The most standard and regularly used sort of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It's a means to host your site without having to know much about programming and handling a web server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive form of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for everybody. Nonetheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting solution is a kind of service where a lot of clients share the resources of one and the same server. This denotes that all server components such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs etc. are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that same server. This is normally made feasible by opening different accounts for the separate users and applying given restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are assigned so as to prevent the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Usually, web hosting users do not have complete root access to the hosting server's config files, which principally means that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server beside their own web hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting firm that owns the hosting server and by the given website hosting package. That leads to the second vital question:

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

Web hosting corporations that offer web hosting packages commonly have different web hosting packages. Those plans involve different amounts of web hosting features and specifications, which in fact determine the limitations that a web hosting account will include. The client may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what limitations the client's account will include, once opened. The costs and the specifications of the website hosting plans are specified by the particular web hosting firm. Depending on the politics of the corporation, the web hosting solution can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the common shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" corporations as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to announce, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed depend on the marketing strategy of the specific company and, of course, the needs of the given customer.

What is the difference between the free and the standard web hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free web hosting companies are not capable of keeping a big number of hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more clients on a single web hosting server by reducing the amount of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the servers are monitored and administered properly, because the great amount of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash frequently. Most of the free website hosting corporations, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to discover a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations commonly provide free technical support even to the free website hosting clients, since they want their websites to expand so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid web hosting account, which includes more web hosting features. Such firm, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and eldest free website hosting providers in the world.

On the other hand, established web hosting suppliers like us, are able to keep multiple web servers and so, we are able to provide much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting solution, however, does not automatically denote that this solution has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're getting. Additionally, we also provide a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary themes. As a website hosting corporation, we do worry about our good name and this is the reason why if you go with us, you can rest certain that you won't get tricked into purchasing a solution that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for persons who wish to host a normal web portal, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business expands, your web page will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful hosting solution like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when choosing a hosting provider, you should also ponder about scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a separate supplier, which can cause website troubles and even extended downtime for your web page. If you go with TuPaginaCR.com as your web hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will spare you a lot of annoyances in the long run.
