Shared hosting is a type of online service that enables individuals and corporations to make their web sites viewable on the Internet. Web hosting providers are companies that offer disk drive storage space on a hosting server housed in a datacenter and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The Internet is an indispensable part of every person's everyday agenda. It gives you the possibility to gain additional money, but can also be a major source of income. In order to incorporate commercials on your website or to publicize a commodity that you sell, you invariably require a hosting solution, which will make certain that your web page is secure and continually visible. But how do you find one that is modestly priced and yet reliable enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution hosting distributors have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, lots of hosting customers are hosted on the same server. There are strict restrictions on the system resources that each user account can in fact make use of, thus making sure that they do not interfere with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers decent performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by just one user. The shared web hosting solution allows shared hosting service providers to offer their customers cheap prices. It usually comes with user-friendly Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Hostphase.com provide, and permits everyone to administer their websites without bothering about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting supplier.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other virtual server hosting clients, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS web hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web server solution, and is a perfect option for anyone who would like to host, for example, a live streaming website or a social network. The fact that you need to cope with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a huge advantage if you indeed need to implement certain server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of cases much more high-priced than shared hosting or VPS hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is pretty simple. If your firm has a heavy resource-consuming website, or just has very specific web server configuration and security requirements, the most suitable option is a dedicated server that you or your techs can administer directly. For someone who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not an issue. You acquire full server root privileges and can use 100 percent of the physical server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and intervening with your sites.
