As its name denotes, hosting is a service, which involves hosting web content. There are different varieties and types of web hosting, based on the goals and on the usage. However, they all refer to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the World Wide Web. A web host is in fact a web hosting service that is linked to the Internet and has its very own IP address, which enables users to have access to it via the Internet. The hosting server's architecture and its resources are subject to the type of hosting service it will be utilized for.

What are the different types of hosting?

Depending on the objective, the professional hosting solution may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of web hosting enables the customers to accommodate their files on a specific hosting server. With the regular file hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the individual that's availing of the service. This web hosting solution generally concerns backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other web servers. This service may also include given limitations in terms of the disk storage space and the root access. There may also be traffic limits, but that depends on the actual web host.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting solution is resembling the previous hosting service form. Still, unlike the file web hosting service, the warez web hosting service is utilized for disseminating copyrighted work without the approval of the license possessor. In brief - it appertains to the forbidden transmission of files and documents. There are many approaches for this to be carried out, but the two essential methods are - via plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via P2P connections. The first method entails either a given web portal, or, most often, simply a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thereby download licensed documents free of cost. The second way involves a peer-to-peer connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent web servers, via which people exchange files between each other. There aren't many hosting providers that allow such type of hosting on their hosting servers, mostly owing to all the judicial predicaments that it involves. Usually such web sites are hosted on personal dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by third-party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Web Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared website hosting and dedicated servers, based on the customer's desire. If you wish to run your very own private SMTP server, then you will need either a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the level of access required to accomplish such a procedure. For ordinary e-mail web hosting ends, though, you can avail of a conventional shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's very famous, because the website hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two different web servers, usually belonging to separate web hosts.

Hosting - the most popular and immensely used hosting service nowadays. It's utilized for hosting website files, whose sort is determined by the Operating System the hosting server is using - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand concrete web hosting server OSs, otherwise they won't be displayed accurately on the Web. This type of hosting may involve data storage space and bandwidth quota limits, root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Based on the purpose and on the usage, the customer should select the type of web hosting server that he needs for his work, and, of course, the hosting supplier that's going to supply it. There are different kinds of servers, based on the configuration and the web hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared website hosting server offers a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, reflects on the cost of the service. It can be utilized for hosting small size and middle size sites, which do not need large amounts of storage space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they perform on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Still, there are much less clients accommodated on the same web server. Therefore, each of them will receive a larger share of the hosting server's resources like RAM, data storage space, bandwidth and CPU. Perfect for hosting popular web sites that do not require full server root privileges.

VPS are perfect for middle sized online portals, which do demand root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files. Usually, there are a number of VPS web hosting server accounts placed on the same physical machine. Nevertheless, each of them is isolated from the other ones and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a completely dedicated server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a big amount of system resources. It also includes full root-level access, which makes it an ideal solution for any kind of online portal that needs a web hosting service.

The sole question that's left is:

Which website hosting corporation should I pick?

As mentioned, there aren't many hosting companies providing warez web hosting services because of legal complications. Such web hosting companies are being shut down almost every month. Therefore, if you desire to create such a service, you should do it on your very own PC. The shared hosting service is the most popular type of web hosting service. Hence, each web hosting distributor provides it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as virtual private hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web hosting servers. Most of the small scale website hosting companies do not have the resources required for offering those services. You can quickly identify such web hosts by the kinds of solutions that they are making available and by the way that they introduce them to the customers. For instance, some web hosts allow you to commence with a smaller web hosting plan and afterwards shift to a bigger one, if you consider it necessary to do so. This is extremely suitable, because you do not have to move web pages between hosting servers and there is no danger of facing service outages because of all the problems that may arise.

We, at Pak Web Service provide all sorts of solutions and have the adequate server resources and staff to ensure that their clients will not stumble upon any complications when swapping services, which is what a top hosting corporation is actually all about.
