A description of web space hosting

As its name indicates, web hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of hosting, based on the goals and on the usage. 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 connected to the Internet and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which allows people to get access to it via the Web. The server's configuration and its limitations are dependent on the form of hosting service it will be utilized for.

What are the different types of web hosting?

Based on the function, the business hosting service may be:

File Storage Hosting - this form of hosting allows the customers to stash their files on a specific server. With the traditional file hosting service, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the client that's availing of the service. This web hosting solution usually applies to backups of computers , documents, private files and even other servers. This service may also involve certain limits when it comes to the web storage and the root privileges. There may also be traffic quota limits, but that is dependent on the given host.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is comparable with the previous hosting service form. In spite of that, unlike the file web hosting solution, the warez hosting service is utilized for disseminating copyrighted materials without being given the OK to do so by the copyright proprietor. To put it briefly - it entails the criminal dissemination of files and docs. There are multiple ways for this to be attained, but the 2 principal ways are - via simple HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first way entails either some web portal, or, most typically, simply 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 entails a P2P connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, via which people share files between each other. There are very few hosting vendors that permit that form of hosting on their hosting servers, chiefly because of all the legal entanglements that it presupposes. Generally such sites are hosted on private dedicated hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party companies either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared web space hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, depending on the customer's wish. If you wish to establish your own private SMTP mail server, then you will require either a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated server that provides the level of access required to execute such an operation. For normal e-mail hosting purposes, however, you can create an ordinary shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely famous, because the web hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by 2 different servers, often belonging to different web hosting providers.

Web Page Hosting - the most famous and largely utilized hosting service as of now. It's utilized for hosting web site files, whose type is determined by the Operating System the hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files request different server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be shown appropriately on the World Wide Web. This form of hosting may involve web space and traffic limits, root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the purpose and on the functions, the client should choose the type of web server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web space hosting supplier that's going to supply it. There are various sorts of servers, depending on the specifications and the web space hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared web page hosting server supplies a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small scale and middle sized web sites, which do not demand enormous amounts of web space and traffic.

Semi-Dedicated Hosting - they work on the same principle as the shared web servers. Nonetheless, there are much less clients sharing the same web hosting server. For that reason, each of them will have a larger share of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting big web pages that do not need complete server root access.

VPS hosting - the virtual private web servers are excellent for medium size websites, which do need root access to the web server's configuration files. Traditionally, there are a number of Virtual Private Server accounts placed on the same physical machine. However, each of them is independent from the rest and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Servers Hosting - a completely dedicated hosting server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a mammoth quantity of system resources. It also offers full root-level access, which renders it an excellent solution for any kind of web page that requires a website hosting solution.

The only question that remains is:

Which hosting vendor should I pick?

As mentioned above, there are very few web hosts offering warez web hosting services due to legal complications. Such hosting companies are being closed down almost every month. Because of that, if you would like to offer such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared web hosting service is the most famous kind of hosting service. Therefore, each and every site hosting firm provides it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as virtual private hosting servers, semi-dedicated hosting servers and dedicated servers. Most of the smaller web space hosting corporations do not have the resources required for maintaining those services. That is the reason why it's always best to pick a larger host that can supply its clients with all the services that they are searching for. You can easily ID such web hosts by the types of solutions that they are making available and by the manner in which they present them to the customers. For instance, some web hosting companies allow you to start with a smaller site hosting package and subsequently move to a bigger one, if you find it necessary to do so. This is very convenient, because you do not have to migrate web pages between hosting servers and there is no possibility of experiencing network downtime because of all the predicaments that may occur. Hosting companies such as PJWebz provide all types of solutions and have the necessary hosting server resources and staff to assure that their clients will not come across any complications when changing services, which is what a top hosting company is actually all about.
