Shared Hosting Packages Unmasked
As its name denotes, shared hosting is a service, which entails hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of hosting, based on the mission and on the usage. Nevertheless, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a web hosting service that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its own personal IP address, which permits users to gain access to it via the World Wide Web. The hosting server's configuration and its system resources are subject to the form of web hosting solution it will be used for.
What are the different forms of web hosting?
Based on the goal, the professional web hosting service may be:
File Hosting - this form of hosting enables the clients to stash their files on a particular web server. With the normal file web hosting service, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the customer that's using the service. This web hosting solution generally includes backups of personal computers , docs, personal files and even other web servers. This service may also impose given limitations in relation to the data storage and the root privileges. There may also be web traffic limitations, but that depends on the particular service provider.
Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is quite similar to the previous hosting service type. Nonetheless, unlike the file storage hosting service, the warez web hosting solution is utilized for propagating patented materials without being given the go-ahead by the licence keeper. To put it briefly - it is connected with the illicit transmission of files and documents. There are lots of ways for this to be achieved, but the two chief ways are - through plain HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first one entails either a specific web portal, or, most typically, simply a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thus download licensed documents free of charge. The second way involves a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, via which users transmit files between each other. There are a few website hosting suppliers that permit such form of hosting on their web servers, mainly owing to all the legal troubles that it entails. Commonly such sites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Mail Hosting - this service is used with both shared hosting and dedicated servers, based on the user's wish. If you would like to have your own private SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the access level required to perform such an assignment. For conventional email web hosting ends, though, you can utilize an average shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely famous, since the web hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate web servers, often belonging to different firms.
Shared Hosting - the most widespread and commonly used hosting service at the moment. It's used for hosting site files, whose type is determined by the Operating System the hosting server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand concrete web server OSs, or else they won't be exhibited properly on the Web. This sort of hosting may involve web storage and web traffic limits, server root access and CPU usage limits.
Based on the purpose and on the objectives, the client should choose the kind of web hosting server that he demands for his project, and, of course, the hosting company that's going to supply it. There are various sorts of web hosting servers, based on the specifications and the website hosting solutions that they provide. These are:
Shared Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server supplies a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small size and medium size online portals, which do not require large quotas of data space and traffic.
Semi-dedicated Servers - they function on the very same principle as the shared web servers. Yet, there are much less customers hosted on the same hosting server. Because of that, each of them will receive a greater share of the hosting server's resources like RAM, disk storage, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting huge web portals that do not require complete root-level access.
Virtual private servers are perfect for medium online portals, which do require root-level access to the web hosting server's config files. Generally, there are a few virtual hosting server accounts situated on the same physical machine. However, each of them is independent from the others and has its own Operating System.
Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a considerable quantity of system resources. It also gives root privileges, which renders it a perfect environment for any sort of site that needs a web hosting solution.
The sole question that's left is:
Which website hosting company should I choose?
As mentioned, there are very few hosts providing warez web hosting solutions because of legal entanglements. Such web hosting providers are being shut down almost every month. For that reason, if you would like to launch such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared website hosting service is the most popular kind of hosting service. Because of that, each and every website hosting supplier provides it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as private virtual servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the small sized website hosting corporations do not have the means needed for offering those solutions. You can effortlessly ID such hosts by the kinds of solutions that they are providing and by the way that they present them to the customers. For example, certain providers permit you to commence with a small sized website hosting plan and subsequently shift to a bigger one, if you find it obligatory to do so. This is extremely convenient, because you do not need to transfer websites between web servers and there is no danger of suffering outages due to all the problems that may arise.
