A description of hosting

As its name hints, web hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and types of web hosting, based on the aims and on the usage. Even so, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the Internet. A host is actually a server that is linked to the Internet and has its own IP address, which permits users to gain access to it via the Web. The server's architecture and its resources are dependent on the type of hosting solution it will be used for.

What are the various types of web hosting?

Based on the usage, the business website hosting solution may be:

File Hosting - this type of web hosting allows the users to store their files on a given server. With the regular file hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the person that's availing of the service. This hosting service traditionally appertains to backups of computers , documents, personal files and even other servers. This solution may also contain given restrictions in relation to the data storage and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth quota limits, but that is dependent on the given host.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is quite similar to the previous web hosting service type. In spite of that, unlike the file hosting service, the warez hosting solution is utilized for distributing licensed work without being green-lighted by the license holder. In brief - it is associated with the unauthorized circulation of files and materials. There are many approaches for this to be done, but the 2 main approaches are - via plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first one involves either a particular website, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download copyrighted content free of charge. The second method involves a P2P connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which people transmit files between each other. There are just a few web page hosting corporations that permit that form of hosting on their web hosting servers, mostly owing to all the judicial entanglements that it presupposes. Typically such sites are hosted on personal dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Web Hosting - this solution is utilized with both shared web site hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the customer's intention. If you desire to have your very own personal SMTP e-mail server, then you will require either a VPS web server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the access level needed to carry out such a task. For common electronic mail web hosting ends, however, you can create a simple shared web page hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely used, since the site hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two separate servers, usually belonging to separate hosting providers.

Site Hosting - the most widespread and universally used hosting service as of now. It's used for hosting website files, whose kind is determined by the Operating System the web hosting server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files need specific web server OSs, or else they won't be shown properly on the Web. This sort of web hosting may impose server storage and traffic restrictions, root-level access and CPU usage restrictions.

Depending on the purpose and on the usage, the customer should pick the kind of web hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the webspace hosting supplier that's going to furnish it. There are several sorts of web servers, depending on the specs and the website hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server offers a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small sized and medium size sites, which do not demand vast quotas of web storage and bandwidth.

Semi-Dedicated Servers - they are based on the very same principle as the shared hosting servers. Still, there are much less clients hosted on the same web server. Because of that, each of them will receive a greater quota of the server's resources like RAM, disk space, web traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting big websites that do not demand complete server root access.

VPS hosting - the virtual web hosting servers are perfect for middle sized web sites, which do need root access to the web server's configuration files. Usually, there are a few private virtual hosting server accounts sharing the same server. Nonetheless, each of them is autonomous from the others and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server Hosting - a completely dedicated machine set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a huge quantity of resources. It also provides root privileges, which renders it an ideal solution for any type of site that needs a web space hosting solution.

The sole question that's left is:

Which webspace hosting provider should I select?

As mentioned above, there aren't many hosting companies offering warez web hosting solutions due to legal problems. Such web hosting companies are being closed down virtually every month. For that reason, if you desire to launch such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared site hosting service is the most widely spread type of hosting service. Hence, each and every web hosting company provides it. Not all of them, though, provide services such as private virtual servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the smaller hosting corporations do not have the means demanded for maintaining those solutions. That is the reason why it's always best to pick a larger hosting company that can provide its customers with all the services that they are looking for. You can quickly identify such web hosts by the types of solutions that they are providing and by the manner in which they introduce them to the clientele. For example, certain hosts allow you to begin with a smaller web space hosting account and then upgrade to a more powerful one, if you consider it obligatory to do so. This is very convenient, because you do not need to transfer web sites between web servers and there is no possibility of experiencing service interruptions due to all the complications that may appear. Web hosting companies like PAZ HOSTING are offering all kinds of services and possess the required hosting server resources and staff to guarantee that their clients will not run into any troubles when swapping services, which is what a top hosting distributor is in fact all about.
