The most elemental and frequently utilized type of web hosting is the web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and administrating a web server. Furthermore, it's also the most inexpensive form of hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name denotes, the web hosting solution is a type of service where lots of clients share the reserves of the same web hosting server. This indicates that all hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are divided among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is typically made achievable by opening different accounts for the separate clients and imposing specific limits and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are allocated in order to prevent the customers from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the hosting server from overburdening. Typically, web hosting users do not have full root-level access to the web server's configuration files, which principally denotes that they cannot access anything else on the web hosting server beside their own personal web hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may resort to are fixed by the hosting corporation that possesses the web hosting server and by the given web hosting plan. That paves the way for the second important question:

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

Hosting providers that deliver web hosting accounts normally have various web hosting plans. Those plans provide diverse amounts of website hosting features and specifications, which actually determine the restrictions that a web hosting account will have. The user may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The web hosting package will then define what limits the customer's account will involve, once opened. The prices and the specifications of the website hosting packages are defined by the actual web hosting corporation. Based on the policy of the provider, the web hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the classic shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" suppliers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to claim, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they indeed are dependent on the marketing policy of the given provider and, of course, the needs of the given customer.

What is the contrast between the free and the typical web hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of features that they include. Free web hosting companies are not able to maintain a huge amount of web hosting servers, hence, they merely accommodate more customers on a single hosting server by reducing the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web servers are supervised and handled properly, because the enormous amount of accounts may make the web server crash again and again. Most of the free website hosting firms, though, overlook the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite difficult to come across a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting vendors normally provide free technical support even to the free website hosting clients, because they want their websites to get bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting account, which includes more website hosting features. Such provider, for instance, is, which is among the biggest and oldest free web hosting distributors worldwide.

At the same time, established web hosting distributors like us, may afford to keep lots of web hosting servers and so, we are able to offer much more powerful hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting plan, however, does not automatically signify that this package has a better quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that corresponds to the concrete service which you're obtaining. What's more, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of cost-free web design skins. As a website hosting distributor, we do worry about our reputation and that is the reason why if you choose us, you can be calm that you won't get fooled into buying a service that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting service?

The web hosting solution is best for people who are looking to host an average web portal, which is going to generate a small or medium amount of traffic every month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business gets bigger, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when choosing a hosting company, you should also think about scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a different provider, which can bring about website complications and even continuous downtime for your website. If you choose Sreda s.r.o. as your website hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of troubles in the future.
