Shared hosting is a sort of Internet service that permits persons and organizations to render their web sites accessible on the Internet. Web hosting providers are companies that offer content storage space on a hosting server held in a data center and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The World Wide Web has become an essential fragment of everybody's daily agenda. It offers you the opportunity to make a little side cash, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to put commercials on your web page or to publicize goods that you offer, you always require a hosting service, which will make certain that your web portal is secure and continually accessible. But how do you find one that is cheap and yet dependable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution web hosting vendors have introduced is called shared hosting. With the shared hosting solution, multiple shared hosting accounts are hosted on one and the same web server. There are severe restrictions on the system resources that each hosting account can actually use, thus guaranteeing that they do not intervene with each other. The shared hosting solution offers good performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is used by just one single user. The shared hosting solution enables shared hosting firms to offer their clients cheap prices. It ordinarily comes with intuitive Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at HostExcel provide, and allows everybody to manage their web portals without bothering about server configuration and maintenance procedures, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting distributor.

Virtual private servers hosting

With the virtual private servers hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other VPS hosting account owners, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The virtual hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server hosting solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who desires to create, for example, an audio or video streaming website or a social networking web site. The fact that you need to cope with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a great upside if you really have to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared hosting web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most cases much more expensive than shared web hosting or VPS web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting web server then? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a heavy-traffic web page, or simply has very precise web server configuration and security requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated hosting server that you or your technicians can manage directly. For someone who is inclined to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You have full root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and meddling with your web sites.
