Hosting is a kind of Internet service that enables persons and companies to render their online portals available on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are firms that offer hard drive space on a hosting server housed in a data center and ensure continuous website availability.

Where do you start?

The World Wide Web is an essential component of everybody's everyday agenda. It gives you the ability to gain some side cash, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to display commercials on your website or to popularize a service that you sell, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your website is safe and constantly visible. But how do you discover one that is modestly priced and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution web hosts have come up with is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, multiple hosting users are accommodated on one and the same server. There are rigid restrictions on the resources that each shared hosting account can in fact resort to, thus guaranteeing that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers acceptable performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is utilized by just one person. The shared solution allows hosting distributors to offer their clients inexpensive prices. It typically includes intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at MyGreatHost provide, and permits everyone to manage their web sites without worrying about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting services provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other private virtual server customers, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The virtual private web hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server solution, and is a very good option for anyone who wishes to establish, for example, a live streaming web site or a community web site. The circumstance that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be an enormous upside if you indeed have to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of instances much more high-priced than shared or private virtual server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated hosting server then? The reply is pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-consuming web site, or simply has very special server architecture and safety requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated hosting server that you or your admins can administer directly. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You are given complete root-level access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web pages.
