Web Hosting

Web hosting is the service of providing storage space for a website or application on a server on the internet. Once your website is made available on the internet, it can be accessed by other computers connected to the internet. Therefore, once the hosting company hosts your website, users can access it by typing in your web address (domain name) in their web browser. When they do this, their computer connects to the server your website is hosted on. This helps your website visitor to view your website on their web browser by sending the files you have stored on the server.

Types of hosting

There are several ways to host your website:

1.Shared Hosting:
In shared hosting, one’s website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds or thousands. Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. As cost is extremely low, most websites with moderate traffic levels running standard software are hosted on this type of server. Shared hosting is also widely accepted as the entry level hosting option.

2.Reseller Hosting:
It is a type of hosting in which you can re-sell the same hosting services provided by the parent hosting company. With Reseller Hosting, you can also upsell every other web service offered by the parent web host.

3.Dedicated Hosting:
Dedicated hosting gives you complete/administrative control of your server with full root access. You can choose to install any software you wish to. A dedicated server offers the maximum control over the web server your website is stored on – You exclusively rent an entire server. Your website is the only website stored on the server.

4.VPS hosting:
This is a special type of shared hosting in which you do share a server with other websites, but you are assigned resources that are not shared with the other properties. In simple words, VPS hosting is a mixture of Shared hosting and Dedicated hosting.

5.Cloud hosting:
In cloud hosting a  team of servers (called a cloud) work together to host a group of websites. In this multiple computers works together to host a website. It is called cloud hosting.
