As its name indicates, shared hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are different varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the aims and on the usage. However, they all entail hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a hosting server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its very own IP address, which allows people to gain access to it through the World Wide Web. The server's architecture and its limitations are dependent on the sort of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.

What are the different types of web hosting?

Depending on the purpose, the business hosting solution may be:

File Storage Hosting - this form of hosting allows the clients to accommodate their files on a specific web hosting server. With the regular file hosting service, the files that are kept may only be accessed by the user that's using the service. This web hosting service usually applies to backups of computers , docs, personal files and even other web hosting servers. This service may also involve given limits with regard to the disk storage space and the root privileges. There may also be traffic limitations, but that is dependent on the actual web hosting provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous web hosting service type. Yet, in contrast with the file storage hosting solution, the warez hosting solution is used for disseminating copyrighted materials without being given the go-ahead by the patent keeper. To cut a long story short - it entails the prohibited propagation of files and docs. There are lots of approaches for this to be completed, but the two essential approaches are - through simple HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first way involves either a certain website, or, most often, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download licensed content free of charge. The second method entails a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users transfer files between each other. There are not many web hosting distributors that permit such form of hosting on their hosting servers, mostly due to all the legal complications that it presupposes. Commonly such sites are hosted on personal dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Hosting - this solution is utilized with both shared web hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the user's desire. If you would like to create your very own private SMTP electronic mail server, then you will need either a VPS web server or a dedicated web server that offers the level of access needed to carry out such a procedure. For routine email web hosting purposes, however, you can utilize a standard shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's widely used, since the web hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate servers, often belonging to different web hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most widely spread and largely used hosting service nowadays. It's utilized for hosting web site files, whose type is determined by the OS the web server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files necessitate concrete web server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be shown accurately on the Web. This sort of web hosting may involve web storage and traffic quota limitations, server root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Based on the mission and on the functions, the customer should pick the sort of hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the web hosting firm that's going to provide it. There are different sorts of hosting servers, based on the specs and the hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server provides a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and medium sized web pages, which do not need immense quotas of web space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they are based on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nevertheless, there are much less users hosted on the same hosting server. Hence, each of them will enjoy a greater quota of the web server's resources like RAM, web storage, bandwidth and CPU. Ideal for hosting immense web pages that do not demand root access.

Virtual private servers are perfect for middle sized web portals, which do need root access to the web server's configuration files. Typically, there are a bunch of virtual server web hosting accounts placed on the same server. Nonetheless, each of them is independent from the rest and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated web hosting server set up and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a gigantic amount of resources. It also gives server root access, which makes it an excellent solution for any type of web page that demands a website hosting service.

The only question that remains is:

Which web hosting vendor should I opt for?

As mentioned above, there are just a few hosts providing warez web hosting solutions because of legal complications. Such hosting providers are being shut down almost every month. For that reason, if you would like to start such a service, you should do it on your own personal computer. The shared web hosting service is the most widely spread type of web hosting service. Therefore, each and every web hosting supplier provides it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as private virtual hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated servers. Most of the small sized web hosting vendors do not have the means demanded for offering those services. You can quickly recognize such web hosts by the types of solutions that they are offering and by the way that they introduce them to the clients. For example, certain hosts allow you to start with a small scale web hosting account and subsequently move to a more advanced one, if you deem it obligatory to do so. This is very convenient, since you do not have to transmit web pages between hosting servers and there is no possibility of suffering service interruptions because of all the problems that may show up.
