You have an idea that you wish to transform into a site? Your very first step should be to retain your enthusiasm and find a place for your web site on the World Wide Web so that it will be always visible to the whole world.

Where should you host your web site?

Since the number of web sites online has grown rapidly during the last few years, the demand for web hosting services has also lead to the emergence of innumerable web hosting service providers. These are firms that offer you hard disk space for your own web site on their web servers.

Varieties of hosting services

The range of web hosting services varies enormously, so do the needs of the web site proprietors. The most basic hosting type is the small-size file hosting solution, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a web interface. A lot of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer this service free of charge. Personal web site proprietors and firms can also get website hosting services from various hosting suppliers. Personal web hosting services are typically either free, ad-sponsored, or affordably priced. Business website hosting services typically are more expensive, but because of the enormous competition on the web hosting marketplace, an escalating number of hosting distributors, like us at funhostr, distribute business website hosting services at inexpensive prices and with flexible invoicing periods.

Kinds of sites and their requirements

The free-of-charge hosting platform is generally sufficient for personal web pages such as portfolios or online blogs. A more resource-requiring web site, like a community website or a corporate page, necessitates a more advanced web hosting platform that provides database support and web application development platforms (e.g. PHP). If you would like to build an online shop, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) must be supported by the web hosting solutions provider of your choice. At present, Secure Sockets Layer certificates are provided by most hosting corporations.

The web hosting Control Panel

The web hosting solutions provider normally also provides a Control Panel interface for managing your web content, e-mail accounts, electronic mail aliases, domain names, DNS records, etc.

Service reliability

When picking a hosting packages provider, website availability is a very essential factor. The accessibility of a web site is estimated on a yearly basis by taking into account the time when the website is publicly available and visible on the World Wide Web. Network and service uptime guarantees, therefore, should be accurately taken into account when ordering a web hosting plan. You should re-examine the SLAs and the ToS of the hosting solutions provider of your choosing in advance. Reading reviews from existing clients is also a quite logical move before you decide to subscribe.

The shared hosting platform

The most widely used and affordably priced type of web hosting service is the shared web hosting solution. It offers round-the-clock support, which is a big upside for users who would not like to cope with server maintenance procedures, but could also hinder clients who want to have more authority over the web server. For such customers, a virtual private servers or a dedicated hosting would be more suitable. Most standard apps and scripts work okay on a shared web hosting server. Besides, the shared web hosting solution is more affordably priced than other kinds of hosting solutions, such as the dedicated hosting, since the web hosting solutions provider divides the shared server among multiple customers. The shared hosting platform usually involves system resource usage restrictions that guarantee that the different customers do not intervene with each other and that the hosting server remains stable.

Managing your shared website hosting account

Shared website hosting plans usually include a web-based Control Panel, such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, and so on. The majority of the large-size web hosting suppliers, again like us at funhostr, avail of their own personal custom-made hosting Control Panel user interface.

Server maintenance

With the shared hosting platform, the hosting services provider is responsible for administering the web and mail servers, for installing web server software, software updates and patches, and for providing tech support to its customers. The majority of servers are based on the Linux OS. The web hosting vendor's admins are responsible for maintaining the Operating System up to date, unless you have a dedicated web hosting server and complete root-level access.
