As its name signifies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting online content. There are different forms and types of hosting, based on the goals and on the objectives. Even so, they all entail hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a web hosting service that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its own Internet Protocol address, which enables users to get access to it via the World Wide Web. The web server's architecture and its system resources depend on the form of web hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the different types of hosting?

Depending on the usage, the business hosting solution may be:

File Storage Hosting - this form of web hosting enables the clients to lodge their files on a particular server. With the conventional file storage web hosting service, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the individual that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution traditionally concerns backups of PCs , documents, personal files and even other servers. This solution may also contain certain restrictions in terms of the data storage space and the root privileges. There may also be traffic limitations, but that is dependent on the particular service provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting solution is comparable with the previous web hosting service form. Nonetheless, in contrast with the file storage hosting solution, the warez hosting service is utilized for circulating patented materials without being green-lighted by the license proprietor. In short - it is related to the criminal circulation of files and docs. There are many methods for this to be executed, but the two main approaches are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first way involves either some web portal, or, most often, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented files for free. The second approach involves a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which people share files between each other. There are a few website hosting corporations that allow that type of hosting on their hosting servers, mostly because of all the legal predicaments that it entails. Typically such web portals are hosted on personal dedicated web servers that are registered by 3rd party companies either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Hosting - this solution is relevant with both shared hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, based on the customer's intention. If you would like to launch your very own personal SMTP electronic mail server, then you will need either a private virtual web server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the access level needed to carry out such a task. For traditional electronic mail hosting purposes, though, you can create a regular shared website hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a service that's very famous, since the website hosting and the mail hosting services are being served by two separate web servers, usually owned by separate firms.

Shared Hosting - the most widely spread and frequently utilized hosting service as of today. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the web server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files necessitate specific server Operating Systems, or else they won't be exhibited appropriately on the World Wide Web. This type of web hosting may involve server storage space and traffic restrictions, root access and CPU usage limits.

Based on the purpose and on the objectives, the user should select the type of web hosting server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the web hosting provider that's going to supply it. There are various kinds of web servers, based on the specifications and the web hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server provides a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small sized and medium size web portals, which do not demand huge amounts of disk space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they function on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much fewer users sharing the same hosting server. Hence, each of them will have a bigger share of the server's resources like RAM, disk storage, traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting immense web pages that do not demand root access.

Virtual private servers are perfect for medium scale web pages, which do need root access to the hosting server's configuration files. Usually, there are a number of private virtual web hosting server accounts situated on the same server. Even so, each of them is insulated from the other ones and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a vast quantity of resources. It also gives root privileges, which renders it a perfect environment for any type of site that needs a web hosting service.

The sole question that's left is:

Which website hosting company should I opt for?

As already stated, there aren't many hosting providers providing warez web hosting solutions because of legal predicaments. Such hosting companies are being shut down almost every month. For that reason, if you wish to set up such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared website hosting service is the most widespread type of hosting service. Because of that, each and every website hosting firm offers it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as virtual web servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the smaller web hosting firms do not have the resources needed for maintaining those services. You can effortlessly ID such companies by the types of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the clients. For instance, certain hosts allow you to kick off with a low-end website hosting plan and afterwards move to a bigger one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is extremely suitable, since you do not need to move web pages between web hosting servers and there is no danger of suffering service downtime because of all the predicaments that may show up.
