The most fundamental and popularly utilized kind of web hosting is the hosting service. It represents a way to host your web portal without having to be much informed about programming and managing a server. In addition, it's also the most economical form of website hosting and it's in fact affordable for everyone. However, what is hosting?

What is hosting?

As the name implies, the hosting solution is a sort of service where lots of users share the system resources of one and the same web hosting server. This denotes that all web hosting server elements like CPU, hard disk drives, RAM, NICs and so on, are allocated among the users whose accounts are on that same hosting server. This is normally rendered feasible by setting up separate accounts for the separate users and appointing specific restrictions and usage quotas for each of them. Those limitations are appointed so as to hinder the users from interfering with each other's accounts and, of course, to prevent the hosting server from overburdening. Normally, hosting users do not have complete root-level access to the server's configuration files, which principally means that they do not have access to anything else on the hosting server aside from their own hosting account. The website hosting features that each account may use are set by the web hosting distributor that possesses the server and by the respective web hosting plan. That entails the second essential question:

How are the shared hosting servers shared among the clients?

Web hosting vendors that distribute hosting packages typically have various website hosting packages. Those plans involve different amounts of website hosting resources and specs, which in fact define the restrictions that a hosting account will have. The customer may pick between the individual web hosting plans and sign up for the one that he deems will fit him best. The web hosting package will then define what restrictions the user's account will involve, once created. The costs and the features of the web hosting packages are chosen by the very hosting corporation. Depending on the politics of the corporation, the hosting service falls into 2 categories - the free hosting service and the common shared service, currently very popular among "cPanel hosting" distributors as a cloud web hosting one. It's impossible to claim, which one is more preferable, since they are very different from each other and they really are dependent on the marketing policy of the specific company and, of course, the demands of the particular customer.

What is the contrast between the free and the regular hosting solution?

Of course, the essential difference between the free and the paid service is in the amount of features that they include. Free web hosting providers are not able to keep a big number of servers, hence, they just host more customers on one hosting server by reducing the amount of system resources provided by the accounts. This will be efficient only in case the web servers are monitored and dealt with appropriately, because the immense amount of accounts may make the hosting server crash frequently. Most of the free website hosting companies, however, ignore the quality of the service and hence, it's quite tough to come across a free of cost website hosting solution that's in fact worth the time. The top free hosting corporations normally offer free technical support even to the free website hosting clients, since they want their web portals to grow so that they eventually migrate to a paid hosting plan, which offers more website hosting features. One such vendor, for instance, is, which is among the largest and oldest free web hosting firms worldwide.

At the same time, established hosting suppliers like us, are able to keep multiple hosting servers and hence, we are able to provide much more powerful website hosting plans. Of course, that affects the cost of the web hosting plans. Paying a higher price for a web hosting plan, though, does not automatically denote that this service has a finer quality. The most optimal services are the balanced ones, which involve a price that corresponds to the actual service which you're receiving. In addition, we also provide a free bonus with the website hosting package, such as the 1-click applications installer, complemented with 100's of free-of-cost layouts. As a web hosting distributor, we do worry about our reputation and that is the reason why if you select us, you can rest confident that you won't get deceived into paying for a plan that you cannot in fact avail of.

What should I expect from a hosting solution?

The hosting service is best for individuals who wish to host a standard web page, which is going to devour a small or medium amount of web traffic each month. You cannot expect, however, that a hosting account will last you a lifetime, since as your business grows bigger, your website will become more and more demanding. Therefore, you will have to eventually move to a more feature-rich website hosting solution such as a semi-dedicated servers, a VPS (aka a private virtual hosting server, or VPS), or even a dedicated server. Therefore, when selecting a website hosting distributor, you should also think about scalability, or else you might end up relocating your domain manually to a separate vendor, which can cause web site problems and even continued downtime for your web page. If you choose TronINDEX as your web hosting distributor, you can rest safe that we can present you with the needed domain name and hosting services as you get bigger, is vital and will save you a lot of problems in the future.
