Shared Hosting Explanation
Shared hosting is a service that hosting suppliers provide so that you can put your web site on the web.
How can people access your website?
When you make a web site and you wish other persons to access it, you will need to publish (or upload) it to a web server. If you try to make the website available on the web by shared hosting it on your own PC, there is no way for you to keep it up and running all the time, which is why website hosting services came into being.
How does shared hosting work?
Web hosting distributors offer you hard disk space for your site on their high-end computers (servers) and ensure constant Internet access. When someone writes your web address (for example www.my-best-domain.com) in their browser's URL bar, they will be connected to the server where they can take a glance at the content of your web site.
With the progress of web technologies, several types of web hosting services have come into being to match the various expectations of website owners, among them shared website hosting services, private virtual server hosting services and dedicated server web hosting services.
Shared website hosting
Shared website hosting is the most commonly used form of hosting, and is also the easiest to begin with. It is a service where a single server is shared between multiple shared web hosting account owners who are restricted by the CPU, web traffic and content storage space quotas that they have been apportioned. This form of website hosting is typically cheaper - you don't need to purchase the whole web hosting server upfront, as it is shared between numerous web hosting clients, and the hosting company can afford to offer much more moderate prices. It is also much easier to use - the hosting server is pre-installed with all the required software and the hosting supplier takes care of all server maintenance procedures and security updates for you.
The setback of the shared website hosting solution is that you share the web hosting server's system resources with other users and if one website becomes really popular it may affect (and slow down) all the other sites on that web server, but most hosting providers, including us at eSolution Hosting, have protection platforms in place that prevent that from taking place.
A description of a website hosting service
Because shared website hosting is the most commonly used form of web hosting, the majority of web hosting firms and web hosting users simply call it web hosting or website hosting. As there is a great competition on the web hosting marketplace, most web hosting firms try to offer modest prices and gifts with their services. We, for example, offer different website hosting packages and two billing options - monthly and annual, depending on your resources. If you choose the annual invoicing cycle, you will receive a present - one free-of-charge domain name registration.
Virtual private servers plans
VPS is an abbreviation of Virtual Private Server. The Virtual private servers hosting solution is basically the middle ground between the shared hosting solution and the dedicated server hosting solution. If your website grows beyond the resources offered by your shared website hosting plan, a virtual server web hosting package is an excellent option. virtual server web hosting account owners still share the hardware resources of the physical server with other private virtual server hosting users, but the hard disk drive is partitioned using a special virtualization technology so that each partition has its own guaranteed resources and can be configured practically like a real dedicated web hosting server. The advantage is that the CPU and the memory on a VPS web hosting server are not shared. What's more, the virtualization technology offers you much more freedom to configure your VPS web hosting server, but it also calls for a higher degree of technical expertise.
With the Dedicated Server solution, the customer gets a whole hosting server and can utilize all its resources. The dedicated server web hosting solution is the most powerful of all web hosting solutions and offers lots of customization options - the dedicated server hosting clients can pick the hardware and software specifications that will fulfill their needs. Dedicated resources and no-holds-barred performance are two reasons why a dedicated server hosting package is an excellent choice for a high resource-devouring business web site, for instance - you will not share the hosting server's system resources with anyone else and will receive full server root privileges. You will exercise full control over the hosting server, which will allow you to implement any server configuration modifications that you might require. The weakness of the dedicated server hosting solution is that a more advanced level of technical know-how is required - unless you employ an Information Technology pro, it will be your responsibility to manage and configure the dedicated hosting server. The dedicated web hosting solution also costs much more, because the cost of the dedicated web server isn't shared among any other users.
A website hosting advice for beginner users
If you are just starting to create your website and are seeking a hosting solution to start out with, the shared hosting solution remains the most intelligent option. If your site grows beyond your web hosting account's resources, you can usually upgrade. With us, for example, this is extremely easy and does not involve migration of your website files, because only the features of your web hosting account change. You can also upgrade your website hosting package to a more advanced one at any given time without worrying about the number of days remaining until expiration. In addition, if you finally reach the most powerful shared website hosting package and still need more resources (which is a good thing sometimes - it signifies that your site's popularity has increased!), there always is the possibility to migrate to a VPS web hosting solution or a dedicated web hosting platform without needing to swap web hosting providers.
