  • Overview of types of web hosting

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    As the web hosting industry evolves, so do the types of web hosting offered. They range from shared hosting (also called virtual hosting), where clients have accounts on servers shared with other clients, to dedicated hosting, where clients have sole use of entire servers. Beyond dedicated hosting is colocation, where users place their own servers in a datacenter and are responsible for the servers themselves.

    Between the above types of web hosting are reseller hosting (clients can resell web space to their clients, using accounts on shared servers) and VPS hosting (clients have part of a server that's partitioned off from other accounts).

    Web hosting is offered on Linux/Unix or Windows servers, which gives us the industry terms Linux hosting and Windows hosting.

    In addition, there are specialty types of web hosting (application-specific hosting), where the web host tailors the service for specific needs, such as clustered hosting and file hosting.

    The selection of the nature and type of web hosting would depend on the size of the firm and their objective of launching the website or websites. Clients of web hosting companies will have to be very particular in making their selection.

      Another great benefit that comes with your web hosting package is bandwidth. Bandwidth is a measure of the amount of data traffic that can occur between your website and the rest of the internet. If you have a sufficient amount of bandwidth for your website, your site will be easier for visitor to view the site.

          The major difference between the two is that a dedicated server is a physical piece of equipment housed in a room somewhere. Cloud computing, on the other hand is a virtual server which allows customization, load balancing, and storage. Due to the confusion between the two, many businesses are now opting to utilize a hybrid hosting system which combines the two.

            Cloud hosting is missing but I think it is still irrelevant to us mere mortals. It is way too expensive and only corporations are using it right now. VPS is still the biggest choice amongst users on the higher end which I think is priced reasonably.
