Hosting is a sort of online service that enables persons and corporations to make their websites viewable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting service providers are firms that offer content storage space on a hosting server placed in a datacenter and ensure continuous network connectivity.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web is a vital factor in every person's everyday life. It gives you the possibility to earn a little side cash, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to put ads on your web page or to popularize a product that you offer, you always need a hosting service, which will guarantee that your web portal is secure and constantly up and running. But how do you find one that is inexpensive and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared web hosting solution

The solution web hosting suppliers have introduced is called shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, a lot of web hosting clients are hosted on the same hosting server. There are rigorous limitations on the system resources that each shared web hosting account can actually utilize, thus making certain that they do not intervene with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by just one client. The shared hosting solution permits hosting corporations to offer their customers competitive prices. It usually comes with intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at GEC RACK - Best Enterprise Web And Cloud Hosting Solutions provide, and permits everybody to administer their sites without worrying about server configuration and maintenance procedures, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting firm.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other VPS server web hosting account owners, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated web hosting server solution, and is a very good option for anyone who wants to run, for example, a live streaming site or a community site. The circumstance that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a great asset if you really have to implement certain server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of circumstances much more expensive than shared hosting or VPS web hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is very simple. If your company has a resource-consuming web portal, or just has very precise server setup and security requirements, the most suitable option would be a dedicated hosting web server that you or your technicians can manage directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You acquire complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical machine's resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your web portals.
