Hosting Description

Hosting is a type of online service that enables persons and firms to make their web sites visible on the World Wide Web. Hosting service providers are firms that offer disk drive storage space on a server housed in a datacenter facility and ensure constant Internet access.

Where do you start?

The Internet has become a key staple in everyone's daily agenda. It offers you the option to make money on the side, but can also be a main source of income. In order to embed advertisements on your website or to popularize a product that you sell, you always need a hosting service, which will make sure that your web page is safe and continually available. But how do you find one that is reasonably priced and yet reliable enough?

The solution web hosting suppliers have brought forth is named shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, plenty of shared hosting accounts are hosted on one and the same server. There are austere limits on the resources that each web hosting account can actually resort to, thus making sure that they do not meddle with each other. The shared solution offers acceptable performance and costs less than, let's say, a dedicated hosting server, which is utilized by only one user. The shared web hosting solution permits hosting distributors to offer their customers competitive prices. It typically includes user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Kal Mass Media Hosting provide, and lets everybody manage their sites without bothering about server configuration and maintenance procedures, which are handled solely by the hosting accounts provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other private virtual hosting server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the resources. The VPS server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated web hosting solution, and is a perfect option for anyone who desires to host, for example, an audio or video streaming website or a community web portal. The fact that you need to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a big advantage if you indeed need to implement some server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most instances much more high-priced than shared or VPS web hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated web server then? The reply is quite simple. If your company has a high resource-consuming web page, or simply has very exact web server architecture and security requirements, the proper option is a dedicated web hosting server that you or your techs can manage directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and stability, the bigger price is of no concern. You obtain complete server root access and can utilize 100 percent of the web server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your sites.
