The most fundamental and universally utilized kind of web hosting is the hosting service. It's a means to host your site without having to know much about programming and administrating a web hosting server. In addition, it's also the most inexpensive form of website hosting and it's in fact affordable for everybody. Still, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name indicates, the hosting service is a form of service where lots of users share the resources of the same hosting server. This goes to say that all hosting server ingredients like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that same web server. This is mostly made accomplishable by setting up different accounts for the separate customers and appointing specific limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are assigned so as to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Typically, hosting users do not have full root access to the web server's config files, which primarily goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the web server beside their own personal web hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may use are determined by the web hosting supplier that owns the server and by the particular web hosting plan. That causes the second vital question:

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

Web hosting providers that furnish hosting packages normally have various web hosting packages. Those plans provide diverse quotas of website hosting features and specs, which in fact fix the limitations that a web hosting package will have. The user may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will befit him best. The hosting package will then define what limits the user's account will have, once opened. The prices and the specs of the website hosting plans are specified by the specific hosting firm. Depending on the politics of the firm, the hosting service can be divided into two groups - the free hosting service and the common shared solution, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to declare, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they actually are determined by the marketing policy of the particular provider and, of course, the demands of the given customer.

What is the difference between the free and the typical hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free website hosting corporations are not able to keep a big number of web servers, hence, they simply host more clients on one single web server by lowering the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only in case the hosting servers are supervised and dealt with appropriately, since the big number of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash frequently. Most of the free web hosting companies, though, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's very tough to come across a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting providers typically provide free client support even to the free web hosting clients, because they want their sites to grow so that they eventually move to a paid hosting plan, which includes more website hosting resources. Such company, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the largest and oldest free website hosting providers in the world.

On the other hand, established hosting distributors such as us, are able to maintain multiple web servers and so, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich website hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting service, however, does not automatically imply that this service has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the concrete service which you're receiving. Moreover, we also give a free extra with the web hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of gratis website themes. As a web hosting firm, we do look after our good name and this is the reason why if you go with us, you can be assured that you won't get swindled into purchasing an account that you cannot actually use.

What should I anticipate from a hosting service?

The hosting service is best for those who would like to host an average web site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business enlarges, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated packages, a VPS (aka a private virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated package. So, when selecting a website hosting company, you should also ponder about scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can cause web site predicaments and even prolonged downtime for your web portal. If you go with Supreme BroadBand Hosting as your web hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will save you a lot of difficulties in the long run.
