As its name signifies, shared hosting is a service, which involves hosting online content. There are different forms and types of hosting, based on the mission and on the functions. Still, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Internet. A host is actually a web server that is connected to the Web and has its very own Internet Protocol address, which permits users to gain access to it via the Internet. The server's configuration and its resources are determined by the form of web hosting solution it's going to be utilized for.

What are the different types of hosting?

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

File Hosting - this form of web hosting enables the customers to accommodate their files on a certain hosting server. With the typical file storage hosting service, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the person that's utilizing the service. This web hosting service usually appertains to backups of PCs , documents, personal files and even other hosting servers. This solution may also include certain limits in relation to the disk storage space and the root access. There may also be bandwidth quota limits, but that depends on the given web hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is resembling the previous web hosting service form. Nonetheless, in contrast with the file hosting solution, the warez web hosting service is used for spreading patented content without being given the go-ahead by the license proprietor. To put it briefly - it appertains to the prohibited distribution of files and materials. There are numerous methods for this to be completed, but the two essential methods are - through plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first one entails either a given web portal, or, most often, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download proprietary materials free of charge. The second way entails a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, through which people share files between each other. There aren't many website hosting companies that permit such type of hosting on their servers, chiefly because of all the judicial complications that it involves. Typically such web sites are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party companies either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Hosting - this solution is relevant with both shared website hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the client's desire. If you wish to run your very own personal SMTP mail server, then you will require either a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server that offers the level of access needed to accomplish such a procedure. For ordinary electronic mail web hosting purposes, however, you can use a standard shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely used, since the web hosting and the mail hosting services are being served by 2 different servers, usually owned by different web hosting providers.

Shared Hosting - the most widespread and vastly utilized hosting service nowadays. It's utilized for hosting web site files, whose kind is determined by the OS the hosting server is running - Linux or Windows. Different types of files request different web server OSs, otherwise they won't be displayed accurately on the Internet. This type of hosting may impose storage space and traffic limitations, server root access and CPU usage limits.

Depending on the goals and on the functions, the user should choose the sort of web server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web hosting distributor that's going to supply it. There are several kinds of web servers, based on the specs and the website hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server provides a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small and middle scale sites, which do not need vast amounts of data storage space and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they work on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. In spite of that, there are much fewer clients accommodated on the same server. For that reason, each of them will have a larger quota of the hosting server's resources like RAM, web storage space, traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting big web portals that do not require root privileges.

VPS hosting are perfect for middle scale web sites, which do need root access to the web hosting server's config files. Generally, there are several VPS hosting accounts placed on the same physical machine. However, each of them is isolated from the others and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated machine configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a colossal amount of system resources. It also offers root-level access, which makes it the optimal platform for any type of site that demands a web hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which website hosting supplier should I settle on?

As mentioned above, there are just a few hosts providing warez web hosting solutions due to legal predicaments. Such providers are being closed down practically every month. That is why, if you would like to offer such a service, you should do it on your own computer. The shared website hosting solution is the most widespread type of web hosting service. So, each website hosting firm offers it. Not all of them, however, offer solutions such as VPS web servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated servers. Most of the smaller website hosting distributors do not have the resources needed for maintaining those solutions. You can effortlessly ID such web hosts by the sorts of solutions that they are providing and by the manner in which they present them to the clients. For instance, certain web hosting companies allow you to kick off with a smaller hosting plan and afterwards move to a more advanced one, if you deem it obligatory to do so. This is extremely suitable, because you do not have to migrate web portals between servers and there is no chance of experiencing service interruptions due to all the complications that may arise.

We, at Tamaraw Hosting offer all sorts of solutions and possess the needed web server resources and personnel to guarantee that their customers will not suffer any problems when swapping services, which is what a top hosting supplier is actually all about.
