Web Hosting Explained

Web hosting is a sort of Internet service that enables individuals and corporations to render their web pages viewable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are firms that offer disk drive storage space on a hosting server held in a datacenter and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become an essential element in every individual's daily routine. It gives you the option to gain some side cash, but can also be a major source of income. In order to place adverts on your website or to advertise goods that you offer, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will make sure that your web site is secure and constantly up and running. But how do you find one that is moderately priced and yet reliable enough?

The solution hosting corporations have brought forth is named shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, a lot of shared hosting account owners are accommodated on the same web server. There are strict limitations on the resources that each user account can in fact utilize, thus making certain that they do not meddle with each other. The shared hosting solution offers decent performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one single person. The shared web hosting solution permits web hosting companies to offer their clients inexpensive prices. It normally comes with user-friendly Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Lifenethost provide, and permits everybody to administer their sites without worrying about server configuration and maintenance procedures, which are handled solely by the hosting provider.

VPS web hosting

With the VPS web hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual web server hosting account owners, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The virtual server solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated server solution, and is a very good solution for anyone who desires to launch, for instance, an audio or video streaming website or a community web portal. The circumstance that you have to cope with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a great advantage if you really have to make certain server configuration modifications - something that would be impossible on a shared server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of cases much more high-priced than shared web hosting or VPS web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is very simple. If your firm has a data-heavy web page, or simply has very explicit web server setup and security requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated web server that you or your server admins can administer directly. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You get root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these system resources and messing with your web pages.
