The most principal and frequently used sort of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and administrating a hosting server. What's more, it's also the most economical type of website hosting and it's in fact affordable for everybody. Still, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting service is a form of service where a lot of clients share the system reserves of the same hosting server. This suggests that all web server components such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are split among the clients whose accounts are on that very same web server. This is normally rendered viable by creating separate accounts for the separate clients and fixing given restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are applied so as to hinder the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overloading. Usually, web hosting customers do not have root-level access to the server's config files, which basically denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the web server but their very own website hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the web hosting supplier that owns the web hosting server and by the respective website hosting plan. That paves the way for the second essential question:

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

Web hosting providers that provide web hosting services commonly have various website hosting packages. Those plans provide diverse amounts of website hosting resources and specifications, which actually determine the limits that a web hosting plan will include. The customer may choose 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 customer's account will involve, once set up. The costs and the features of the hosting packages are chosen by the actual hosting firm. Based on the policy of the corporation, the web hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting solution and the regular shared service, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are subject to the marketing policy of the specific vendor and, of course, the demands of the particular client.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the classic web hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they offer. Free web hosting corporations are not able to maintain a huge amount of servers, therefore, they merely host more users on one server by reducing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the servers are monitored and maintained properly, because the immense amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash again and again. Most of the free website hosting vendors, however, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's quite hard to discover a free of cost web hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting vendors usually offer free client support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their web pages to expand so that they eventually upgrade to a paid web hosting account, which offers more website hosting resources. Such distributor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and oldest free web hosting companies in the world.

On the other hand, established web hosting firms like us, are able to keep a lot of web hosting servers and as a result, we are able to offer much more powerful web hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting service, however, does not necessarily mean that this solution has a finer quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're receiving. What's more, we also provide a free extra with the hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of fee-free web design layouts. As a hosting firm, we do care about our good name and that is the reason why if you select us, you can rest calm that you won't get deluded into purchasing a plan that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting service?

The web hosting service is best for individuals who wish to host a standard web page, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when choosing a hosting vendor, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a different provider, which can create site troubles and even extended downtime for your website. If you go with Nawazish as your hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will spare you a lot of inconveniences in the future.
