The most primary and frequently availed of sort of web hosting is the shared hosting service. It's a means to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and managing a server. Moreover, it's also the most economical type of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name implies, the shared hosting service is a form of service where a lot of customers share the system reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This means that all web server ingredients such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are divided among the clients whose accounts are on that very same server. This is usually rendered feasible by opening separate accounts for the separate users and setting specific restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are appointed so as to restrain the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overloading. Typically, shared hosting clients do not have root access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which primarily suggests that they cannot access anything else on the web server but their very own hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may use are determined by the web hosting supplier that owns the hosting server and by the given website hosting package. That entails the second essential question:

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

Hosting corporations that offer shared hosting solutions normally have diverse website hosting plans. Those packages contain diverse amounts of web hosting resources and specifications, which in fact determine the restrictions that a web hosting plan will have. The user may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting plan will then determine what limitations the user's account will include, once created. The costs and the features of the web hosting plans are fixed by the specific web hosting corporation. Based on the policy of the corporation, the shared hosting solution can be divided into 2 categories - the free hosting solution and the popular shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to announce, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they actually depend on the marketing policy of the specific supplier and, of course, the needs of the given customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the classic shared hosting service?

Of course, the chief difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they provide. Free website hosting suppliers are not able to keep a huge number of servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more customers on one single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the web hosting servers are monitored and tackled appropriately, because the great amount of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash regularly. Most of the free website hosting vendors, however, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's very tough to discover a free of charge web hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting firms commonly provide free customer support even to the free web hosting clients, because they want their web portals to enlarge so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which offers more web hosting resources. Such supplier, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and oldest free web hosting suppliers worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared hosting providers like us, may afford to maintain lots of servers and therefore, we may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting service, however, does not necessarily signify that this package has a finer quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. Besides, we also give a free bonus with the web hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of charge-free web page templates. As a web hosting distributor, we do look after our good name and this is the reason why if you select us, you can be assured that you won't get swindled into purchasing an account that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I anticipate from a shared hosting service?

The shared hosting service is best for individuals who would like to host a normal website, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows bigger, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (also known as a private virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when picking a web hosting company, you should also think about scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate supplier, which can bring about site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your website. If you pick Australia Raidlayer as your web hosting company, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you a lot of nuisances in the long run.
