Shared web hosting is a type of online service that allows persons and businesses to make their sites discoverable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are firms that offer space on a hosting server housed in a datacenter facility and guarantee uninterrupted network uptime.

Where do you begin?

The Internet has become an indispensable component of everybody's daily agenda. It gives you the opportunity to earn extra profit, but can also be a major source of revenue. In order to place ads on your website or to publicize a service that you offer, you always require a hosting solution, which will make certain that your online portal is secure and continually reachable. But how do you find one that is moderately priced and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution web hosting suppliers have introduced is called shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, numerous hosting account holders are hosted on the very same web server. There are strict limits on the resources that each account can in fact avail of, thus guaranteeing that they do not meddle with each other. The shared hosting solution offers satisfactory performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is used by only one single individual. The shared web hosting solution permits shared web hosting companies to offer their customers low prices. It usually includes intuitive web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at BigBMC provide, and enables everybody to administer their web sites without bothering about server setup and maintenance tasks, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting firm.

VPS web hosting

With the VPS web hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other VPS clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual web server solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server solution, and is an excellent option for anyone who would like to host, for instance, a live streaming site or a community site. The fact that you have to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be an enormous asset if you really have to implement certain server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web server.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Dedicated web hosting servers are in most cases much more expensive than shared or private virtual web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated web hosting server then? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a busy web site, or just has very special server configuration and security requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated server that you or your server admins can manage directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You have full server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated web hosting server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your sites.
