As its name implies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various forms and types of web hosting, depending on the purpose and on the objectives. However, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the World Wide Web. A host is actually a server that is connected to the Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which permits users to get access to it via the World Wide Web. The hosting server's configuration and its limitations are dependent on the kind of web hosting service it will be utilized for.

What are the different forms of hosting?

Based on the usage, the business hosting service may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of web hosting permits the customers to stash their files on a certain web hosting server. With the common file web hosting solution, the files that are stashed may only be accessed by the client that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution typically applies to backups of personal computers , docs, private files and even other web hosting servers. This solution may also have certain restrictions when it comes to the server space and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth quota limitations, but that is dependent on the particular service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is very similar to the previous hosting service type. However, in contrast with the file web hosting solution, the warez hosting service is used for spreading licensed work without the blessing of the license possessor. In short - it is connected with the criminal propagation of files and documents. There are lots of methods for this to be done, but the 2 essential approaches are - through plain HTTP downloading and through P2P connections. The first way involves either a particular web page, or, most typically, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download copyrighted content for free. The second method entails a P2P connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which people transmit files between each other. There are a few website hosting firms that permit that form of hosting on their servers, mostly due to all the judicial troubles that it presupposes. Generally such web pages are hosted on private dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Web Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared web hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the client's intention. If you would like to launch your own private SMTP mail server, then you will need either a VPS server or a dedicated web server that provides the access level needed to carry out such a procedure. For ordinary mail web hosting purposes, however, you can open a normal shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a solution that's widely famous, because the website hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two separate web servers, usually belonging to separate hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most famous and commonly used hosting service these days. It's used for hosting web site files, whose type is determined by the OS the web hosting server is utilizing - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand specific server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be displayed appropriately on the Web. This kind of hosting may involve server space and web traffic quota limitations, server root access and CPU usage restrictions.

Based on the mission and on the usage, the user should pick the sort of web hosting server that he requires for his work, and, of course, the web hosting distributor that's going to furnish it. There are various kinds of web hosting servers, depending on the specs and the website hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared web server provides a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, is manifested in the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small sized and medium scale sites, which do not need large quotas of web storage and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they work on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. However, there are much less customers accommodated on the same web server. Because of that, each of them will receive a larger quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk space, traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting big online portals that do not need complete root access.

Virtual private servers are excellent for middle scale sites, which do need root-level access to the web hosting server's configuration files. Generally, there are a handful of virtual private web server hosting accounts accommodated on the same physical machine. Nonetheless, each of them is insulated from the rest and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated hosting server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures an enormous quantity of resources. It also offers full root access, which renders it a perfect environment for any sort of web page that requires a website hosting service.

The sole question that remains is:

Which hosting provider should I select?

As already stated, there aren't many web hosting providers providing warez web hosting services because of judicial predicaments. Such hosting companies are being closed down virtually every month. Therefore, if you would like to provide such a service, you should do it on your very own personal computer. The shared web hosting service is the most widespread kind of hosting service. For that reason, every web hosting corporation offers it. Not all of them, however, provide services such as VPS servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the smaller website hosting distributors do not have the means required for offering those services. You can effortlessly recognize such hosting companies by the sorts of services that they are offering and by the manner in which they introduce them to the clientele. For instance, some web hosts allow you to kick off with a small sized website hosting package and subsequently move to a more advanced one, if you consider it compulsory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not have to transfer web portals between hosting servers and there is no possibility of suffering service outages due to all the predicaments that may arise.

We, at REDESK BOLIVIA HOSTING provide all sorts of services and have the necessary web server resources and staff to assure that their clients will not suffer any troubles when changing services, which is what a top hosting supplier is actually all about.
