As its name signifies, shared hosting is a service, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the aims and on the objectives. Yet, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Web. A host is actually a web hosting service that is linked to the Internet and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which permits users to gain access to it through the Internet. The web server's configuration and its limitations depend on the type of web hosting service it will be utilized for.

What are the different types of web hosting?

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

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of hosting allows the users to lodge their files on a certain hosting server. With the normal file storage hosting service, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the individual that's availing of the service. This web hosting service normally applies to backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other web servers. This service may also have certain limits in relation to the disk storage space and the root privileges. There may also be traffic restrictions, but that is dependent on the particular web hosting service provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is resembling the previous hosting service form. Still, unlike the file hosting solution, the warez web hosting solution is used for propagating patented content without the authorization of the copyright proprietor. To cut a long story short - it is associated with the criminal dissemination of files and materials. There are numerous ways for this to be fulfilled, but the 2 chief ways are - through plain HTTP downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first method involves either a specific site, or, most typically, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download copyrighted content free of cost. The second method entails a P2P connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users swap files between each other. There are a few web hosting distributors that allow that form of hosting on their hosting servers, mainly owing to all the judicial entanglements that it presupposes. Generally such web sites are hosted on personal dedicated servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Web Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared web hosting and dedicated hosting servers, based on the user's desire. If you want to create your very own private SMTP server, then you will need either a virtual server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the access level required to perform such an operation. For ordinary electronic mail web hosting purposes, however, you can use a plain shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a solution that's very famous, since the web hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate servers, often belonging to separate companies.

Shared Hosting - the most popular and extensively utilized hosting service at present. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose kind depends on the OS the server is running - Linux or Windows. Different types of files necessitate specific server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be displayed accurately on the Web. This form of web hosting may have data space and traffic restrictions, server root access and central processing unit usage limits.

Based on the goals and on the functions, the client should choose the type of web hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the hosting company that's going to supply it. There are various types of web hosting servers, based on the configuration and the web hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server supplies a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small size and middle scale online portals, which do not demand immense quantities of web space and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Hosting - they are based on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. However, there are much less customers hosted on the same web server. For that reason, each of them will obtain a larger quota of the server's resources like RAM, data storage space, traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting enormous web portals that do not need complete root-level access.

VPS hosting are perfect for medium sites, which do require root access to the hosting server's configuration files. Generally, there are a handful of virtual private web hosting server accounts located on the same physical machine. Yet, each of them is independent from the other ones and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Hosting - a completely dedicated web hosting server configured and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a gigantic amount of resources. It also gives server root access, which renders it the optimal solution for any sort of online portal that needs a hosting service.

The sole question that's left is:

Which web hosting corporation should I opt for?

As already stated, there aren't many web hosting companies providing warez hosting services due to judicial troubles. Such hosts are being closed down almost every month. Therefore, if you would like to offer such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared website hosting solution is the most widely spread type of hosting service. That is why, each and every website hosting vendor offers it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as VPS servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the smaller website hosting providers do not have the means needed for offering those solutions. You can effortlessly recognize such companies by the kinds of solutions that they are offering and by the way that they introduce them to the customers. For example, some hosting providers permit you to commence with a small scale website hosting plan and then shift to a more advanced one, if you find it obligatory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not have to relocate web pages between servers and there is no possibility of experiencing service interruptions due to all the predicaments that may crop up.

We, at Wise Host Network offer all sorts of solutions and possess the necessary server resources and staff to ensure that their customers will not chance upon any complications when swapping services, which is what a top hosting distributor is actually all about.
