As its name signifies, shared hosting is a solution, which entails hosting web content. There are various varieties and types of hosting, depending on the aims and on the usage. In spite of that, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Web. A web host is actually a server that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its own Internet Protocol address, which enables users to access it through the Internet. The hosting server's configuration and its system resources are subject to the form of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.

What are the different forms of web hosting?

Based on the mission, the hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of web hosting permits the users to stash their files on a specific server. With the typical file storage web hosting service, the files that are stashed may only be accessed by the customer that's utilizing the service. This web hosting solution mainly entails backups of personal computers , docs, personal files and even other hosting servers. This solution may also involve given limitations when it comes to the data storage and the root privileges. There may also be bandwidth limitations, but that is dependent on the given web hosting provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is very similar to the previous hosting service type. Yet, in contrast with the file hosting service, the warez web hosting solution is utilized for propagating licensed content without the blessing of the copyright keeper. In short - it appertains to the illicit dissemination of files and documents. There are multiple approaches for this to be performed, but the two chief approaches are - through plain HTTP downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first way entails either a certain website, or, most commonly, just a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download proprietary documents for free. The second way involves a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, via which people exchange files between each other. There are not many website hosting firms that permit that form of hosting on their hosting servers, mostly due to all the judicial predicaments that it presupposes. Generally such web portals are hosted on personal dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this solution is utilized with both shared hosting and dedicated hosting servers, based on the user's wish. If you want to establish your own private SMTP email server, then you will require either a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the access level required to accomplish such a task. For conventional email hosting ends, though, you can open a plain shared hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's very famous, since the web hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two separate web servers, usually belonging to separate hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most famous and widely used hosting service as of today. It's used for hosting web site files, whose kind depends on the Operating System the hosting server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files demand concrete server OSs, or else they won't be exhibited properly on the World Wide Web. This type of hosting may impose server storage and traffic quota limits, server root access and CPU usage limitations.

Based on the purpose and on the usage, the user should choose the sort of hosting server that he requires for his work, and, of course, the web hosting corporation that's going to furnish it. There are various kinds of web hosting servers, depending on the specifications and the website hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server includes a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small and middle scale web pages, which do not require large amounts of disk storage and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Hosting - they function on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Yet, there are much less users sharing the same web server. That is why, each of them will have a larger share of the web server's resources like RAM, server storage, web traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting big online portals that do not need full root privileges.

VPS hosting are perfect for medium size web pages, which do require root access to the web hosting server's config files. Typically, there are a bunch of virtual hosting server accounts accommodated on the same physical server. However, each of them is insulated from the rest and has its own OS.

Dedicated Hosting - a fully dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures an enormous quantity of system resources. It also gives server root access, which makes it a perfect platform for any type of site that necessitates a website hosting service.

The sole question that remains is:

Which hosting corporation should I pick?

As mentioned, there are just a few companies offering warez hosting services due to legal complications. Such hosting companies are being closed down practically every month. That is why, if you desire to provide such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared web hosting service is the most famous type of hosting service. Hence, every web hosting vendor offers it. Not all of them, however, offer solutions such as private virtual servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small scale web hosting providers do not have the resources required for maintaining those solutions. You can quickly recognize such hosting companies by the kinds of services that they are making available and by the way that they introduce them to the clients. For instance, some web hosts allow you to kick off with a small sized web hosting plan and subsequently upgrade to a bigger one, if you find it mandatory to do so. This is very suitable, since you do not need to migrate websites between web hosting servers and there is no danger of suffering service outages because of all the predicaments that may crop up.

We, at TALOSWEB offer all kinds of solutions and have the adequate web server resources and staff to assure that their clients will not suffer any complications when changing services, which is what a top hosting corporation is actually all about.
