As its name signifies, website hosting is a solution, which involves hosting web content. There are different varieties and kinds of web hosting, depending on the goals and on the objectives. Even so, they all pertain to hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible through the World Wide Web. A web host is actually a server that is connected to the Internet and has its very own Internet Protocol address, which permits people to gain access to it via the World Wide Web. The hosting server's architecture and its resources are determined by the type of web hosting service it's going to be utilized for.

What are the various forms of web hosting?

Depending on the function, the hosting service may be:

File Web Hosting - this type of hosting enables the users to lodge their files on a specific hosting server. With the regular file web hosting service, the files that are accommodated may only be accessed by the user that's using the service. This web hosting solution normally is associated with backups of PCs , docs, private files and even other hosting servers. This solution may also involve certain limitations with regard to the disk storage space and the root privileges. There may also be bandwidth limits, but that depends on the given web hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is comparable with the previous hosting service form. However, in contrast with the file storage hosting solution, the warez hosting solution is utilized for transmitting copyrighted materials without being given the go-ahead by the licence bearer. In brief - it appertains to the prohibited dissemination of files and materials. There are a lot of methods for this to be realized, but the two principal ways are - via simple Hypertext Transfer Protocol downloading and via P2P connections. The first approach entails either a specific web portal, or, most commonly, simply a directory on a web server that's been made available for everyone to access it and thereby download patented materials for free. The second method entails a P2P connection, using the so-called Torrent web servers, through which users transfer files between each other. There are very few web hosting corporations that allow such form of hosting on their hosting servers, chiefly due to all the legal predicaments that it involves. Commonly such websites are hosted on personal dedicated web servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Mail Web Hosting - this service is relevant with both shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, based on the client's intention. If you wish to launch your own personal SMTP electronic mail server, then you will need either a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated web server that offers the level of access needed to carry out such a procedure. For regular mail hosting purposes, though, you can open an ordinary shared web hosting account, to which you can point the MX records of your domain name. This is not a service that's very popular, because the web hosting and the electronic mail hosting services are being served by 2 different servers, often belonging to different companies.

Website Hosting - the most widely spread and broadly utilized hosting service today. It's utilized for hosting site files, whose type is dependent on the OS the server is making use of - Linux or Windows. Different types of files necessitate specific web hosting server Operating Systems, otherwise they won't be exhibited properly on the World Wide Web. This kind of web hosting may contain data space and web traffic quota limits, server root access and CPU usage limitations.

Depending on the aims and on the functions, the user should pick the type of web server that he demands for his project, and, of course, the web hosting supplier that's going to furnish it. There are several kinds of servers, based on the specifications and the website hosting services that they provide. These are:

Shared Web Hosting Server - a shared web hosting server provides a smaller amount of resources, which, of course, is reflected on the cost of the service. It can be used for hosting small sized and middle size web portals, which do not demand immense quantities of disk space and bandwidth.

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting - they perform on the same principle as the shared web hosting servers. Yet, there are much less clients sharing the same web server. Hence, each of them will receive a larger share of the hosting server's resources like RAM, data space, web traffic and CPU. Excellent for hosting huge sites that do not demand full root access.

VPS web hosting are ideal for medium size online portals, which do require root-level access to the hosting server's config files. Commonly, there are a bunch of virtual server accounts placed on the same physical server. However, each of them is independent from the other ones and has its own OS.

Dedicated Web Hosting - a completely dedicated physical server set up and accessed by you and solely you. It guarantees a large amount of system resources. It also provides root privileges, which renders it the optimal solution for any type of web site that demands a web hosting service.

The only question that remains is:

Which website hosting supplier should I settle on?

As mentioned above, there are just a few web hosting providers offering warez web hosting solutions because of judicial complications. Such companies are being closed down practically every month. For that reason, if you want to create such a service, you should do it on your very own personal computer. The shared web hosting service is the most widely spread kind of hosting service. That is why, every web hosting distributor provides it. Not all of them, though, offer services such as virtual private web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Web Hosting and dedicated servers. Most of the small scale website hosting vendors do not have the means required for offering those services. You can easily identify such hosting companies by the types of services that they are providing and by the manner in which they introduce them to the clientele. For instance, certain web hosts permit you to start with a small scale website hosting package and afterwards shift to a more advanced one, if you find it necessary to do so. This is quite convenient, because you do not have to migrate web pages between web hosting servers and there is no chance of suffering downtime due to all the complications that may appear.

We, at Odo Global offer all types of services and have the needed web server resources and staff to guarantee that their customers will not suffer any hassles when swapping services, which is what a top hosting corporation is in fact all about.
