Shared Hosting Packages Description
As its name implies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are different forms and types of hosting, based on the aims and on the usage. Yet, they all are associated with hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the Internet. A web host is actually a hosting server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its very own Internet Protocol address, which permits users to get access to it via the Internet. The web hosting server's configuration and its resources depend on the kind of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.
What are the various types of hosting?
Depending on the goal, the professional web hosting service may be:
File Storage Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the clients to store their files on a given web hosting server. With the conventional file storage hosting service, the files that are stashed may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This hosting service generally entails backups of computers , docs, personal files and even other web servers. This service may also have given limitations when it comes to the web space and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth limitations, but that depends on the actual host.
Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous web hosting service type. Still, unlike the file storage web hosting service, the warez web hosting solution is used for disseminating patented content without being green-lighted by the license owner. To put it briefly - it entails the illegal distribution of files and materials. There are a lot of ways for this to be performed, but the two essential methods are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first approach entails either a certain website, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download patented content free of cost. The second approach involves a P2P connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which users swap files between each other. There are not many web hosting suppliers that allow that form of hosting on their servers, mostly owing to all the legal complications that it entails. Generally such web portals are hosted on personal dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Email Web Hosting - this service is utilized with both shared website hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the customer's desire. If you would like to establish your very own personal SMTP email server, then you will require either a private virtual web server or a dedicated web server that provides the level of access required to perform such a task. For regular email hosting ends, though, you can use a simple shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's widely used, because the web hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two different servers, often belonging to separate firms.
Shared Hosting - the most popular and regularly used hosting service at present. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose sort depends on the Operating System the web server is utilizing - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files demand concrete hosting server OSs, otherwise they won't be shown properly on the Web. This kind of web hosting may contain data storage space and web traffic restrictions, root access and central processing unit usage restrictions.
Depending on the purpose and on the functions, the customer should pick the sort of server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the web hosting company that's going to provide it. There are several sorts of web hosting servers, depending on the specs and the web hosting services that they provide. These are:
Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server provides a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small and medium sized web pages, which do not need vast quantities of disk storage and bandwidth.
Semi-dedicated Servers - they function on the very same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Still, there are much fewer customers sharing the same server. Hence, each of them will obtain a larger quota of the server's resources like RAM, web storage space, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting bulky web sites that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual private servers are perfect for medium sized sites, which do need root-level access to the server's configuration files. Normally, there are a bunch of virtual web server accounts sharing the same physical machine. In spite of that, each of them is independent from the other ones and runs its own OS.
Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated physical server set up and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a vast amount of system resources. It also offers complete root-level access, which renders it the optimal platform for any type of online portal that needs a hosting service.
The only question that remains is:
Which web hosting firm should I settle on?
As mentioned above, there are just a few hosts offering warez web hosting solutions due to legal problems. Such web hosting companies are being closed down virtually every month. Therefore, if you desire to launch such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared web hosting service is the most widespread kind of web hosting service. Hence, each website hosting corporation offers it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as private virtual web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small sized website hosting corporations do not have the resources needed for maintaining those solutions. You can effortlessly identify such companies by the sorts of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the customers. For example, some hosting providers permit you to kick off with a small sized hosting plan and then move to a more advanced one, if you deem it obligatory to do so. This is extremely suitable, because you do not need to transmit web pages between servers and there is no risk of experiencing service outages because of all the problems that may appear.
