Web hosting is a kind of online service that enables individuals and organizations to render their websites accessible online. Hosting service providers are companies that offer data storage space on a hosting server situated in a data center and guarantee constant Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The Internet is a key staple in everyone's daily routine. It offers you the possibility to earn some side cash, but can also be a major source of income. In order to incorporate ads on your web site or to promote a service that you offer, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will make certain that your web page is secure and always up and running. But how do you find one that is inexpensive and yet reliable enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution web hosting companies have come up with is called shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, plenty of users are hosted on one and the same web server. There are austere limits on the resources that each user account can actually utilize, thus making sure that they do not meddle with each other. The shared solution offers good performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated hosting server, which is utilized by just one single customer. The shared solution allows web hosting suppliers to offer their customers low prices. It ordinarily includes user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at UK-HQ Internet Services provide, and permits everyone to manage their web portals without worrying about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are handled solely by the hosting services provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual hosting server customers, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS web hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated hosting server solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who would like to have, for example, an audio or video streaming site or a community website. The circumstance that you need to cope with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a great asset if you indeed need to make some server configuration modifications - something that would be impossible on a shared web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of cases much more expensive than shared hosting or VPS hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated web server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a repeatedly visited web site, or simply has very special server configuration and safety requirements, the wisest option would be a dedicated hosting server that you or your admins can manage directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the higher price is not an issue. You receive full server root privileges and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else using these system resources and interfering with your sites.
