An explanation of website hosting

As its name hints, web hosting is a solution, which involves hosting online content. There are different forms and types of web hosting, depending on the aims and on the objectives. Yet, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the Web. A host is in fact a web hosting service that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which allows users to access it through the Internet. The web server's architecture and its resources are determined by the sort of web hosting service it's going to be used for.

What are the different forms of hosting?

Based on the objective, the business hosting solution may be:

File Hosting - this form of web hosting allows the customers to stash their files on a particular hosting server. With the normal file storage web hosting service, the files that are accommodated may only be accessed by the individual that's utilizing the service. This web hosting solution mainly concerns backups of computers , documents, private files and even other hosting servers. This solution may also have given restrictions in relation to the disk space and the root privileges. There may also be web traffic quota limitations, but that is dependent on the given hosting service provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is resembling the previous web hosting service form. Nevertheless, unlike the file web hosting solution, the warez hosting service is utilized for disseminating copyrighted work without the approval of the patent holder. In brief - it is related to the illegitimate distribution of files and materials. There are lots of ways for this to be achieved, but the two essential approaches are - via simple HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first approach involves either some web page, or, most often, simply a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download licensed documents for free. The second way entails a peer-to-peer connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users swap files between each other. There aren't many web hosting vendors that allow such form of hosting on their web hosting servers, mainly because of all the judicial problems that it presupposes. Generally such web portals are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Web Hosting - this solution is used with both shared site hosting and dedicated web servers, based on the user's desire. If you want to run your own private SMTP email server, then you will require either a virtual hosting server or a dedicated server that offers the level of access needed to complete such an operation. For regular e-mail hosting ends, however, you can avail of an average shared site hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a service that's widely famous, because the web hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate web servers, usually belonging to different web hosts.

Web Site Hosting - the most famous and extensively utilized hosting service these days. It's used for hosting site files, whose sort 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 correctly on the Internet. This kind of hosting may involve disk space and bandwidth limitations, server root access and CPU usage restrictions.

Based on the mission and on the usage, the user should select the type of web hosting server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the webspace hosting firm that's going to furnish it. There are different kinds of hosting servers, based on the configuration and the web site hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web site hosting server includes a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, is manifested in the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and middle scale websites, which do not need considerable quotas of data space and bandwidth.

Semi-Dedicated - they function on the very same principle as the shared site hosting servers. Yet, there are much fewer users accommodated on the same hosting server. Because of that, each of them will enjoy a larger quota of the server's resources like RAM, disk storage space, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting big online portals that do not need full server root privileges.

VPS - the virtual hosting servers are excellent for middle scale websites, which do need root-level access to the web hosting server's config files. Generally, there are a few private virtual hosting server accounts placed on the same physical server. However, each of them is isolated from the rest and has its own OS.

Dedicated Servers - a fully dedicated machine configured and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a great amount of resources. It also offers root privileges, which makes it an ideal environment for any kind of site that needs a web hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which webspace hosting provider should I pick?

As already mentioned, there aren't many hosts offering warez web hosting services due to judicial troubles. Such web hosting providers are being shut down practically every month. Therefore, if you would like to create such a service, you should do it on your own personal computer. The shared web page hosting solution is the most widely spread type of web hosting service. So, each and every web hosting vendor offers it. Not all of them, though, offer solutions such as VPS web servers, semi-dedicated web hosting servers and dedicated servers. Most of the smaller website hosting corporations do not have the means needed for maintaining those solutions. Because of that it's always best to choose a larger host that can provide its clients with all the solutions that they require. You can effortlessly ID such web hosting companies by the kinds of services that they are supplying and by the way that they introduce them to the clients. For example, some hosting providers permit you to start with a low-end site hosting plan and subsequently shift to a more powerful one, if you find it compulsory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not have to relocate web sites between web hosting servers and there is no danger of experiencing service downtime due to all the predicaments that may occur. Web hosting companies such as de Hosting offer all kinds of solutions and possess the required web hosting server resources and personnel to assure that their customers will not encounter any problems when swapping services, which is what a top hosting firm is in fact all about.
