Shared hosting is a type of Internet service that allows persons and firms to render their web portals reachable on the Internet. Web hosting providers are firms that offer data storage space on a server stored in a datacenter facility and guarantee continuous service uptime.

Where do you begin?

The Internet is an integral staple in every person's everyday agenda. It offers you the possibility to gain some cash on the side, but can also be a chief source of revenue. In order to put advertisements on your web site or to popularize a product that you sell, you always require a hosting solution, which will guarantee that your site is safe and always visible. But how do you discover one that is cheap and yet reliable enough?

The shared hosting platform

The solution web hosting providers have come up with is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, plenty of shared web hosting accounts are accommodated on one and the very same server. There are stringent restrictions on the resources that each user account can actually avail of, thus guaranteeing that they do not intervene with each other. The shared web hosting solution offers satisfactory performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated web hosting server, which is utilized by just one single person. The shared web hosting solution enables shared hosting firms to offer their clients affordable prices. It usually includes user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at 82Hosting provide, and enables everyone to manage their online portals without bothering about server configuration and maintenance tasks, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting distributor.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other private virtual server hosting users, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated server hosting solution, and is a very good solution for anyone who would like to build, for example, an audio or video streaming site or a community web portal. The circumstance that you have to cope with the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be an enormous plus if you indeed have to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web hosting server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most instances much more high-priced than shared hosting or virtual server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone want to use a dedicated server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a busy online portal, or just has very specific server architecture and security requirements, the most reasonable option would be a dedicated web hosting server that you or your technicians can manage directly. For somebody who is inclined to invest in security and dependability, the bigger price is not a problem. You are granted full server root access and can use 100 percent of the server's system resources without anyone else utilizing these resources and interfering with your sites.
