Description of Shared Web Hosting

You have a notion that you wish to turn into a web site? Your first step should be to keep your inspiration and find a spot for your site on the World Wide Web so that it will be always accessible to the whole world.

Where should you host your web page?

Because the number of web pages on the web has risen exponentially during the last several years, the demand for web hosting services has also lead to the birth of innumerable shared web hosting distributors. These are firms that offer you disk space for your own website on their servers.

Kinds of web hosting services

The range of web hosting services fluctuates greatly, so do the requirements of the web page possessors. The most basic web hosting type is the small-size file hosting solution, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a web-based hosting Control Panel. A lot of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer this service for free. Personal web site possessors and corporations can also obtain hosting services from various web hosting vendors. Personal web hosting services are usually either free, ad-financed, or reasonably priced. Business website hosting services usually cost more, but due to the gigantic competition on the web hosting marketplace, an escalating number of hosting corporations, like us at GNet Hosting, offer business web hosting services at cheap prices and with flexible invoicing intervals.

Kinds of sites and their prerequisites

The free-of-charge website hosting platform is generally sufficient for personal websites like portfolios or online journals. A more resource-swallowing web site, like a social networking site or a corporate site, necessitates a more advanced website hosting package that offers database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP). If you would like to launch an Internet shop, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) must be supported by the web hosting provider of your choosing. At present, SSL certificates are furnished by most hosting suppliers.

The hosting Control Panel

The web hosting solutions provider usually also provides a Control Panel GUI for managing your files, e-mail boxes, electronic mail aliases, domain names, DNS records, and so on.

Service uptime

When picking a hosting solution, website availability is a very essential aspect. The availability of a website is estimated on an annual basis by taking into account the time when the web site is publicly accessible and discoverable on the World Wide Web. Network and service availability guarantees, therefore, should be attentively examined when ordering a website hosting service. You should double-check the SLAs and the ToS of the hosting supplier of your choosing in advance. Finding reviews from existing customers is also a quite clever move before you choose to sign up.

The shared web hosting platform

The most popular and affordably priced type of web hosting service is the shared hosting solution. It includes 24x7 support, which is a great benefit for customers who would not like to cope with server maintenance procedures, but could also obstruct customers who want to exercise more authority over the hosting server. For such customers, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server web hosting would be more suitable. Most standard apps and scripts work okay on a shared server. Furthermore, the shared hosting solution is more affordably priced than other types of web hosting solutions, like the dedicated servers web hosting, since the hosting packages provider divides the server among plenty of users. The shared web hosting solution usually involves usage limits that ensure that the different clients do not intervene with each other and that the shared hosting web server remains stable.

Administering your shared hosting account

Shared web hosting packages normally offer a web-based Control Panel, such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, and so on. The majority of the large-sized hosting service providers, again like us at GNet Hosting, use their very own personal custom-developed hosting Control Panel.

Web server maintenance

With the shared website hosting platform, the web hosting provider is responsible for administering the web and electronic mail servers, for installing web server software, software updates and patches, and for offering technical support to its customers. The majority of web servers are based on the Linux OS. The hosting supplier's administrators are responsible for keeping the OS up to date, unless you have a dedicated hosting server and full root access.
