As its name hints, shared hosting is a service, which involves hosting web content. There are various forms and kinds of web hosting, based on the purpose and on the objectives. Yet, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the Internet. A host is in fact a web server that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its very own IP address, which allows users to access it via the World Wide Web. The web server's configuration and its system resources are dependent on the type of web hosting service it's going to be used for.

What are the various types of web hosting?

Based on the mission, the professional hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of web hosting permits the clients to lodge their files on a specific web server. With the ordinary file storage hosting service, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the individual that's availing of the service. This web hosting service traditionally concerns backups of personal computers , documents, personal files and even other web servers. This service may also involve certain limitations in relation to the web space and the root-level access. There may also be bandwidth restrictions, but that is dependent on the actual hosting provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting solution is quite similar to the previous hosting service form. Still, in contrast with the file storage hosting solution, the warez web hosting solution is used for circulating patented work without the approval of the patent owner. In brief - it appertains to the forbidden transmission of files and docs. There are numerous approaches for this to be attained, but the 2 chief methods are - through plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first approach entails either some web site, or, most commonly, just a directory on a web server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download proprietary docs free of charge. The second approach entails a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, through which people share files between each other. There aren't many web hosting firms that permit such form of web hosting on their hosting servers, mainly due to all the legal entanglements that it involves. Typically such web sites are hosted on private dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by third-party companies either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Email Web Hosting - this service is applicable with both shared web hosting and dedicated web servers, depending on the client's intention. If you wish to set up your own private SMTP server, then you will require either a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server that provides the level of access needed to complete such a procedure. For typical mail hosting purposes, however, you can open a simple shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's widely used, since the website hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, usually owned by different hosting providers.

Shared Hosting - the most famous and immensely utilized hosting service nowadays. It's used for hosting website files, whose sort is determined by the Operating System the web hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different types of files require different server OSs, or else they won't be displayed accurately on the Internet. This form of hosting may include data space and web traffic restrictions, server root access and CPU usage restrictions.

Based on the mission and on the usage, the user should choose the type of web hosting server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the web hosting provider that's going to supply it. There are several kinds of web servers, based on the specs and the website hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server offers a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and medium scale sites, which do not demand vast quotas of disk storage space and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they are based on the very same principle as the shared web servers. Even so, there are much fewer customers sharing the same server. That is why, each of them will receive a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, web storage space, bandwidth and CPU. Perfect for hosting bulky sites that do not need full server root privileges.

Virtual private servers are ideal for middle sized online portals, which do demand root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files. Normally, there are a bunch of VPS web server accounts located on the same physical machine. However, each of them is insulated from the rest and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated server set up and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees an enormous amount of resources. It also gives root-level access, which makes it a perfect solution for any kind of web portal that needs a hosting service.

The only question that's left is:

Which web hosting firm should I settle on?

As stated above, there are not many providers offering warez web hosting services due to legal problems. Such web hosting companies are being shut down almost every month. That is why, if you desire to start such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared website hosting solution is the most popular kind of web hosting service. Therefore, each hosting supplier provides it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as virtual private web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small sized web hosting suppliers do not have the means required for offering those services. You can easily ID such hosts by the kinds of solutions that they are supplying and by the manner in which they present them to the clients. For instance, certain web hosts allow you to commence with a small sized web hosting plan and afterwards move to a more powerful one, if you deem it compulsory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not need to transfer websites between web servers and there is no chance of suffering service disturbances due to all the problems that may appear.

We, at Publisher Host offer all sorts of solutions and have the necessary server resources and staff to ensure that their clients will not chance upon any complications when swapping services, which is what a top hosting company is actually all about.
