The basics of web hosting

Blog provided by Electric Kitten

Web hosting is a service that enables individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. It is a type of Internet service that provides users with access to a server for the storage, management and delivery of files, documents, or web pages.

There are many different types of web hosting services available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common types are shared hosting, virtual private servers (VPS), dedicated servers and cloud hosting.

Shared Hosting is the cheapest option for starting a website. With this type of hosting, your site shares space on a server with other sites hosted by the same company. This can be good for small websites that don’t generate too much traffic, but it doesn’t offer as much flexibility or scalability as other options do.

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) give you more control over your website than shared hosts do because you get your own isolated partition on a server instead of sharing resources with other sites hosted by the same company. This can be helpful if you need more power or want to customize your environment, but it can also be more expensive than shared hosts.

Dedicated Servers provide even more power and flexibility than VPSs do because you have an entire server all to yourself. But it also requires the skillset to setup, manage, and troubleshoot the server and applications.
