Web hosting is a sort of Internet service that allows persons and businesses to make their sites visible on the web. Web hosting service providers are companies that offer disk drive space on a web server held in a data center and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you begin?

The Internet has become an essential component of every person's everyday routine. It offers you the ability to make extra profit, but can also be a main source of income. In order to embed ads on your web page or to publicize goods that you offer, you always need a hosting solution, which will ensure that your online portal is safe and constantly reachable. But how do you discover one that is moderately priced and yet dependable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution web hosting providers have come up with is named shared hosting. With the shared hosting solution, plenty of customers are accommodated on one and the very same web hosting server. There are rigid limits on the system resources that each account can in fact utilize, thus making certain that they do not intervene with each other. The shared hosting solution offers satisfactory performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is used by only one individual. The shared solution enables web hosting suppliers to offer their customers modest prices. It ordinarily comes with user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at IKU provide, and permits everyone to administer their web portals without bothering about server setup and maintenance tasks, which are handled solely by the hosting accounts provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual private web server hosting clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated hosting solution, and is a perfect solution for anyone who desires to create, for instance, an audio or video streaming site or a community portal. The fact that you need to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a huge plus if you really have to make some server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most circumstances much more expensive than shared hosting or VPS server web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated server then? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a resource-consuming web site, or just has very explicit web server configuration and safety requirements, the most sensible option would be a dedicated web hosting server that you or your techs can administer directly. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and stability, the higher price is of no importance. You are bestowed with complete server root access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and intervening with your web portals.
