The most principal and widely availed of type of web hosting is the hosting solution. It's a way to host your web page without having to understand much about programming and running a web server. Moreover, it's also the cheapest type of website hosting and it's quite affordable for anybody. However, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name signifies, the hosting service is a type of service where many customers share the resources of one and the same web hosting server. This implies that all hosting server constituents such as CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are allocated among the customers whose accounts are on that very same web hosting server. This is typically rendered viable by creating different accounts for the different users and setting specific limitations and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those limits are set so as to hinder the clients from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, hosting clients do not have root-level access to the server's configuration files, which primarily suggests that they do not have access to anything else on the web hosting server apart from their very own hosting account. The web hosting features that each account may utilize are fixed by the hosting distributor that possesses the hosting server and by the given hosting plan. That brings about the second essential question:

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

Hosting vendors that provide hosting solutions commonly have various web hosting packages. Those plans offer different quotas of website hosting resources and specs, which in fact set the limits that a hosting package will have. The user may pick between the different web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he thinks will befit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what limits the customer's account will involve, once created. The costs and the specs of the website hosting packages are set by the specific hosting supplier. Based on the policy of the provider, the hosting service can be divided into two categories - the free hosting service and the popular shared service, most recently very famous among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to judge, which one is more preferable, since they are quite different from one another and they indeed depend on the marketing policy of the given supplier and, of course, the demands of the given client.

What is the distinction between the free and the classic hosting solution?

Of course, the main difference between the free of charge and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they provide. Free website hosting corporations are not capable of keeping a large amount of hosting servers, hence, they just accommodate more users on one web hosting server by decreasing the quantity of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the servers are supervised and maintained properly, since the huge number of accounts may make the web server crash on a regular basis. Most of the free website hosting companies, however, ignore the quality of the service and therefore, it's quite hard to come across a free web hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting companies normally offer free technical support even to the free web hosting clients, since they want their sites to grow bigger so that they eventually migrate to a paid web hosting plan, which includes more website hosting features. One such supplier, for example, is, which is among the largest and eldest free website hosting suppliers worldwide.

On the other hand, traditional hosting companies such as us, are able to keep plenty of web servers and as a result, we may afford to offer much more feature-rich hosting packages. Of course, that influences the pricing of the website hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a website hosting package, however, does not automatically denote that this service has a better quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which offer a price that matches the real service which you're obtaining. In addition, we also give a free extra with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, complemented with hundreds of free-of-cost web page templates. As a website hosting companie, we do look after our reputation and that is the reason why if you select us, you can be calm that you won't get duped into purchasing an account that you cannot actually use.

What should I expect from a hosting service?

The hosting solution is best for individuals who would like to host an average web portal, which is going to swallow a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot anticipate, though, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, because as your business expands, your web portal will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually migrate to a more feature-rich web hosting service like a semi-dedicated packages, a VPS (aka a virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated package. So, when choosing a website hosting distributor, you should also reflect about scalability, otherwise you might end up migrating your domain manually to a separate distributor, which can bring about site troubles and even prolonged downtime for your site. If you pick Bisdak World Online Web Hosting as your website hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can supply you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you grow, is essential and will save you a lot of nuisances in the future.
