Shared Hosting Packages Unveiled

If you have decided to set up your very own personal web site, but are not very certain about what a website is and are unfamiliar with the term "shared hosting", this article is devoted to clarifying these notions in plain language.

What precisely is a website?

A web site is a combination of web pages brought together systematically. It has a special website address, also referred to as a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). A site may include only one webpage and sometimes may even consist of as many as one thousand web pages.

What is a web hosting server?

A web hosting server enables you to upload your web site onto it. In some cases, there might be even thousands of web sites on one single web hosting server. The hosting server basically is a computer with special hardware, which is physically located in a datacenter with special cooling systems, whose task is to ensure the smooth operation of the web hosting server and all the web sites located on it.

To sum up, a web hosting server will be truly a launching pad when the time arrives for you to launch your web site. It could be any type of website - a corporate site consisting of a large number of web pages, or a web site, which has just several webpages and which you have built simply for your friends and relatives.

You've decided what your website will be, now what?

Once you have reached a decision about what type of website you wish to launch, the next step is to find out what sort of web hosting service you have to select for your web venture. Basically, there are two types of website hosting services - charge-free web hosting services and paid web hosting services. The free website hosting solution is typically utilized by persons that do not own a business site.

Advantages and disadvantages of the cost-free website hosting solution

You will not get many options with a free-of-cost hosting package. Features like traffic, RAM memory and hard drive space are restricted and insufficient for a complex e-shop or a business web site, or even for a site with plenty of graphics. Additionally, there are a lot of banners placed on your website by the web hosting solutions provider. These ads take up plenty of space on your website and are very embarrassing.

Shared hosting

The paid shared hosting services are more dependable and offer plenty of powerful features apart from the high-end web hosting server that will host your site and its content. Nevertheless, it is essential to know which features your web site needs prior to choosing your web hosting package. You should not rush and end up investing money in something that your site does not demand.

Find your hosting solutions provider

It is not tough to find a hosting accounts provider. You need to simply carry out an online survey in order to find a web hosting provider that meets your site's demands. Before you make your actual decision, check the parameters of the web hosting plans supplied by the web hosting distributors that have got your attention. We, for instance, are among the top-notch hosting providers on the marketplace at the moment. The big assortment of web hosting solutions and our prices are what renders us an attractive option. Even so, you must verify what sort of web hosting service you require and whether the price fits your budget. What is more, you must always remember to examine the web hosting distributor's Terms of Use before subscribing to make sure that your web site is not abusing them.

Signing up for a website hosting account

Once you have found out what features are ideal for your site, the next move is to sign up for an account with the hosting packages provider of your choosing. You will be given all the necessary tools for managing your web site files and databases. With us, for example, you will receive a hosting Control Panel, which has domain, website, database and e-mail account administration sections. You log in the Control Panel using your unique user name and password, which gives you safe access to the part of the hosting server where your web site will be hosted.

Uploading your web site

You can either upload your files through an FTP client application or, as is with most web hosting suppliers, through a web-based tool that is included within the hosting Control Panel. With us, the File Manager is rather intuitive and offers features comparable to those observed in Windows Explorer, which makes file manipulation very easy. We offer also a website building tool and a PHP-driven script installation tool, which you can use to build your web site if you have no programming capabilities and are making your first steps in web design. The online site building tool, whose name is SiteStudio, will also spare you the time and effort of creating a website on your personal computer and then uploading it through an FTP software program or the File Manager tool.
