What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting is a sort of Internet service that enables persons and organizations to make their websites accessible on the web. Web hosting service providers are companies that offer hard disk storage space on a web server placed in a datacenter and ensure uninterrupted network uptime.

Where do you start?

The Internet is a vital element in every person's daily life. It offers you the chance to gain a little side cash, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to embed advertisements on your site or to popularize a product or a service that you offer, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will make sure that your website is secure and constantly up and running. But how do you find one that is cheap and yet dependable enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution web hosting distributors have introduced is named shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, multiple hosting customers are hosted on one and the same server. There are strict limitations on the system resources that each shared hosting account can in fact use, thus guaranteeing that they do not meddle with each other. The shared solution offers decent performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is used by just one individual. The shared solution permits web hosting providers to offer their customers inexpensive prices. It usually includes intuitive Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at ByoHosting provide, and lets everyone administer their web sites without worrying about server installation and maintenance procedures, which are entirely handled by the hosting accounts provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual private web server clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The private virtual web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated server solution, and is a very appropriate solution for anyone who would like to have, for instance, an audio or video streaming site or a community web portal. The circumstance that you need to deal with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a huge benefit if you really need to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most circumstances much more high-priced than shared hosting or VPS hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting web server then? The reply is rather simple. If your firm has a resource-requiring website, or simply has very specific web server setup and security requirements, the most intelligent option is a dedicated web hosting server that you or your admins can administer directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are granted full root access and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and messing with your web portals.
