The most standard and widely used sort of web hosting is the web hosting service. It's a means to host your site without having to know much about programming and operating a web hosting server. Besides, it's also the most economical type of web hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name indicates, the web hosting service is a kind of service where multiple clients share the system reserves of the same hosting server. This denotes that all hosting server elements like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are divided among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mainly made feasible by opening separate accounts for the separate clients and applying some limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are set in order to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overburdening. Normally, web hosting users do not have root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which principally signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the server apart from their own hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may resort to are fixed by the web hosting supplier that owns the server and by the particular website hosting plan. That necessitates the second vital question:

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

Web hosting corporations that deliver web hosting services normally have various website hosting packages. Those plans contain diverse quotas of web hosting resources and specs, which actually determine the limitations that a web hosting plan will have. The customer may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will suit him best. The website hosting package will then define what restrictions the user's account will have, once opened. The prices and the specs of the web hosting plans are fixed by the given web hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the company, the web hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting service and the typical shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" suppliers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to declare, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they actually depend on the business tactics of the given provider and, of course, the demands of the given customer.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the standard web hosting solution?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free website hosting corporations are not able to maintain a huge amount of web hosting servers, hence, they plainly host more users on a single web hosting server by decreasing the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web hosting servers are supervised and maintained appropriately, since the huge number of accounts may make the server crash over and over again. Most of the free website hosting distributors, though, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very tough to discover a free of cost website hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting companies typically provide free client support even to the free hosting clients, since they want their web portals to expand so that they eventually move to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. One such distributor, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and oldest free website hosting companies in the world.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting providers such as us, are able to keep numerous web servers and therefore, we may afford to offer much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting solution, though, does not automatically imply that this service has a finer quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the concrete service which you're getting. Moreover, we also offer a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of gratis web themes. As a web hosting firm, we do care about our reputation and this is the reason why if you choose us, you can rest assured that you won't get fooled into buying a plan that you cannot in fact use.

What should I expect from a web hosting service?

The web hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a standard web site, which is going to use a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business develops, your website will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (aka a private virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when choosing a hosting distributor, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate company, which can bring about site problems and even continued downtime for your website. If you go with Wholesale Hosting Club as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you lots of frustrations in the future.
