The most standard and regularly used kind of web hosting is the web hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your website without having to know much about programming and administrating a web hosting server. In addition, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name suggests, the web hosting service is a form of service where lots of customers share the reserves of one and the same hosting server. This suggests that all hosting server elements such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network cards etc. are shared among the customers whose accounts are on that same web server. This is mostly rendered accomplishable by setting up separate accounts for the different clients and allocating given limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set so as to hinder the users from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Typically, web hosting customers do not have root-level access to the web server's config files, which essentially goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the server beside their very own hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may utilize are determined by the hosting firm that owns the server and by the particular website hosting plan. That leads to the second important question:

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

Web hosting distributors that distribute web hosting solutions commonly have diverse web hosting packages. Those packages involve different amounts of hosting resources and specs, which actually set the restrictions that a web hosting package will include. The client may select between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The hosting package will then define what limitations the customer's account will have, once opened. The prices and the specs of the website hosting plans are fixed by the actual hosting supplier. Depending on the policy of the provider, the web hosting service can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting service and the standard shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" merchandisers 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 actually depend on the marketing policy of the specific firm and, of course, the requirements of the given client.

What is the distinction between the free of cost and the standard web hosting solution?

Of course, the chief 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 a big amount of web hosting servers, therefore, they plainly host more customers on one single server by lowering the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only if the hosting servers are monitored and handled appropriately, because the immense number of accounts may cause the server to crash time and time again. Most of the free web hosting providers, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's very difficult to discover a free of cost hosting solution that's in fact worth the effort. The top free hosting corporations normally offer free customer support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their websites to get bigger so that they subsequently migrate to a paid website hosting plan, which offers more web hosting resources. Such provider, for instance, is FreeHostia.com, which is among the biggest and eldest free web hosting corporations worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting distributors like us, are able to keep plenty of servers and hence, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich hosting plans. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting account, however, does not necessarily mean that this package has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a price that matches the concrete service which you're getting. What's more, we also provide a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of cost-free web skins. As a website hosting vendor, we do worry about our reputation and this is the reason why if you choose us, you can rest assured that you won't get swindled into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for individuals who are looking to host a normal web page, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business gets bigger, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Therefore, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting service like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (also known as a virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when choosing a web 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 website complications and even extended downtime for your site. If you go with Bookeers Bulgaria as your web hosting company, 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 lots of headaches in the future.
