The most elemental and regularly availed of sort of web hosting is the web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your website without having to understand much about programming and managing a hosting server. Moreover, it's also the cheapest type of website hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting service is a form of service where plenty of clients share the reserves of the same web hosting server. This implies that all server constituents like CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are apportioned among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is normally made tenable by creating separate accounts for the separate customers and imposing specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are applied in order to prevent the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Usually, web hosting customers do not have full root access to the server's configuration files, which essentially denotes that they do not have access to anything else on the server but their own web hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may avail of are set by the hosting distributor that possesses the hosting server and by the particular website hosting plan. That predetermines the second vital question:

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

Web hosting providers that offer web hosting services normally have different website hosting plans. Those packages contain different quotas of website hosting resources and specifications, which actually determine the limitations that a website hosting plan will have. The client may choose between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will befit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what limits the client's account will include, once opened. The costs and the specs of the web hosting plans are chosen by the very web hosting corporation. Based on the policy of the firm, the web hosting service can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the regular shared service, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" firms 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 are determined by the marketing tactics of the particular distributor and, of course, the requirements of the particular customer.

What is the contrast between the free of charge and the normal web hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of charge and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they involve. Free website hosting vendors are not able to maintain a huge number of web servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more customers on one single hosting server by lowering the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web hosting servers are monitored and dealt with properly, since the enormous amount of accounts may causer the web server to crash frequently. Most of the free hosting vendors, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's very hard to come across a free of cost web hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting firms typically provide free technical support even to the free web hosting customers, since they want their web portals to enlarge so that they subsequently move to a paid web hosting package, which includes more web hosting features. Such supplier, for instance, is, which is among the largest and eldest free website hosting providers worldwide.

On the other hand, established web hosting providers like us, are able to keep multiple hosting servers and hence, we may afford to provide much more powerful website hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting service, however, does not automatically imply that this service has a better quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete 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 100's of free-of-charge site templates. As a website hosting provider, we do look after our reputation and this is the reason why if you select us, you can rest calm that you won't get deceived into paying for a service that you cannot actually avail of.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting service?

The web hosting service is best for persons who would like to host a normal web page, which is going to use a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a web hosting account will last you a lifetime, because as your business grows bigger, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more powerful web hosting service such as a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (aka a virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when selecting a web hosting provider, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up relocating your domain manually to a different company, which can bring about site problems and even extended downtime for your web site. If you choose Isle Hosting as your website hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is vital and will save you lots of difficulties in the long run.
