Shared hosting is a sort of Internet service that enables persons and organizations to render their web pages discoverable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting service providers are firms that offer hard drive storage space on a hosting server located in a data center facility and ensure continuous service uptime.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web is an indispensable factor in everybody's everyday agenda. It offers you the chance to earn extra cash, but can also be a chief source of income. In order to embed advertisements on your site or to popularize a service that you sell, you invariably require a hosting service, which will make sure that your web portal is safe and constantly accessible. But how do you discover one that is reasonably priced and yet reliable enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution web hosts have brought forth is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, plenty of user accounts are accommodated on the very same web hosting server. There are rigorous limits on the resources that each shared hosting account can actually resort to, thus guaranteeing that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers good performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is utilized by only one person. The shared hosting solution allows shared hosting distributors to offer their clients attractive prices. It normally comes with user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Internet Business Services provide, and enables everybody to administer their web sites without worrying about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are entirely handled by the hosting supplier.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual private web hosting server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting solution, and is a perfect solution for anyone who would like to host, for instance, an audio or video streaming web site or a community site. The fact that you need to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be an enormous benefit if you indeed need to implement certain server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of cases much more expensive than shared or VPS web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web hosting server then? The reply is rather simple. If your firm has a resource-intensive online portal, or just has very exact web server architecture and safety requirements, the wisest option is a dedicated web server that you or your admins can administer directly. For someone who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You receive complete root access and can use 100 percent of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your online portals.
