Shared Hosting Description

The most standard and frequently availed of sort of web hosting is the web hosting service. It constitutes a way to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and administering a hosting server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive form of hosting and it's in fact affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting service is a sort of service where numerous users share the reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This denotes that all server ingredients like CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is typically made accomplishable by opening separate accounts for the different users and fixing given limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set so as to prevent the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overburdening. Typically, web hosting customers do not have root access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which basically suggests that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server aside from their very own web hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting company that owns the server and by the given web hosting package. That leads to the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the users?

Web hosting suppliers that distribute web hosting packages usually have different website hosting plans. Those packages provide diverse amounts of hosting resources and specs, which actually define the limits that a website hosting account will have. The user may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what limitations the user's account will include, once opened. The prices and the features of the web hosting packages are set by the very web hosting firm. Depending on the politics of the distributor, the web hosting solution can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the typical shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" wholesalers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to declare, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they really are dependent on the marketing strategy of the specific corporation and, of course, the demands of the particular client.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the common web hosting service?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of features that they involve. Free web hosting firms are not capable of maintaining a great number of web hosting servers, therefore, they merely host more users on a single web hosting server by reducing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the servers are supervised and tackled properly, because the immense number of accounts may make the server crash time and time again. The majority of the free web hosting distributors, though, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very tough to come across a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting suppliers typically offer free customer support even to the free hosting users, because they want their web sites to grow so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting package, which offers more web hosting features. One such corporation, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and eldest free web hosting vendors in the world.

On the other hand, established web hosting suppliers such as us, are able to keep a lot of hosting servers and hence, we are able to provide much more powerful hosting packages. Of course, that influences the cost of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting solution, though, does not automatically imply that this service has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. In addition, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of gratis web page templates. As a hosting supplier, we do care about our good name and this is the reason why if you choose us, you can rest certain that you won't get swindled into purchasing a plan that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for those who would like to host a basic website, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business expands, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when choosing a website hosting company, you should also think about scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a different vendor, which can create web site problems and even continued downtime for your website. If you pick Flying Sulcer as your web hosting company, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you lots of annoyances in the future.
