An explanation of site hosting

As its name indicates, web hosting is a service, which involves hosting online content. There are different forms and kinds of hosting, depending on the goals and on the usage. In spite of that, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the World Wide Web. A host is in fact a web server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which enables people to access it through the Internet. The server's architecture and its limitations are determined by the sort of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.

What are the various types of hosting?

Based on the goal, the business hosting solution may be:

File Storage Hosting - this form of web hosting permits the users to store their files on a certain web server. With the regular file web hosting solution, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the user that's using the service. This web hosting solution mainly refers to backups of computers , documents, private files and even other hosting servers. This service may also impose certain limitations in relation to the disk storage space and the root-level access. There may also be web traffic quota limitations, but that depends on the actual web hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is very similar to the previous web hosting service form. In spite of that, in contrast with the file web hosting solution, the warez web hosting service is utilized for propagating copyrighted content without the sanction of the patent owner. To cut a long story short - it refers to the illicit propagation of files and documents. There are multiple methods for this to be achieved, but the two essential ways are - through plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first one entails either a particular site, or, most typically, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download copyrighted files free of cost. The second way entails a peer-to-peer connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, through which people swap files between each other. There aren't many web space hosting companies that allow that form of web hosting on their web servers, chiefly owing to all the legal complications that it presupposes. Typically such websites are hosted on private dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by third-party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Web Hosting - this service is used with both shared web hosting and dedicated servers, based on the user's intention. If you would like to create your own private SMTP email server, then you will require either a virtual server or a dedicated hosting server that offers the access level needed to execute such a task. For regular electronic mail hosting purposes, however, you can set up an ordinary shared web space hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's very used, because the site hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, usually belonging to separate firms.

Web Page Hosting - the most popular and widely used hosting service these days. It's used for hosting website files, whose sort is dependent on the Operating System the web hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand concrete hosting server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be shown accurately on the Web. This type of web hosting may contain data space and traffic quota limitations, root-level access and CPU usage limitations.

Based on the aims and on the functions, the user should select the kind of web hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the web hosting vendor that's going to furnish it. There are various types of hosting servers, depending on the specifications and the webspace hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server offers a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small and medium size sites, which do not demand huge quotas of disk storage and traffic.

Semi-Dedicated Servers Hosting - they are based on the very same principle as the shared site hosting servers. Nevertheless, there are much less clients sharing the same web server. That is why, each of them will enjoy a bigger share of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, server storage space, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting heavy online portals that do not require server root access.

Virtual Servers - the VPSs are perfect for middle scale web pages, which do demand root-level access to the server's config files. Typically, there are a bunch of virtual server accounts located on the same machine. Nonetheless, each of them is autonomous from the rest and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a colossal quantity of system resources. It also includes complete server root access, which makes it an excellent solution for any kind of web page that requires a web site hosting solution.

The only question that's left is:

Which hosting provider should I pick?

As mentioned above, there are just a few hosting companies offering warez hosting solutions due to judicial problems. Such companies are being shut down virtually every month. For that reason, if you wish to provide such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared web space hosting service is the most widely spread kind of hosting service. Therefore, each and every web hosting company provides it. Not all of them, though, provide solutions such as VPS servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated servers. Most of the small sized hosting vendors do not have the resources demanded for maintaining those services. That's why it's invariably best to settle on a bigger hosting company that can supply its customers with all the services that they request. You can quickly ID such web hosting companies by the types of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the clientele. For instance, some web hosts permit you to commence with a smaller web site hosting plan and afterwards shift to a bigger one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is very suitable, because you do not need to migrate web portals between hosting servers and there is no danger of suffering service disturbances because of all the predicaments that may show up. Providers like OOZLE MEDIA offer all kinds of services and possess the necessary web server resources and staff to ensure that their customers will not chance upon any problems when swapping services, which is what a top hosting firm is actually all about.
