The most basic and universally used form of web hosting is the hosting service. It's a means to host your web page without having to be much informed about programming and handling a web server. In addition to this, it's also the cheapest form of hosting and it's indeed affordable for anybody. Nevertheless, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name implies, the hosting service is a sort of service where numerous clients share the system reserves of one and the same web server. This goes to say that all web server ingredients such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are apportioned among the customers whose accounts are on that very same server. This is typically made tenable by setting up different accounts for the separate users and setting given limits and quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are allocated so as to prevent the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Normally, hosting clients do not have root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which basically goes to say that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server aside from their very own hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may use are determined by the hosting distributor that possesses the server and by the particular web hosting package. That gives rise to the second important question:

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

Web hosting distributors that deliver hosting plans normally have various website hosting plans. Those plans involve diverse quotas of website hosting resources and specifications, which actually fix the limits that a website hosting package will have. The user may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will suit him best. The hosting package will then determine what limits the client's account will have, once created. The costs and the specifications of the hosting plans are fixed by the actual hosting provider. Depending on the politics of the firm, the hosting solution falls into two categories - the free hosting solution and the common shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to assert, which one is better, since they are quite different from one another and they indeed are determined by the business policy of the specific company and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

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

Of course, the principal difference between the free of cost and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free website hosting companies are not capable of maintaining an immense number of hosting servers, therefore, they plainly accommodate more users on a single hosting server by lowering the quantity of resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are supervised and dealt with appropriately, since the huge number of accounts may make the web hosting server crash on a regular basis. Most of the free website hosting companies, though, neglect the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite difficult to discover a free of charge website hosting service that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers commonly provide free client support even to the free website hosting users, because they want their websites to grow so that they eventually migrate to a paid website hosting plan, which includes more website hosting features. One such company, for example, is FreeHostia.com, which is one of the largest and oldest free website hosting distributors worldwide.

On the other hand, established hosting corporations like us, may afford to keep lots of web hosting servers and as a result, we may afford to provide much more feature-rich web hosting plans. Of course, that influences the cost of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting package, however, does not automatically imply that this package has a finer quality. The most optimal solutions are the balanced ones, which involve a fee that matches the concrete service which you're obtaining. In addition, we also give a free extra with the web hosting plan, such as the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of fee-free site themes. As a website hosting supplier, we do care about our good name and that's why if you select us, you can be certain that you won't get fooled into paying for a plan that you cannot actually make use of.

What should I expect from a hosting service?

The hosting solution is best for persons who want to host an average website, which is going to consume a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business grows, your web site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately move to a more feature-rich web hosting solution like a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (aka a virtual private web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when choosing a website hosting company, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up moving your domain manually to a separate company, which can bring about web site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your web portal. If you pick THEGOGOGO.COM Web Hosting as your web hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will spare you a lot of problems in the future.
