Description of Web Hosting

If you have made a decision to launch your very own personal web site, but are not very certain about what a web site is and are not familiar with the expression "web hosting", this article is devoted to explaining these notions in simple language.

What precisely is a website?

A website is a combination of webpages assembled in a systematic fashion. It has a special web site address, also known as a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). A site may include only one webpage and sometimes may even include as many as one thousand web pages.

What is a hosting server?

A hosting server permits you to upload your web site onto it. In some cases, there might be even 1000's of websites on one single web hosting server. The web hosting server essentially is a computer with specific hardware, which is situated in a data center facility with special cooling systems, whose task is to safeguard the seamless functioning of the server and all the sites hosted on it.

To summarize, a web hosting server will be really a launching pad when the time arrives for you to launch your website. It could be any kind of site - a business site having multiple webpages, or a site, which consists of just several pages and which you have created simply for your comrades and relatives.

You've reached a decision about what your website will be, now what?

As soon as you have made a decision about what kind of website you would like to set up, the next step is to discover what kind of web hosting service you must pick for your web venture. Basically, there are two sorts of web hosting services - free-of-charge website hosting services and paid website hosting services. The charge-free website hosting solution is commonly utilized by customers that do not possess a business web site.

Strong and weak sides of the free-of-charge website hosting solution

You will not obtain plenty of options with a free web hosting plan. Features such as traffic, RAM memory and hosting server hard disk storage space are limited and inadequate for an elaborate Internet shop or a business site, or even for a web site with lots of graphics. In addition, there are lots of banner adverts placed on your website by the hosting supplier. These adverts take up a lot of space on your website and are extremely frustrating.

Shared web hosting

The professional paid shared web hosting services are more dependable and offer plenty of powerful features aside from the high-powered hosting server that will accommodate your web site and its content. Still, it is essential to find out which features your site needs prior to purchasing your web hosting package. You should not rush and end up investing cash in something that your site does not demand.

Pick your web hosting services provider

It is not difficult to find a web host. You have to simply conduct an online survey in order to find a web hosting company that answers your site's demands. Before you make your actual choice, have a peek at the specs of the plans provided by the hosting distributors that have got your interest. We, for instance, are among the best web hosting service providers on the marketplace nowadays. The extensive array of services and our prices are what renders us an enticing choice. Nevertheless, you must verify what type of hosting service you require and if the price matches your allowance. Furthermore, you must always remember to take a look at the hosting service provider's ToS before opening an account to ensure that your web site is not abusing them.

Opening a website hosting account

As soon as you have found out what features are best for your web site, the next step is to sign up for an account with the hosting services provider of your choice. You will obtain all the essential tools for administering your web site files and databases. With us, for example, you will receive a hosting Control Panel, which is comprised of domain, website, database and email box account management sections. You log in the web hosting Control Panel using a unique username and password, which gives you secure access to the part of the web hosting server where your website will be hosted.

Uploading your web site

You can either upload your web site through an FTP software program or, as is with most web hosting vendors, via a web-based tool that is integrated within the web hosting Control Panel. With us, the File Manager is quite easy to use and offers features comparable to those found in Windows Explorer, which renders file management exceptionally easy. We offer additionally a web site builder and a PHP-powered script installer, which you can use to set up your web site if you have no programming expertise and are taking your very first steps in web design. The web-based web site building tool, called SiteStudio, will also spare you the time and effort of making a website on your PC and then uploading it via an FTP client or the File Manager interface.
