Shared Hosting Description

You have a concept that you wish to turn into a site? Your first move should be to preserve your enthusiasm and find a place for your page on the Internet so that it will be constantly available for the whole world to see.

Where should you host your site?

Since the number of websites on the World Wide Web has increased rapidly during the last several years, the need for website hosting services has also lead to the emergence of innumerable shared hosting firms. These are companies that offer you disk drive space for your own site on their web servers.

Sorts of hosting services

The ambit of web hosting services varies immensely, so do the needs of the website proprietors. The most basic web hosting type is the small-size file hosting solution, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a web interface. Lots of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer this service free of cost. Personal website possessors and corporations can also obtain web hosting services from different hosting vendors. Personal website hosting services are usually either free, ad-financed, or cheap. Business website hosting services often cost more, but owing to the immense rivalry on the web hosting market, a growing number of web hosting providers, like us at Dimahost, offer business web hosting services at trimmed prices and with flexible invoicing intervals.

Sorts of sites and their prerequisites

The cost-free website hosting solution is generally sufficient for personal web pages such as portfolios or blogs. A more resource-consuming site, such as a social networking web site or a corporate page, calls for a more powerful web hosting platform that provides database support and application development platforms (including PHP). If you would like to create a web shop, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) must be supported by the hosting supplier of your choice. At present, SSL certificates are provided by most hosting suppliers.

The hosting Control Panel

The hosting packages provider normally also offers a Control Panel GUI for handling your web site files, e-mail accounts, email aliases, domain names, DNS records, and so on.

Service uptime

When picking a hosting provider, website availability is a very important criterion. The accessibility of a web site is assessed on a yearly basis by taking into account the time when the website is publicly accessible and reachable online. Network and service uptime guarantees, therefore, should be meticulously examined when signing up for a website hosting service. You should re-examine the SLAs and the ToS of the hosting vendor of your choosing in advance. Finding online reviews from current clients is also a rather wise move before you decide to subscribe.

The shared web hosting platform

The most famous and inexpensive type of web hosting service is the shared hosting solution. It includes 24-7 customer support, which is a great advantage for customers who do not wish to cope with server maintenance procedures, but could also impede users who want to have more control over the server. For such clients, a virtual private servers or a dedicated hosting would be more appropriate. Most standard applications and scripts work fine on a shared hosting server. In addition, the shared web hosting solution is less expensive than other types of hosting solutions, like the dedicated hosting, because the web hosting services provider divides the server among a lot of clients. The shared web hosting platform typically includes usage restrictions that ensure that the separate customers do not intervene with each other and that the shared hosting server remains stable.

Handling your shared hosting account

Shared web hosting plans usually include a web-based Control Panel, such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, etc. The majority of the big web hosting firms, again like us at Dimahost, make use of their own personal custom-designed web hosting Control Panel interface.

Web server maintenance

With the shared web hosting solution, the hosting services provider is responsible for administering the web and email servers, for installing server software, software updates and patches, and for providing technical support to its customers. The majority of web servers are based on the Linux Operating System. The web hosting supplier's sysadmins are in charge of keeping the Operating System up to date, unless you have a dedicated hosting server and complete root access.
