What Does Shared Hosting Signify?

Shared hosting is a sort of Internet service that permits persons and companies to render their sites discoverable on the web. Web hosting providers are firms that offer disk space on a web hosting server kept in a datacenter facility and ensure uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The Internet is an essential staple in everybody's daily routine. It gives you the opportunity to gain a bit of cash on the side, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to place adverts on your web site or to promote goods that you sell, you invariably require a hosting solution, which will ensure that your web site is safe and continually available. But how do you find one that is affordably priced and yet stable enough?

The solution web hosting corporations have introduced is named shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, many hosting clients are accommodated on one and the very same web hosting server. There are stringent limits on the system resources that each account can in fact avail of, thus making certain that they do not interfere with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated web server, which is used by just one individual. The shared web hosting solution enables shared hosting distributors to offer their clients modest prices. It typically comes with user-friendly Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at iMatrix ICT Group provide, and lets everyone administer their online portals without worrying about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are handled solely by the hosting vendor.

Virtual private servers hosting

With the virtual private servers hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other virtual web server customers, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual web server solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web server hosting solution, and is a perfect solution for anyone who desires to create, for example, an audio or video streaming website or a community web portal. The fact that you need to deal with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a big advantage if you indeed need to implement some server configuration modifications - something that would be inconceivable on a shared web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of instances much more expensive than shared hosting or virtual web server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated web hosting server then? The explanation is quite simple. If your company has a resource-consuming web portal, or just has very explicit web server setup and security requirements, the proper choice is a dedicated hosting web server that you or your server admins can administer directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and reliability, the higher price is not a problem. You receive root privileges and can use 100% of the server's system resources without anyone else availing of these system resources and interfering with your web pages.
