What is Website Hosting?

Web Hosting is a kind of Internet service that enables persons and corporations to render their web sites discoverable online. Hosting service providers are firms that offer space on a server held in a data center and ensure uninterrupted Internet access.

Where do you start?

The Internet is a key factor in everyone's everyday routine. It gives you the chance to gain additional profit, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to incorporate advertisements on your website or to popularize a service that you sell, you invariably require a website hosting service, which will make sure that your website is secure and always available. But how do you find one that is affordable and yet dependable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution web hosting corporations have introduced is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, a lot of shared web hosting account owners are hosted on the very same server. There are strict limitations on the system resources that each user account can in fact resort to, thus making sure that they do not interfere with each other. The shared solution offers acceptable performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is used by just one individual. The shared solution permits website hosting distributors to offer their customers attractive prices. It usually includes easy-to-use Control Panel software, as is the case with Maxx Web Host, and allows everybody to manage their web pages without bothering about server setup and maintenance tasks, which are handled solely by the website hosting provider.

VPS Web Hosting

With the VPS server hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other private virtual web server customers, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The virtual private hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting solution, and is a perfect solution for anyone who wishes to set up, for instance, a live streaming web site or a community web portal. The circumstance that you need to cope with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge advantage if you really have to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared web server.

Dedicated Web Server Hosting

Dedicated web hosting servers are in the majority of cases much more high-priced than shared web hosting or VPS web hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated hosting web server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your corporation has a content-heavy web site, or simply has very exact web server configuration and security requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated hosting server that you or your admins can manage directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You have complete root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web sites.
