What Exactly is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is a kind of Internet service that enables persons and corporations to make their websites available on the web. Web hosting service providers are firms that offer content storage space on a web server placed in a data center and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connection.

Where do you start?

The Internet is an essential fragment of every person's daily life. It gives you the opportunity to earn extra money, but can also be a main source of income. In order to place commercials on your website or to promote a product or a service that you sell, you always require a hosting service, which will guarantee that your online portal is protected and always up and running. But how do you discover one that is affordably priced and yet dependable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution hosting firms have introduced is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, multiple customers are hosted on one and the same web hosting server. There are strict limitations on the resources that each shared web hosting account can in fact use, thus making certain that they do not meddle with each other. The shared solution offers satisfactory performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is used by just one user. The shared solution permits shared hosting vendors to offer their customers modest prices. It ordinarily comes with user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Sardap Web Hosting provide, and enables everyone to administer their websites without worrying about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are taken care of solely by the hosting firm.

Virtual private servers hosting

With the virtual private servers hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other virtual web hosting server clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS web hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more affordably priced shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who wishes to run, for example, a live streaming site or a community site. The fact that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a great plus if you really need to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of situations much more expensive than shared hosting or private virtual server web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated hosting web server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your firm has a high resource-absorbing web site, or just has very exact web server setup and safety requirements, the most reasonable choice is a dedicated hosting server that you or your techs can manage directly. For someone who is ready to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is not a concern. You get complete root-level access and can use 100% of the dedicated web server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and messing with your websites.
