The most basic and widely utilized variety of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and administrating a server. Furthermore, it's also the cheapest type of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for everyone. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name indicates, the web hosting service is a kind of service where a lot of clients share the reserves of one and the same server. This suggests that all hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards etc. are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mostly rendered accomplishable by creating different accounts for the different customers and fixing given restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated in order to prevent the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overloading. Typically, web hosting customers do not have root access to the server's config files, which principally suggests that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server aside from their own web hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may avail of are determined by the hosting company that possesses the web hosting server and by the particular web hosting plan. That entails the second vital question:

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

Hosting corporations that provide web hosting solutions typically have different hosting packages. Those plans offer different quotas of hosting features and specs, which actually determine the limits that a web hosting plan will include. The customer may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The web hosting package will then define what limitations the user's account will include, once opened. The prices and the specifications of the web hosting plans are chosen by the very hosting supplier. Based on the politics of the supplier, the web hosting service can be divided into two types - the free hosting service and the standard shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to state, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they indeed depend on the business tactics of the particular company and, of course, the requirements of the particular user.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the typical web hosting solution?

Of course, the major difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they include. Free website hosting suppliers are not able to keep an immense amount of web servers, hence, they just host more users on one web hosting server by decreasing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web hosting servers are supervised and maintained properly, because the huge number of accounts may causer the web server to crash repeatedly. The majority of the free website hosting vendors, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite hard to find a free web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations typically offer free client support even to the free hosting clients, because they want their web portals to grow so that they subsequently migrate to a paid website hosting package, which offers more website hosting resources. One such firm, for instance, is, which is among the biggest and eldest free website hosting companies in the world.

At the same time, traditional web hosting providers like us, may afford to keep lots of web hosting servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting solution, though, does not necessarily imply that this package has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. What's more, we also offer a free extra with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of charge-free templates. As a website hosting corporation, we do care about our reputation and this is the reason why if you go with us, you can be confident that you won't get duped into buying a package that you cannot in fact make use of.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for persons who want to host a basic site, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (also known as a virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. So, when selecting a website hosting distributor, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a different company, which can bring about website complications and even continued downtime for your web page. If you pick ISACT WEB HOST as your hosting company, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will spare you a lot of problems in the future.
