Shared Hosting Explanation
As its name indicates, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, based on the purpose and on the usage. Still, they all entail hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the Internet. A host is actually a web hosting service that is connected to the Internet and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which permits users to access it via the Internet. The web hosting server's configuration and its system resources depend on the type of hosting solution it's going to be utilized for.
What are the various forms of web hosting?
Depending on the usage, the business hosting service may be:
File Storage Web Hosting - this form of hosting permits the customers to lodge their files on a particular server. With the standard file storage web hosting solution, the files that are stashed may only be accessed by the person that's availing of the service. This hosting service typically is associated with backups of personal computers , documents, personal files and even other web servers. This solution may also contain given limitations when it comes to the server space and the root privileges. There may also be traffic restrictions, but that is dependent on the actual hosting provider.
Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous web hosting service type. Still, unlike the file web hosting solution, the warez web hosting service is utilized for propagating patented materials without being given the go-ahead by the licence owner. In short - it involves the prohibited distribution of files and materials. There are numerous methods for this to be completed, but the two essential approaches are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first one involves either some web site, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a web server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thus download copyrighted docs free of charge. The second method entails a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, via which users swap files between each other. There are just a few website hosting corporations that allow such form of web hosting on their web hosting servers, chiefly because of all the legal problems that it entails. Generally such web pages are hosted on private dedicated hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party companies either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Email Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, depending on the client's wish. If you wish to set up your own personal SMTP email server, then you will need either a private virtual server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the access level needed to perform such a task. For conventional mail web hosting ends, though, you can avail of a normal shared website hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely used, since the website hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two different web servers, often owned by separate web hosts.
Shared Hosting - the most widespread and vastly utilized hosting service as of now. It's used for hosting web site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the web hosting server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files require specific server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be displayed correctly on the World Wide Web. This type of hosting may have web storage and bandwidth restrictions, server root access and CPU usage limits.
Based on the goals and on the functions, the client should pick the type of server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web hosting company that's going to furnish it. There are several kinds of servers, depending on the configuration and the website hosting services that they offer. These are:
Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server offers a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is reflected on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small sized and middle scale online portals, which do not demand enormous quantities of storage space and traffic.
Semi-dedicated Hosting - they work on the same principle as the shared hosting servers. Even so, there are much fewer customers sharing the same web server. Therefore, each of them will receive a larger quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting immense sites that do not require root-level access.
VPS hosting are excellent for middle scale web sites, which do need root access to the server's config files. Usually, there are several virtual server accounts placed on the same machine. In spite of that, each of them is autonomous from the other ones and has its own OS.
Dedicated Hosting - a completely dedicated web hosting server configured and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a great amount of resources. It also includes root access, which makes it a perfect environment for any type of online portal that demands a web hosting solution.
The sole question that's left is:
Which website hosting distributor should I opt for?
As stated above, there are not many hosts offering warez hosting solutions due to legal predicaments. Such hosting providers are being shut down virtually every month. Therefore, if you would like to launch such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared web hosting solution is the most famous type of hosting service. That is why, every web hosting distributor provides it. Not all of them, though, offer solutions such as private virtual servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the small scale website hosting vendors do not have the means demanded for maintaining those services. You can easily recognize such hosting companies by the kinds of solutions that they are providing and by the manner in which they introduce them to the customers. For instance, some web hosts allow you to start with a small sized hosting package and subsequently shift to a bigger one, if you deem it obligatory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not have to relocate websites between web hosting servers and there is no possibility of experiencing service interruptions due to all the predicaments that may take place.
