Web hosting is a type of Internet service that permits individuals and companies to render their websites visible on the World Wide Web. Hosting service providers are companies that offer disk drive storage space on a web hosting server held in a datacenter facility and guarantee uninterrupted Internet connectivity.

Where do you start?

The Internet has become an indispensable factor in everybody's everyday agenda. It offers you the chance to earn some cash on the side, but can also be a major source of revenue. In order to put commercials on your site or to promote a commodity that you offer, you always need a hosting service, which will guarantee that your website is safe and continually accessible. But how do you find one that is cheap and yet trustworthy enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution web hosting firms have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, many customers are hosted on one and the same hosting server. There are stringent limitations on the system resources that each account can actually resort to, thus making sure that they do not intervene with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers good performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated server, which is utilized by just one single customer. The shared hosting solution permits web hosting companies to offer their clients cheap prices. It ordinarily includes easy-to-use hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at My Media Anywhere, LLC provide, and allows everybody to manage their web pages without bothering about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting corporation.

VPS web hosting

With the VPS web hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other private virtual web server customers, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The virtual private hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated server solution, and is a very suitable solution for anyone who would like to establish, for instance, a live streaming web site or a social networking site. The circumstance that you have to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a huge upside if you indeed have to make certain server configuration changes - something that would be inconceivable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most circumstances much more high-priced than shared or Virtual Private Server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone use a dedicated hosting web server then? The reply is quite simple. If your firm has a content-heavy web site, or simply has very special server architecture and security requirements, the wisest choice is a dedicated hosting server that you or your admins can manage directly. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and reliability, the higher price is not an issue. You get full root access and can use 100% of the dedicated hosting server's system resources without anyone else availing of these resources and messing with your websites.
