What Indeed is Web Hosting
As its name denotes, web hosting is a service, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of hosting, based on the aims and on the objectives. Nevertheless, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through 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 permits users to gain access to it through the World Wide Web. The web server's configuration and its resources are dependent on the sort of hosting solution it's going to be used for.
What are the different types of hosting?
Depending on the mission, the web hosting service may be:
File Web Hosting - this type of hosting permits the clients to deposit their files on a particular web server. With the ordinary file web hosting solution, the files that are kept may only be accessed by the individual that's utilizing the service. This web hosting solution typically concerns backups of PCs , docs, personal files and even other servers. This solution may also impose certain restrictions in relation to the web storage and the root privileges. There may also be web traffic quota limitations, but that depends on the actual host.
Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is resembling the previous web hosting service form. Still, in contrast with the file web hosting service, the warez web hosting service is used for propagating copyrighted materials without the approval of the license owner. In brief - it is connected with the criminal dissemination of files and documents. There are multiple approaches for this to be carried out, but the two chief approaches are - through simple HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first approach entails either a specific site, or, most typically, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download patented docs free of charge. The second way involves a P2P connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, through which people transfer files between each other. There aren't many website hosting distributors that allow such form of web hosting on their servers, mainly owing to all the legal predicaments that it presupposes. Typically such web portals are hosted on private dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Email Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared web hosting and dedicated hosting servers, based on the client's intention. If you want to launch your very own personal SMTP email server, then you will need either a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the level of access required to execute such an assignment. For standard mail hosting ends, though, you can set up a normal shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's very used, because the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by 2 different servers, often belonging to different companies.
Web Hosting - the most popular and universally used hosting service these days. It's utilized for hosting web site files, whose sort is determined by the OS the web hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files demand different server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be displayed accurately on the Web. This kind of hosting may include disk storage and bandwidth limits, server root access and central processing unit usage limitations.
Based on the aims and on the objectives, the client should pick the sort of server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the website hosting provider that's going to furnish it. There are several sorts of hosting servers, depending on the configuration and the website hosting services that they offer. These are:
Shared Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server supplies a smaller amount of 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 need immense quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth.
Semi-dedicated Hosting - they work on the very same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much less customers accommodated on the same server. Hence, each of them will get a larger quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, server space, bandwidth and CPU. Perfect for hosting popular sites that do not demand server root access.
VPS hosting are excellent for medium web pages, which do demand root-level access to the hosting server's config files. Usually, there are a handful of virtual hosting server accounts hosted on the same server. In spite of that, each of them is autonomous from the others and runs its own Operating System.
Dedicated Hosting - a completely dedicated server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a gigantic quantity of system resources. It also includes full root access, which makes it an ideal platform for any sort of web page that needs a web hosting solution.
The sole question that remains is:
Which website hosting firm should I settle on?
As stated above, there aren't many hosts offering warez web hosting services because of legal troubles. Such hosts are being closed down virtually every month. That is why, if you would like to start such a service, you should do it on your own computer. The shared web hosting solution is the most popular kind of web hosting service. Hence, every website hosting company offers it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as private virtual web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated servers. Most of the smaller web hosting corporations do not have the means needed for maintaining those solutions. You can quickly ID such web hosting companies by the types of services that they are making available and by the manner in which they present them to the customers. For instance, some hosting companies permit you to kick off with a small sized website hosting plan and then move to a bigger one, if you consider it obligatory to do so. This is very convenient, because you do not have to transfer sites between web hosting servers and there is no chance of suffering service downtime due to all the complications that may crop up.
