How Hosting Works

Hosting is a sort of online service that allows individuals and organizations to render their web pages reachable on the Internet. Hosting service providers are firms that offer hard disk storage space on a hosting server housed in a datacenter and ensure continuous Internet connection.

Where do you start?

The Internet is a vital staple in every individual's daily routine. It gives you the chance to gain a bit of cash on the side, but can also be a chief source of income. In order to incorporate advertisements on your web site or to publicize a product or a service that you sell, you invariably require a hosting service, which will ensure that your website is safe and constantly visible. But how do you discover one that is affordably priced and yet reliable enough?

The solution web hosting corporations have brought forth is named shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, multiple user accounts are accommodated on one and the same web server. There are stringent limitations on the resources that each user account can actually utilize, thus making certain that they do not intervene with each other. The shared hosting solution offers acceptable performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is utilized by just one single client. The shared web hosting solution permits hosting corporations to offer their customers attractive prices. It typically includes easy-to-use hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Ceros Host provide, and permits everybody to manage their web portals without worrying about server installation and maintenance procedures, which are taken care of solely by the hosting supplier.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other virtual web server hosting customers, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting server solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who would like to establish, for instance, a live streaming site or a community web site. The circumstance that you need to cope with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a big advantage if you indeed have to implement certain server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of situations much more expensive than shared web hosting or private virtual web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web hosting server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a popular web portal, or just has very explicit web server architecture and security requirements, the most appropriate option would be a dedicated web hosting server that you or your technicians can administer directly. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is not a problem. You have root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your web pages.
