As the name implies, the hosting solution is a sort of service where many users share the system reserves of the same web server. This indicates that all hosting server components like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are divided among the users whose accounts are on that very same web hosting server. This is normally made attainable by creating separate accounts for the separate users and fixing specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are appointed in order to prevent the clients from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Typically, hosting clients do not have root access to the hosting server's configuration files, which basically denotes that they cannot access anything else on the server aside from their own personal hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may use are fixed by the web hosting corporation that owns the hosting server and by the respective web hosting package. That results in the second vital question:

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

Hosting suppliers that supply hosting services commonly have various website hosting plans. Those plans involve diverse quotas of website hosting resources and specifications, which actually fix the restrictions that a hosting plan will have. The client may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what restrictions the client's account will involve, once created. The prices and the specs of the website hosting plans are specified by the given web hosting supplier. Based on the policy of the distributor, the hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting service and the common shared service, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they indeed are dependent on the business strategy of the given provider and, of course, the requirements of the specific client.

What is the contrast between the free of cost and the common hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the quantity of resources that they provide. Free website hosting vendors are not able to keep a great amount of hosting servers, hence, they plainly host more users on a single hosting server by lowering the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the hosting servers are supervised and maintained properly, since the great number of accounts may causer the web server to crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free website hosting companies, however, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to find a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting companies commonly provide free technical support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their web portals to grow bigger so that they eventually upgrade to a paid hosting plan, which includes more web hosting resources. Such distributor, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free hosting corporations worldwide.

At the same time, established hosting distributors like us, may afford to keep lots of web servers and hence, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting solution, however, does not automatically signify that this package has a finer quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're getting. Also, we also give a free bonus with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of complimentary site templates. As a website hosting companie, we do worry about our good name and that's why if you choose us, you can rest assured that you won't get deluded into purchasing a package that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I anticipate from a hosting service?

The hosting service is best for those who desire to host a basic web site, which is going to use a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows bigger, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich hosting service such as a semi-dedicated packages, a VPS (a.k.a. a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated package. So, when choosing a website hosting provider, you should also ponder about scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a different company, which can create web site predicaments and even prolonged downtime for your site. If you pick Javis Intl Web Hosting as your web hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you a lot of annoyances in the long run.
