Hosting is a type of online service that enables persons and companies to make their sites reachable online. Hosting service providers are firms that offer hard disk storage space on a server kept in a datacenter and guarantee continuous Internet connection.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become an indispensable part of every person's everyday agenda. It gives you the opportunity to gain money on the side, but can also be a main source of income. In order to incorporate adverts on your web page or to promote a commodity that you offer, you always require a hosting service, which will make sure that your web page is secure and continually reachable. But how do you discover one that is moderately priced and yet stable enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution hosting corporations have come up with is named shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, multiple hosting clients are accommodated on the very same hosting server. There are strict limits on the system resources that each hosting account can in fact resort to, thus making sure that they do not interfere with each other. The shared solution offers satisfactory performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is used by just one single person. The shared web hosting solution permits hosting suppliers to offer their customers attractive prices. It usually includes easy-to-use Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at www.vip-host.net provide, and lets everyone manage their online portals without bothering about server configuration 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 private virtual web server hosting account owners, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated hosting web server solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who wishes to have, for instance, a live streaming web site or a social networking website. The circumstance that you need to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge advantage if you indeed have to make some server configuration modifications - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most situations much more expensive than shared hosting or VPS server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting server then? The explanation is rather simple. If your company has a heavy resource-demanding web portal, or simply has very special web server setup and security requirements, the most relevant choice is a dedicated web hosting server that you or your techs can administer directly. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are given full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and meddling with your online portals.
