Shared Hosting Unveiled

As its name denotes, shared hosting is a service, which entails hosting online content. There are different forms and kinds of web hosting, depending on the purpose and on the usage. Nevertheless, they all pertain to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Web. A web host is in fact a web server that is connected to the Internet and has its own Internet Protocol address, which permits people to get access to it through the Web. The web server's architecture and its system resources are dependent on the kind of web hosting solution it will be used for.

What are the different types of hosting?

Depending on the mission, the hosting service may be:

File Hosting - this type of web hosting permits the users to keep their files on a given server. With the customary file hosting service, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the person that's using the service. This web hosting solution typically is associated with backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other servers. This service may also involve certain limits when it comes to the web space and the root-level access. There may also be web traffic limitations, but that depends on the actual web host.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous web hosting service form. In spite of that, in contrast with the file hosting solution, the warez web hosting solution is utilized for transmitting licensed materials without being green-lighted by the license proprietor. To cut a long story short - it involves the illicit circulation of files and documents. There are lots of ways for this to be achieved, but the 2 essential methods are - via simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first way entails either a certain website, or, most commonly, just a directory on a web server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download copyrighted docs free of charge. The second approach involves a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, through which people swap files between each other. There are a few web hosting vendors that permit such type of hosting on their web hosting servers, mostly because of all the legal troubles that it presupposes. Generally such websites are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by 3rd party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Email Hosting - this solution is utilized with both shared web hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the user's intention. If you wish to build your very own private SMTP mail server, then you will require either a private virtual server or a dedicated web server that provides the level of access needed to carry out such a task. For conventional e-mail hosting ends, though, you can utilize a normal shared website hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's very famous, because the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two separate servers, usually belonging to separate hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most widespread and immensely used hosting service at the moment. It's used for hosting site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the hosting server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand different web hosting server Operating Systems, or else they won't be shown accurately on the Internet. This form of hosting may have web storage and web traffic limits, server root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the mission and on the usage, the user should choose the sort of web hosting server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the hosting corporation that's going to provide it. There are different types of hosting servers, based on the specifications and the web hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared hosting server provides a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and medium size web sites, which do not need large quantities of server storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they perform on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Even so, there are much fewer clients accommodated on the same hosting server. That is why, each of them will enjoy a larger share of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk storage, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting immense websites that do not require root privileges.

Virtual private servers are excellent for medium size online portals, which do require root-level access to the web hosting server's config files. Commonly, there are a bunch of VPS web server hosting accounts accommodated on the same machine. In spite of that, each of them is autonomous from the others and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated web server set up and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a huge amount of resources. It also provides full root access, which makes it an ideal solution for any type of web portal that demands a website hosting service.

The only question that remains is:

Which website hosting company should I choose?

As already mentioned, there are just a few hosts offering warez web hosting solutions because of legal complications. Such hosting companies are being shut down practically every month. Because of that, if you want to start such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared website hosting service is the most widespread type of hosting service. For that reason, each and every website hosting vendor offers it. Not all of them, though, offer solutions such as private virtual web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the small scale website hosting companies do not have the resources needed for offering those services. You can effortlessly identify such web hosting companies by the types of services that they are offering and by the manner in which they introduce them to the customers. For example, certain hosting providers allow you to start with a small sized website hosting package and then shift to a bigger one, if you find it mandatory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not need to relocate web pages between web hosting servers and there is no risk of facing service disturbances due to all the complications that may occur.
