What Does Shared Hosting Denote?
As its name implies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting online content. There are different varieties and kinds of hosting, depending on the goals and on the objectives. Still, they all entail hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the World Wide Web. A host is in fact a server that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its own personal IP address, which permits people to gain access to it through the World Wide Web. The hosting server's configuration and its limitations depend on the kind of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.

Depending on the application, the business hosting service may be:
File Storage Hosting - this type of web hosting allows the customers to stash their files on a certain hosting server. With the conventional file hosting service, the files that are stashed may only be accessed by the user that's availing of the service. This hosting service normally refers to backups of PCs , documents, private files and even other web hosting servers. This service may also involve given restrictions when it comes to the disk storage and the root access. There may also be bandwidth quota limits, but that is dependent on the particular web hosting service provider.
Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting solution is resembling the previous web hosting service form. Even so, unlike the file storage web hosting service, the warez web hosting service is used for propagating patented materials without being given the green light by the patent holder. To put it briefly - it is connected with the unauthorized circulation of files and documents. There are numerous ways for this to be done, but the 2 essential ways are - through plain HTTP downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first one entails either a certain website, or, most often, simply a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download proprietary files for free. The second way entails a peer-to-peer connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, through which people swap files between each other. There are very few website hosting corporations that allow such form of web hosting on their hosting servers, chiefly due to all the legal problems that it presupposes. Usually such web portals are hosted on private dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.
Mail Web Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, based on the customer's wish. If you wish to run your own private SMTP electronic mail server, then you will require either a virtual private web server or a dedicated web hosting server that offers the access level required to accomplish such an operation. For regular electronic mail web hosting purposes, though, you can set up an ordinary shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely famous, since the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, often belonging to different hosts.
Shared Hosting - the most widely spread and widely utilized hosting service at the moment. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose sort is determined by the OS the hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files request different web hosting server Operating Systems, or else they won't be exhibited properly on the Web. This form of hosting may involve server space and traffic restrictions, server root access and CPU usage restrictions.
Based on the aims and on the usage, the customer should select the sort of hosting server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the hosting corporation that's going to supply it. There are various kinds of servers, based on the specifications and the web hosting services that they offer. These are:
Shared Hosting Server - a shared hosting server supplies a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and middle size websites, which do not require large quotas of data space and bandwidth.
Semi-dedicated Servers - they function on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much less clients sharing the same web hosting server. That is why, each of them will obtain a bigger share of the web server's resources like RAM, disk storage space, bandwidth and CPU. Perfect for hosting heavy web pages that do not need root access.
Virtual private servers are excellent for medium scale websites, which do need root-level access to the web server's config files. Typically, there are a handful of virtual server accounts located on the same server. Nonetheless, each of them is independent from the rest and has its own Operating System.
Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a mammoth amount of resources. It also gives full server root privileges, which renders it an ideal platform for any type of site that necessitates a website hosting solution.
The sole question that remains is:
Which hosting distributor should I settle on?
As already stated, there are just a few providers offering warez web hosting services due to legal complications. Such web hosting companies are being shut down practically every month. Therefore, if you wish to start such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared web hosting solution is the most widely spread type of web hosting service. So, every web hosting distributor offers it. Not all of them, however, offer solutions such as private virtual servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the smaller website hosting providers do not have the resources required for maintaining those services. You can quickly ID such hosts by the sorts of services that they are making available and by the way that they present them to the customers. For instance, certain companies permit you to commence with a small scale website hosting package and subsequently move to a more powerful one, if you consider it obligatory to do so. This is very convenient, because you do not need to move web portals between servers and there is no possibility of experiencing network downtime due to all the problems that may occur.
