What Does Shared Hosting Signify?

As its name indicates, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting online content. There are various forms and types of hosting, based on the mission and on the usage. Nevertheless, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the World Wide Web. A host is in fact a web hosting service that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its very own Internet Protocol address, which enables people to gain access to it through the Web. The server's configuration and its limitations are dependent on the kind of hosting service it will be used for.

Depending on the mission, the business website hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of hosting permits the clients to host their files on a given web server. With the common file hosting solution, the files that are deposited may only be accessed by the individual that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution normally pertains to backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other web hosting servers. This solution may also have given limits in relation to the disk space and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth restrictions, but that is dependent on the actual web hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is comparable with the previous web hosting service form. Nonetheless, in contrast with the file storage web hosting service, the warez hosting solution is utilized for distributing licensed materials without the permission of the licence bearer. To cut a long story short - it is related to the criminal transmission of files and docs. There are lots of ways for this to be carried out, but the 2 principal ways are - via plain HTTP downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first approach entails either a specific web portal, or, most commonly, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download proprietary files free of charge. The second approach involves a peer-to-peer connection, making use of the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users exchange files between each other. There are very few website hosting suppliers that permit such type of hosting on their hosting servers, mainly because of all the legal entanglements that it involves. Typically such websites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared web hosting and dedicated web servers, depending on the customer's wish. If you would like to run your very own private SMTP e-mail server, then you will require either a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that offers the access level needed to perform such a procedure. For traditional electronic mail web hosting purposes, however, you can open a normal shared website hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a service that's widely used, since the website hosting and the mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate web servers, usually owned by separate web hosting providers.

Shared Hosting - the most popular and largely utilized hosting service as of now. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose sort is dependent on the OS the hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different types of files necessitate concrete server OSs, or else they won't be shown properly on the Web. This sort of web hosting may include web storage and bandwidth restrictions, server root access and CPU usage limits.

Based on the aims and on the objectives, the customer should select the kind of hosting server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web hosting corporation that's going to furnish it. There are several types of servers, based on the specs and the web hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server includes a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, is reflected on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small scale and middle scale web pages, which do not require immense quotas of disk space and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they operate on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. However, there are much less clients sharing the same server. Because of that, each of them will get a bigger quota of the server's resources like RAM, web storage, bandwidth and CPU. Excellent for hosting popular web pages that do not demand full root privileges.

Virtual private servers are perfect for medium sized web sites, which do require root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files. Usually, there are a number of private virtual server web hosting accounts accommodated on the same physical machine. In spite of that, each of them is autonomous from the others and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated physical machine set up and accessed by you and only you. It ensures an immense amount of resources. It also offers full root access, which makes it an ideal platform for any kind of site that requires a website hosting solution.

The only question that's left is:

Which web hosting distributor should I select?

As already mentioned, there are very few providers offering warez web hosting services due to legal troubles. Such web hosting companies are being shut down virtually every month. Because of that, if you would like to launch such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared website hosting service is the most famous kind of web hosting service. Because of that, every website hosting supplier offers it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as private virtual web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the small sized web hosting providers do not have the resources required for offering those solutions. You can quickly recognize such hosts by the sorts of services that they are supplying and by the manner in which they present them to the customers. For example, some web hosts allow you to kick off with a small sized web hosting package and afterwards move to a more advanced one, if you consider it compulsory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not have to migrate web pages between servers and there is no chance of experiencing service interruptions because of all the problems that may arise.
