The most standard and universally availed of form of web hosting is the shared hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and administrating a server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive form of hosting and it's in fact affordable for anybody. Nevertheless, what is shared hosting?

What is shared hosting?

As the name denotes, the shared hosting solution is a kind of service where multiple customers share the resources of the same server. This suggests that all server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that same web server. This is usually rendered feasible by creating separate accounts for the separate users and fixing certain limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are imposed so as to restrain the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Typically, shared hosting clients do not have root-level access to the server's config files, which basically means that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server beside their own hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the web hosting vendor that possesses the web hosting server and by the particular web hosting package. That leads up to the second important question:

How are the shared hosting servers split among the clients?

Web hosting firms that deliver shared hosting accounts typically have different website hosting packages. Those plans include diverse amounts of website hosting features and specs, which actually fix the restrictions that a web hosting package will have. The user may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will fit him best. The web hosting plan will then define what limitations the customer's account will include, once set up. The prices and the features of the website hosting packages are chosen by the given hosting corporation. Based on the politics of the corporation, the shared hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting solution and the normal shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" traders as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to state, which one is better, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are subject to the business policy of the given firm and, of course, the demands of the particular client.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the regular shared hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free web hosting distributors are not able to keep an enormous amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more customers on a single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web hosting servers are monitored and administered properly, because the large amount of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash again and again. Most of the free website hosting firms, though, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite tough to stumble upon a free website hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting distributors usually provide free client support even to the free web hosting users, since they want their web sites to grow so that they eventually move to a paid web hosting account, which includes more website hosting resources. Such provider, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and eldest free web hosting companies worldwide.

On the other hand, established shared hosting suppliers such as us, may afford to maintain numerous servers and as a result, we may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting package, though, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're getting. What's more, we also offer a free extra with the web hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of fee-free skins. As a website hosting companie, we do care about our good name and this is the reason why if you choose us, you can rest certain that you won't get fooled into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a shared hosting solution?

The shared hosting solution is best for persons who would like to host an average web portal, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, though, that a shared hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business develops, your web site will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful web hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a virtual private servers (also known as a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a hosting distributor, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a different supplier, which can create website problems and even continuous downtime for your site. If you choose Beyond Real Hosting as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of inconveniences in the future.
