You have a notion that you would like to convert into a web page? Your very first move should be to sustain your inspiration and find a place for your website on the web so that it will be constantly visible to the whole world.

Where should you host your site?

Because the number of web sites online has grown rapidly over the last several years, the need for website hosting services has also lead to the birth of innumerable shared hosting firms. These are firms that offer you hard drive space for your own web site on their web hosting servers.

Kinds of web hosting services

The ambit of web hosting services varies hugely, so do the needs of the web page proprietors. The most basic type of web hosting is the small-size file hosting solution, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a web-based user interface. A lot of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide this service free of charge. Personal website owners and corporations can also get website hosting services from different hosting suppliers. Personal website hosting services are typically either free, ad-subsidized, or affordably priced. Business website hosting services often are more expensive, but thanks to the great competition on the hosting market, a growing number of hosting companies, like us at PhilWebDev Domain and Business Hosting Solution, distribute business web hosting services at modest prices and with flexible invoicing periods.

Kinds of websites and their prerequisites

The charge-free website hosting solution is normally sufficient for personal web sites like portfolios or weblogs. A busier site, like an online community website or a corporate site, calls for a more powerful hosting solution that offers database support and application development platforms (including PHP). If you wish to launch an e-store, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) must be supported by the web hosting accounts provider of your choice. Now, SSL certificates are furnished by most hosting providers.

The hosting Control Panel

The web hosting accounts provider normally also provides a web hosting Control Panel interface for managing your files, email box accounts, mailbox aliases, domains, DNS records, and so on.

Service dependability

When choosing a hosting solutions provider, network uptime is a very essential criterion. The availability of a web site is calculated on a yearly basis by taking into account the time when the web site is publicly accessible and viewable online. Network and service uptime guarantees, therefore, should be vigilantly taken into account when signing up for a website hosting plan. You should re-examine the SLAs and the TOS of the hosting supplier of your choice in advance. Finding reviews from current clients is also a rather good move before you make up your mind to subscribe.

The shared hosting solution

The most famous and affordable type of web hosting service is the shared hosting solution. It offers 24/7/365 client support, which is an enormous benefit for clients who do not wish to deal with server maintenance procedures, but could also hamper users who wish to have more control over the web hosting server. For such clients, a virtual private servers or a dedicated servers would be more appropriate. Most popular apps and scripts work alright on a shared hosting web server. Furthermore, the shared web hosting solution is cheaper than other kinds of web hosting solutions, like the dedicated hosting, because the hosting accounts provider divides the shared hosting server among lots of clients. The shared web hosting solution usually includes system resource usage limitations that ensure that the different customers do not intervene with each other and that the shared web server remains stable.

Managing your shared website hosting account

Shared hosting packages usually include a web-based web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface, such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, etc. Most of the large-sized hosting service providers, again like us at PhilWebDev Domain and Business Hosting Solution, utilize their own personal custom-made web hosting Control Panel.

Web server maintenance

With the shared website hosting solution, the web hosting solutions provider is responsible for administering the web and email servers, for installing server software, security updates and patches, and for offering technical support to its clients. Most web servers are based on the Linux Operating System. The web host's admins are responsible for keeping the Operating System up to date, unless you have a dedicated hosting web server and full root privileges.
