Hosting is a kind of Internet service that enables individuals and firms to make their sites visible on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are firms that offer disk drive storage space on a web server placed in a data center and ensure constant website accessibility.

Where do you start?

The Internet has become an integral factor in our everyday life. It gives you the possibility to gain additional profit, but can also be a major source of income. In order to place adverts on your site or to advertise a product or a service that you offer, you invariably require a hosting service, which will guarantee that your site is protected and always visible. But how do you find one that is reasonably priced and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution web hosting service providers have come up with is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, many hosting clients are hosted on the very same server. There are harsh limitations on the system resources that each account can actually utilize, thus making certain that they do not intervene with each other. The shared solution offers decent performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is utilized by only one customer. The shared hosting solution permits hosting corporations to offer their clients attractive prices. It usually comes with intuitive web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Web Host EZ provide, and allows everybody to manage their web pages without worrying about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting firm.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other VPS hosting clients, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The virtual web hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who wants to make, for instance, an audio or video streaming site or a social networking site. The fact that you need to take care of the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a great advantage if you really have to make some server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared web hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most cases much more high-priced than shared hosting or virtual server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated web hosting server then? The reply is very simple. If your corporation has a resource-swallowing web site, or just has very exact server setup and security requirements, the most intelligent choice is a dedicated web server that you or your technicians can administer directly. For somebody who is ready to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no concern. You gain full server root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your sites.
