Hosting is a type of online service that enables persons and organizations to render their web portals discoverable on the Internet. Web hosting service providers are firms that offer hard drive space on a server kept in a data center and guarantee uninterrupted network uptime.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web is a crucial component of every individual's daily life. It offers you the opportunity to make some cash on the side, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to embed adverts on your site or to popularize a service that you offer, you invariably require a hosting service, which will make sure that your web site is protected and constantly reachable. But how do you discover one that is affordable and yet dependable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution hosting service providers have come up with is called shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, many shared hosting accounts are hosted on one and the same hosting server. There are harsh restrictions on the resources that each hosting account can in fact use, thus guaranteeing that they do not intervene with each other. The shared hosting solution offers satisfactory performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is used by just one client. The shared hosting solution allows hosting companies to offer their clients reasonable prices. It usually includes easy-to-use hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Hepsia provide, and permits everybody to manage their websites without bothering about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are taken care of solely by the hosting corporation.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other users, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The private virtual server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web hosting solution, and is an excellent solution for anyone who desires to set up, for instance, an audio or video streaming site or a social network. The fact that you need to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a big upside if you indeed have to make some server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most cases much more high-priced than shared or virtual server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting server then? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a high resource-consuming web page, or just has very explicit web server architecture and security requirements, the most logical option is a dedicated web server that you or your server administrators can administer directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You are granted complete root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your online portals.
