As its name implies, hosting is a service, which entails hosting online content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the mission and on the usage. Still, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the Internet. A host is in fact a web server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its own Internet Protocol address, which allows users to gain access to it through the World Wide Web. The hosting server's configuration and its resources depend on the form of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.
What are the different types of hosting?
Based on the function, the business hosting solution may be:
File Web Hosting - this type of web hosting permits the customers to lodge their files on a specific server. With the conventional file storage hosting solution, the files that are accommodated may only be accessed by the individual that's availing of the service. This web hosting solution usually is associated with backups of personal computers , docs, personal files and even other web servers. This service may also contain given limitations with regard to the web storage space and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth limits, but that depends on the actual service provider.
Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is resembling the previous web hosting service form. Still, unlike the file web hosting service, the warez hosting solution is utilized for spreading licensed work without the authorization of the patent proprietor. In brief - it is connected with the illicit dissemination of files and docs. There are multiple approaches for this to be fulfilled, but the 2 essential approaches are - via simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first approach entails either some website, or, most often, simply a directory on a web server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download patented materials free of charge. The second method entails a peer-to-peer connection, availing of the so-called Torrent servers, through which users transfer files between each other. There are very few web hosting firms that permit that type of hosting on their servers, mainly due to all the judicial problems that it presupposes. Generally such websites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Electronic Mail Hosting - this solution is used with both shared web hosting and dedicated web servers, based on the client's wish. If you wish to establish your very own personal SMTP email server, then you will require either a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated web server that offers the access level needed to accomplish such a procedure. For routine email web hosting purposes, however, you can use an ordinary shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a service that's very popular, because the website hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two separate web servers, usually belonging to different providers.
Hosting - the most popular and vastly utilized hosting service nowadays. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose sort depends on the OS the hosting server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files require different server OSs, otherwise they won't be shown appropriately on the Internet. This kind of web hosting may have web storage and bandwidth limits, server root access and CPU usage limitations.
Based on the aims and on the usage, the user should pick the kind of web server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the web hosting supplier that's going to supply it. There are different types of servers, depending on the specs and the website hosting solutions that they offer. These are:
Shared Hosting Server - a shared web server provides 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 size web pages, which do not demand immense amounts of data storage space and bandwidth.
Semi-dedicated Servers - they work on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nevertheless, there are much fewer clients sharing the same web server. Therefore, each of them will receive a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, server storage, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting immense web portals that do not demand root-level access.
VPS are perfect for middle sized web sites, which do demand root-level access to the web server's config files. Typically, there are a bunch of virtual server accounts hosted on the same server. Even so, each of them is independent from the other ones and runs its own Operating System.
Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated machine configured and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a tremendous quantity of system resources. It also offers full server root access, which makes it the optimal platform for any sort of web page that requires a website hosting solution.
The only question that's left is:
Which web hosting corporation should I select?
As stated above, there are very few web hosting companies offering warez hosting solutions because of legal predicaments. Such web hosting providers are being closed down practically every month. Therefore, if you want to provide such a service, you should do it on your very own personal computer. The shared hosting solution is the most widely spread kind of hosting service. That is why, each and every web hosting distributor offers it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as virtual web servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the small sized website hosting providers do not have the resources needed for offering those services. You can effortlessly ID such web hosts by the sorts of solutions that they are providing and by the manner in which they present them to the clientele. For example, certain hosting providers allow you to start with a small sized website hosting account and subsequently shift to a more powerful one, if you consider it obligatory to do so. This is very suitable, because you do not need to migrate websites between servers and there is no risk of facing service downtime due to all the predicaments that may appear.
