Shared Website Hosting Description

The most standard and frequently availed of variety of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It represents a way to host your website without having to know much about programming and administering a hosting server. What's more, it's also the most economical form of hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting solution is a kind of service where multiple users share the resources of one and the same web hosting server. This signifies that all web server ingredients such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are split among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mainly made achievable by creating separate accounts for the separate clients and setting some restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are fixed so as to hinder the customers from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web hosting server from overburdening. Normally, web hosting clients do not have full root access to the web hosting server's config files, which primarily suggests that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server but their own personal hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may utilize are set by the web hosting vendor that possesses the server and by the given web hosting plan. That paves the way for the second vital question:

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

Web hosting vendors that supply web hosting packages typically have different web hosting packages. Those packages include different amounts of website hosting features and specifications, which in fact set the limitations that a website hosting plan will include. The customer may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The web hosting package will then define what limitations the user's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the features of the website hosting plans are set by the particular hosting supplier. Depending on the policy of the company, the web hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the classic shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they actually depend on the business tactics of the given provider and, of course, the needs of the particular user.

What is the distinction between the free and the normal web hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they contain. Free web hosting vendors are not able to maintain a big number of servers, therefore, they merely host more clients on one hosting server by reducing the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the hosting servers are supervised and handled appropriately, since the immense number of accounts may make the server crash time and time again. Most of the free hosting providers, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite hard to come across a free web hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting firms usually offer free customer support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their web sites to grow bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid web hosting plan, which offers more website hosting resources. One such provider, for instance, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free hosting companies in the world.

On the other hand, established web hosting suppliers like us, may afford to maintain multiple hosting servers and so, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting solution, though, does not necessarily signify that this service has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're getting. What's more, we also provide a free bonus with the hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary website themes. As a website hosting firm, we do look after our good name and that's why if you go with us, you can rest confident that you won't get hoaxed into buying a service that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for individuals who want to host a basic web portal, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business develops, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when picking a web hosting distributor, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate company, which can cause site complications and even continued downtime for your web portal. If you choose Somali Hosting LTD as your website hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will save you a lot of annoyances in the future.
