The most primary and frequently availed of type of web hosting is the web hosting service. It constitutes a means to host your site without having to know much about programming and handling a hosting server. In addition to this, it's also the most economical type of website hosting and it's very affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting service is a kind of service where a lot of clients share the system resources of the same web hosting server. This suggests that all hosting server ingredients such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, NICs etc. are apportioned among the clients whose accounts are on that same web hosting server. This is normally made accomplishable by creating different accounts for the different customers and imposing given restrictions and quotas for each of them. Those limits are appointed in order to prevent the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overburdening. Normally, web hosting customers do not have complete root access to the web hosting server's config files, which essentially suggests that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server aside from their very own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may avail of are set by the web hosting vendor that possesses the web 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 customers?

Web hosting firms that offer web hosting packages usually have diverse web hosting packages. Those plans include diverse amounts of web hosting features and specifications, which actually define the limitations that a web hosting package will include. The client may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what limits the user's account will include, once opened. The costs and the specs of the hosting packages are determined by the very web hosting company. Depending on the politics of the distributor, the web hosting solution falls into 2 types - the free hosting service and the popular shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" sellers 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 indeed depend on the business policy of the specific distributor and, of course, the requirements of the specific customer.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the normal web hosting solution?

Of course, the primary difference between the free and the paid service is in the quantity of features that they contain. Free website hosting vendors are not able to keep a huge amount of web hosting servers, hence, they merely host more customers on one web server by lowering the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only if the servers are kept under surveillance and dealt with appropriately, because the big amount of accounts may make the hosting server crash time and time again. The majority of the free web hosting vendors, however, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's very hard to come across a free web hosting service that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting vendors normally offer free client support even to the free web hosting customers, since they want their websites to expand so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid website hosting plan, which offers more web hosting features. One such firm, for instance, is, which is among the biggest and oldest free web hosting suppliers in the world.

On the other hand, traditional web hosting corporations such as us, may afford to keep multiple web servers and so, we may afford to provide much more powerful web hosting packages. Of course, that affects the cost of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting account, though, does not automatically imply that this account has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're obtaining. Moreover, we also give a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of free design templates. As a web hosting companie, we do care about our reputation and this is the reason why if you select us, you can rest calm that you won't get swindled into paying for an account that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting service is best for persons who wish to host an average site, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows, your website will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to eventually upgrade to a more feature-rich website hosting solution like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a private virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when picking a web hosting supplier, you should also ponder about scalability, otherwise you might end up relocating your domain manually to a different vendor, which can create site predicaments and even extended downtime for your web portal. If you select Juwi Cloud as your website hosting vendor, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will save you a lot of hassles in the future.
