What Is Web Hosting and What Are the Differences

Web Hosting Is Storing Files On The Web

What is web hosting?

Whether you are building a website or sending emails, you will be creating computer files. These files need be stored in and processed by a server so that everyone can access your website and you can send/receive emails. This is called hosting.

A server is a special computer, similar to your computer, but with much more capacity and is normally built very specifically for hosting websites and emails. Anything related to protecting and taking care the server, its software, security, support, bandwidth, speed and so much more, is what we do better! Our promise is to take care of everything for you so you can concentrate on your business. Take a peek at our hosting packages.

Web Hosting is the service providing space on the internet for websites.

When you make a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

Types of Web Hosting

As technology has progressed different types of web hosting have appeared to meet the different needs of websites and customers. We provide the following hosting types:

Cloud Hosting

Cloud hosting is essentially a meeting place half way between shared hosting and dedicated hosting, yet has some pretty cool advantages. Cloud customers still share the physical server hardware with other cloud customers, but special virtualization technology partitions the server so that each partition has its own dedicated resources and can be configured almost like a full dedicated server.

This typically offers the following advantages and disadvantages:

Dedicated Hosting

Dedicated server is the meat of hosting. Just like it sounds, you get your own server and all its resources, dedicated to you and for your use only, no one else. Dedicated hosting typically offers the following advantages and disadvantages.
