Website Hosting

As its name denotes, hosting is a solution, which entails hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of website hosting, depending on the goals and on the usage. Nonetheless, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Web. A web host is actually a web server that is linked to the Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which enables people to get access to it through the Web. The hosting server's architecture and its resources are dependent on the form of hosting service it's going to be used for.

What are the various types of web hosting?

Depending on the application, the hosting service may be:

File Hosting - this type of hosting allows the users to accommodate their files on a particular web hosting server. With the routine file storage web hosting service, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This hosting service usually refers to backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other web hosting servers. This service may also impose given limitations in terms of the server space and the root access. There may also be traffic restrictions, but that depends on the particular web hosting provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is resembling the previous hosting service type. In spite of that, unlike the file storage hosting service, the warez hosting service is utilized for distributing proprietary content without the sanction of the licence possessor. In short - it appertains to the criminal circulation of files and documents. There are lots of ways for this to be brought about, but the two essential approaches are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first way entails either a specific web page, or, most often, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download proprietary materials for free. The second way entails a peer-to-peer connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which people exchange files between each other. There are very few web page hosting vendors that permit such type of hosting on their web servers, chiefly owing to all the judicial entanglements that it presupposes. Generally such websites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Email Hosting - this solution is utilized with both shared website hosting and dedicated servers, based on the customer's desire. If you desire to establish your own personal SMTP email server, then you will require either a private virtual server or a dedicated web hosting server that offers the access level required to carry out such a task. For standard electronic mail web hosting purposes, though, you can avail of a conventional shared hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a solution that's widely famous, because the web page hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two separate servers, usually owned by different web hosts.

Web Page Hosting - the most famous and immensely used web hosting service now. It's used for hosting web site files, whose type depends on the OS the web hosting server is running - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files need specific web server OSs, otherwise they won't be exhibited accurately on the World Wide Web. This type of web hosting may include web space and web traffic quota limitations, server root access and central processing unit usage limits.

Based on the aims and on the usage, the user should pick the sort of web hosting server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web site hosting company that's going to supply it. There are various kinds of servers, based on the specs and the website hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Hosting Servers - a shared hosting server includes a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small and middle scale websites, which do not demand vast quantities of web storage space and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they are based on the very same principle as the shared web site hosting servers. Nevertheless, there are much less users accommodated on the same server. Hence, each of them will enjoy a bigger quota of the hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting enormous web pages that do not need root privileges.

Virtual Private Servers - the virtual private web servers are ideal for middle sized web sites, which do require root access to the web server's config files. Typically, there are a handful of VPS web hosting server accounts placed on the same physical machine. Nevertheless, each of them is isolated from the other ones and runs its own Operating System.

Dedicated Hosting - a completely dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees an immense amount of system resources. It also includes root privileges, which renders it a perfect environment for any type of online portal that necessitates a website hosting service.

The only question that remains is:

Which webspace hosting corporation should I choose?

As mentioned, there are just a few web hosting providers offering warez web hosting solutions because of legal complications. Such web hosts are being closed down virtually every month. For that reason, if you would like to run such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared website hosting service is the most popular type of hosting service. Hence, each hosting distributor provides it. Not all of them, though, provide services such as VPS servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the smaller webspace hosting companies do not have the resources required for offering those solutions. That is the reason why it's invariably best to pick a larger web host that can furnish its clients with all the services that they require. You can quickly identify such web hosts by the sorts of solutions that they are supplying and by the manner in which they present them to the customers. For example, some web hosting companies permit you to begin with a low-end web space hosting plan and afterwards upgrade to a more advanced one, if you find it necessary to do so. This is extremely suitable, since you do not have to transmit web portals between web hosting servers and there is no possibility of facing outages because of all the complications that may occur. Web hosting companies like 'Exclusive Hosting' provide all kinds of services and have the adequate server resources and staff to guarantee that their clients will not stumble upon any troubles when changing services, which is what a top hosting corporation is actually all about.
