The most standard and universally availed of sort of web hosting is the web hosting service. It's a way to host your web page without having to understand much about programming and managing a server. Moreover, it's also the most inexpensive type of web hosting and it's indeed affordable for everybody. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name implies, the web hosting service is a type of service where many clients share the reserves of the same web server. This indicates that all hosting server elements like CPU, hard drives, RAM, network cards etc. are allocated among the clients whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is typically rendered feasible by creating separate accounts for the separate clients and assigning given restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated in order to restrain the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the web server from overburdening. Usually, web hosting clients do not have complete root access to the server's configuration files, which principally goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the web server beside their own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are determined by the hosting distributor that possesses the server and by the respective website hosting package. That entails the second important question:

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

Hosting providers that distribute web hosting packages normally have different web hosting packages. Those plans involve diverse quotas of web hosting features and specs, which in fact fix the restrictions that a website hosting account will have. The client may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what restrictions the customer's account will include, once created. The prices and the features of the web hosting plans are specified by the given hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the supplier, the web hosting solution can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting service and the normal shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" retailers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to allege, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they actually depend on the business tactics of the given distributor and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the difference between the free and the popular web hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they include. Free website hosting distributors are not able to maintain an enormous amount of hosting servers, therefore, they just host more customers on one server by reducing the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web servers are monitored and tackled properly, because the large number of accounts may make the web server crash time and time again. Most of the free web hosting corporations, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to discover a free of cost web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting companies commonly provide free technical support even to the free web hosting users, since they want their sites to expand so that they subsequently move to a paid web hosting account, which includes more hosting features. One such firm, for example, is, which is one of the biggest and oldest free hosting corporations worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting corporations like us, may afford to maintain numerous web hosting servers and therefore, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich web hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting solution, however, does not necessarily imply that this service has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that corresponds to the real service which you're getting. Additionally, we also give a free bonus with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-cost web page templates. As a web hosting distributor, we do look after our good name and that's why if you pick us, you can be calm that you won't get fooled into paying for a package that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a normal site, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. So, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a private virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. So, when picking a website hosting provider, you should also think about scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a different vendor, which can create web site problems and even continued downtime for your web portal. If you pick Supernet Domains as your website hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will spare you a lot of hassles in the future.
