The most standard and universally availed of sort of web hosting is the web hosting service. It represents a way to host your web portal without having to be much informed about programming and operating a hosting server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive form of web hosting and it's very affordable for everyone. However, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name signifies, the web hosting solution is a type of service where lots of users share the resources of the same web server. This goes to say that all web hosting server ingredients like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are split among the customers whose accounts are on that same server. This is typically rendered achievable by opening separate accounts for the different clients and applying specific restrictions and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set in order to hinder the users from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overloading. Normally, web hosting users do not have full root-level access to the web server's config files, which primarily signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the server beside their own personal web hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may resort to are fixed by the hosting supplier that owns the server and by the respective web hosting plan. That predetermines the second vital question:

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

Web hosting providers that supply web hosting plans commonly have different website hosting plans. Those packages offer diverse amounts of website hosting features and specs, which actually fix the restrictions that a website hosting plan will have. The customer may choose between the separate web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will befit him best. The web hosting plan will then determine what limitations the user's account will include, once set up. The costs and the specs of the website hosting packages are defined by the particular hosting distributor. Depending on the policy of the firm, the web hosting solution falls into two categories - the free hosting service and the regular shared solution, most recently very popular among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they really are dependent on the marketing policy of the particular vendor and, of course, the demands of the particular user.

What is the difference between the free of charge and the standard web hosting service?

Of course, the chief difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of resources that they offer. Free hosting firms are not capable of keeping a huge number of web hosting servers, hence, they simply accommodate more users on one server by decreasing the amount of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web servers are kept under surveillance and tackled properly, since the big number of accounts may make the hosting server crash over and over again. Most of the free web hosting suppliers, though, neglect the quality of the service and hence, it's quite tough to come across a free website hosting solution that's actually worth the effort. The top free hosting suppliers typically offer free customer support even to the free web hosting clients, because they want their websites to grow so that they subsequently move to a paid website hosting account, which includes more web hosting resources. One such distributor, for instance, is, which is among the largest and eldest free website hosting firms in the world.

At the same time, traditional web hosting corporations such as us, are able to maintain numerous web servers and so, we may afford to offer much more powerful hosting packages. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher price for a website hosting solution, though, does not automatically signify that this package has a finer quality. The most advantageous solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the real service which you're obtaining. Furthermore, we also provide a free bonus with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of complimentary website layouts. As a website hosting companie, we do look after our good name and that is the reason why if you choose us, you can be certain that you won't get swindled into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact utilize.

What should I expect from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for those who wish to host a normal site, which is going to utilize a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business grows bigger, your web portal will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually migrate to a more powerful web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated web hosting, a VPS web hosting (aka a virtual private web server, or VPS), or even a dedicated web hosting. Therefore, when picking a web hosting supplier, you should also ponder about scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate supplier, which can cause website predicaments and even continuous downtime for your site. If you go with CASHsystem Worldwide Hosting as your hosting supplier, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow, is vital and will spare you lots of nuisances in the long run.
