The most basic and widely used variety of web hosting is the website hosting solution. It's a means to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and running a hosting server. In addition to that, it's also the most economical type of web hosting and it's very affordable for anybody. However, what is website hosting?

What is website hosting?

As the name denotes, the website hosting solution is a form of service where numerous customers share the reserves of one and the same server. This signifies that all hosting server components such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network interface cards etc. are shared among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is mainly made accomplishable by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and imposing given restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are fixed in order to prevent the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Usually, website hosting clients do not have complete root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which primarily signifies that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server but their own personal web hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may resort to are set by the web hosting vendor that owns the hosting server and by the respective website hosting package. That results in the second important question:

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

Web hosting distributors that provide website hosting plans usually have different website hosting plans. Those packages involve different amounts of website hosting resources and specifications, which actually determine the restrictions that a website hosting package will include. The client may pick between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The website hosting package will then determine what limitations the user's account will involve, once created. The costs and the specs of the web hosting plans are set by the very web hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the supplier, the website hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting service and the regular shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" firms as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from one another and they actually are determined by the marketing tactics of the given supplier and, of course, the demands of the given customer.

What is the contrast between the free and the regular website hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free website hosting firms are not able to keep a huge number of web servers, hence, they just accommodate more users on one web hosting server by lowering the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are monitored and tackled appropriately, since the great amount of accounts may cause the server to crash regularly. The majority of the free website hosting companies, though, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's very difficult to come across a free of charge web hosting service that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting companies normally offer free customer support even to the free hosting customers, because they want their sites to get bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid web hosting account, which offers more web hosting features. One such corporation, for instance, is, which is one of the largest and eldest free hosting suppliers in the world.

At the same time, traditional website hosting suppliers such as us, are able to maintain a lot of hosting servers and so, we are able to provide much more feature-rich hosting plans. Of course, that affects the pricing of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a web hosting service, however, does not automatically signify that this solution has a better quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the real service which you're obtaining. Additionally, we also provide a free extra with the web hosting plan, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of fee-free web page themes. As a website hosting supplier, we do care about our reputation and this is the reason why if you pick us, you can rest certain that you won't get duped into paying for a plan that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I anticipate from a website hosting solution?

The website hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a basic web site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a website hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business enlarges, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (a.k.a. a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. Therefore, when choosing a web hosting company, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can create website problems and even prolonged downtime for your web portal. If you go with Real Tech Hosting as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is crucial and will save you a lot of inconveniences in the long run.
