An explanation of web page hosting

As its name suggests, web hosting is a service, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of hosting, depending on the purpose and on the objectives. Still, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the World Wide Web. A host is in fact a web hosting service that is linked to the Web and has its own IP address, which enables users to gain access to it via the World Wide Web. The hosting server's configuration and its limitations are determined by the form of hosting solution it will be used for.

What are the different forms of web hosting?

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

File Storage Hosting - this form of hosting permits the customers to accommodate their files on a certain server. With the normal file web hosting service, the files that are stashed may only be accessed by the customer that's using the service. This hosting service typically is connected with backups of personal computers , documents, private files and even other servers. This service may also involve given limitations with regard to the web storage space and the root privileges. There may also be bandwidth restrictions, but that is dependent on the particular provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is very similar to the previous web hosting service type. Nonetheless, in contrast with the file web hosting solution, the warez web hosting solution is used for circulating patented content without the authorization of the patent owner. In short - it pertains to the illegal propagation of files and materials. There are many methods for this to be performed, but the two principal approaches are - through plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through P2P connections. The first method involves either a given website, or, most typically, just a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download patented documents free of cost. The second approach involves a P2P connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, via which users transfer files between each other. There are not many web space hosting companies that allow that type of hosting on their web servers, mostly owing to all the judicial troubles that it presupposes. Generally such websites are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Email Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared web space hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, depending on the customer's wish. If you would like to have your own personal SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the level of access needed to perform such an assignment. For ordinary electronic mail hosting ends, however, you can set up a regular shared web page hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's very famous, since the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different web servers, often belonging to separate web hosts.

Web Page Hosting - the most widespread and frequently used hosting service now. It's used for hosting site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the web hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different types of files require specific web server OSs, otherwise they won't be exhibited correctly on the Web. This sort of web hosting may involve web space and bandwidth limitations, root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the purpose and on the usage, the customer should choose the sort of hosting server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the website hosting corporation that's going to furnish it. There are several kinds of hosting servers, depending on the configuration and the web site hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared hosting server supplies a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and medium size sites, which do not require large amounts of web storage and traffic.

Semi-Dedicated Servers - they are based on the very same principle as the shared hosting servers. In spite of that, there are much fewer clients sharing the same server. Because of that, each of them will enjoy a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, storage space, bandwidth and CPU. Excellent for hosting huge sites that do not demand full server root privileges.

VPS hosting - the virtual private hosting servers are perfect for medium size web sites, which do demand root access to the web hosting server's configuration files. Traditionally, there are a few private virtual server hosting accounts situated on the same server. Yet, each of them is independent from the other ones and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated physical server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a huge amount of system resources. It also offers complete server root access, which makes it the optimal solution for any type of web page that requires a web hosting solution.

The sole question that remains is:

Which website hosting corporation should I opt for?

As stated above, there are not many companies providing warez web hosting services due to judicial problems. Such providers are being closed down practically every month. For that reason, if you want to establish such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared web page hosting solution is the most widely spread kind of web hosting service. For that reason, every web site hosting firm offers it. Not all of them, however, provide services such as VPS servers, semi-dedicated web servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the small scale web space hosting firms do not have the resources required for maintaining those services. Therefore it's invariably best to pick a larger web hosting company that can provide its clients with all the services that they necessitate. You can effortlessly ID such web hosts by the types of services that they are supplying and by the way that they introduce them to the customers. For instance, certain companies allow you to kick off with a small scale web hosting plan and then shift to a bigger one, if you consider it necessary to do so. This is extremely suitable, since you do not need to migrate web portals between servers and there is no danger of experiencing downtime due to all the predicaments that may show up. Hosting companies like EnCenterWEB offer all sorts of services and have the necessary server resources and personnel to guarantee that their customers will not stumble upon any problems when changing services, which is what a top hosting provider is actually all about.
