How Web Hosting Services Works

Web hosting is a sort of Internet service that permits persons and companies to render their web portals accessible online. Web hosting providers are companies that offer space on a server housed in a datacenter facility and ensure uninterrupted service uptime.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become a key element in our daily life. It offers you the possibility to gain additional profit, but can also be a chief source of income. In order to display advertisements on your site or to advertise a product that you sell, you always require a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your site is secure and always available. But how do you find one that is cheap and yet stable enough?

The solution hosting companies have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, multiple shared hosting accounts are hosted on the same web hosting server. There are harsh limits on the resources that each shared hosting account can actually make use of, thus ensuring that they do not interfere with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers satisfactory performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is used by just one single customer. The shared hosting solution allows web hosting firms to offer their customers affordable prices. It usually comes with easy-to-use hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Woncloud Hosting provide, and allows everybody to administer their web portals without worrying about server installation and maintenance procedures, which are handled solely by the hosting corporation.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual web server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server web hosting solution, and is a very appropriate solution for anyone who wants to run, for example, an audio or video streaming website or a social network. The fact that you have to deal with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge plus if you indeed need to implement some server configuration modifications - something that would be inconceivable on a shared web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most circumstances much more high-priced than shared hosting or Virtual Private Server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The answer is very simple. If your company has a heavy-content web site, or simply has very exact web server architecture and security requirements, the most relevant option is a dedicated hosting server that you or your technicians can administer directly. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You are given complete root-level access and can use 100% of the physical machine's resources without anyone else using these resources and interfering with your web sites.
