Hosting Packages Description
Hosting is a service that web hosting providers offer so that you can publish your web site on the Internet.
How can people discover your website?
When you set up a website and you want other individuals to discern it, you will have to copy (or upload) it to a web hosting server. If you attempt to render the website discoverable on the Internet by hosting it on your own computer, there is no way for you to keep it up and running all the time, which is why website hosting services came into existence.
How does hosting work?
Hosting vendors provide you with content storage space for your site on their high-powered computers (servers) and guarantee continuous network uptime. When somebody writes your web address (e.g. www.my-best-domain.com) in their web browser's address bar, they will be connected to the server where they can see the content of your website.
With the progress of web technologies, different types of web hosting services have appeared to satisfy the various expectations of website possessors, including shared website hosting services, private virtual web server hosting services and dedicated hosting services.
Shared hosting is the most popular type of hosting, and is also the easiest to commence with. It is a service where one web hosting server is divided among numerous hosting account holders who are limited by the CPU, bandwidth and web content space quotas that they have been allotted. This type of web hosting is generally cheaper - you don't have to pay for the whole hosting server upfront, since it is shared between a lot of clients, and the web hosting solutions provider can afford to offer much more affordable prices. It is also easier to use - the web hosting server is pre-installed with all the required software and the hosting supplier handles all server maintenance tasks and security updates on your behalf.
The weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that you share the hosting server's resources with other individuals and if one website becomes very popular it may influence (and slow down) the rest of the web sites on that hosting server, but the majority of web hosting firms, including us at LivHanA- hosting, have protection platforms in place that prevent that from occurring.
A definition of a hosting service
Because shared web hosting is the most commonly used type of web hosting, the majority of hosting providers and web hosting clients simply call it hosting or website hosting. As there is an enormous rivalry on the website hosting marketplace, most hosting distributors strive to provide moderate prices and gifts with their web hosting services. We, for example, provide different web hosting packages and two invoicing options - monthly and yearly, depending on your resources. If you pick the yearly billing cycle, you will get a present - one charge-free domain registration.
VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server. The VPS hosting solution is basically the middle ground between the shared hosting solution and the dedicated web hosting solution. If your web site outgrows the resources offered by your shared web hosting plan, a private virtual server hosting plan is an appropriate solution. virtual server hosting customers still share the hardware resources of the physical machine with other VPS server hosting users, but the hard disk space is split up using special virtualization software so that each partition has its own dedicated resources and can be configured almost like a full-fledged dedicated web hosting server. The advantage is that the CPU and the RAM memory on a virtual private web server are not shared. Moreover, the virtualization software offers you much more autonomy to configure your VPS web server, but it also presupposes a higher degree of technical competence.
With the Dedicated Package solution, the customer obtains an entire server and can utilize all its system resources. The dedicated hosting solution is the most flexible of all website hosting solutions and offers loads of customization possibilities - the dedicated hosting customers can choose the hardware and software specs that will answer their requirements. Dedicated resources and guaranteed performance are among the reasons why a dedicated hosting plan is a perfect solution for a regularly visited corporate web portal, for example - you will not share the physical server's system resources with anyone else and will receive root-level access. You will have complete control over the machine, which will permit you to implement any server configuration changes that you might need. The disadvantage of the dedicated server hosting solution is that a more advanced degree of technical competence is required - unless you hire an IT pro, it will be your duty to manage and configure the server. The dedicated server web hosting solution is also much more high-priced, since the cost of the dedicated server isn't shared among any other users.
A hosting tip for beginner users
If you are just starting to build your site and are searching for a web hosting solution to commence with, the shared website hosting solution remains the most sensible choice. If your website grows beyond your web hosting account's resources, you can usually upgrade. With us, for instance, this is extremely easy and requires no migration of your website files, because only the parameters of your account change. You can also upgrade your website hosting plan to a more advanced one at any given time without worrying about the number of days remaining until the expiration date. Furthermore, if you eventually reach the most powerful shared website hosting package and still require more system resources (which is a good thing sometimes - it means that your site's popularity has grown!), there always is the option to migrate to a private virtual server hosting platform or a dedicated web hosting platform without the need to change web hosting providers.
