As its name suggests, shared hosting is a service, which involves hosting online content. There are different varieties and kinds of web hosting, based on the mission and on the objectives. Nonetheless, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the Internet. A web host is in fact a server that is connected to the Web and has its own IP address, which enables users to gain access to it via the World Wide Web. The hosting server's architecture and its resources are determined by the kind of hosting service it's going to be used for.

What are the different types of web hosting?

Depending on the application, the business website hosting solution may be:

File Storage Hosting - this form of hosting enables the users to lodge their files on a certain web server. With the average file hosting service, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the user that's using the service. This hosting service mainly includes backups of PCs , documents, personal files and even other web servers. This service may also include certain limitations in terms of the disk storage and the root access. There may also be web traffic quota limitations, but that is dependent on the given hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is comparable with the previous hosting service type. Nonetheless, unlike the file storage web hosting solution, the warez hosting solution is utilized for transmitting licensed work without being given the green light by the copyright keeper. To put it briefly - it involves the illicit propagation of files and materials. There are many approaches for this to be attained, but the 2 main approaches are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first one entails either a particular site, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download proprietary docs free of cost. The second way involves a peer-to-peer connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, via which people swap files between each other. There are just a few web hosting corporations that permit such type of hosting on their servers, chiefly due to all the legal complications that it involves. Usually such web pages are hosted on personal dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Hosting - this service is applicable with both shared website hosting and dedicated web servers, based on the user's desire. If you wish to launch your own personal SMTP email server, then you will need either a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that offers the level of access required to perform such an assignment. For common mail web hosting ends, however, you can open a plain shared website hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a solution that's widely popular, because the web hosting and the mail hosting services are being served by 2 different servers, usually owned by separate hosting providers.

Shared Hosting - the most widespread and universally utilized hosting service today. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose kind is dependent on the Operating System the web server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files necessitate concrete server OSs, or else they won't be displayed accurately on the World Wide Web. This kind of web hosting may contain server storage space and web traffic limitations, root access and central processing unit usage limits.

Based on the purpose and on the functions, the customer should pick the sort of hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the web hosting firm that's going to provide it. There are different types of web hosting servers, depending on the specifications and the website hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server provides a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and medium sized sites, which do not need considerable quotas of disk storage and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they perform on the very same principle as the shared web hosting servers. In spite of that, there are much less clients hosted on the same web server. For that reason, each of them will enjoy a larger share of the web server's resources like RAM, data storage space, traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting immense websites that do not require full root-level access.

VPS hosting are ideal for medium web pages, which do demand root access to the web hosting server's config files. Usually, there are a bunch of private virtual server hosting accounts hosted on the same physical server. Even so, each of them is autonomous from the rest and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a colossal amount of resources. It also includes server root access, which makes it an ideal platform for any kind of web page that demands a website hosting solution.

The sole question that's left is:

Which hosting supplier should I choose?

As mentioned above, there are very few companies providing warez web hosting services because of legal troubles. Such hosting providers are being shut down almost every month. Therefore, if you wish to offer such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared website hosting service is the most widely spread kind of hosting service. That is why, each website hosting firm provides it. Not all of them, though, provide solutions such as VPSs, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small sized hosting firms do not have the resources required for offering those solutions. You can quickly identify such web hosts by the types of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the customers. For example, some web hosting companies permit you to kick off with a low-end hosting package and then move to a more powerful one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is very convenient, since you do not need to transfer web sites between hosting servers and there is no danger of experiencing network downtime because of all the complications that may arise.
