Shared Hosting Clarified

As its name signifies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various forms and types of hosting, depending on the goals and on the usage. Still, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Internet. A web host is in fact a web server that is linked to the Internet and has its own IP address, which permits people to access it through the Web. The web server's configuration and its limitations depend on the kind of web hosting service it will be utilized for.

What are the various types of hosting?

Based on the purpose, the hosting service may be:

File Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the customers to save their files on a particular hosting server. With the typical file hosting service, the files that are deposited may only be accessed by the person that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution traditionally is connected with backups of computers , docs, private files and even other servers. This solution may also have certain limitations in terms of the web storage and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth restrictions, but that depends on the given host.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is resembling the previous hosting service type. Nonetheless, unlike the file web hosting solution, the warez hosting solution is utilized for circulating proprietary content without being given the go-ahead by the license owner. In brief - it pertains to the illegitimate propagation of files and materials. There are numerous methods for this to be accomplished, but the 2 principal methods are - through simple HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first one involves either a certain web page, or, most typically, just a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download proprietary files for free. The second approach entails a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent web servers, via which people share files between each other. There are very few website hosting vendors that allow that form of hosting on their hosting servers, mostly owing to all the legal problems that it involves. Usually such websites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by 3rd party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Web Hosting - this service is utilized with both shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, depending on the customer's wish. If you would like to build your own personal SMTP email server, then you will require either a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting server that offers the access level needed to carry out such an assignment. For traditional email web hosting purposes, though, you can utilize a plain shared hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a service that's very used, since the web hosting and the email hosting services are being served by 2 separate servers, usually belonging to separate web hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most widespread and frequently utilized hosting service these days. It's used for hosting site files, whose type is determined by the OS the web server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files need different server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be shown accurately on the Web. This form of web hosting may have web storage space and traffic quota limits, server root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the purpose and on the functions, the user should select the sort of web hosting server that he requires for his work, and, of course, the web hosting firm that's going to supply it. There are different sorts of web hosting servers, based on the configuration and the web hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server includes a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small scale and middle size web portals, which do not demand vast quantities of disk storage space and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they are based on the same principle as the shared hosting servers. Nevertheless, there are much fewer customers hosted on the same server. Therefore, each of them will obtain a bigger share of the server's resources like RAM, server space, traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting immense websites that do not require complete server root access.

Virtual private servers are ideal for medium online portals, which do demand root access to the web server's configuration files. Typically, there are several VPS server accounts sharing the same machine. However, each of them is autonomous from the rest and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated machine set up and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a mammoth quantity of resources. It also gives complete server root access, which makes it a perfect platform for any kind of online portal that demands a web hosting service.

The sole question that remains is:

Which web hosting distributor should I pick?

As already mentioned, there aren't many companies providing warez hosting solutions due to legal entanglements. Such web hosting providers are being closed down virtually every month. Because of that, if you desire to provide such a service, you should do it on your very own personal computer. The shared website hosting service is the most famous kind of web hosting service. Hence, every hosting vendor provides it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as Virtual Private Servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small sized web hosting distributors do not have the resources required for offering those solutions. You can quickly recognize such hosts by the sorts of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the clientele. For instance, some providers allow you to kick off with a smaller web hosting plan and then move to a bigger one, if you find it obligatory to do so. This is quite suitable, because you do not have to migrate web portals between hosting servers and there is no chance of suffering service downtime because of all the predicaments that may arise.

We, at wild-hosting provide all types of services and have the necessary hosting server resources and staff to ensure that their clients will not come across any predicaments when swapping services, which is what a top hosting supplier is actually all about.
