As its name suggests, shared hosting is a service, which entails hosting online content. There are different forms and kinds of hosting, depending on the mission and on the usage. Even so, they all pertain to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the World Wide Web. A host is actually a web server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which permits users to have access to it via the Web. The web hosting server's configuration and its limitations are determined by the type of web hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the various types of web hosting?

Depending on the objective, the professional web hosting solution may be:

File Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the customers to stash their files on a given hosting server. With the conventional file web hosting service, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the client that's utilizing the service. This web hosting service usually concerns backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other hosting servers. This solution may also have certain limits when it comes to the disk space and the root privileges. There may also be bandwidth limitations, but that depends on the given web hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is very similar to the previous hosting service form. Nevertheless, unlike the file web hosting service, the warez hosting solution is utilized for circulating copyrighted materials without being given the green light by the license keeper. In brief - it involves the criminal circulation of files and docs. There are a lot of methods for this to be achieved, but the two principal approaches are - via simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and through P2P connections. The first approach involves either a given web page, or, most typically, simply a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download copyrighted files for free. The second way entails a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, via which people share files between each other. There are just a few website hosting corporations that allow that form of web hosting on their web servers, mainly due to all the legal entanglements that it presupposes. Commonly such websites are hosted on personal dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Web Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared website hosting and dedicated web servers, depending on the client's wish. If you desire to have your own personal SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a VPS or a dedicated web server that provides the access level needed to complete such a procedure. For standard e-mail hosting purposes, however, you can open an average shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a service that's very famous, since the web hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two separate servers, often belonging to separate web hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most widely spread and universally utilized hosting service as of today. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose type depends on the Operating System the hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files demand specific server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be shown properly on the Web. This type of web hosting may impose data space and web traffic restrictions, root-level access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the purpose and on the objectives, the client should select the kind of web server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the hosting distributor that's going to furnish it. There are various kinds of servers, depending on the specs and the website hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server supplies a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small and middle scale web portals, which do not need enormous quantities of web space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they perform on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Still, there are much fewer users hosted on the same hosting server. Therefore, each of them will obtain a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, web storage, web traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting huge online portals that do not need complete root access.

Virtual private servers are excellent for middle scale web sites, which do demand root access to the web server's configuration files. Usually, there are a handful of virtual server web hosting accounts hosted on the same machine. Even so, each of them is independent from the other ones and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated web hosting server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a mammoth amount of resources. It also includes server root access, which renders it the optimal solution for any sort of web portal that requires a website hosting solution.

The only question that's left is:

Which web hosting vendor should I select?

As already mentioned, there are just a few web hosts offering warez web hosting solutions due to legal problems. Such web hosting providers are being closed down virtually every month. That is why, if you would like to offer such a service, you should do it on your own personal computer. The shared web hosting solution is the most popular kind of web hosting service. Hence, each website hosting corporation offers it. Not all of them, though, provide services such as VPS web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small scale website hosting distributors do not have the means required for maintaining those services. You can effortlessly ID such hosting companies by the sorts of solutions that they are making available and by the manner in which they introduce them to the clients. For instance, some hosting providers allow you to start with a small sized website hosting package and then shift to a bigger one, if you deem it compulsory to do so. This is very suitable, because you do not have to migrate web sites between hosting servers and there is no danger of facing service interruptions due to all the problems that may crop up.
