What Precisely is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is a kind of Internet service that enables individuals and corporations to render their web sites discoverable online. Web hosting providers are firms that offer disk drive storage space on a web hosting server held in a data center and ensure constant website availability.

Where do you begin?

The Internet is an integral staple in every individual's everyday agenda. It offers you the option to gain extra profit, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to place advertisements on your website or to advertise goods that you offer, you always need a hosting solution, which will ensure that your web site is secure and continually reachable. But how do you find one that is moderately priced and yet trustworthy enough?

The solution hosting firms have introduced is named shared hosting. With the shared hosting solution, multiple users are accommodated on one and the same web hosting server. There are rigorous limitations on the system resources that each shared hosting account can actually avail of, thus ensuring that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers decent performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is used by just one single person. The shared hosting solution enables shared hosting companies to offer their customers modest prices. It usually includes intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Holt Technology Corporation provide, and permits everybody to administer their sites without worrying about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are taken care of solely by the hosting service provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual private web server hosting account holders, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The private virtual hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting solution, and is a very appropriate solution for anyone who would like to host, for example, an audio or video streaming site or a community web portal. The circumstance that you have to deal with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a big plus if you indeed need to implement certain server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most cases much more expensive than shared or private virtual web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-demanding web site, or simply has very special server setup and safety requirements, the right option is a dedicated hosting server that you or your techs can manage directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You are bestowed with full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web server's resources without anyone else availing of these resources and meddling with your web sites.
