An explanation of site hosting

As its name suggests, web hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are different varieties and kinds of hosting, based on the aims and on the objectives. In spite of that, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the Internet. A host is actually a hosting server that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which enables users to access it through the World Wide Web. The web hosting server's configuration and its limitations are dependent on the form of web hosting service it will be used for.

What are the different types of hosting?

Based on the usage, the business website hosting service may be:

File Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the users to deposit their files on a certain server. With the normal file hosting service, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution normally is associated with backups of computers , documents, personal files and even other web servers. This solution may also have certain limits with regard to the data space and the root access. There may also be bandwidth limits, but that is dependent on the particular host.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting solution is quite similar to the previous hosting service type. Yet, in contrast with the file storage web hosting solution, the warez hosting solution is used for distributing licensed content without being given the go-ahead by the licence bearer. In short - it is associated with the criminal circulation of files and materials. There are multiple ways for this to be attained, but the two main approaches are - via simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via P2P connections. The first way involves either a specific web portal, or, most often, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thus download copyrighted materials free of cost. The second way entails a P2P connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, through which users share files between each other. There are not many hosting suppliers that permit such type of web hosting on their hosting servers, chiefly due to all the legal troubles that it involves. Usually such web portals are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this solution is used with both shared web space hosting and dedicated web servers, based on the user's desire. If you want to launch your own private SMTP mail server, then you will need either a virtual server or a dedicated web server that offers the level of access needed to perform such a task. For common e-mail web hosting ends, though, you can avail of a standard shared hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a service that's widely famous, because the web page hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by 2 different servers, usually belonging to different providers.

Site Hosting - the most famous and commonly used hosting service nowadays. It's used for hosting site files, whose kind depends on the OS the server is using - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files demand concrete web hosting server Operating Systems, or else they won't be shown accurately on the Internet. This sort of web hosting may include server storage and bandwidth quota limitations, root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the aims and on the functions, the user should pick the sort of web server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the webspace hosting corporation that's going to provide it. There are different types of web servers, based on the specs and the website hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server provides a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and medium web portals, which do not demand big quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-Dedicated Servers - they are based on the same principle as the shared site hosting servers. In spite of that, there are much less customers sharing the same web server. Therefore, each of them will have a larger share of the web server's resources like RAM, server storage, web traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting heavy websites that do not need full server root privileges.

Virtual Servers - the VPS hosting servers are perfect for medium scale web portals, which do require root access to the web server's configuration files. Traditionally, there are a handful of VPS hosting server accounts sharing the same server. Nonetheless, each of them is independent from the others and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Server Hosting - a completely dedicated physical machine set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees an immense quantity of resources. It also offers full server root access, which renders it a perfect platform for any sort of web portal that demands a web space hosting solution.

The sole question that remains is:

Which webspace hosting company should I choose?

As stated above, there are not many web hosting providers offering warez web hosting services due to legal predicaments. Such hosting companies are being closed down virtually every month. That is why, if you desire to create such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared website hosting solution is the most famous kind of hosting service. That is why, each webspace hosting firm provides it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as private virtual web servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small sized web site hosting vendors do not have the resources demanded for maintaining those services. For that reason it's always best to choose a larger host that can furnish its customers with all the solutions that they are looking for. You can easily identify such hosting companies by the types of services that they are supplying and by the manner in which they introduce them to the customers. For example, certain web hosts permit you to kick off with a low-end hosting plan and then upgrade to a bigger one, if you find it compulsory to do so. This is quite convenient, since you do not have to relocate web pages between servers and there is no possibility of facing service outages because of all the problems that may show up. Hosting companies like NETHOST23 offer all sorts of solutions and possess the necessary hosting server resources and staff to guarantee that their customers will not face any predicaments when changing services, which is what a top hosting provider is in fact all about.
