As its name suggests, shared hosting is a solution, which entails hosting online content. There are different forms and types of web hosting, depending on the mission and on the usage. Nonetheless, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a web hosting service that is linked to the Web and has its very own Internet Protocol address, which permits people to gain access to it via the Web. The web server's configuration and its limitations depend on the sort of hosting service it's going to be used for.

What are the different types of hosting?

Depending on the usage, the business hosting service may be:

File Hosting - this form of web hosting permits the customers to lodge their files on a specific server. With the normal file storage hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This web hosting solution generally is related to backups of personal computers , docs, personal files and even other servers. This solution may also have certain limitations when it comes to the storage space and the root access. There may also be bandwidth limits, but that is dependent on the particular hosting provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is quite similar to the previous hosting service type. Still, unlike the file storage web hosting service, the warez web hosting service is used for transmitting proprietary content without being given the green light by the copyright possessor. In short - it refers to the illicit circulation of files and docs. There are numerous methods for this to be completed, but the 2 essential approaches are - through simple HTTP downloading and through P2P connections. The first approach entails either a specific web page, or, most often, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download licensed files free of cost. The second way entails a peer-to-peer connection, using the so-called Torrent servers, through which people transfer files between each other. There are not many hosting distributors that permit such type of hosting on their web hosting servers, mostly due to all the legal entanglements that it presupposes. Typically such websites are hosted on private dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Email Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, based on the customer's desire. If you desire to have your very own personal SMTP electronic mail server, then you will require either a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server that provides the level of access needed to perform such a procedure. For traditional electronic mail web hosting ends, however, you can set up a normal shared website hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's very used, because the web hosting and the e-mail hosting services are being served by two different servers, usually owned by different providers.

Shared Hosting - the most famous and extensively used hosting service now. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose kind is dependent on the OS the hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different kinds of files necessitate specific web server OSs, otherwise they won't be exhibited correctly on the Web. This sort of hosting may contain web storage space and bandwidth limits, root access and CPU usage restrictions.

Depending on the goals and on the functions, the user should select the kind of server that he demands for his project, and, of course, the web hosting distributor that's going to supply it. There are various kinds of web servers, depending on the configuration and the web hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Hosting Server - a shared hosting server supplies a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, is reflected on the price of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small sized and middle size online portals, which do not need large quantities of data storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they are based on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much fewer clients accommodated on the same web hosting server. Therefore, each of them will obtain a bigger share of the web server's resources like RAM, disk storage, web traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting heavy web sites that do not require full server root privileges.

Virtual private servers are excellent for middle size sites, which do demand root access to the server's config files. Generally, there are several VPS server web hosting accounts placed on the same machine. However, each of them is insulated from the others and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated server set up and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a mammoth amount of resources. It also gives full server root access, which renders it the optimal environment for any kind of web site that requires a hosting solution.

The only question that's left is:

Which web hosting company should I pick?

As mentioned above, there are not many hosts offering warez web hosting services because of judicial problems. Such web hosting companies are being closed down practically every month. For that reason, if you desire to launch such a service, you should do it on your own PC. The shared website hosting service is the most popular type of hosting service. Therefore, each and every web hosting supplier offers it. Not all of them, however, provide services such as virtual servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated hosting servers. Most of the small scale hosting firms do not have the resources demanded for offering those solutions. You can easily recognize such web hosting companies by the sorts of services that they are supplying and by the manner in which they introduce them to the clients. For instance, some hosts allow you to start with a small scale website hosting package and subsequently move to a bigger one, if you consider it necessary to do so. This is very convenient, since you do not have to transfer sites between hosting servers and there is no possibility of facing downtime because of all the problems that may show up.

We, at Acken Host provide all sorts of solutions and have the adequate server resources and staff to guarantee that their clients will not suffer any complications when swapping services, which is what a top hosting company is actually all about.
