The most fundamental and universally utilized kind of web hosting is the shared hosting solution. It represents a way to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and administering a hosting server. Furthermore, it's also the most inexpensive type of website hosting and it's indeed affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared hosting service is a kind of service where lots of clients share the reserves of one and the same hosting server. This indicates that all web server ingredients such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards etc. are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is usually rendered viable by creating separate accounts for the separate customers and assigning specific limitations and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are applied in order to restrain the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Typically, shared hosting clients do not have root-level access to the server's config files, which principally signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server but their very own web hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may avail of are set by the hosting company that owns the server and by the particular website hosting plan. That results in the second important question:

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

Hosting providers that supply shared hosting plans normally have different web hosting packages. Those plans offer diverse amounts of hosting resources and specifications, which actually set the restrictions that a web hosting package will have. The customer may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The web hosting plan will then define what limitations the customer's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the features of the web hosting plans are specified by the particular web hosting provider. Depending on the policy of the firm, the shared hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the standard shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to state, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they really depend on the business policy of the specific provider and, of course, the requirements of the specific customer.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the typical shared hosting service?

Of course, the major difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free web hosting corporations are not able to keep a great amount of web servers, therefore, they simply accommodate more customers on a single web server by lowering the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the servers are monitored and maintained appropriately, because the large amount of accounts may make the server crash over and over again. Most of the free website hosting distributors, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to discover a free web hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting firms usually offer free client support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they eventually migrate to a paid website hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. Such vendor, for instance, is, which is among the biggest and oldest free website hosting firms worldwide.

On the other hand, established shared hosting vendors like us, are able to keep lots of hosting servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a website hosting package, though, does not automatically signify that this service has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the real service which you're obtaining. Furthermore, we also offer a free bonus with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-charge website layouts. As a website hosting vendor, we do care about our reputation and that's why if you go with us, you can be calm that you won't get deluded into purchasing a solution that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a shared hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for individuals who wish to host a basic web site, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a shared hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business expands, your site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful website hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (aka a virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server.Therefore, when picking a website hosting company, you should also think about scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different company, which can bring about web site problems and even continuous downtime for your web page. If you select Shirinyan Hosting as your hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of problems in the long run.
