As its name suggests, website hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of hosting, depending on the goals and on the objectives. Nevertheless, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the World Wide Web. A host is in fact a server that is linked to the Internet and has its very own IP address, which allows people to access it through the Web. The server's architecture and its system resources are dependent on the type of web hosting service it will be used for.

What are the different forms of hosting?

Depending on the function, the professional hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of hosting enables the users to deposit their files on a particular hosting server. With the traditional file hosting solution, the files that are kept may only be accessed by the customer that's using the service. This hosting solution generally entails backups of personal computers , docs, personal files and even other web hosting servers. This solution may also involve given restrictions with regard to the web space and the root access. There may also be web traffic limitations, but that depends on the given hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous hosting service form. Nevertheless, unlike the file web hosting service, the warez web hosting solution is used for spreading patented content without being given the green light by the copyright bearer. In short - it is connected with the illicit propagation of files and materials. There are many ways for this to be done, but the two chief approaches are - via plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first method entails either a given web page, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thus download licensed materials free of cost. The second method involves a peer-to-peer connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, via which people share files between each other. There are just a few web hosting distributors that permit that type of hosting on their web servers, mostly owing to all the judicial entanglements that it involves. Commonly such web portals are hosted on private dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Hosting - this solution is relevant with both shared hosting and dedicated servers, based on the user's desire. If you desire to run your own private SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated web server that offers the level of access needed to complete such an operation. For normal electronic mail hosting ends, however, you can set up a conventional shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a solution that's widely popular, because the website hosting and the email hosting services are being served by 2 different web servers, often belonging to different web hosting providers.

Website Hosting - the most widely spread and widely used hosting service at the moment. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the server is using - Linux or Windows. Different types of files need different web hosting server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be shown correctly on the Internet. This sort of web hosting may involve web storage and web traffic restrictions, root-level access and CPU usage restrictions.

Depending on the goals and on the usage, the client should pick the sort of hosting server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the website hosting firm that's going to furnish it. There are various sorts of web hosting servers, depending on the specifications and the web hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server includes a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and medium sized online portals, which do not require large quotas of storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting - they function on the same principle as the shared web servers. Even so, there are much fewer customers sharing the same hosting server. Because of that, each of them will receive a bigger quota of the server's resources like RAM, web storage, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting huge web portals that do not need full server root privileges.

VPS web hosting are perfect for middle size web pages, which do need root access to the web server's configuration files. Traditionally, there are a bunch of VPS server hosting accounts situated on the same physical server. Even so, each of them is autonomous from the other ones and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Web Hosting - a completely dedicated server set up and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a big amount of system resources. It also offers full root privileges, which renders it an excellent solution for any kind of web page that necessitates a website hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which web hosting distributor should I settle on?

As already mentioned, there are not many hosts providing warez web hosting solutions due to judicial problems. Such companies are being closed down practically every month. Therefore, if you want to offer such a service, you should do it on your own computer. The shared hosting service is the most widespread kind of hosting service. Hence, each and every web hosting distributor provides it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as private virtual web servers, Semi-dedicated Web Hosting and dedicated servers. Most of the smaller web hosting providers do not have the resources required for maintaining those solutions. You can easily ID such companies by the types of services that they are offering and by the way that they present them to the customers. For instance, some hosting providers permit you to kick off with a small sized website hosting package and subsequently move to a bigger one, if you deem it mandatory to do so. This is extremely suitable, because you do not need to move web portals between web servers and there is no chance of suffering service disturbances because of all the problems that may take place.
