Hosting Description

Running your very own personal web page is a necessity in present-day society. The fusion of the World Wide Web in our everyday lives implies that, in order for someone to be seen, or to make his voice heard, one has to set up an online portal and take it online. In order to achieve that, you virtually need two things - a site and a hosting service. Prior to building a web portal, however, it's essential to understand that there are various types of website hosting services and that not all web sites can perform with a randomly picked hosting. In order to describe this better, let's start with the main subject:

What is Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise popular as 'web hosting', is an appellation that refers to the web hosting server itself, or the provider that offers the server. A web hosting server is a computer that's connected to the Internet and that's configured to use PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which enables the customers to upload their files on the hosting server and to publish them on the World Wide Web. There are two major varieties of web hosting servers, based on the Operating System of the web server - Windows and Linux. The 2 OSs are quite dissimilar and, in the majority of cases, not at all compatible with one another. That's why, before selecting the proper solution, one should first find out what kind of hosting server is required for their web page.

If you haven't created the web site so far, then let us take a more comprehensive glance at the difference between the two varieties and at what their benefits are.

What platform should you go with - Windows or Linux?

As pointed out, there are apps, which are only compatible with a given OS. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not operate on a Linux hosting server. Thus, if you consider to create your web site utilizing any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows service. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which signifies that it offers limited possibilities as far as server security and privacy are concerned. For this reason, Linux is used by server admins worldwide and most hosting providers use it on their web servers. Using Linux, the admin can set up the web server in a completely modifiable manner, and if the hosting server is appropriately set up, it can guarantee total security against computer hackers and malware. Additionally, the flexibility of Linux permits for greater software optimization, which leads to better website functioning. Thus, if you are looking for maximum protection and web server operation, then you should make your web site in such a manner that it operates with a Linux-driven server. This is not difficult to do, as the most famous Content Management Systems, also famous as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully consistent with Linux servers and are famous all over the Globe for being one of the best software apps for developing and managing websites. Sure enough, this doesn't imply that each web hosting corporation that's utilizing Linux will have administrators who are able to appropriately run a Linux web hosting server. Selecting the correct hosting firm is very difficult these days, because the majority of them do not possess the capability to hire an expert, trained web admin. A Linux hosting server that hasn't been appropriately set up can be very dangerous to your site and private info. For that reason, when selecting a host, it's invariably advisable to select a bigger company that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to recognize the proper web hosting service provider for my website?

These hosting corporations are easily recognizable by the way in which they are delivering their website hosting packages. Practiced hosting corporations offer custom-built functionality, various free scripts or web application frameworks. The most experienced, however, possess even their very own personal custom-built website hosting CPs devised particularly for their system. A hosting CP is a web-based interface, via which the user manages the entire web hosting service. Smaller hosting corporations avail of ready-to-use website hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, though, to guarantee maximum security and performance for their website hosting services, the biggest companies furnish their clients with their own in-house developed hosting CPs created by their own administrators. We, at 'K-Hosting Services', don't simply offer our own custom-created Control Panel, but have also developed a free-of-charge PHP-driven script installer, which permits our customers to easily install any of the aforementioned web content management software applications. Specs like these testify that we have the ability, the resources and the necessary experience to be entrusted with retaining your personal information confidential and your website - visible on the World Wide Web.
