WHAT IS HOSTING?
In our world of Information Technology, hosting is a very broad term. So, let’s cut to the chase. Hosting is the home for storing all of your things. Sometimes you need to store things you can touch which may include servers, routers, firewalls and more. But mostly, things you cannot touch such as HTML and CSS files, documents, video and image files.
TYPE OF HOSTING
- Shared Hosting
- VPS Hosting
- Dedicated Server Hosting
- Colocation Hosting
It’s sometimes called website hosting. Typically, the most affordable on the planet. Think of it as you are paying for a membership to the gym. You share rented server space and also share the resources on the specific server with everyone.
Shared hosting not enough? Virtual Private Server hosting maybe next choice. You get your own individual server for your site. The server resources are generally shared but you have more control over it. There are usually more options such as security, tuning and more.
DEDICATED SERVER HOSTING
If you are a control freak, this is your kingdom to rule. You get your own isolated individual server for your site and files. The server resources are totally in your control. This type of hosting is for high traffic web sites and much more expensive.
You rent space, electrical power and bandwidth for equipment that you OWN in a secure, climate-controlled computer room AKA a data center. Although it’s the most expensive type of hosting, typically it can help reduce pricey server room expenditures required for many companies and meet regulatory compliance.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
There was time way back, when we used phone books to find the phone number and name of a business we wanted to buy something from. Well, now it’s the Internet.
If you want to sell your product, create a blog, have a digital discussion forum locally, regionally and/or globally you need hosting. Having your own hosting provides you with customization, control and scalability over your website and presence online.
