Hosting is a type of online service that enables individuals and firms to render their web sites available on the World Wide Web. Hosting providers are firms that offer hard drive storage space on a web hosting server placed in a data center and guarantee constant Internet connectivity.
Where do you start?
The World Wide Web is a crucial element in every individual's daily agenda. It offers you the ability to earn a little side cash, but can also be a main source of income. In order to embed adverts on your website or to promote a product that you offer, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your web page is secure and always reachable. But how do you discover one that is modestly priced and yet dependable enough?
The shared web hosting platform
The solution hosting providers have come up with is called shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, multiple users are hosted on the very same hosting server. There are strict limits on the resources that each shared hosting account can in fact utilize, thus making sure that they do not intervene with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated hosting server, which is used by only one individual. The shared hosting solution permits hosting suppliers to offer their clients inexpensive prices. It usually comes with intuitive web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at 29blue provide, and lets everybody manage their web portals without worrying about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting supplier.
With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other VPS hosting account owners, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The virtual server solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated web hosting solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who would like to run, for example, an audio or video streaming website or a community website. The circumstance that you need to deal with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge asset if you really need to implement certain server configuration modifications - something that would be inconceivable on a shared server.
Dedicated servers are in most cases much more expensive than shared web hosting or VPS server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated server then? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a high resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very explicit server architecture and security requirements, the right choice would be a dedicated server that you or your techs can administer directly. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is not a problem. You acquire complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your web sites.
