Hosting is a sort of Internet service that enables individuals and organizations to make their websites discoverable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are firms that offer disk drive space on a web hosting server physically located in a datacenter facility and ensure constant network connectivity.

Where do you start?

The Internet is a vital component of everyone's daily agenda. It offers you the chance to gain a bit of cash on the side, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to put commercials on your web site or to popularize goods that you offer, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your online portal is secure and continually up and running. But how do you discover one that is reasonably priced and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution hosting service providers have come up with is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, numerous user accounts are hosted on one and the very same hosting server. There are austere limitations on the system resources that each shared web hosting account can actually utilize, thus guaranteeing that they do not intervene with each other. The shared hosting solution offers acceptable performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by only one single person. The shared hosting solution enables hosting vendors to offer their clients affordable prices. It typically includes easy-to-use hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Domains Depot provide, and allows everybody to administer their websites without bothering about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are handled solely by the hosting plans provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other Virtual Private Server web hosting users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The virtual server web hosting solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated server web hosting solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who wants to host, for instance, a live streaming site or a community web site. The fact that you have to take care of the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a great plus if you indeed need to make certain server configuration modifications - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most instances much more expensive than shared web hosting or virtual web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web hosting server then? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a heavy-content website, or just has very explicit web server architecture and safety requirements, the smartest option is a dedicated hosting web server that you or your technicians can administer directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and stability, the greater price is of no concern. You are given root access and can use 100% of the physical server's resources without anyone else using these resources and messing with your web sites.
