The most primary and widely utilized sort of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It represents a means to host your web site without having to know much about programming and administrating a web hosting server. Besides, it's also the most economical type of hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name denotes, the web hosting service is a sort of service where numerous clients share the reserves of the same web server. This suggests that all web hosting server constituents like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs etc. are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that very same hosting server. This is normally rendered achievable by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and appointing certain restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are assigned in order to hinder the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overloading. Usually, web hosting clients do not have root access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which principally means that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server apart from their own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may use are set by the web hosting company that possesses the web server and by the respective website hosting package. That predetermines the second essential question:

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

Web hosting companies that deliver web hosting services normally have diverse website hosting packages. Those plans provide diverse amounts of hosting resources and specs, which actually set the restrictions that a website hosting plan will have. The customer may pick between the individual 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 client's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting packages are specified by the actual web hosting company. Based on the policy of the firm, the web hosting solution can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting solution and the typical shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" vendors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to tell, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they really are subject to the marketing policy of the given supplier and, of course, the demands of the specific client.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the standard web hosting service?

Of course, the essential difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the amount of features that they include. Free web hosting distributors are not capable of keeping an immense amount of hosting servers, hence, they just host more users on one server by reducing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the web servers are monitored and handled appropriately, since the huge amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash again and again. Most of the free web hosting vendors, though, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to come across a free website hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting vendors commonly provide free technical support even to the free website hosting users, since they want their websites to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid website hosting plan, which offers more web hosting resources. One such supplier, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free website hosting vendors in the world.

At the same time, traditional web hosting providers such as us, are able to keep a lot of web hosting servers and so, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a hosting service, though, does not necessarily denote that this package has a finer quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the actual service which you're getting. Also, we also offer a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary website skins. As a website hosting firm, we do worry about our good name and that's why if you pick us, you can rest assured that you won't get duped into buying a service that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for individuals who wish to host a standard web portal, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (aka a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when choosing a web hosting supplier, you should also ponder about scalability, otherwise you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different provider, which can bring about web site predicaments and even continued downtime for your web page. If you select CorrectHost as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will save you a lot of problems in the future.
