An explanation of site hosting

As its name indicates, web hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are various forms and kinds of web hosting, depending on the mission and on the usage. However, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Internet. A web host is actually a web hosting service that is connected to the Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which permits users to get access to it through the Web. The hosting server's configuration and its limitations are determined by the type of web hosting solution it's going to be used for.

What are the various types of web hosting?

Depending on the usage, the hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this form of web hosting allows the users to accommodate their files on a particular web hosting server. With the regular file hosting service, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution normally appertains to backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other web servers. This service may also involve certain restrictions in relation to the storage space and the root privileges. There may also be web traffic limits, but that depends on the particular hosting provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is very similar to the previous hosting service type. Even so, in contrast with the file web hosting service, the warez hosting service is used for transmitting licensed work without the approval of the license owner. To cut a long story short - it refers to the unlawful circulation of files and materials. There are numerous approaches for this to be brought about, but the two main ways are - through simple HTTP downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first method involves either a specific web site, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thus download copyrighted content free of charge. The second way involves a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, via which people transmit files between each other. There are a few web space hosting providers that permit that form of hosting on their hosting servers, chiefly due to all the legal troubles that it involves. Usually such web pages are hosted on private dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this solution is relevant with both shared web hosting and dedicated web servers, based on the customer's intention. If you would like to run your own private SMTP e-mail server, then you will require either a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated web server that offers the level of access required to accomplish such a task. For common email web hosting purposes, however, you can utilize a simple shared webspace hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a solution that's very used, because the web site hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, often belonging to different firms.

Website Hosting - the most widely spread and immensely utilized hosting service nowadays. It's used for hosting website files, whose kind is dependent on the Operating System the web server is running - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files require different web server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be exhibited accurately on the World Wide Web. This type of web hosting may involve data space and traffic limitations, root access and central processing unit usage restrictions.

Depending on the aims and on the functions, the client should select the type of hosting server that he demands for his project, and, of course, the webspace hosting corporation that's going to supply it. There are various sorts of servers, based on the specs and the web site hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web server offers a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small scale and medium size sites, which do not need immense quantities of web storage and web traffic.

Semi-Dedicated - they work on the very same principle as the shared hosting servers. In spite of that, there are much less customers accommodated on the same web server. Hence, each of them will enjoy a larger share of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk storage, bandwidth and CPU. Perfect for hosting bulky sites that do not need server root access.

Virtual Private Server - the VPS servers are excellent for medium size web portals, which do need root-level access to the hosting server's config files. Generally, there are several virtual server hosting accounts placed on the same machine. However, each of them is independent from the other ones and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Servers - a fully dedicated physical server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a vast quantity of system resources. It also provides root privileges, which makes it a perfect platform for any type of online portal that demands a web hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which hosting corporation should I pick?

As stated above, there are just a few web hosts offering warez web hosting solutions due to judicial problems. Such hosting companies are being shut down practically every month. That is why, if you wish to launch such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared web space hosting service is the most widely spread kind of web hosting service. Therefore, each and every hosting vendor provides it. Not all of them, however, provide services such as private virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated web servers and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the smaller web hosting corporations do not have the means demanded for maintaining those solutions. That is the reason why it's always best to opt for a bigger hosting company that can supply its clients with all the solutions that they need. You can quickly identify such hosts by the sorts of solutions that they are offering and by the way that they introduce them to the clients. For instance, certain web hosts permit you to begin with a low-end webspace hosting plan and subsequently move to a more advanced one, if you deem it mandatory to do so. This is extremely suitable, because you do not need to transfer web sites between web hosting servers and there is no danger of facing service disturbances because of all the complications that may crop up. Providers like ZEZZOIC.COM offer all kinds of services and have the needed web hosting server resources and staff to ensure that their clients will not suffer any troubles when changing services, which is what a top hosting company is actually all about.
