As its name hints, web hosting is a service, which entails hosting online content. There are various varieties and types of web hosting, depending on the goals and on the objectives. However, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the Internet. A web host is actually a server that is connected to the Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which permits users to get access to it via the Web. The server's architecture and its system resources are subject to the sort of web hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the various types of web hosting?

Depending on the purpose, the professional hosting solution may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this form of web hosting enables the customers to stash their files on a particular server. With the regular file storage hosting solution, the files that are hosted may only be accessed by the individual that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution typically is connected with backups of PCs , docs, personal files and even other hosting servers. This service may also include certain limits in relation to the web storage space and the root access. There may also be traffic quota limitations, but that depends on the particular hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting solution is quite similar to the previous hosting service form. Still, unlike the file storage hosting solution, the warez hosting service is used for circulating proprietary work without the authorization of the licence bearer. In short - it pertains to the illicit dissemination of files and materials. There are many methods for this to be done, but the two chief ways are - through simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first way involves either a given website, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented documents for free. The second method entails a peer-to-peer connection, availing of the so-called Torrent servers, via which people transmit files between each other. There are a few website hosting corporations that allow that type of web hosting on their hosting servers, mostly due to all the judicial problems that it involves. Typically such web portals are hosted on personal dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Hosting - this service is utilized with both shared web hosting and dedicated hosting servers, based on the client's intention. If you wish to create your own personal SMTP server, then you will need either a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the level of access needed to carry out such an operation. For common email web hosting ends, however, you can open a regular shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely used, since the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by 2 separate web servers, usually belonging to separate companies.

Web Hosting - the most widely spread and commonly utilized hosting service today. It's used for hosting site files, whose sort is dependent on the Operating System the server is using - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files need concrete web server OSs, otherwise they won't be shown accurately on the World Wide Web. This type of web hosting may include storage space and traffic quota limitations, root-level access and central processing unit usage restrictions.

Based on the mission and on the usage, the user should pick the type of hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the web hosting corporation that's going to supply it. There are several kinds of web hosting servers, depending on the specs and the web hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server offers a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small size and middle scale web pages, which do not need immense quotas of disk space and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting - they work on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Still, there are much less users hosted on the same hosting server. For that reason, each of them will enjoy a bigger quota of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, storage space, bandwidth and CPU. Ideal for hosting bulky web portals that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPS web hosting are excellent for middle sized sites, which do require root access to the web hosting server's config files. Commonly, there are several virtual private web hosting server accounts located on the same physical server. Nevertheless, each of them is autonomous from the others and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Web Hosting - a fully dedicated server set up and accessed by you and only you. It ensures a mammoth amount of resources. It also includes complete root-level access, which makes it an ideal solution for any sort of web site that needs a website hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which web hosting vendor should I opt for?

As already mentioned, there are very few hosts offering warez web hosting solutions because of legal troubles. Such hosting providers are being closed down practically every month. For that reason, if you desire to create such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared web hosting service is the most famous type of hosting service. Therefore, each website hosting firm provides it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as virtual private web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Web Hosting and dedicated servers. Most of the smaller web hosting firms do not have the means demanded for offering those services. You can easily ID such web hosting companies by the kinds of services that they are supplying and by the way that they present them to the clients. For example, some web hosts permit you to commence with a small sized web hosting plan and subsequently move to a bigger one, if you consider it necessary to do so. This is very suitable, since you do not need to move websites between hosting servers and there is no chance of facing service outages due to all the problems that may crop up.
