As the name indicates, the website hosting service is a kind of service where many users share the system resources of the same web hosting server. This denotes that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards and so on, are divided among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is usually rendered accomplishable by opening different accounts for the separate users and setting given limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are imposed so as to restrain the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Normally, website hosting users do not have complete root-level access to the web hosting server's config files, which essentially implies that they do not have access to anything else on the web server aside from their own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are set by the hosting company that owns the web server and by the given web hosting package. That necessitates the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the users?

Hosting vendors that deliver website hosting packages typically have various website hosting plans. Those packages include diverse quotas of website hosting features and specs, which in fact define the limits that a web hosting account will have. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The web hosting package will then define what limits the user's account will involve, once set up. The prices and the specs of the web hosting plans are specified by the very hosting supplier. Depending on the politics of the vendor, the website hosting solution falls into two types - the free hosting solution and the classic shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from each other and they really are determined by the marketing policy of the specific company and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the classic website hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they involve. Free website hosting providers are not capable of keeping an immense number of hosting servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more clients on a single server by decreasing the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the servers are monitored and maintained properly, since the great amount of accounts may cause the web hosting server to crash again and again. Most of the free website hosting firms, however, overlook the quality of the service and as a result, it's very tough to discover a free website hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting companies typically provide free technical support even to the free website hosting customers, since they want their web portals to expand so that they subsequently migrate to a paid hosting account, which includes more web hosting resources. One such firm, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the biggest and oldest free website hosting corporations worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional website hosting providers like us, may afford to maintain lots of web servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the pricing of the hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting solution, though, does not automatically denote that this package has a finer quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're getting. What's more, we also provide a free extra with the website hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of fee-free design themes. As a web hosting supplier, we do worry about our reputation and that's why if you pick us, you can be assured that you won't get tricked into buying a service that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I expect from a website hosting service?

The website hosting solution is best for people who want to host a standard website, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a website hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business enlarges, your web page will become more and more demanding. Hence, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (aka a virtual web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. So, when choosing a web hosting vendor, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up transferring your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can create website complications and even continuous downtime for your site. If you choose Wise Pro Solutions as your website hosting company, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will spare you a lot of inconveniences in the future.
