A description of web site hosting

As its name implies, web hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the goals and on the objectives. In spite of that, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the Web. A web host is in fact a web hosting service that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its very own IP address, which enables users to gain access to it through the Internet. The hosting server's architecture and its system resources depend on the sort of hosting service it will be used for.

What are the various forms of hosting?

Depending on the mission, the hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this form of web hosting permits the users to keep their files on a certain server. With the regular file hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the customer that's using the service. This hosting service usually is related to backups of personal computers , docs, private files and even other web hosting servers. This solution may also have given limits with regard to the server space and the root privileges. There may also be web traffic limits, but that is dependent on the particular hosting provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is comparable with the previous web hosting service form. Even so, unlike the file web hosting solution, the warez web hosting solution is used for spreading proprietary work without being given the OK to do so by the copyright owner. In brief - it refers to the unlawful circulation of files and materials. There are numerous ways for this to be attained, but the 2 principal ways are - via simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first way involves either a particular site, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented docs free of charge. The second way involves a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, via which people transmit files between each other. There are a few web page hosting distributors that allow that type of hosting on their web hosting servers, chiefly due to all the judicial entanglements that it involves. Commonly such web sites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this service is used with both shared hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, based on the user's desire. If you want to have your very own private SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a virtual server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the access level required to carry out such an operation. For normal e-mail hosting ends, though, you can set up an average shared web space hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a service that's widely used, because the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different web servers, often belonging to separate web hosting providers.

Website Hosting - the most famous and regularly utilized hosting service nowadays. It's used for hosting web site files, whose kind is dependent on the OS the web hosting server is running - Linux or Windows. Different types of files require different hosting server Operating Systems, or else they won't be shown properly on the Web. This type of web hosting may include disk storage space and web traffic quota limits, root-level access and CPU usage restrictions.

Based on the aims and on the objectives, the user should choose the type of server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the site hosting provider that's going to provide it. There are various sorts of web hosting servers, depending on the specs and the hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared web site hosting server offers a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small sized and medium scale websites, which do not require big quotas of storage space and traffic.

Semi-Dedicated Servers - they function on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Nevertheless, there are much fewer customers hosted on the same server. Hence, each of them will receive a larger quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting huge websites that do not demand full server root privileges.

VPS - the private virtual servers are excellent for medium size online portals, which do demand root-level access to the web hosting server's config files. Normally, there are a handful of VPS web hosting server accounts located on the same server. In spite of that, each of them is isolated from the others and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Servers Hosting - a fully dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a great quantity of resources. It also gives complete root-level access, which renders it an excellent platform for any type of website that demands a webspace hosting solution.

The sole question that remains is:

Which webspace hosting vendor should I settle on?

As mentioned above, there are very few providers offering warez web hosting solutions because of judicial complications. Such hosting companies are being closed down almost every month. For that reason, if you desire to offer such a service, you should do it on your own computer. The shared website hosting service is the most popular type of web hosting service. Therefore, every webspace hosting provider offers it. Not all of them, however, offer solutions such as virtual private hosting servers, semi-dedicated web servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the small scale web site hosting firms do not have the resources needed for maintaining those services. Hence it's always best to settle on a bigger company that can furnish its customers with all the solutions that they seek. You can effortlessly identify such hosting companies by the kinds of solutions that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the customers. For example, certain providers permit you to begin with a low-end web site hosting account and then upgrade to a more advanced one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is very convenient, because you do not need to transmit web sites between web servers and there is no possibility of experiencing downtime because of all the complications that may crop up. Hosting companies such as Multi Resource Group offer all kinds of solutions and have the adequate server resources and personnel to ensure that their clients will not stumble upon any complications when swapping services, which is what a top hosting supplier is in fact all about.
