What In Fact is Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is a kind of Internet service that permits individuals and corporations to make their websites accessible online. Hosting providers are firms that offer disk drive space on a web hosting server placed in a datacenter and ensure continuous Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The World Wide Web has become an indispensable staple in every individual's daily routine. It offers you the possibility to earn extra money, but can also be a chief source of income. In order to embed adverts on your site or to advertise a product that you sell, you always need a hosting service, which will guarantee that your site is safe and constantly accessible. But how do you find one that is modestly priced and yet dependable enough?

The solution web hosting suppliers have introduced is named shared hosting. With the shared hosting solution, a lot of shared web hosting account holders are hosted on the very same web hosting server. There are harsh restrictions on the system resources that each shared web hosting account can actually resort to, thus ensuring that they do not meddle with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by just one customer. The shared solution permits shared hosting corporations to offer their customers competitive prices. It usually includes intuitive Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at GumnutHost provide, and lets everyone manage their web portals without bothering about server setup and maintenance tasks, which are entirely handled by the hosting distributor.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other private virtual web hosting server clients, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated web server solution, and is a very suitable solution for anyone who would like to make, for example, a live streaming web site or a community portal. The fact that you need to cope with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a big asset if you really need to implement certain server configuration modifications - something that would be inconceivable on a shared web hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in the majority of situations much more high-priced than shared web hosting or VPS server web hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated web server then? The answer is quite simple. If your company has a heavy resource-consuming online portal, or simply has very specific web server setup and security requirements, the most relevant option would be a dedicated web server that you or your server admins can administer directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no importance. You receive root access and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and interfering with your websites.
