What Indeed is Web Hosting
As its name suggests, web hosting is a solution, which entails hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the goals and on the objectives. Nevertheless, they all pertain to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the Internet. A web host is actually a hosting server that is connected to the Internet and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which allows people to have access to it via the Internet. The web server's architecture and its system resources are determined by the sort of hosting solution it's going to be used for.
What are the various types of hosting?
Based on the objective, the professional hosting solution may be:
File Hosting - this form of web hosting allows the users to store their files on a given server. With the standard file hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the individual that's using the service. This hosting solution traditionally includes backups of PCs , documents, personal files and even other servers. This solution may also contain given limitations when it comes to the disk space and the root access. There may also be web traffic limits, but that depends on the given web hosting provider.
Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is resembling the previous web hosting service type. In spite of that, in contrast with the file hosting service, the warez hosting service is used for propagating patented content without the approval of the licence bearer. To put it briefly - it appertains to the forbidden dissemination of files and materials. There are numerous approaches for this to be fulfilled, but the two chief approaches are - through simple HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first way entails either a specific web site, or, most typically, simply a directory on a web server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented content free of charge. The second approach involves a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users transmit files between each other. There aren't many website hosting companies that allow such form of web hosting on their web servers, mostly due to all the legal entanglements that it involves. Usually such web sites are hosted on personal dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Electronic Mail Hosting - this service is utilized with both shared website hosting and dedicated hosting servers, based on the client's intention. If you desire to run your own private SMTP server, then you will require either a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that offers the access level needed to perform such an assignment. For ordinary e-mail web hosting purposes, however, you can utilize a normal shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely popular, because the website hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two different web servers, usually owned by separate hosts.
Web Hosting - the most popular and universally utilized hosting service as of now. It's used for hosting site files, whose sort is dependent on the Operating System the hosting server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files require specific web hosting server OSs, or else they won't be exhibited appropriately on the World Wide Web. This type of hosting may impose storage space and web traffic limits, root-level access and CPU usage limitations.
Based on the purpose and on the usage, the client should pick the kind of hosting server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web hosting firm that's going to furnish it. There are several sorts of web hosting servers, depending on the configuration and the hosting services that they offer. These are:
Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server provides a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small sized and middle sized sites, which do not need big quotas of server storage space and traffic.
Semi-dedicated Hosting - they work on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Still, there are much fewer clients accommodated on the same web hosting server. Because of that, each of them will enjoy a greater quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, data storage, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting big sites that do not require root-level access.
VPS hosting are excellent for middle scale online portals, which do require root access to the web server's configuration files. Commonly, there are a number of VPS web server hosting accounts placed on the same physical machine. In spite of that, each of them is independent from the other ones and has its own Operating System.
Dedicated Hosting - a fully dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a great quantity of system resources. It also offers complete server root access, which renders it the optimal environment for any kind of online portal that requires a hosting service.
The only question that remains is:
Which web hosting corporation should I choose?
As mentioned above, there are very few hosting companies providing warez web hosting solutions due to legal problems. Such providers are being closed down practically every month. Therefore, if you would like to launch such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared website hosting service is the most popular kind of hosting service. Hence, each website hosting provider offers it. Not all of them, though, offer solutions such as virtual web servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated web servers. Most of the small scale website hosting providers do not have the means demanded for offering those services. You can effortlessly recognize such web hosts by the kinds of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the clients. For instance, some hosting companies permit you to begin with a low-end hosting plan and subsequently upgrade to a bigger one, if you deem it compulsory to do so. This is very convenient, since you do not need to move web pages between servers and there is no possibility of facing service downtime because of all the complications that may crop up.
