What Does Web Hosting Denote?
Web hosting is a type of Internet service that enables persons and businesses to render their online portals accessible on the World Wide Web. Hosting providers are companies that offer hard drive space on a hosting server kept in a data center facility and ensure continuous Internet connectivity.
Where do you start?
The World Wide Web is an essential component of our daily life. It offers you the ability to gain extra profit, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to incorporate ads on your website or to advertise a service that you sell, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your site is safe and always visible. But how do you discover one that is modestly priced and yet trustworthy enough?
The shared web hosting platform
The solution hosting service providers have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, lots of web hosting account holders are hosted on the same web hosting server. There are strict limitations on the system resources that each shared hosting account can actually utilize, thus making certain that they do not intervene with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is utilized by just one single customer. The shared hosting solution permits web hosting corporations to offer their clients reasonable prices. It usually comes with user-friendly web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at EASYTECH AFRICA provide, and enables everyone to manage their online portals without bothering about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are taken care of solely by the hosting distributor.
With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other private virtual server hosting account holders, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS server solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated web server solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who wants to build, for instance, an audio or video streaming website or a community web portal. The circumstance that you have to take care of the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a great benefit if you really have to implement some server configuration modifications - something that would be impossible on a shared hosting web server.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of instances much more expensive than shared web hosting or virtual server web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated server then? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a heavy resource-swallowing web page, or just has very explicit server architecture and safety requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated web server that you or your admins can administer directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is not an issue. You gain complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
