How Website Hosting Functions

Website hosting is a kind of Internet service that permits individuals and firms to render their web pages viewable online. Web hosting service providers are companies that offer disk drive storage space on a web server kept in a datacenter facility and ensure uninterrupted service uptime.

Where do you start?

The World Wide Web has become a crucial element in everybody's daily agenda. It offers you the possibility to earn a bit of cash on the side, but can also be a main source of income. In order to display commercials on your web page or to publicize goods that you sell, you always need a hosting service, which will make certain that your online portal is secure and always accessible. But how do you discover one that is moderately priced and yet dependable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution hosting distributors have come up with is called shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, a lot of shared web hosting account owners are accommodated on the very same web hosting server. There are severe restrictions on the resources that each web hosting account can actually make use of, thus ensuring that they do not meddle with each other. The shared hosting solution offers satisfactory performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is used by only one person. The shared solution enables website hosting vendors to offer their customers moderate prices. It typically includes user-friendly web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at marianahost provide, and enables everyone to manage their sites without bothering about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting vendor.

VPS web hosting

With the VPS web hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other VPS hosting server customers, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS server web hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated web hosting solution, and is a perfect solution for anyone who desires to make, for instance, a live streaming site or a community web portal. The fact that you need to take care of the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a great upside if you indeed need to make some server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Dedicated web hosting servers are in the majority of circumstances much more expensive than shared hosting or private virtual server web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated hosting web server then? The explanation is pretty simple. If your corporation has a high-traffic site, or simply has very explicit web server architecture and safety requirements, the smartest option is a dedicated web hosting server that you or your admins can manage directly. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the greater price is of no importance. You get root access and can use 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your websites.
