What Indeed is Shared Website Hosting?

The most archetypal and universally availed of sort of web hosting is the shared hosting service. It represents a means to host your web site without having to know much about programming and managing a web server. In addition, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name signifies, the shared hosting solution is a form of service where numerous clients share the resources of the same server. This implies that all hosting server components such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are allotted among the customers whose accounts are on that same web server. This is mostly made tenable by opening separate accounts for the separate customers and assigning some restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated so as to prevent the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, shared hosting users do not have root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which essentially indicates that they cannot access anything else on the server but their own hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may avail of are fixed by the web hosting provider that possesses the web server and by the respective website hosting plan. That predetermines the second essential question:

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

Hosting vendors that offer shared hosting packages typically have different web hosting packages. Those packages offer diverse quotas of web hosting features and specs, which in fact determine the restrictions that a web hosting account will include. The user may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The website hosting plan will then determine what limitations the customer's account will include, once created. The costs and the specifications of the web hosting packages are defined by the actual hosting supplier. Based on the politics of the distributor, the shared hosting service can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting solution and the normal shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they actually are dependent on the business tactics of the given company and, of course, the requirements of the particular user.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the normal shared hosting solution?

Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free website hosting corporations are not able to maintain a large amount of servers, therefore, they plainly host more users on a single web server by lowering the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the servers are supervised and maintained properly, because the huge amount of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash time and time again. Most of the free hosting firms, though, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's very hard to come across a free website hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors typically offer free client support even to the free web hosting users, because they want their websites to expand so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web hosting account, which offers more hosting resources. One such distributor, for example, is, which is among the largest and eldest free web hosting companies worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional shared hosting providers like us, are able to keep plenty of web servers and as a result, we are able to offer much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a website hosting service, though, does not necessarily imply that this solution has a finer quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the real service which you're getting. What's more, we also offer a free bonus with the web hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary web page layouts. As a web hosting supplier, we do look after our good name and that's why if you go with us, you can rest assured that you won't get deluded into purchasing an account that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I expect from a shared hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for persons who wish to host a normal web portal, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business expands, your web site will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful website hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (a.k.a. a virtual private web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when choosing a hosting provider, you should also think about scalability, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate provider, which can cause website problems and even continuous downtime for your site. If you pick CzarDomains as your website hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will save you lots of hassles in the future.
