As its name implies, hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are different forms and kinds of web hosting, based on the purpose and on the usage. Nonetheless, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a server that is connected to the Internet and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which allows people to have access to it through the Internet. The server's architecture and its system resources depend on the sort of hosting service it's going to be used for.

What are the various forms of hosting?

Based on the application, the business website hosting solution may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this form of hosting enables the users to save their files on a certain server. With the ordinary file storage web hosting service, the files that are kept may only be accessed by the customer that's availing of the service. This hosting solution mainly includes backups of personal computers , documents, private files and even other servers. This solution may also involve certain limitations in terms of the server storage and the root access. There may also be web traffic limits, but that is dependent on the particular hosting service provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous hosting service form. Still, in contrast with the file hosting solution, the warez hosting service is used for disseminating licensed content without the blessing of the patent possessor. In brief - it pertains to the illegal dissemination of files and documents. There are multiple approaches for this to be fulfilled, but the 2 chief approaches are - through plain HTTP downloading and via P2P connections. The first one entails either a particular site, or, most often, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download copyrighted documents for free. The second way involves a peer-to-peer connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, via which people transfer files between each other. There are just a few web hosting suppliers that permit such type of web hosting on their web hosting servers, mostly due to all the legal predicaments that it entails. Generally such websites are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

E-mail Web Hosting - this service is applicable with both shared web hosting and dedicated servers, based on the user's wish. If you would like to have your own private SMTP mail server, then you will require either a VPS web server or a dedicated web server that offers the access level needed to carry out such an assignment. For normal email hosting ends, though, you can avail of a conventional shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's very famous, because the web hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two separate servers, usually belonging to different hosting providers.

Hosting - the most widely spread and broadly used hosting service now. It's used for hosting website files, whose type is dependent on the OS the hosting server is running - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files demand different server OSs, otherwise they won't be displayed accurately on the Web. This form of hosting may impose web storage space and web traffic limitations, root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

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

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server offers a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and medium size websites, which do not demand enormous quantities of web storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Packages - they are based on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. However, there are much less users accommodated on the same web server. Hence, each of them will enjoy a larger share of the hosting server's resources like RAM, data storage space, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting popular web pages that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPS are perfect for middle scale web portals, which do need root access to the server's config files. Traditionally, there are a bunch of private virtual server hosting accounts located on the same physical server. However, each of them is independent from the others and has its own OS.

Dedicated Package - a fully dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a considerable amount of resources. It also includes full root-level access, which renders it an ideal environment for any sort of web site that needs a website hosting service.

The sole question that's left is:

Which web hosting supplier should I settle on?

As already mentioned, there are very few hosting providers offering warez web hosting services due to legal complications. Such companies are being shut down almost every month. For that reason, if you desire to establish such a service, you should do it on your own personal computer. The shared website hosting service is the most famous type of hosting service. That is why, each and every web hosting company provides it. Not all of them, however, offer solutions such as virtual servers, Semi-dedicated Packages and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small sized web hosting companies do not have the resources needed for maintaining those services. You can quickly recognize such web hosts by the sorts of services that they are offering and by the way that they introduce them to the clients. For instance, some web hosting providers permit you to start with a smaller web hosting package and then upgrade to a more powerful one, if you consider it necessary to do so. This is very convenient, because you do not need to transfer web sites between hosting servers and there is no risk of facing downtime due to all the complications that may take place.
