What Exactly is Shared Hosting?

If you have set up a web site and you want other persons to spot it, you must host your site on a publicly reachable web server.

Where to host your website?

Even though you can use your own personal computer as a server, it is a more conventional practice to let a hosting provider take care of your site. The chief reason for that is the greater reliability and the better visibility of your website, since hosting service providers have special hardware and apportion a much higher monthly traffic allowance, which guarantees the quicker access to your site from all over the world.

Shared hosting solutions

Select a shared hosting service, which permits you to register domains and to create e-mail box accounts. Lots of web shared hosting firms, like us at PhilWebDev Domain and Business Hosting Solution, offer a free domain name registration as a bonus if you sign up for a web hosting account.

Hosting your site on your own

Hosting your website on your own server is surely an option, but only if you have time and the necessary ability. There are certain issues that you need to consider, among them the hardware and software costs. To set up a "real", proper site, you will have to spend cash on some powerful server hardware, since you cannot rely on a low-priced personal computer to carry out the task. You will also require a permanent high-speed Internet connection without outages, which generally comes at a pretty steep price. If you are availing of licensed software for your site, you will have to invest money in the license as well. You may also need to deal with bugs and Trojan horses. You will need to keep your server running all the time in an environment where "everything could take place". If you do not have the required technical know-how, you will need to employ a sysadmin to handle these issues on your behalf, which will make the price of hosting your web site on your own even higher than that of a dedicated web server supplied by a web hosting distributor.

A dedicated web server provided by a hosting distributor

Renting a hosting server from a hosting solutions provider is a good option if you want to make a heavy resource-demanding website or a business portal that has very meticulous security requirements. The most important benefits of using a dedicated web hosting solution are the breakneck-speed Internet access, the uninterrupted power supply and the extremely powerful hardware. Some web hosting companies, again like us at PhilWebDev Domain and Business Hosting Solution, provide virtual private servers hosting and semi-dedicated server hosting services, which are based on extremely powerful physical servers that can be shared by several users. You can also expect them to provide effective server load balancing services and the necessary backup servers.

Safety and reliability

Hosting providers are specialized in delivering hosting solutions and because this is what they do to make a living, you can expect them to offer uninterrupted Internet access, the latest software updates and the best anti-virus software, as well as sysadmins available 24-7 to aid you in case of an emergency.

Choose your hosting accounts provider

What you have to take into account when picking your web hosting services provider is the stability of the offered services. Make certain that the hosting plans provider of your choosing provides a 24-hour support service. Do not put yourself in a position where you cannot resolve serious problems immediately because you have to wait till the next business day. Furthermore, if you select a shared web hosting plan, which features a 24/7/365 customer service, this signifies that there always will be system administrators available to solve any critical problems as soon as they crop up, which is a very advantageous thing.

Everyday data backups

Make certain that your hosting plans provider offers daily backups with the offered hosting services, otherwise you may lose some valuable data in case of a hardware crash or because you have erased something unwittingly. The availability of everyday data backups is usually mentioned in the hosting service provider's Terms of Service.

Bandwidth and web hosting server disk storage space

When choosing your web hosting solutions provider, pay special attention to the traffic quota limits. Make certain that you don't have to overpay for unanticipated high bandwidth volumes if your website becomes more popular. There are many web hosting companies that offer unmetered bandwidth nowadays, so the most reasonable step to take is to make certain that you have made the right choice before registering.

Content limitations

Give specific attention to the hosting vendor's content restrictions. If you wish to post images or to broadcast live video or audio, make sure that you can accomplish that. Additionally, most web hosting companies lay restrictions as far as utilizing their services for file hosting purposes is concerned, so if you upload too much content that is not related or directly linked to your website, your website hosting account could get deleted. Hence, reading the hosting service provider's Terms & Conditions, regardless of how time-swallowing and wearisome this might be, is very important.

Electronic mail capabilities

The majority of web hosting providers today also provide e-mail services with all their hosting plans. It is not a bad idea to verify if the hosting solutions provider of your choice offers such features too, so as to confirm that you'll get all the features that you require in exchange for your money.
