VPS web hosting is an independent server that acts as the main server of a website. It runs in its own software making it apart from virtual hosting itself. In virtual hosting, aspects of the website settings are shared like the email configuration. Other resources and applications are also being shared so the bad thing with virtual hosting is when one of the hosted website has trouble, the other shared websites will be affected. This is what makes VPS special to website owners.

Most businesses now have their own website. Through this, they gain more exposure to their target markets. Through their websites, customers and target market alike would have a bird’s eye view on the company’s background and reliability as well. Websites also become an interactive zone between the business owner and the customers. When the website is active, it is advised to have a virtual private server.

By means of a VPS technology, website owners have the ability to control their website. Since it is an independent server, their website will have its own IP address and they have power over the pattern or configuration of their email servers, installation of software and memory.

It is a server that can stand on its own. This is very advantageous to businesses with active websites. A website run by a VPS technology will not have to worry a bit when other server-shared websites are having trouble. The trouble will not be a series of events rather it is an independent event for the website concerned. The VPS can also be rebooted on its own and the applications and resources on the website will not be affected.
So far the best characteristic of a VPS web hosting is having the ability to manipulate the website. That includes installing and running the website owner’s chosen programs and applications. It is also a very integrated and safe choice when it comes to web hosting.

Is Free Web Hosting Recommended?

Posted by hecto on under Web Hosting | Be the First to Comment

There is a budget web hosting, but is there really a free one? Since a lot of people are getting more thrifty now a days, we cannot blame them from searching the web and keying in “free web hosting.” Yes, there is such a thing but most of them are not actually free. As you go through the application process you will notice that it will actually cost you more since they would be asking for a higher price in some services like the domain name. And since it is free, these web hosts will sometimes be not offering you the same quality features as that of the paid ones.

In due time, you will also find out that it will give you hassle by adding popup banners to your websites or other advertisements. Why is this so? Because this is how they make money. Sometimes these banners or advertisements are just displayed in your web site screen and they think that one day you might actually get attracted and click them. This is true especially to the visitors of your web site. The bad thing is instead of them concentrating on the contents of your site, they get distracted by these popups and advertisements and it is not impossible for some to click them. This is how they attract people. And what would you do? Contact them and ask for an upgrade where there will be no popups or unauthorized ads showing up in your website. That’s the catch. You will have to pay them for the upgrade.

Free web hosts are not always reliable. Not always, because there are really a few good free web hosting plans. The advertisements that pop up into your web site screen will inevitably cause spam in the long run. And what happens if your site is affected with spam? There will be server disruptions that may cause website downtime.

There are some websites that provide tips on how to get the reliable free web hosting plans. Anyone can access them and follow the rules. But if you want reliability and security, it is still best to opt for the paid ones.

Web hosting makes it possible for people to access websites. By means of it, people are given the chance to explore the websites they are connecting to. But the end users are not pretty aware of the kinds of web hosting and the differences of it.

There are actually two kinds of web hosting. There is the dedicated web hosting and another one is the shared web hosting. It is imperative to know the difference between the two especially for companies who are planning to have their own websites.

Dedicated hosting is run by a dedicated server. Meaning, a company is paying for a host to have a sole access to the server. They are renting the server so that no other entities can use it. They can be able to host several websites with much speed since they are the only ones using the bandwidth (which is offered by the web host plan). In dedicated hosting, the advantage of a high volume of usage is at the hands of the owners. Because of this feature, it is just vital to note that the price for a dedicated web server is much more expensive.

On one hand, shared web hosting does not limit the hosting of several websites to only one user. Actually, it allows several users to host several websites without renting a server. It is not also costly compared to the dedicated web hosting.

Another difference is the usage of the website. If the users need faster downloading and uploading features, it is best to have the dedicated server. Some newbie and business owners prefer the use of the shared web hosting. For them, the features are just enough to meet their business needs as they would not immediately require a more complex and expensive web hosting service.

To know which kind of web hosting service to choose, it is recommended to consult and get the opinion of those who are already using the service. Know their ups and downs with the current service they have and from there you can journey to choosing your own web host service.

Unlimited Space Web Hosting – Do These Exist in Reality?

Posted by hecto on under Web Hosting | Be the First to Comment

Have you ever thought of unlimited web hosting? Today, there are so many different types of web hosting providers. In fact, these web hosting providers may range from the absolutely free ones up to those which are paid. However, with these types of web hosting providers, you will simply notice a particular difference: the paid web hosting provider offers more options than the ones that are free.

However, you have to think on this thing too: the cost for web space is a way too expensive so how can you ever think of any provider out there to offer users with unlimited web hosting spaces? The truth is that many of the big service providers today make use of the term “unlimited” to lure the unknowing customers.

Generally, customers or users simply look for web hosting services that come with lots of benefits and offers and one of these irresistible offers include the so-called “unlimited” web space. This might seem a little bit true because you will only realize this thing when you have already purchased the web hosting package – that the unlimited offer is only offered for 20 GB.
One of the sad truths is that most of the beginners in the web ownership arena can only make use of limited amount of space; they too are not really aware of the truth. This will in turn become a great thing for the big hosting providers because they will soon come out running with tons of bucks on their shoulders due to their fraudulent offers. Basically, offering false “unlimited space” that’ is the company’s discrete way of robbing you.

So before you avail a web hosting service and learned from the provider that you will get unlimited offers or space, you have to be careful as unlimited space web hosting is simply a delusion.

The business is doing great, you are blogging like a pro and you want to utilize the power of the internet to reach more people in the most effective way. It is high time to consider searching for a web host. To guide you with that, here are some valuable factors to consider.

First, look for the features of web hosting that you will surely need in the long run. Having enough disk space is essential in considering a web hosting company. Keep in mind that the minimum disk space should be 10GB. It should also offer a higher disk space for higher plans or better yet, look for a web host that can offer you unlimited disk space. You should always have the option to go higher since you are just starting. Remember that the busier the website, the higher disk space it would require.

Another feature to consider is the bandwidth. This bandwidth is also called data transfer. So if you want your downloading and uploading to be flawless and quick, consider a web host that offers a minimum of 100GB of bandwidth every month. Emails are also very important if you have your own domain. Better make sure that the web hosting company you are considering has included several email accounts in their plans. You should be able to have access to your webmail and pop3 email accounts.

Since the aim of every business is to get bigger, might as well consider a database that is not lesser than 1GB so you will not have problems when you decide to increase. Web hosting companies should also offer at least a free domain. Remember this will also give you a savings of up to $15 every year. An FTP access will also help you back up your files into your own computer memory just in case you would need it. So make sure that you will not be limited in using it once you have your own web host plan.

Since internet works 24/7, it is ideal to check on the availability of the customer service and technical support of the web hosting company you are choosing. In this case, you will not have to wait for another 24 hours before your inquiry or problem gets resolved. They should be available through different internet communication medium like email, phone or live chat.

Lastly, try to check in the internet for some recommendations on the best web hosting companies. There is a lot who promises the world but only few are true to their words so better check for the reviews and comments before paying off for a host.
