Hosting Packages Description

As its name suggests, hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the aims and on the objectives. However, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a hosting server that is linked to the Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which enables people to access it via the Web. The web server's architecture and its system resources depend on the kind of web hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the various forms of web hosting?

Based on the application, the business hosting solution may be:

File Storage Hosting - this type of hosting enables the clients to keep their files on a certain hosting server. With the normal file web hosting solution, the files that are deposited may only be accessed by the customer that's using the service. This hosting service traditionally includes backups of computers , docs, personal files and even other web hosting servers. This solution may also impose given limits in terms of the data storage space and the root-level access. There may also be web traffic limitations, but that is dependent on the particular web host.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is resembling the previous web hosting service type. However, unlike the file hosting service, the warez hosting service is utilized for propagating proprietary content without the approval of the license possessor. To cut a long story short - it is connected with the forbidden distribution of files and materials. There are numerous approaches for this to be accomplished, but the 2 essential methods are - via simple HTTP downloading and through P2P connections. The first way entails either a particular web portal, or, most often, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented content for free. The second method entails a peer-to-peer connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, via which users exchange files between each other. There are just a few hosting vendors that permit such form of web hosting on their web hosting servers, chiefly owing to all the judicial entanglements that it involves. Usually such web sites are hosted on personal dedicated servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Web Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, depending on the client's intention. If you wish to build your very own private SMTP mail server, then you will need either a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting server that offers the level of access required to perform such a task. For ordinary electronic mail hosting purposes, though, you can set up an average shared hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a service that's very used, since the web hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two different web servers, often owned by different web hosts.

Hosting - the most famous and vastly used hosting service nowadays. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose sort is determined by the Operating System the hosting server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files request different web hosting server OSs, otherwise they won't be exhibited properly on the Internet. This kind of hosting may include server storage space and bandwidth limits, root access and CPU usage restrictions.

Depending on the purpose and on the usage, the user should choose the type of web server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the website hosting supplier that's going to supply it. There are various kinds of servers, depending on the configuration and the website hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server supplies a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small and medium sized sites, which do not require huge amounts of data storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Packages - they perform on the very same principle as the shared web hosting servers. However, there are much fewer users accommodated on the same hosting server. That is why, each of them will enjoy a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, disk storage, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting popular sites that do not demand root-level access.

VPS are excellent for middle size web sites, which do require root access to the hosting server's configuration files. Generally, there are a few virtual server web hosting accounts situated on the same machine. Nevertheless, each of them is insulated from the rest and has its own Operating System.

Dedicated Package - a completely dedicated web server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a tremendous amount of resources. It also gives root-level access, which makes it a perfect solution for any sort of web portal that necessitates a hosting service.

The only question that remains is:

Which hosting distributor should I settle on?

As mentioned above, there are not many hosting companies offering warez web hosting services due to legal entanglements. Such providers are being shut down practically every month. For that reason, if you wish to offer such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared web hosting service is the most widespread type of web hosting service. That is why, every website hosting provider provides it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as virtual web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Packages and dedicated web servers. Most of the smaller website hosting vendors do not have the means demanded for offering those services. You can easily identify such web hosts by the sorts of services that they are offering and by the way that they present them to the customers. For example, certain providers allow you to commence with a low-end website hosting plan and afterwards shift to a more advanced one, if you deem it compulsory to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not need to migrate websites between web hosting servers and there is no risk of facing service outages because of all the problems that may take place.

We, at Greenolive Hosting Solutions offer all types of solutions and possess the needed server resources and staff to assure that their clients will not suffer any hassles when changing services, which is what a top hosting distributor is in fact all about.
