Web Hosting Description
Owning your very own private online portal is obligatory in modern-day society. The introduction of the World Wide Web in our daily lives suggests that, in order for somebody to become seen, or to make his voice heard, one has to create a site and take it online. In order to achieve that, you virtually require 2 things - a site and a hosting service. Before constructing a web site, however, it's essential to bear in mind that there are diverse kinds of web hosting services and that not all web sites can operate with a randomly selected web hosting. In order to illustrate this better, let's start with the prime theme:
What is Hosting?
Hosting, or otherwise known as 'web hosting', is a term that relates to the actual server, or the hosting company that possesses the web hosting server. A web server is a computer that's connected to the Internet and that's set up to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which allows the users to upload their files on the hosting server and to publish them on the Internet. There are 2 major varieties of web hosting servers, determined by the OS of the web server - Windows and Linux. The two Operating Systems are very dissimilar and, in the majority of instances, not at all consistent with each other. Thus, prior to picking the suitable solution, one should first ascertain what type of web server is required for their site.
If you haven't developed the website so far, then let us take a more comprehensive glimpse at the distinction between the 2 types and at what their benefits are.
What service should you opt for - Windows or Linux?
As pointed out, there are web application frameworks, which are only compatible with a particular OS. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not function on a Linux server. Therefore, if you would like to design your web site using any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows solution. Windows, however, is not open source-based, which means that it provides restricted opportunities when it comes to server safety and privacy. Hence, Linux is used by web server admins around the world and the majority of hosting corporations utilize it on their servers. Using Linux, the admin can configure the server in a fully modifiable way, and if the web hosting server is correctly set up, it can offer absolute security against computer hackers and malware. Moreover, the flexibility of Linux permits for better software optimization, which brings about better site functioning. Therefore, if you want utmost safety and server performance, then you should devise your web site in such a way that it performs with a Linux-based web hosting server. This is not a difficult thing to do, since the most widespread Content Management Systems, also popular as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are completely consistent with Linux servers and are known all over the Globe for being one of the best apps for devising and administering sites. Surely, this doesn't mean that every web hosting company that's utilizing Linux will have admins who are capable to properly manage a Linux server. Choosing the proper web hosting distributor is quite hard today, as the majority of them do not possess the capacity to engage an accomplished, experienced administrator. A Linux web server that hasn't been appropriately set up can be very risky to your web site and personal info. So, when picking a hosting vendor, it's always advisable to go with a bigger hosting firm that's been in business for at least a couple of years.
How to spot the appropriate service provider for my web site?
These web hosting companies are easily recognizable by the manner in which they are delivering their web hosting plans. Experienced web hosting corporations offer custom-developed functionality, various open-source PHP-based scripts or applications. The most practiced, though, have even their own custom-invented website hosting CPs created particularly for their platform. A Control Panel is an online-based dashboard, through which the client handles the entire web hosting service. Smaller companies utilize pre-developed CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness for their website hosting services, the leading hosting distributors furnish their customers with their very own in-house developed website hosting CPs made by their own admins. We, at 'Connektiva Web Hosting', don't merely provide our very own custom-designed Control Panel, but have also set up a free PHP-powered script installation tool, which permits our clients to effortlessly activate any of the aforementioned scripts. Features such as these are evidence that we have the capacity, the resources and the experience to be entrusted with maintaining your private details confidential and your website - available on the World Wide Web.
