The most standard and widely utilized type of web hosting is the hosting solution. It constitutes a means to host your site without having to understand much about programming and handling a server. Besides, it's also the most inexpensive form of hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. Nevertheless, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name suggests, the hosting service is a form of service where a lot of users share the reserves of the same hosting server. This signifies that all hosting server ingredients such as CPU, hard disks, RAM, network cards and so on, are distributed among the users whose accounts are on that same web server. This is typically made feasible by creating different accounts for the separate clients and assigning given limits and resource usage quotas for each of them. Those restrictions are assigned so as to restrain the clients from intervening with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the web hosting server from overburdening. Usually, hosting customers do not have root access to the web server's configuration files, which essentially indicates that they cannot access anything else on the web server beside their very own web hosting account. The web hosting resources that each account may resort to are set by the web hosting distributor that owns the server and by the respective website hosting plan. That predetermines the second vital question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Web hosting firms that distribute hosting packages normally have different web hosting plans. Those packages include different quotas of website hosting features and specs, which actually set the limitations that a web hosting package will include. The customer may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will fit him best. The website hosting plan will then define what limits the customer's account will include, once opened. The costs and the specs of the hosting packages are chosen by the very web hosting vendor. Based on the politics of the provider, the hosting solution falls into two groups - the free hosting solution and the popular shared service, currently very famous among "cPanel hosting" providers as a cloud web hosting one. It's not possible to say, which one is better, since they are very different from one another and they actually are determined by the marketing strategy of the given vendor and, of course, the needs of the specific user.

What is the distinction between the free of charge and the popular hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid service is in the quantity of resources that they contain. Free web hosting providers are not able to maintain an immense number of hosting servers, hence, they merely host more clients on a single web server by lowering the amount of resources offered by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the hosting servers are supervised and administered appropriately, since the great amount of accounts may cause the hosting server to crash on a regular basis. The majority of the free web hosting providers, however, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's quite tough to find a free website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting providers commonly offer free technical support even to the free web hosting customers, because they want their web pages to expand so that they subsequently migrate to a paid hosting plan, which includes more website hosting resources. One such distributor, for example, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web hosting providers worldwide.

At the same time, traditional hosting companies such as us, may afford to maintain multiple web servers and hence, we may afford to offer much more powerful website hosting packages. Of course, that reflects on the pricing of the website hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a website hosting plan, though, does not automatically mean that this package has a better quality. The most advantageous services are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that matches the real service which you're getting. What's more, we also offer a free bonus with the website hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by 100's of free-of-charge themes. As a web hosting supplier, we do look after our reputation and that's why if you select us, you can rest assured that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot actually utilize.

What should I anticipate from a hosting solution?

The hosting service is best for people who wish to host a normal web page, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of web traffic every month. You cannot expect, however, that a hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business develops, your web page will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to eventually move to a more powerful web hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (a.k.a. a virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. So, when choosing a website hosting vendor, you should also reflect about scalability, or else you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate provider, which can create site troubles and even extended downtime for your web portal. If you pick Kaba Host as your web hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is essential and will save you lots of frustrations in the long run.
