What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is a type of service which enables profit or nonprofit organizations, as well as individuals to be able to post a web page or website to the Internet. In order to be able to view a webpage or a website on the Internet, a hosting company is required so as to offer the services and the technologies needed for the website to be viewed. Websites are stored on servers, which are special computers that run an operating system where web server software’s can be installed and executed. They are known as virtual private servers and they should be connected to the Internet. This enables any Internet user to be able to access any website via typing the website address into the browser. Many large organizations use a cloud computing services to host their websites. Cloud computing involves hosting websites on virtual private servers such that they can be accessed online from any location.
Cloud computing has greatly contributed towards managed hosting, whereby it makes the websites available as a service. In managed hosting, one gets what he needs and pays for what he or she uses. When planning what is required to host a website, factors such as cost and performance of the website are considered. This makes one to choose from any of the following method either a shared hosting where many websites are stored in a single server or a dedicated server where only one website is hosted on a single server. Each hosting method comes with its merits and demerits.
In this form of hosting, it saves the cost as the services are cheap, but its performance is poor because it shares with other websites.
When it comes to dedicated hosting, a dedicated server is often expensive because the resources used by one website on a dedicated server will be costly. However, the performance of such servers is always better compared to shared hosting.
