An explanation of hosting

As its name suggests, web hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of hosting, based on the goals and on the objectives. Nevertheless, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Internet. A web host is in fact a web hosting service that is linked to the Internet and has its own Internet Protocol address, which enables people to get access to it through the Internet. The web hosting server's architecture and its resources are dependent on the kind of hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the different types of web hosting?

Depending on the function, the hosting solution may be:

File Storage Hosting - this form of hosting allows the clients to accommodate their files on a certain web server. With the regular file web hosting solution, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the client that's availing of the service. This web hosting solution usually entails backups of PCs , documents, personal files and even other web hosting servers. This service may also involve given limitations in relation to the web storage and the root privileges. There may also be traffic quota limitations, but that is dependent on the particular hosting provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is very similar to the previous hosting service type. Still, unlike the file web hosting solution, the warez hosting solution is utilized for distributing copyrighted content without being given the green light by the patent possessor. In brief - it appertains to the illicit propagation of files and docs. There are multiple methods for this to be executed, but the two essential methods are - via plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first approach entails either a certain web portal, or, most commonly, just a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented files for free. The second approach involves a P2P connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users transfer files between each other. There aren't many website hosting corporations that allow that type of web hosting on their web hosting servers, mostly due to all the judicial entanglements that it entails. Commonly such websites are hosted on personal dedicated servers that are registered by third-party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared site hosting and dedicated hosting servers, based on the customer's intention. If you would like to set up your own personal SMTP electronic mail server, then you will require either a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web server that provides the access level needed to accomplish such a task. For normal email hosting purposes, however, you can open an ordinary shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a solution that's widely popular, since the web site hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by 2 different web servers, often owned by separate hosting providers.

Web Page Hosting - the most famous and regularly utilized hosting service at the moment. It's used for hosting web site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the hosting server is running - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand different server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be displayed properly on the Web. This form of web hosting may impose web storage space and traffic limits, root-level access and central processing unit usage limits.

Depending on the mission and on the usage, the client should select the kind of hosting server that he demands for his project, and, of course, the web hosting firm that's going to supply it. There are several sorts of web hosting servers, depending on the configuration and the webspace hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared web server offers a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small scale and medium sized web pages, which do not require big quantities of web storage and web traffic.

Semi-Dedicated Hosting - they function on the very same principle as the shared hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much fewer users accommodated on the same web hosting server. Hence, each of them will enjoy a greater quota of the web server's resources like RAM, data space, traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting enormous online portals that do not demand full root privileges.

Virtual Private Server - the virtual private web hosting servers are perfect for middle size web portals, which do need root-level access to the hosting server's config files. Usually, there are a number of Virtual Private Server hosting accounts located on the same server. Still, each of them is independent from the other ones and has its own OS.

Dedicated Hosting - a fully dedicated web hosting server configured and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a gigantic quantity of resources. It also provides full root privileges, which renders it a perfect solution for any sort of site that needs a web hosting solution.

The only question that's left is:

Which web site hosting company should I settle on?

As mentioned, there are just a few web hosting providers offering warez web hosting services due to judicial complications. Such hosting companies are being closed down almost every month. Because of that, if you desire to run such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared webspace hosting solution is the most widespread type of hosting service. So, each site hosting distributor offers it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as private virtual servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated servers. Most of the small sized web space hosting vendors do not have the means needed for offering those services. That's why it's always best to opt for a bigger hosting company that can provide its clients with all the solutions that they are searching for. You can quickly identify such hosts by the kinds of solutions that they are providing and by the way that they introduce them to the clients. For instance, some hosts allow you to begin with a small sized web space hosting plan and then move to a more powerful one, if you find it necessary to do so. This is very suitable, since you do not need to transmit sites between hosting servers and there is no danger of suffering service interruptions due to all the complications that may occur. Web hosting providers such as DALJ GROUP are offering all types of solutions and have the needed server resources and personnel to guarantee that their clients will not experience any predicaments when swapping services, which is what a top hosting corporation is in fact all about.
