Description of Hosting

Hosting is a type of Internet service that allows persons and businesses to render their websites available on the web. Hosting service providers are firms that offer content storage space on a web server housed in a data center facility and guarantee constant website availability.

Where do you begin?

The Internet is an integral component of everybody's daily life. It gives you the option to gain a little side cash, but can also be a major source of income. In order to place commercials on your web page or to publicize a product or a service that you offer, you always need a hosting solution, which will make sure that your site is safe and constantly up and running. But how do you find one that is reasonably priced and yet stable enough?

The solution hosting distributors have introduced is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, numerous web hosting clients are accommodated on one and the very same hosting server. There are harsh restrictions on the system resources that each shared web hosting account can actually resort to, thus ensuring that they do not meddle with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers decent performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is used by just one customer. The shared hosting solution enables hosting providers to offer their customers attractive prices. It typically includes user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at PIXELSPECK provide, and allows everybody to administer their web pages without worrying about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are handled solely by the hosting services provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other private virtual server web hosting clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated server hosting solution, and is a perfect option for anyone who wants to create, for instance, a live streaming website or a community web site. The circumstance that you need to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge upside if you really need to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most instances much more high-priced than shared or virtual web server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated hosting server then? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-demanding site, or just has very special web server architecture and security requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated web server that you or your server admins can manage directly. For someone who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is not a problem. You gain complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
