Web hosting is a kind of Internet service that permits individuals and companies to render their websites reachable on the World Wide Web. Hosting service providers are firms that offer hard disk storage space on a web hosting server held in a data center facility and guarantee constant Internet access.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become a key part of everybody's everyday life. It offers you the opportunity to gain a bit of cash on the side, but can also be a major source of income. In order to place adverts on your web site or to popularize a commodity that you offer, you always need a hosting service, which will guarantee that your web page is safe and continually available. But how do you find one that is affordable and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared web hosting solution

The solution hosting distributors have brought forth is named shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, multiple shared hosting accounts are hosted on one and the same hosting server. There are rigorous limits on the system resources that each hosting account can in fact avail of, thus guaranteeing that they do not meddle with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers acceptable performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is used by just one client. The shared hosting solution enables web hosting distributors to offer their customers affordable prices. It normally comes with easy-to-use Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at PWT Online Technologies Inc. provide, and enables everyone to administer their web sites without worrying about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting vendor.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other Virtual Private Server customers, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS web hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated hosting solution, and is a very suitable solution for anyone who wishes to run, for example, a live streaming website or a community site. The circumstance that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a great asset if you really need to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most circumstances much more expensive than shared web hosting or virtual private web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated server then? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a busy site, or simply has very specific web server architecture and safety requirements, the smartest choice is a dedicated web server that you or your server administrators can administer directly. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and stability, the higher price is not a problem. You are given full root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and meddling with your websites.
