporation. Based on the politics of the supplier, the shared web hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting service and the classic shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to say, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they actually are dependent on the business policy of the given provider and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

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

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they provide. Free site hosting companies are not able to maintain a great number of web servers, hence, they simply host more users on a single server by decreasing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the servers are supervised and tackled properly, since the great amount of accounts may make the hosting server crash frequently. The majority of the free webspace hosting vendors, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to come across a free site hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting companies commonly provide free technical support even to the free web hosting customers, since they want their sites to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid web hosting plan, which offers more webspace hosting resources. One such supplier, for example, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web space hosting distributors worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting companies such as IRCMRU Hosting, for example, are able to keep many web servers and hence, they may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a webspace hosting account, though, does not automatically signify that this package has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the concrete service which you're obtaining. The first-rate site hosting vendors that have been around for quite a while are presenting their prices and plan configurations in a realistic way, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is obtaining. In addition, some of them give a free extra with the webspace hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of charge-free website layouts that are offered by 'IRCMRU Hosting'. Such web site hosting providers do look after their good name and this is the reason why if you pick them, you can be certain that you won't get deceived into paying for a solution that you cannot actually use.

What should I anticipate from a shared website hosting service?

The shared web page hosting solution is best for people who want to host a basic web page, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a shared web page hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business gets bigger, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately migrate to a more feature-rich web site hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (also known as a private virtual server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a web space hosting distributor, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up transferring your domain name manually to a separate distributor, which can cause site problems and even continuous downtime for your site. Therefore, going with a web space hosting provider such as 'IRCMRU Hosting', which can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will spare you a lot of annoyances in the future.
