What Does Web Hosting Signify?

Web hosting is a type of online service that enables individuals and corporations to make their web sites available online. Hosting providers are firms that offer disk drive storage space on a hosting server held in a data center and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The Internet has become a vital fragment of our everyday routine. It offers you the opportunity to gain extra cash, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to place commercials on your website or to promote a service that you sell, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will make sure that your website is secure and always reachable. But how do you discover one that is cheap and yet dependable enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution hosting corporations have brought forth is named shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, a lot of hosting users are accommodated on the same web hosting server. There are stringent limitations on the resources that each web hosting account can actually utilize, thus ensuring that they do not intervene with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers decent performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one customer. The shared web hosting solution enables web hosting firms to offer their clients competitive prices. It typically comes with intuitive Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at MorrisDNS provide, and allows everybody to administer their web portals without bothering about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting distributor.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other VPS server hosting account holders, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The private virtual web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web hosting solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who would like to establish, for example, an audio or video streaming web site or a community site. The circumstance that you have to cope with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a huge asset if you really need to implement certain server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of circumstances much more expensive than shared hosting or private virtual web server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated hosting web server then? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a data-heavy site, or simply has very precise server architecture and security requirements, the best option is a dedicated hosting server that you or your server administrators can administer directly. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no importance. You obtain root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your online portals.
