As its name denotes, shared hosting is a service, which entails hosting web content. There are various forms and kinds of web hosting, based on the mission and on the functions. Nevertheless, they all involve hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the Internet. A web host is actually a web server that is linked to the World Wide Web and has its very own IP address, which enables people to have access to it via the World Wide Web. The server's architecture and its system resources are determined by the kind of hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the different forms of web hosting?

Depending on the purpose, the business website hosting solution may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of hosting enables the customers to host their files on a particular hosting server. With the standard file web hosting service, the files that are deposited may only be accessed by the user that's utilizing the service. This web hosting service normally involves backups of PCs , documents, private files and even other web hosting servers. This solution may also contain given restrictions in relation to the web storage and the root privileges. There may also be bandwidth restrictions, but that is dependent on the given hosting provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez hosting service is quite similar to the previous web hosting service type. However, in contrast with the file storage web hosting service, the warez web hosting service is utilized for propagating proprietary content without being given the okay to do so by the patent bearer. In short - it pertains to the illicit propagation of files and materials. There are a lot of ways for this to be fulfilled, but the two principal methods are - through plain HTTP downloading and via peer-to-peer connections. The first one involves either a given web page, or, most typically, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download licensed documents free of cost. The second method involves a P2P connection, availing of the so-called Torrent web servers, via which people exchange files between each other. There are not many web hosting corporations that permit such form of web hosting on their servers, chiefly due to all the judicial entanglements that it involves. Commonly such sites are hosted on personal dedicated web hosting servers that are registered by third-party enterprises either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Web Hosting - this service is applicable with both shared web hosting and dedicated servers, based on the customer's wish. If you want to have your own personal SMTP server, then you will require either a private virtual web server or a dedicated web hosting server that offers the level of access required to execute such an assignment. For routine email hosting purposes, however, you can use a standard shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain. This is not a service that's very famous, since the web hosting and the mail hosting services are being served by 2 different web servers, usually belonging to separate companies.

Shared Hosting - the most famous and universally used hosting service as of today. It's used for hosting website files, whose type is determined by the Operating System the web server is running - Linux or Windows. Different types of files require specific web hosting server Operating Systems, or else they won't be shown accurately on the World Wide Web. This form of web hosting may involve data space and web traffic quota limitations, server root access and central processing unit usage limits.

Depending on the purpose and on the usage, the user should pick the kind of server that he requires for his project, and, of course, the hosting firm that's going to supply it. There are various kinds of web hosting servers, depending on the specifications and the web hosting solutions that they provide. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared web server supplies a smaller amount of system resources, which, of course, is manifested in the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small and middle size web portals, which do not require vast quantities of web storage and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they operate on the same principle as the shared web servers. Even so, there are much less users sharing the same hosting server. That is why, each of them will receive a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, server storage, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting popular websites that do not require complete server root access.

Virtual private servers are perfect for medium size online portals, which do require root-level access to the web server's configuration files. Normally, there are a few VPS accounts accommodated on the same physical machine. Still, each of them is isolated from the other ones and runs its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated web hosting server configured and accessed by you and solely you. It ensures a large quantity of resources. It also includes root privileges, which renders it the optimal platform for any sort of web portal that needs a website hosting service.

The sole question that's left is:

Which website hosting company should I choose?

As already mentioned, there are not many hosts offering warez hosting services because of judicial problems. Such web hosts are being closed down virtually every month. Because of that, if you want to create such a service, you should do it on your own personal computer. The shared web hosting solution is the most widely spread type of hosting service. Because of that, each website hosting provider provides it. Not all of them, however, provide solutions such as virtual web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated web servers. Most of the small scale web hosting vendors do not have the means needed for maintaining those solutions. You can easily identify such web hosting companies by the kinds of solutions that they are making available and by the way that they introduce them to the customers. For instance, certain hosting providers allow you to begin with a low-end website hosting account and then upgrade to a more advanced one, if you find it mandatory to do so. This is extremely convenient, because you do not need to migrate web portals between servers and there is no possibility of facing service downtime because of all the complications that may crop up.
