Web Hosting Description

Web hosting is a type of online service that allows individuals and organizations to make their websites available on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are companies that offer hard disk space on a server placed in a datacenter and ensure continuous Internet access.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become an indispensable element in everyone's daily routine. It gives you the opportunity to gain extra money, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to incorporate adverts on your web page or to publicize a service that you sell, you always need a hosting solution, which will ensure that your web site is secure and constantly visible. But how do you discover one that is modestly priced and yet reliable enough?

The solution web hosting companies have introduced is named shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, lots of shared hosting accounts are hosted on the same web hosting server. There are harsh limitations on the system resources that each shared hosting account can in fact resort to, thus guaranteeing that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers good performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated hosting server, which is utilized by only one person. The shared solution enables web hosting firms to offer their clients reasonable prices. It typically includes intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at funhostr provide, and permits everyone to manage their websites without worrying about server installation and maintenance procedures, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual server users, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The private virtual server solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server solution, and is a perfect solution for anyone who would like to set up, for instance, an audio or video streaming site or a community website. The circumstance that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge asset if you indeed have to implement certain server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most circumstances much more expensive than shared hosting or Virtual Private Server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated hosting server then? The reply is rather simple. If your firm has a intense-traffic web site, or simply has very specific server setup and security requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated web server that you or your server administrators can administer directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no importance. You are bestowed with full root-level access and can utilize 100% of the physical machine's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your websites.
