An explanation of site hosting

The most archetypal and universally used type of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administering a server. In addition, it's also the most economical type of webspace hosting and it's indeed affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is shared site hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared web hosting solution is a sort of service where many users share the system resources of the same hosting server. This implies that all server components like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is usually rendered accomplishable by opening separate accounts for the different users and assigning certain limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are fixed so as to hinder the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, shared web site hosting clients do not have root-level access to the server's configuration files, which essentially signifies that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server but their own personal shared web hosting account. The web space hosting features that each account may utilize are set by the web hosting vendor that owns the hosting server and by the particular web site hosting plan. That gives rise to the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the clients?

Web hosting vendors that provide shared web hosting services typically have different web space hosting plans. Those packages provide different quotas of site hosting features and specifications, which actually define the restrictions that a site hosting plan will include. The user may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The site hosting plan will then determine what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specs of the hosting plans are set by the very hosting distributor. Based on the politics of the corporation, the shared hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the standard shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" firms as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are subject to the business tactics of the specific firm and, of course, the requirements of the given customer.

What is the distinction between the free and the common shared website hosting solution?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free site hosting vendors are not capable of keeping a large amount of hosting servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on one web hosting server by decreasing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the servers are kept under surveillance and administered properly, since the big amount of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash again and again. The majority of the free web hosting companies, though, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to discover a free website hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting firms commonly provide free technical support even to the free webspace hosting customers, because they want their web sites to enlarge so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. One such supplier, for instance, is, which is one of the largest and oldest free website hosting corporations in the world.

At the same time, established shared web hosting vendors like AIDA Host, for example, are able to maintain lots of hosting servers and so, they may afford to offer much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the webspace hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a site hosting package, though, does not automatically signify that this account has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're receiving. The top-notch webspace hosting distributors that have been around for quite a while are showing their price tags and package specifications in a realistic way, so that the client may know what exactly he is getting. In addition, some of them provide a free bonus with the web site hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of cost-free web templates that are furnished by 'AIDA Host'. Such webspace hosting firms do look after their good name and that's why if you select them, you can be assured that you won't get swindled into purchasing an account that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I anticipate from a shared webspace hosting solution?

The shared web site hosting solution is best for people who are looking to host an average site, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared web site hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business expands, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich web space hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual web server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a web site hosting company, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a different distributor, which can bring about website troubles and even continued downtime for your site. Therefore, going with a web space hosting company such as 'AIDA Host', which can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of complications in the future.
