Shared Hosting Description

Owning your own personal web page is necessary nowadays. The entry of the World Wide Web in our everyday lives suggests that, in order for someone to become noticed, or to make his voice heard, one has to design an online portal and post it online. In order to accomplish that, you actually need 2 things - a web site and a hosting solution. Prior to building a web site, though, it's crucial to understand that there are diverse sorts of hosting services and that not all websites can work with a randomly picked shared hosting. In order to explain this better, let's begin with the chief point:

What is Hosting?

Hosting, or also popular as 'web hosting', is a term that relates to the web hosting server itself, or the web hosting provider that provides the server. A server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's configured to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which enables the users to upload their web site files on the hosting server and to publish them on the Internet. There are 2 major types of servers, on the basis of the OS of the hosting server - Windows and Linux. The 2 Operating Systems are quite dissimilar and, in the majority of cases, not at all consistent with one another. Thus, before selecting the relevant service, one should first examine what sort of hosting server is demanded for their site.

If you haven't devised the site so far, then let us take a more exhaustive glimpse at the difference between the 2 varieties and at what their positive sides are.

What solution should you choose - Windows or Linux?

As stated, there are web app frameworks, which are only consistent with a particular Operating System. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not operate on a Linux server. Hence, if you intend to devise your website utilizing any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows solution. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which denotes that it provides restricted choices when it comes to server safety and privacy. Therefore, Linux is utilized by server admins around the world and most hosting distributors utilize it on their web hosting servers. Using Linux, the admin can set up the hosting server in a totally modifiable way, and if the web server is correctly set up, it can guarantee supreme safety against computer hackers and malware. Plus, the flexibility of Linux allows for greater software optimization, which brings about better site performance. For that reason, if you want maximum protection and web server operation, then you should devise your web site in such a manner that it performs with a Linux-based web server. This is not tough to fulfill, as the most famous Content Management Systems, also popular as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are completely consistent with Linux web servers and are famous all over the Globe for being one of the best web apps for constructing and managing sites. Surely, this doesn't mean that each service provider that's using Linux will have admins who are capable to correctly handle a Linux web hosting server. Choosing the appropriate web hosting company is very difficult at present, as most of them do not possess the ability to employ a professional, trained administrator. A Linux web hosting server that hasn't been correctly configured can be quite risky to your site and personal information. Therefore, when picking a hosting corporation, it's always advisable to settle on an established web hosting firm that's been in business for at least a few years.

How to recognize the correct hosting vendor for my site?

These companies are easily detectable by the way in which they are offering their hosting plans. Established web hosting companies provide custom-built functionality, diverse open-source PHP-powered scripts or web app frameworks. The most practiced, however, possess even their own personal custom-invented hosting Control Panels devised particularly for their platform. A website hosting Control Panel is an online-based graphical user interface, through which the user manages the entire web hosting account. Smaller-sized hosting firms use ready-to-use CPs such as cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to guarantee utmost security and performance for their website hosting services, the biggest web hosting service providers offer to their clients their very own personal in-house made web hosting CPs created by their very own administrators. We, at 'My Hosting Account', don't simply provide our very own custom-made Control Panel, but have also created a free-of-charge PHP script package, which enables our clients to effortlessly activate any of the aforementioned web application frameworks. Features like these imply that we have the capability, the resources and the experience to be entrusted with keeping your private details private and your website - available on the Internet.
