Shared hosting is a sort of Internet service that enables persons and corporations to make their web portals reachable on the web. Hosting providers are companies that offer disk storage space on a web hosting server kept in a datacenter facility and guarantee continuous website accessibility.

Where do you begin?

The Internet has become an integral element in everybody's everyday agenda. It gives you the opportunity to make additional cash, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to place adverts on your website or to publicize a commodity that you sell, you invariably require a hosting solution, which will make sure that your site is protected and constantly accessible. But how do you discover one that is cheap and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution web hosts have come up with is called shared hosting. With the shared hosting solution, numerous web hosting account holders are accommodated on the very same hosting server. There are harsh limitations on the resources that each shared web hosting account can in fact avail of, thus guaranteeing that they do not interfere with each other. The shared solution offers acceptable performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is utilized by only one single client. The shared web hosting solution permits shared hosting corporations to offer their clients competitive prices. It usually comes with intuitive web hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Host54 provide, and permits everyone to manage their websites without worrying about server installation and maintenance procedures, which are taken care of solely by the hosting firm.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other VPS web server clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The Virtual Private Server solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting web server solution, and is a perfect option for anyone who wants to host, for example, an audio or video streaming web site or a social networking web site. The fact that you need to cope with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a great upside if you really need to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most situations much more high-priced than shared or VPS web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is very simple. If your company has a popular site, or just has very exact server setup and safety requirements, the proper option is a dedicated web hosting server that you or your server admins can administer directly. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is not a concern. You acquire full server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and messing with your web portals.
