Description of Web Hosting

You have a concept that you would like to transform into a web site? Your very first move should be to preserve your enthusiasm and discover a spot for your web site on the World Wide Web so that it will be constantly accessible to the whole world.

Where should you host your website?

Since the number of sites online has increased rapidly over the last several years, the demand for website hosting services has also lead to the emergence of innumerable web hosting corporations. These are companies that offer you space for your own site on their web servers.

Sorts of web hosting services

The ambit of web hosting services varies considerably, so do the demands of the web site owners. The most basic type of web hosting is the small-size file hosting solution, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a web-based web hosting Control Panel. Lots of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer this service free of charge. Personal web site possessors and firms can also get web hosting services from different web hosts. Personal website hosting services are typically either free, advertisement-financed, or low-priced. Business website hosting services usually cost more, but thanks to the gigantic competition on the marketplace, an increasing number of web hosting providers, like us at AN1 Technology Group, furnish business web hosting services at trimmed prices and with flexible invoicing intervals.

Types of web sites and their prerequisites

The free website hosting solution is normally sufficient for personal websites like portfolios or online journals. A more resource-absorbing web site, such as a community site or a corporate web site, calls for a more powerful web hosting solution that provides database support and application development platforms (including PHP). If you want to set up an e-commerce website, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) must be supported by the web hosting plans provider of your choice. Today, Secure Sockets Layer certificates are supplied by the majority of web hosts.

The hosting Control Panel

The hosting vendor normally also offers a hosting Control Panel tool for handling your web content, email mailboxes, e-mail aliases, domain names, DNS records, etc.

Service dependability

When choosing a hosting packages provider, service uptime is a very vital factor. The accessibility of a website is calculated on a yearly basis by taking into account the time when the web site is publicly accessible and visible online. Network and service availability guarantees, therefore, should be cautiously examined when signing up for a website hosting plan. The best thing to do is re-examine the SLAs and the TOS of the web hosting solutions provider of your choosing in advance. Finding online reviews from current customers is also a rather wise move before you reach a decision to sign up.

The shared web hosting platform

The most famous and affordably priced type of web hosting service is the shared web hosting solution. It includes 24/7/365 support, which is a big plus for users who would not like to cope with server maintenance tasks, but could also hamper clients who want to exert more control over the server. For such customers, a virtual private servers or a dedicated web hosting would be more suitable. Most standard apps and scripts work alright on a shared web hosting server. Furthermore, the shared web hosting solution is more affordably priced than other kinds of web hosting solutions, like the dedicated web hosting, since the web hosting provider splits the shared server among a lot of customers. The shared web hosting platform typically involves usage limits that guarantee that the separate users do not intervene with each other and that the shared hosting web server stays stable.

Administering your shared website hosting account

Shared web hosting plans normally include a web-based web hosting Control Panel interface, such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, and so on. Most of the large-sized hosting providers, again like us at AN1 Technology Group, use their very own custom-made hosting Control Panel interface.

Web server maintenance

With the shared hosting platform, the hosting supplier is responsible for administering the web and electronic mail servers, for installing web server software, software updates and patches, and for providing technical support to its clients. Most servers are based on the Linux OS. The web hosting provider's system administrators are in charge of keeping the OS up to date, unless you have a dedicated hosting server and complete root-level access.
