A description of website hosting

As its name indicates, web hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are various varieties and types of web hosting, based on the aims and on the usage. However, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the Web. A host is in fact a hosting server that is connected to the Internet and has its own personal IP address, which enables people to access it through the World Wide Web. The web server's architecture and its system resources are determined by the form of web hosting service it will be utilized for.

What are the various types of hosting?

Based on the objective, the web hosting service may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of web hosting permits the customers to stash their files on a specific web hosting server. With the conventional file storage web hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the person that's using the service. This web hosting solution normally involves backups of personal computers , docs, private files and even other web servers. This service may also have certain limits in terms of the data space and the root access. There may also be traffic limits, but that is dependent on the actual host.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is resembling the previous hosting service form. However, unlike the file web hosting service, the warez hosting service is utilized for transmitting patented materials without the authorization of the copyright proprietor. To put it briefly - it is associated with the unlawful circulation of files and documents. There are a lot of approaches for this to be executed, but the two principal ways are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through P2P connections. The first one involves either a given website, or, most often, just a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download proprietary materials free of charge. The second way involves a P2P connection, availing of the so-called Torrent servers, through which users transfer files between each other. There are very few web space hosting vendors that permit that form of web hosting on their hosting servers, mostly owing to all the judicial predicaments that it entails. Typically such websites are hosted on personal dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this solution is used with both shared website hosting and dedicated web servers, depending on the client's desire. If you desire to set up your very own personal SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a virtual web server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the access level required to carry out such a procedure. For conventional email hosting purposes, however, you can avail of a regular shared website hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's widely famous, since the web site hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, often owned by separate web hosts.

Website Hosting - the most widely spread and widely used hosting service today. It's used for hosting site files, whose sort is determined by the Operating System the web server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files request specific web server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be exhibited accurately on the Web. This kind of web hosting may have data space and bandwidth quota limitations, root-level access and CPU usage limits.

Based on the purpose and on the functions, the customer should pick the kind of web server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the site hosting provider that's going to provide it. There are several types of servers, depending on the specs and the hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

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

Semi-Dedicated Hosting - they function on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. In spite of that, there are much less customers sharing the same server. For that reason, each of them will obtain a bigger quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting enormous sites that do not demand full server root access.

VPS hosting - the virtual hosting servers are perfect for middle sized websites, which do need root access to the web server's configuration files. Normally, there are a number of VPS server web hosting accounts sharing the same server. Nevertheless, each of them is isolated from the others and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server Hosting - a completely dedicated hosting server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees an enormous amount of system resources. It also includes full root-level access, which makes it an excellent platform for any sort of online portal that needs a hosting service.

The sole question that's left is:

Which hosting corporation should I pick?

As already stated, there are not many web hosts providing warez hosting solutions due to judicial complications. Such web hosts are being closed down practically every month. Therefore, if you want to set up such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared hosting service is the most widely spread type of web hosting service. Therefore, each web space hosting distributor offers it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as private virtual servers, semi-dedicated hosting servers and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the small scale web site hosting suppliers do not have the resources required for maintaining those solutions. Hence it's always best to pick a larger web hosting company that can provide its customers with all the solutions that they need. You can easily ID such hosting companies by the kinds of services that they are making available and by the manner in which they present them to the clientele. For example, some hosting companies permit you to begin with a smaller hosting plan and afterwards move to a more advanced one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is extremely suitable, since you do not need to relocate websites between web hosting servers and there is no possibility of facing network outages due to all the problems that may arise. Providers like 50Webs Web Hosting provide all types of services and possess the necessary web server resources and personnel to assure that their customers will not face any troubles when swapping services, which is what a top hosting firm is actually all about.
