What is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is a sort of online service that allows individuals and companies to make their web portals discoverable on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are companies that offer data storage space on a web hosting server situated in a data center facility and ensure constant website accessibility.

Where do you begin?

The World Wide Web has become a crucial part of everyone's daily agenda. It offers you the possibility to make extra profit, but can also be a main source of income. In order to put commercials on your web site or to promote a product or a service that you offer, you always require a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your web portal is protected and constantly reachable. But how do you find one that is affordably priced and yet dependable enough?

The solution web hosting service providers have introduced is called shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, multiple customers are accommodated on the same hosting server. There are severe limitations on the system resources that each account can actually avail of, thus making sure that they do not interfere with each other. The shared solution offers good performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by just one individual. The shared web hosting solution permits shared hosting service providers to offer their clients affordable prices. It typically comes with user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at SSDD Hosting provide, and lets everybody manage their websites without bothering about server installation and maintenance procedures, which are taken care of solely by the hosting company.

Virtual private servers hosting

With the virtual private servers hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other virtual web hosting server clients, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the resources. The virtual web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting server solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who wants to make, for instance, an audio or video streaming website or a social network. The circumstance that you need to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a weakness, but this could also be a big asset if you indeed need to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most cases much more expensive than shared web hosting or private virtual server web hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated web hosting server then? The explanation is quite simple. If your firm has a busy web page, or simply has very exact server architecture and security requirements, the most relevant choice would be a dedicated web hosting server that you or your techs can administer directly. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is of no concern. You get full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your web sites.
