Types of web hosting
Computer has made our life easier and internet added a revolutionary uses of it. Web hosting is a type of internet hosting service that permits individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the World Wide Web. Some companies known as web hosts that provide space on a server they own or lease for use by their clients as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web servers can be run by the internet hosting service. Many types of hosting are provided by the web hosts, such as free web hosting service, Shared web hosting service, Reseller web hosting, Virtual Private Server, Dedicated hosting service, managed hosting service etc. Here we will know about Shared web hosting service.
Resources of hosting server
In this hosting service someone’s website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds or thousands. Typically, a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU are shared by all domains. A reseller may host a shared website. The features can be quite extensive available with this type of service. You have already known that a shared web hosting service or virtual hosting service or derive host refers to a web hosting service where many websites reside on one web server connected to the Internet. Every website "sits" on its own partition, or section/place on the server to keep it separate from other sites. By this many people can share the overall cost of server maintenance which is the most economical option for hosting.
It’s a benefit for the user’s who do not want more deal with it but face a hindrance to provide power for those users who want more control. This kind of hosting is inappropriate for users who require extensive software development outside what the hosting provider supports. Dedicated server hosting and it usually has no usage limits and most hosting providers have extensive reliability features in place. Especially web-based control panel system, such as cPanel, Plesk, Ensim, DirectAdmin, InterWorx, H-Sphere etc are used by this hosting service but large companies use their own custom developed control panel.
cPanel or Control panel for hosting
However controversy can be caused by control panels and web interfaces, since web hosting companies sometimes sell the right to use their control panel system to others This hosting service or the server are based on Linux operating system and LAMP (software bundle), which we can found from low cost open software source. Many servers are Microsoft Windows-based or FreeBSD-based provided by provider. Plesk and Ensim control panels can be found in that operating system.
Name based and IP based hosting
The implementation of this hosting service can be accomplished by two ways: name-based and IP-based. IP means internet protocol but this IP defines a number through which each and every server and clients may be defined. In named based service virtual hosts serve multiple hostnames on a single machine with a single IP address and in IP-based virtual hosting each virtual host has a different IP address. Whatever we have some disadvantage of this hosting that is Name-based virtual hosts do not properly support secure websites (HTTPS).
