As its name implies, website hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are various forms and kinds of web hosting, based on the purpose and on the functions. Still, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the Internet. A web host is actually a hosting server that is linked to the Internet and has its own Internet Protocol address, which allows users to access it via the Web. The server's architecture and its resources are dependent on the sort of web hosting solution it will be utilized for.

What are the various forms of hosting?

Depending on the objective, the web hosting solution may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of hosting enables the clients to accommodate their files on a specific web server. With the normal file web hosting solution, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the customer that's availing of the service. This web hosting service normally involves backups of computers , docs, personal files and even other web servers. This solution may also include given limits in relation to the server space and the root access. There may also be web traffic quota limitations, but that depends on the particular provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous hosting service form. Still, in contrast with the file storage hosting service, the warez web hosting service is utilized for distributing proprietary work without being green-lighted by the licence holder. To cut a long story short - it is related to the illicit distribution of files and docs. There are lots of approaches for this to be accomplished, but the 2 essential methods are - through plain HTTP downloading and through P2P connections. The first one entails either a given website, or, most commonly, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download copyrighted documents free of charge. The second way entails a peer-to-peer connection, making use of the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users swap files between each other. There aren't many web hosting distributors that allow that form of hosting on their servers, mainly due to all the judicial troubles that it presupposes. Usually such web sites are hosted on personal dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Hosting - this solution is used with both shared hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, based on the client's wish. If you desire to have your very own private SMTP electronic mail server, then you will require either a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the level of access needed to complete such an operation. For traditional electronic mail web hosting purposes, though, you can use a normal shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a solution that's widely famous, because the web hosting and the email hosting services are being served by 2 different web servers, usually owned by different hosting providers.

Website Hosting - the most popular and broadly used hosting service at the moment. It's used for hosting web site files, whose kind depends on the OS the web server is running - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files demand specific web hosting server OSs, or else they won't be shown correctly on the World Wide Web. This form of hosting may have storage space and traffic quota limits, root access and central processing unit usage limits.

Based on the goals and on the objectives, the client should pick the sort of server that he requires for his work, and, of course, the web hosting provider that's going to provide it. There are various types of servers, based on the configuration and the website hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server provides a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small sized and middle size sites, which do not need big quotas of disk storage and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting - they are based on the very same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Yet, there are much less customers sharing the same server. For that reason, each of them will receive a larger share of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk storage space, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting heavy web sites that do not require full root privileges.

VPS web hosting are perfect for medium size sites, which do demand root access to the hosting server's config files. Generally, there are a number of virtual private web server hosting accounts sharing the same server. However, each of them is insulated from the others and runs its own Operating System.

Dedicated Web Hosting - a completely dedicated physical server configured and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a considerable amount of system resources. It also offers root privileges, which makes it an excellent solution for any sort of website that requires a hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which website hosting vendor should I choose?

As mentioned above, there are very few hosting providers providing warez hosting solutions because of legal predicaments. Such companies are being shut down practically every month. For that reason, if you desire to provide such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared hosting solution is the most popular kind of web hosting service. Hence, each hosting vendor offers it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as VPS web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Web Hosting and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the small scale hosting corporations do not have the means demanded for maintaining those services. You can easily identify such web hosts by the sorts of solutions that they are making available and by the way that they present them to the clientele. For instance, certain hosting providers allow you to kick off with a small sized web hosting account and subsequently move to a bigger one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is very suitable, since you do not have to migrate websites between web hosting servers and there is no risk of facing service interruptions because of all the predicaments that may appear.
