What Precisely is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is a type of online service that enables persons and corporations to render their websites visible online. Hosting providers are companies that offer hard drive storage space on a hosting server stored in a data center and guarantee continuous website accessibility.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become an integral component of every person's everyday life. It gives you the possibility to gain money on the side, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to display advertisements on your website or to popularize a service that you sell, you always require a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your website is secure and always up and running. But how do you find one that is modestly priced and yet reliable enough?

The solution hosting suppliers have brought forth is called shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, a lot of hosting account holders are accommodated on the same hosting server. There are strict limits on the system resources that each account can actually utilize, thus ensuring that they do not intervene with each other. The shared hosting solution offers acceptable performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is used by only one client. The shared solution allows shared hosting companies to offer their clients attractive prices. It ordinarily includes intuitive web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at SSD Host ECWebDesigns provide, and permits everyone to manage their sites without worrying about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are taken care of solely by the hosting plans provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual private web hosting server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web hosting server solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who desires to build, for example, a live streaming website or a social networking site. The circumstance that you need to take care of the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a big plus if you really need to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of cases much more high-priced than shared or private virtual server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is pretty simple. If your company has a content-heavy website, or simply has very precise server architecture and safety requirements, the most logical choice would be a dedicated web hosting server that you or your techs can administer directly. For somebody who is ready to invest in safety and reliability, the greater price is not a concern. You gain full root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your sites.
