The most primary and universally utilized variety of web hosting is the hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your website without having to know much about programming and handling a hosting server. Additionally, it's also the cheapest type of website hosting and it's quite affordable for everybody. Nevertheless, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name suggests, the hosting service is a sort of service where plenty of clients share the resources of the same web hosting server. This goes to say that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, network interface cards and so on, are allotted among the clients whose accounts are on that same web server. This is usually rendered tenable by setting up different accounts for the different clients and imposing some limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limitations are set in order to restrain the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the server from overloading. Usually, hosting customers do not have complete root-level access to the server's configuration files, which principally implies that they do not have access to anything else on the server but their own personal hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are set by the hosting corporation that possesses the web server and by the given website hosting plan. That predetermines the second essential question:

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

Web hosting distributors that deliver hosting services normally have different website hosting packages. Those packages involve different quotas of website hosting resources and specs, which actually define the limitations that a website hosting account will have. The client may select between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The hosting plan will then determine what limitations the customer's account will involve, once created. The prices and the features of the web hosting packages are specified by the particular web hosting company. Depending on the policy of the firm, the hosting service can be divided into 2 types - the free hosting service and the common shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" companies as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to affirm, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they actually are dependent on the marketing tactics of the given corporation and, of course, the needs of the given user.

What is the difference between the free of cost and the popular hosting service?

Of course, the main difference between the free and the paid solution is in the quantity of features that they offer. Free web hosting suppliers are not capable of maintaining a big amount of servers, therefore, they merely host more customers on one single hosting server by reducing the quantity of system resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only on condition that the servers are supervised and handled properly, because the immense number of accounts may make the web hosting server crash regularly. Most of the free web hosting providers, though, ignore the quality of the service and as a result, it's very difficult to find a free website hosting solution that's actually worth the time. The top free hosting corporations commonly provide free client support even to the free hosting users, because they want their websites to enlarge so that they subsequently migrate to a paid web hosting account, which includes more website hosting resources. Such supplier, for example, is, which is one of the largest and oldest free web hosting companies in the world.

On the other hand, established hosting suppliers like us, are able to keep multiple web servers and therefore, we are able to offer much more powerful web hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the cost of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting solution, however, does not automatically mean that this service has a better quality. The best services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the actual service which you're obtaining. Additionally, we also offer a free extra with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of cost-free website themes. As a website hosting corporation, we do look after our reputation and that is the reason why if you select us, you can rest calm that you won't get hoaxed into purchasing a service that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I anticipate from a hosting solution?

The hosting solution is best for people who wish to host an average site, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of bandwidth every month. You cannot expect, however, that a hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business enlarges, your web page will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more powerful hosting service like a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (aka a virtual server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when choosing a website hosting vendor, you should also consider scalability, or else you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can create web site predicaments and even continued downtime for your site. If you select EUROLATINAMERICAhost as your website hosting provider, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is crucial and will spare you lots of frustrations in the future.
