Hello, guys today we are going to talk All About WebHosting. As this information in this post is very useful for all the newbies. Related to the web designing and also for those who just want to understand about Web Hosting and its types.
What is Web Hosting?
It is a type of service which allows the user to host their data, content, websites, web pages, files etc. on the internet. A web host or web hosting provider provides a service through which you can host your data on their server (i.e.: Special type of computers) and be served online so that so many peoples can access that data.
When any user wants to access your data or information he/she will simply enter your domain name and that domain will connect you to that server carrying data and shown up with the required info.
Most hosting companies require that you own your domain in order to host with them. If you do not have a domain, the hosting companies will help you purchase one.
Types Of Web Hosting?
Confused! Here I will tell briefly about all types of web hostings and will also clarify few questions like Why are this type of hosting are so expensive? Which will be best hosting for me? and much more like this…….
1. Shared Web Hosting
Shared hosting simply means that few people are sharing a single hosting. The advantage of this type of hosting is that you just have to pay a very little amount.
The biggest disadvantages of the shared hosting are that a popular site in that shared server will eat up all the resources and your site will not perform as it has to be.
Anyways this type of hosting is good for a startup.
2. Cloud Based Web Hosting
Cloud based hosting is a new type of hosting plan where a lot of individual servers work together and serve as one. The idea is that as the need grows, the hosting company can just add more commodity hardware to make an ever larger grid or cloud
The advantage of cloud-based web hosting is that if you get an unusually large amount of website traffic the web hosting plan can accommodate the surge of traffic – rather than shutting your website down.
3.Dedicated Web Server Webhosting
Here dedicated server means you rent someone’s else server or rent from any hosting company. There you have full control over that server often called as root permission.
With a dedicated server, you don’t have to worry about other websites on a shared server
taking up your resources and slowing your website down.
4.Virtual Private Server (VPS) Webhosting
Virtual private servers share one physical server but work as multiple, private server.
