An explanation of hosting

The most primary and commonly availed of kind of web hosting is the shared web hosting service. It's a way to host your web portal without having to understand much about programming and managing a hosting server. In addition, it's also the cheapest form of web space hosting and it's very affordable for anybody. Nevertheless, what is shared webspace hosting?

What is shared web space hosting?

As the name hints, the shared web space hosting service is a form of service where multiple customers share the reserves of one and the same web hosting server. This means that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is typically made attainable by opening separate accounts for the separate customers and assigning certain restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are applied so as to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web server from overloading. Usually, shared hosting users do not have full root-level access to the server's configuration files, which essentially means that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server apart from their very own shared hosting account. The web page hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the web hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the given site hosting package. That brings on the second essential question:

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

Hosting corporations that deliver shared web space hosting solutions normally have diverse hosting packages. Those packages include diverse amounts of webspace hosting features and specifications, which actually fix the restrictions that a hosting plan will include. The customer may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The website hosting package will then define what limits the user's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specs of the webspace hosting packages are defined by the particular web hosting company. Based on the politics of the company, the shared webspace hosting service falls into two categories - the free hosting solution and the standard shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to declare, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they actually are subject to the marketing tactics of the particular supplier and, of course, the demands of the specific client.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the regular shared site hosting solution?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free site hosting firms are not able to maintain a huge amount of web servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more customers on one hosting server by lowering the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are monitored and maintained appropriately, because the immense amount of accounts may make the server crash time and time again. Most of the free web site hosting firms, however, overlook the quality of the service and hence, it's very difficult to come across a free web site hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting firms usually provide free client support even to the free hosting customers, since they want their web sites to get bigger so that they subsequently move to a paid web space hosting package, which offers more webspace hosting features. One such firm, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free web hosting suppliers worldwide.

At the same time, traditional shared web hosting firms such as Incite Graphics, for instance, are able to keep plenty of hosting servers and therefore, they may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the site hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a site hosting service, however, does not automatically imply that this plan has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the real service which you're getting. The first-class website hosting firms that have been around for quite some time are listing their prices and package specs in a realistic manner, so that the client may acquainted with what in fact he is getting. In addition, some of these provide a free extra with the webspace hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free design layouts that are provided by 'Incite Graphics'. Such web space hosting corporations do worry about their good name and that's why if you select them, you can rest confident that you won't get duped into buying a service that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a shared website hosting service?

The shared hosting solution is best for individuals who wish to host an average web site, which is going to use a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared site hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your web site will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich hosting service such as a semi-dedicated server, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or why not a dedicated server. So, when selecting a web site hosting provider, you should also ponder about how they can be of service to you, or else you might end up moving your domain name manually to a separate company, which can create website complications and even continuous downtime for your site. Hence, going with a webspace hosting supplier like 'Incite Graphics', which can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will save you lots of hassles in the future.
