As its name implies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting online content. There are different varieties and kinds of hosting, based on the mission and on the usage. Nevertheless, they all pertain to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made available through the World Wide Web. A host is actually a web hosting service that is connected to the Internet and has its own personal Internet Protocol address, which enables people to have access to it through the World Wide Web. The web hosting server's architecture and its resources are subject to the kind of hosting solution it's going to be utilized for.

What are the different types of hosting?

Depending on the goal, the professional web hosting service may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this form of hosting permits the customers to lodge their files on a specific hosting server. With the conventional file web hosting solution, the files that are stored may only be accessed by the user that's availing of the service. This web hosting solution mainly refers to backups of computers , documents, personal files and even other hosting servers. This solution may also have given restrictions with regard to the server space and the root privileges. There may also be traffic quota limits, but that depends on the given web hosting provider.

Warez Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is quite similar to the previous hosting service type. Even so, unlike the file storage hosting solution, the warez hosting service is utilized for disseminating licensed work without the authorization of the patent possessor. To cut a long story short - it is connected with the prohibited transmission of files and materials. There are multiple ways for this to be accomplished, but the two principal approaches are - via plain Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via P2P connections. The first one involves either a particular site, or, most commonly, just a directory on a web hosting server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download proprietary content for free. The second approach involves a P2P connection, utilizing the so-called Torrent servers, through which users exchange files between each other. There are very few website hosting suppliers that allow that form of web hosting on their web servers, mainly due to all the judicial complications that it entails. Typically such web portals are hosted on private dedicated hosting servers that are registered by third-party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Web Hosting - this solution is applicable with both shared website hosting and dedicated hosting servers, depending on the user's wish. If you would like to build your very own personal SMTP electronic mail server, then you will require either a VPS or a dedicated web hosting server that provides the level of access needed to execute such an operation. For common email web hosting ends, however, you can use an average shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a solution that's very popular, since the website hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by two separate servers, usually owned by separate web hosts.

Shared Hosting - the most widespread and widely utilized hosting service as of today. It's used for hosting website files, whose sort is dependent on the Operating System the web hosting server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files need concrete web hosting server Operating Systems, or else they won't be exhibited accurately on the World Wide Web. This type of hosting may impose web storage space and traffic quota limits, server root access and central processing unit usage restrictions.

Depending on the aims and on the functions, the user should pick the type of server that he needs for his project, and, of course, the website hosting vendor that's going to furnish it. There are different types of web servers, depending on the specs and the web hosting solutions that they offer. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared web server offers a smaller quantity of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small scale and medium size sites, which do not require large quotas of server storage and traffic.

Semi-dedicated Servers - they operate on the same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much fewer customers hosted on the same web hosting server. Because of that, each of them will enjoy a larger quota of the web server's resources like RAM, server storage space, traffic and CPU. Ideal for hosting enormous web portals that do not require complete server root access.

VPS hosting are ideal for medium scale web pages, which do require root access to the web server's configuration files. Generally, there are several VPS web server accounts hosted on the same machine. Still, each of them is insulated from the others and has its own OS.

Dedicated Server - a fully dedicated hosting server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a great amount of resources. It also provides full root access, which renders it a perfect platform for any sort of website that requires a website hosting solution.

The only question that remains is:

Which website hosting firm should I settle on?

As mentioned, there are not many providers offering warez hosting services due to judicial problems. Such web hosting companies are being shut down almost every month. Because of that, if you wish to run such a service, you should do it on your very own computer. The shared website hosting service is the most widespread kind of web hosting service. Because of that, every website hosting company offers it. Not all of them, though, provide services such as VPS servers, Semi-dedicated Servers and dedicated servers. Most of the small sized website hosting distributors do not have the means needed for maintaining those solutions. You can easily ID such companies by the types of solutions that they are offering and by the manner in which they present them to the customers. For example, some hosting providers permit you to begin with a smaller web hosting account and afterwards move to a bigger one, if you deem it necessary to do so. This is quite suitable, since you do not need to relocate web portals between web hosting servers and there is no risk of experiencing service outages because of all the problems that may take place.
