Shared Hosting Description

Running your own private site is obligatory in modern-day society. The introduction of the World Wide Web in our everyday lives denotes that, in order for somebody to get seen, or to get his voice heard, one has to construct a web page and post it online. In order to fulfill that, you virtually demand two things - a web site and a hosting service. Prior to making a web page, however, it's essential to understand that there are distinct kinds of website hosting services and that not all web sites can function with a randomly picked shared hosting. In order to explain this better, let's begin with the central issue:

What is Website Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise known as 'web hosting', is a designation that refers to the web server itself, or the hosting firm that runs the web hosting server. A hosting server is a computer that's connected to the web and that's set up to support PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which enables the clients to upload their website files on the hosting server and to make them visible on the World Wide Web. There are 2 major kinds of web hosting servers, determined by the Operating System of the hosting server - Windows and Linux. The 2 Operating Systems are very dissimilar and, in most instances, not at all consistent with one another. So, prior to picking the relevant service, one should first verify what type of web hosting server is needed for their website.

If you haven't made the site so far, then let's have a more comprehensive glimpse at the distinction between the two varieties and at what their advantages are.

What service should you opt for - Windows or Linux?

As stated, there are frameworks, which are only compatible with a given Operating System. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not function on a Linux server. So, if you would like to develop your website using any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows service. Windows, however, is not an open-source platform, which denotes that it offers limited possibilities as far as server safety and privacy are concerned. Hence, Linux is favored by web server admins around the world and most hosting service providers utilize it on their servers. Utilizing Linux, the admin can configure the server in a thoroughly modifiable way, and if the web server is appropriately set up, it can ensure complete safety against computer hackers and malicious software. In addition, the customizability of Linux permits for greater optimization, which leads to better web site functioning. For that reason, if you are looking for supreme safety and web server operation, then you should set up your website in such a way that it operates with a Linux-based hosting server. This is not a problematic thing to accomplish, as the most famous Content Management Systems, also famous as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are fully compatible with Linux web servers and are popular all over the world for being one of the best software frameworks for designing and managing sites. Surely, this doesn't imply that each and every web hosting supplier that's utilizing Linux will have administrators who are capable to properly manage a Linux server. Selecting the proper web hosting corporation is very problematic today, since most of them do not possess the capacity to engage a professional, practiced web administrator. A Linux web hosting server that hasn't been correctly configured can be extremely hazardous to your website and personal information. Therefore, when choosing a hosting firm, it's invariably recommendable to settle on a well-established web hosting corporation that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to recognize the correct hosting service provider for my site?

These hosting service providers are easily detectable by the manner in which they are providing their website hosting plans. Experienced web hosting distributors offer custom-developed features, diverse free open-source PHP-powered scripts or apps. The most practiced, though, possess even their very own custom-built website hosting Control Panels developed especially for their platform. A Control Panel is a web-based graphical interface, via which the customer manages the entire web hosting service. Smaller web hosts use pre-developed website hosting Control Panels like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure utmost security and efficacy for their website hosting services, the leading hosting suppliers supply their customers with their own personal in-house built hosting Control Panels built by their own administrators. We, at 'JRiSpace WebHosting', don't merely provide our very own custom-devised Control Panel, but have also created a free-of-cost PHP-powered script installer, which allows our clients to easily activate any of the abovementioned Content Management applications. Features such as these reveal that we have the ability, the resources and the necessary experience to be entrusted with maintaining your personal details confidential and your website - reachable on the web.
