As its name suggests, shared hosting is a service, which entails hosting web content. There are different varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the mission and on the objectives. Yet, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the Web. A web host is actually a web server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its own IP address, which permits people to get access to it via the Web. The server's configuration and its resources are subject to the sort of web hosting solution it will be used for.

What are the various forms of hosting?

Based on the objective, the professional hosting service may be:

File Web Hosting - this form of hosting allows the customers to stash their files on a specific server. With the conventional file storage web hosting solution, the files that are deposited may only be accessed by the client that's utilizing the service. This hosting service usually appertains to backups of computers , docs, private files and even other web servers. This solution may also contain certain limits when it comes to the disk storage and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth limitations, but that depends on the given service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting solution is quite similar to the previous hosting service type. However, in contrast with the file hosting service, the warez web hosting solution is used for propagating copyrighted work without being given the OK to do so by the licence holder. In brief - it is associated with the forbidden circulation of files and docs. There are lots of approaches for this to be attained, but the 2 essential methods are - through plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first approach involves either a given web portal, or, most typically, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download copyrighted content free of charge. The second method involves a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which people exchange files between each other. There aren't many web hosting vendors that permit that form of hosting on their hosting servers, chiefly due to all the judicial complications that it involves. Usually such sites are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by 3rd party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared website hosting and dedicated servers, depending on the client's desire. If you desire to run your own personal SMTP mail server, then you will require either a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the level of access required to execute such a procedure. For standard electronic mail hosting purposes, however, you can set up a regular shared hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's very popular, because the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, usually belonging to separate hosting providers.

Shared Hosting - the most widespread and commonly utilized hosting service these days. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose sort depends on the OS the web server is running - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files request different server OSs, otherwise they won't be exhibited appropriately on the World Wide Web. This type of hosting may contain web space and bandwidth limitations, root-level access and CPU usage limits.

Depending on the purpose and on the objectives, the customer should pick the sort of hosting server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the web hosting supplier that's going to provide it. There are various types of servers, based on the specs and the web hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server includes a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and medium scale web portals, which do not need large quantities of web storage space and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Hosting - they are based on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Still, there are much less clients sharing the same web hosting server. Hence, each of them will get a greater quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, web storage space, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting popular sites that do not require complete root access.

VPS hosting are excellent for middle size websites, which do demand root access to the server's config files. Usually, there are a few virtual private hosting server accounts situated on the same physical machine. Still, each of them is insulated from the others and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Hosting - a fully dedicated hosting server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures an immense quantity of resources. It also includes complete root access, which renders it the optimal platform for any type of website that requires a website hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which hosting corporation should I opt for?

As mentioned, there are very few companies offering warez web hosting services because of judicial problems. Such hosts are being closed down almost every month. Therefore, if you desire to start such a service, you should do it on your very own personal computer. The shared web hosting service is the most widely spread kind of hosting service. That is why, each web hosting distributor offers it. Not all of them, however, offer solutions such as VPS web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated web servers. Most of the smaller web hosting suppliers do not have the resources demanded for maintaining those solutions. You can quickly ID such hosting companies by the types of services that they are providing and by the way that they present them to the customers. For example, certain web hosting companies allow you to begin with a small scale web hosting account and then upgrade to a bigger one, if you consider it compulsory to do so. This is extremely convenient, since you do not need to relocate sites between web servers and there is no chance of suffering network outages because of all the complications that may take place.
