As its name hints, web hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are various varieties and types of hosting, based on the mission and on the objectives. Nevertheless, they all are related to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available throughout the Web. A web host is actually a server that is connected to the Web and has its own Internet Protocol address, which allows users to get access to it through the World Wide Web. The server's architecture and its system resources are determined by the type of web hosting solution it will be used for.

What are the various forms of hosting?

Based on the objective, the professional hosting service may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the customers to keep their files on a particular hosting server. With the normal file storage hosting service, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution typically involves backups of personal computers , documents, personal files and even other servers. This solution may also contain given limits with regard to the data storage and the root privileges. There may also be web traffic quota limitations, but that depends on the given hosting provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is resembling the previous hosting service form. In spite of that, unlike the file web hosting service, the warez hosting solution is utilized for spreading proprietary work without the permission of the patent proprietor. To put it briefly - it entails the criminal dissemination of files and docs. There are multiple ways for this to be fulfilled, but the 2 essential ways are - via plain HTTP downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first approach involves either a certain web site, or, most often, just a directory on a hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download copyrighted docs free of cost. The second method involves a P2P connection, using the so-called Torrent web servers, via which users share files between each other. There are a few web hosting corporations that permit such type of hosting on their web servers, chiefly owing to all the legal predicaments that it entails. Generally such web sites are hosted on personal dedicated web servers that are registered by third-party firms either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Hosting - this solution is relevant with both shared website hosting and dedicated web servers, based on the user's wish. If you would like to launch your own personal SMTP e-mail server, then you will need either a virtual web server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the level of access needed to carry out such a task. For conventional e-mail hosting purposes, however, you can create a plain shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's very popular, since the website hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two different web servers, usually belonging to separate providers.

Web Hosting - the most widespread and largely used hosting service nowadays. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose kind is dependent on the OS the server is availing of - Linux or Windows. Different sorts of files request different server Operating Systems, or else they won't be exhibited appropriately on the Internet. This form of web hosting may have web storage and bandwidth restrictions, root access and CPU usage limits.

Based on the aims and on the objectives, the user should pick the type of web hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the web hosting company that's going to provide it. There are several kinds of servers, depending on the configuration and the web hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server includes a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is manifested in the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small size and medium sized online portals, which do not need huge quantities of web space and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Hosting - they operate on the very same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much fewer users sharing the same web server. For that reason, each of them will receive a bigger share of the web hosting server's resources like RAM, disk storage space, traffic and CPU. Perfect for hosting bulky web pages that do not require root-level access.

VPS hosting are ideal for medium sized web portals, which do need root access to the server's config files. Typically, there are a handful of virtual private hosting server accounts hosted on the same machine. In spite of that, each of them is insulated from the other ones and has its own OS.

Dedicated Hosting - a completely dedicated web hosting server set up and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a big quantity of resources. It also includes complete root access, which makes it an excellent solution for any kind of online portal that necessitates a website hosting solution.

The sole question that's left is:

Which web hosting provider should I pick?

As stated above, there are not many web hosting providers providing warez web hosting solutions due to judicial predicaments. Such providers are being shut down virtually every month. For that reason, if you wish to launch such a service, you should do it on your own computer. The shared web hosting solution is the most famous type of hosting service. So, every web hosting distributor offers it. Not all of them, though, provide solutions such as virtual private web servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the smaller website hosting corporations do not have the means required for maintaining those solutions. You can quickly ID such web hosting companies by the sorts of solutions that they are supplying and by the manner in which they present them to the clientele. For example, some web hosts permit you to begin with a small sized web hosting plan and subsequently move to a bigger one, if you deem it obligatory to do so. This is extremely convenient, since you do not need to move websites between web hosting servers and there is no possibility of facing service interruptions due to all the problems that may crop up.
