Hosting is a type of online service that allows persons and organizations to make their online portals viewable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are companies that offer disk space on a web hosting server kept in a datacenter facility and guarantee continuous network connectivity.
Where do you start?
The World Wide Web has become an essential fragment of everybody's daily agenda. It offers you the opportunity to earn additional cash, but can also be a major source of income. In order to put advertisements on your site or to promote a product or a service that you offer, you always need a hosting solution, which will ensure that your web portal is protected and always available. But how do you find one that is reasonably priced and yet reliable enough?

The solution hosting vendors have come up with is named shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, lots of shared hosting account holders are hosted on the same server. There are severe restrictions on the resources that each shared web hosting account can in fact utilize, thus guaranteeing that they do not meddle with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers decent performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is utilized by just one individual. The shared web hosting solution allows hosting corporations to offer their customers moderate prices. It typically comes with intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at TiaMicA provide, and lets everyone administer their web portals without bothering about server configuration and maintenance procedures, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting distributor.
With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other VPS server hosting account owners, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The private virtual server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server hosting solution, and is a very good option for anyone who wants to create, for instance, an audio or video streaming web site or a community web site. The circumstance that you need to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a great asset if you indeed need to make some server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web hosting server.
Dedicated servers are in most instances much more high-priced than shared hosting or private virtual web server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a resource-intensive online portal, or just has very explicit web server setup and safety requirements, the most reasonable option is a dedicated web server that you or your server admins can manage directly. For somebody who is willing to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is of no importance. You are granted complete root-level access and can utilize 100 percent of the physical server's resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your web sites.
