Explanation of Shared Web Hosting

Having your own personal site is essential in today's society. The entry of the Internet in our daily lives denotes that, in order for somebody to become seen, or to make his voice heard, one has to design a website and get it online. In order to accomplish that, you actually require two things - a site and a hosting solution. Before developing an online portal, however, it's important to understand that there are different types of web hosting services and that not all sites can operate with a randomly chosen shared web hosting. In order to illustrate this better, let us commence with the central theme:

What is Web Hosting?

Hosting, or also known as 'web hosting', is a designation that refers to the actual web hosting server, or the provider that administers the web server. A web server is a computer that's connected to the web and that's set up to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which permits the clients to upload their files on the web hosting server and to make them visible on the web. There are 2 main types of hosting servers, depending on the OS of the server - Windows and Linux. The two Operating Systems are quite dissimilar and, in most cases, not at all consistent with one another. That is the reason why, prior to picking the suitable solution, one should first discover what type of web hosting server is required for their web page.

If you haven't set up the site yet, then let's take a more exhaustive look at the distinction between the 2 types and at what their benefits are.

What platform should you choose - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are applications, which are solely consistent with a given Operating System. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not operate on a Linux hosting server. So, if you intend to construct your website utilizing any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows platform. Windows, though, is not an open-source software platform, which denotes that it provides limited possibilities in terms of server safety and privacy. That's why, Linux is favored by server admins worldwide and the majority of hosting distributors use it on their web hosting servers. Using Linux, the admin can set up the hosting server in a fully customizable manner, and if the web hosting server is appropriately configured, it can offer total safety against computer hackers and malicious software. In addition, the flexibility of Linux allows for better optimization, which contributes to better site performance. Thus, if you are looking for ultimate protection and server functioning, then you should devise your website in such a manner that it performs with a Linux-powered web server. This is not problematic to fulfill, because the most famous Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are completely compatible with Linux servers and are famous all over the Globe for being one of the best frameworks for devising and handling sites. Of course, this doesn't suggest that each and every web host that's using Linux will have admins who are able to correctly run a Linux web server. Picking the right web hosting service provider is very difficult at the moment, since most of them do not possess the ability to hire a capable, practiced web admin. A Linux web server that hasn't been correctly set up can be very risky to your website and personal info. Hence, when selecting a web hosting corporation, it's always recommendable to select an established web hosting vendor that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to recognize the appropriate web hosting supplier for my website?

These hosting distributors are easily recognizable by the way in which they are supplying their hosting services. Experienced web hosting companies offer custom-built features, various PHP-based scripts or software apps. The most experienced, though, possess even their very own personal custom-created website hosting CPs devised particularly for their system. A website hosting Control Panel is an online-based tool, through which the client handles the entire web hosting account. Smaller-sized web hosting service providers make use of ready-for-use CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure maximum safety and efficiency for their website hosting services, the biggest service providers furnish their customers with their very own personal in-house made website hosting CPs created by their own admins. We, at 'Fireband Cloud', don't just offer our own personal custom-developed CP, but have also developed a free PHP-driven script installer, which enables our customers to easily install any of the mentioned web content management software apps. Features such as these confirm that we have the capability, the resources and the necessary experience to be entrusted with keeping your private details private and your website - available on the web.
