Description of Shared Web Hosting

Shared web hosting is a kind of online service that enables individuals and firms to render their web portals viewable on the Internet. Hosting service providers are companies that offer hard disk space on a hosting server kept in a data center and ensure uninterrupted Internet access.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web is an essential staple in everybody's daily life. It offers you the opportunity to gain a bit of cash on the side, but can also be a chief source of income. In order to place ads on your web site or to publicize a commodity that you sell, you always need a hosting solution, which will make certain that your web site is secure and continually reachable. But how do you find one that is moderately priced and yet reliable enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution hosting corporations have introduced is named shared hosting. With the shared hosting solution, a lot of web hosting customers are accommodated on one and the same web hosting server. There are rigorous limits on the resources that each shared hosting account can actually utilize, thus making certain that they do not interfere with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers acceptable performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is used by just one single person. The shared solution enables shared web hosting service providers to offer their clients low prices. It ordinarily comes with intuitive web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at provide, and permits everyone to administer their online portals without bothering about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are entirely handled by the hosting firm.

VPS web hosting

With the VPS web hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other Virtual Private Server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The virtual web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web server solution, and is a perfect option for anyone who wishes to establish, for instance, an audio or video streaming website or a social networking site. The fact 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 advantage if you really have to make certain server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web hosting server.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Dedicated web hosting servers are in most circumstances much more high-priced than shared hosting or Virtual Private Server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated hosting server then? The answer is very simple. If your corporation has a heavy resource-absorbing web portal, or just has very special server configuration and safety requirements, the most appropriate choice would be a dedicated server that you or your server administrators can administer directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are bestowed with full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
