The most standard and regularly used form of web hosting is the hosting solution. It constitutes a way to host your website without having to be much informed about programming and running a web server. What's more, it's also the cheapest form of website hosting and it's indeed affordable for everyone. Nonetheless, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name denotes, the hosting solution is a sort of service where plenty of users share the system resources of one and the same hosting server. This indicates that all hosting server ingredients such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are shared among the clients whose accounts are on that very same web hosting server. This is usually rendered achievable by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and imposing given restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are appointed in order to prevent the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overloading. Normally, hosting clients do not have full root access to the web hosting server's config files, which essentially suggests that they cannot access anything else on the hosting server apart from their own website hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may resort to are determined by the web hosting firm that possesses the web hosting server and by the respective hosting package. That causes the second vital question:

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

Web hosting suppliers that supply hosting packages commonly have different web hosting plans. Those packages provide diverse amounts of website hosting features and specs, which actually set the restrictions that a website hosting account will have. The customer may select between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will befit him best. The web hosting package will then define what restrictions the client's account will have, once created. The costs and the specifications of the website hosting plans are set by the actual hosting company. Based on the policy of the supplier, the hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting solution and the standard shared solution, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" merchants as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to state, which one is better, since they are quite different from each other and they indeed depend on the marketing tactics of the particular distributor and, of course, the requirements of the given customer.

What is the contrast between the free and the typical hosting service?

Of course, the primary difference between the free of cost and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free website hosting vendors are not capable of keeping a huge number of servers, therefore, they merely accommodate more users on a single hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only if the web servers are monitored and administered appropriately, since the immense number of accounts may causer the web server to crash again and again. The majority of the free website hosting providers, though, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite tough to discover a free of charge website hosting service that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting suppliers normally provide free customer support even to the free web hosting clients, since they want their web sites to grow bigger so that they subsequently upgrade to a paid hosting plan, which includes more web hosting resources. One such provider, for instance, is, which is one of the biggest and eldest free web hosting firms in the world.

At the same time, established hosting distributors such as us, may afford to maintain multiple hosting servers and therefore, we are able to provide much more feature-rich website hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a hosting package, though, does not necessarily signify that this plan has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the actual service which you're receiving. Also, we also offer a free bonus with the web hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free website themes. As a website hosting firm, we do look after our reputation and that's why if you choose us, you can be certain that you won't get hoaxed into purchasing a service that you cannot in fact use.

What should I anticipate from a hosting service?

The hosting solution is best for persons who want to host a normal web site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of bandwidth each month. You cannot anticipate, however, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business gets bigger, your site will become more and more demanding. So, you will have to ultimately move to a more powerful website hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual private hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when selecting a web hosting vendor, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can bring about site predicaments and even extended downtime for your site. If you select Sulana Hosting as your website hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can provide you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is crucial and will spare you a lot of hassles in the future.
