What Does Shared Hosting Denote?

As its name indicates, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the purpose and on the functions. Still, they all pertain to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Web. A web host is actually a web hosting service that is linked to the Internet and has its own Internet Protocol address, which enables people to have access to it through the World Wide Web. The web hosting server's architecture and its system resources are dependent on the form of hosting service it's going to be used for.

Based on the goal, the professional web hosting solution may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the clients to deposit their files on a given web server. With the average file storage web hosting solution, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution typically concerns backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other servers. This solution may also contain certain restrictions with regard to the disk storage space and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth quota limits, but that is dependent on the actual web hosting service provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is quite similar to the previous web hosting service type. Even so, unlike the file hosting service, the warez hosting service is utilized for disseminating patented materials without being okayed by the copyright keeper. In brief - it involves the illicit propagation of files and documents. There are many methods for this to be achieved, but the 2 main ways are - via plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first one involves either a specific web page, or, most often, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download copyrighted materials free of charge. The second method entails a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, via which people transmit files between each other. There are a few website hosting providers that permit that form of hosting on their web hosting servers, mostly owing to all the judicial complications that it involves. Generally such web portals are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by third-party companies either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared website hosting and dedicated web servers, depending on the user's intention. If you wish to have your own private SMTP e-mail server, then you will require either a VPS server or a dedicated server that offers the level of access required to execute such a task. For traditional e-mail web hosting purposes, though, you can create an ordinary shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a solution that's very used, because the web hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate web servers, often owned by different hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most famous and widely utilized hosting service at the moment. It's used for hosting website files, whose sort is determined by the OS the web server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files need specific web hosting server OSs, or else they won't be exhibited accurately on the World Wide Web. This type of hosting may contain server storage and bandwidth limitations, root-level access and CPU usage limits.

Based on the mission and on the functions, the user should pick the kind of server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the website hosting vendor that's going to furnish it. There are several sorts of hosting servers, depending on the specs and the website hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared web server supplies a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and middle scale web pages, which do not need considerable quotas of storage space and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they work on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Even so, there are much fewer customers sharing the same web hosting server. Because of that, each of them will obtain a bigger share of the hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting big web pages that do not need root access.

Virtual private servers are perfect for medium sites, which do demand root-level access to the web server's config files. Usually, there are a bunch of private virtual web server hosting accounts placed on the same machine. Even so, each of them is independent from the others and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated hosting server configured and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a mammoth quantity of system resources. It also offers root-level access, which makes it an excellent environment for any type of web portal that necessitates a website hosting solution.

The sole question that remains is:

Which web hosting corporation should I opt for?

As mentioned above, there aren't many providers providing warez web hosting solutions due to judicial entanglements. Such hosts are being closed down virtually every month. That is why, if you wish to start such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared hosting solution is the most popular kind of hosting service. Because of that, every hosting company offers it. Not all of them, though, offer solutions such as VPS web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the smaller web hosting distributors do not have the means demanded for maintaining those solutions. You can quickly identify such web hosts by the types of solutions that they are supplying and by the manner in which they introduce them to the clients. For example, certain providers permit you to start with a small sized web hosting plan and then move to a more powerful one, if you find it mandatory to do so. This is extremely convenient, because you do not need to move websites between servers and there is no chance of suffering outages due to all the complications that may show up.
