A description of web hosting

The most basic and regularly used form of web hosting is the shared web hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and handling a web server. In addition to this, it's also the most inexpensive type of web space hosting and it's in fact affordable for everybody. Still, what is shared website hosting?

What is shared website hosting?

As the name implies, the shared website hosting service is a form of service where numerous customers share the reserves of the same web hosting server. This indicates that all server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are apportioned among the clients whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mainly rendered tenable by opening different accounts for the separate clients and assigning certain limits and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are fixed in order to hinder the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Usually, shared web hosting customers do not have complete root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which essentially means that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server aside from their very own hosting account. The site hosting resources that each account may avail of are set by the hosting vendor that possesses the server and by the respective web space hosting package. That brings about the second important question:

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

Hosting companies that supply shared web hosting services usually have diverse website hosting plans. Those plans offer diverse quotas of web site hosting resources and specifications, which actually set the limitations that a webspace hosting package will have. The client may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The hosting plan will then define what limits the customer's account will have, once set up. The prices and the specifications of the hosting plans are chosen by the actual hosting company. Based on the politics of the vendor, the shared webspace hosting solution can be divided into two types - the free hosting service and the classic shared service, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are dependent on the marketing tactics of the given corporation and, of course, the requirements of the given client.

What is the contrast between the free and the regular shared hosting solution?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free website hosting firms are not capable of keeping a huge amount of web servers, therefore, they just accommodate more customers on a single web hosting server by reducing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the web hosting servers are monitored and maintained properly, since the immense amount of accounts may make the server crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free web hosting firms, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's very tough to find a free web space hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations normally offer free technical support even to the free web hosting users, since they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they subsequently move to a paid web site hosting plan, which offers more webspace hosting resources. One such vendor, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and eldest free website hosting suppliers in the world.

On the other hand, established shared web hosting providers like Charlotte's Web Solution, for example, may afford to keep multiple web servers and therefore, they are able to offer much more feature-rich web site hosting packages. Of course, that influences the cost of the site hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a website hosting service, however, does not automatically signify that this solution has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the real service which you're obtaining. The best website hosting firms that have been around for quite some time are listing their price tags and plan configurations in a realistic way, so that the client may be informed of what exactly he is receiving. Also, some of these offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-cost design templates that are supplied by 'Charlotte's Web Solution'. Such hosting companies do care about their reputation and this is the reason why if you select them, you can be confident that you won't get swindled into buying a package that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I anticipate from a shared web hosting service?

The shared web hosting service is best for persons who want to host a normal web portal, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared web page hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business develops, your site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful web space hosting service like a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (aka a private virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when picking a webspace hosting provider, you should also reflect about how they can be of service to you, otherwise you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different company, which can create website troubles and even continued downtime for your site. Hence, picking a website hosting company like 'Charlotte's Web Solution', which can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you a lot of complications in the future.
