The most principal and widely used type of web hosting is the web hosting service. It's a means to host your web portal without having to know much about programming and managing a server. In addition to this, it's also the most economical form of website hosting and it's in fact affordable for anybody. Nonetheless, what is web hosting?

What is web hosting?

As the name implies, the web hosting service is a sort of service where a lot of users share the system reserves of one and the same server. This implies that all web hosting server ingredients such as CPU, hard drives, RAM, NICs etc. are apportioned among the users whose accounts are on that same server. This is typically rendered tenable by setting up different accounts for the separate clients and assigning specific limitations and quotas for each of them. Those limits are set so as to hinder the customers from meddling with each other's accounts and, of course, to hinder the server from overloading. Typically, web hosting clients do not have complete root access to the web hosting server's configuration files, which basically signifies that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server but their very own web hosting account. The website hosting resources that each account may resort to are fixed by the hosting distributor that owns the web server and by the respective website hosting package. That leads to the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers divided among the users?

Hosting firms that distribute web hosting packages normally have diverse website hosting packages. Those plans offer different quotas of website hosting resources and specifications, which actually set the limitations that a website hosting plan will have. The customer may choose between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he believes will suit him best. The web hosting package will then determine what limits the client's account will involve, once opened. The costs and the features of the website hosting plans are determined by the very hosting corporation. Depending on the policy of the corporation, the web hosting service can be divided into 2 groups - the free hosting service and the standard shared solution, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" sellers as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to allege, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are determined by the business policy of the specific supplier and, of course, the requirements of the specific user.

What is the difference between the free and the typical web hosting service?

Of course, the principal difference between the free and the paid solution is in the amount of resources that they contain. Free website hosting providers are not able to keep an enormous number of web servers, therefore, they plainly host more clients on one web server by lowering the quantity of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be effective only on condition that the web servers are supervised and maintained appropriately, because the enormous amount of accounts may make the web hosting server crash regularly. Most of the free web hosting distributors, though, neglect the quality of the service and as a result, it's very difficult to come across a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting distributors normally offer free customer support even to the free hosting clients, since they want their web portals to enlarge so that they subsequently move to a paid web hosting package, which offers more web hosting features. Such corporation, for example, is, which is among the largest and eldest free website hosting vendors in the world.

On the other hand, established web hosting corporations such as us, may afford to keep plenty of servers and therefore, we are able to provide much more feature-rich web hosting packages. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting packages. Paying a higher fee for a web hosting account, however, does not necessarily signify that this service has a better quality. The best solutions are the balanced ones, which offer a fee that corresponds to the actual service which you're obtaining. Additionally, we also offer a free bonus with the web hosting package, like the 1-click applications installer, accompanied by hundreds of complimentary site templates. As a web hosting corporation, we do care about our reputation and that's why if you go with us, you can rest confident that you won't get fooled into buying a service that you cannot actually use.

What should I anticipate from a web hosting solution?

The web hosting solution is best for individuals who desire to host a standard website, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of traffic each month. You cannot expect, though, that a web hosting account will be sufficient for your needs, since as your business gets bigger, your website will become more and more resource consuming. Hence, you will have to ultimately upgrade to a more feature-rich website hosting service like a semi-dedicated hosting, a VPS hosting (a.k.a. a private virtual web hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated hosting. Therefore, when choosing a hosting supplier, you should also ponder about scalability, or else you might end up migrating your domain manually to a different supplier, which can cause website problems and even prolonged downtime for your website. If you pick MorrisDNS as your website hosting company, you can rest safe that we can present you with the required domain name and hosting services as you grow bigger, is essential and will save you lots of hassles in the future.
