Web Hosting
  • Web hosting is the service that is provided by a
    web hosting company to website owners for the
    purpose of making their sites accessible over the
    Internet. In it, server space is provided for
    storing the files of websites. These files are
    then delivered over the internet on users search
    requests to make the respective websites
    accessible.
  • In web hosting, not only the required server
    space is provided but also all the necessary
    technologies and services are made available that
    ensure seamless functioning of a website and keep
    it up and running at all times. Web hosting
    companies that provide the most efficient service
    are usually referred to as the Best Website
    Hosting Company, the Best Linux Hosting
    Company, the Best Cloud Hosting Company etc.
  • Web hosting can be of many types such as shared,
    dedicated, VPS, cloud, reseller etc. The aim of
    this PPT is to provide comprehensive information
    on each of the main types of web hosting service.

Shared Hosting
  • Shared hosting, which can be Windows-based or
    Linux-based, is the most common and the most
    economical web hosting option. In it, a single
    server is shared by multiple websites. Hence,
    multiple websites are hosted on the same server.
    These websites share the resources of the same
    server, based on their individual plans. The
    amount of server resources that a website has
    access to in shared hosting depends on the limit
    of the hosting package that has been availed.
  • Shared hosting is an ideal web hosting option for
    the following-
  • Bloggers
  • Websites that are simple, receive very less
    traffic, or are small to medium-size
  • Website owners with less budget for hosting

5
The Pros and Cons of Shared Hosting
  • Pro- Its main advantage is that it is the most
    economical web hosting option.
  • Cons- The main disadvantage of shared web hosting
    has to do with performance issue for websites
    with heavy traffic, which is caused by resource
    sharing. Moreover, security issues can crop up in
    shared hosting.

Dedicated Hosting/ Dedicated Server
  • Dedicated server/ dedicated hosting refers to a
    type of web hosting service in which an entire
    server is leased by a website owner. Since a
    dedicated server is not shared with anyone, such
    a server along with its resources serve the
    exclusive use of that website. It enables the
    client of dedicated hosting to have full control
    over the server and configure it to meet his/her
    requirements.
  • Dedicated hosting is an ideal web hosting option
    for the following-
  • Websites that get a lot of traffic or anticipate
    fast grow
  • Enterprises
  • Revenue-generating sites
  • Business critical applications
  • Websites that require a high-level of
    customization and security

8
The Pros and Cons of Dedicated Hosting
  • Pros- Dedicated server/dedicated hosting has many
    benefits. These include greater control over the
    server, enhanced flexibility with regard to the
    management of a website, augmented website
    security and performance, fast loading time etc.
  • Con- Dedicated server/dedicated hosting can be a
    comparatively expensive hosting option.

9
VPS (Virtual Private Server)
  • VPS is the abbreviation for Virtual Private
    Server. This type of web hosting is designed to
    deliver a dedicated server environment within a
    shared server. Its popularity stems from the fact
    that it usually costs less than a dedicated
    server but is more reliable than shared hosting
    and delivers enhanced security and performance
    when compared to shared hosting.
  • In VPS, a physical server has multiple sections
    that are virtually-partitioned. Hence, despite
    sharing the physical server, each VPS has its own
    environment and receives a fixed amount of
    resources. VPS hosting can be managed or
    self-managed.

10
The Pros and Cons of VPS
  • Pros- The various benefits of a VPS include its
    cost-effectiveness, customizability, enhanced
    security and stability, greater control over
    server resources, faster set-up etc.
  • Cons- It is an expensive option compared to
    shared hosting and requires one to have technical
    know-how for managing it.

11
The Pros and Cons of Cloud Hosting
  • Pros- Enhanced scalability and flexibility along
    with performance, higher uptime and availability
    and rapid deployment are the major benefits that
    cloud hosting delivers.
  • Con- There is a possibility of encountering
    latency in cloud hosting.

12
Reseller Hosting
  • Reseller hosting is a type of web hosting
    service, wherein the resources, such as disk
    space and bandwidth, that are received by a
    reseller are sold by him to other end users at
    prices decided by the reseller. Hence, in this
    type of hosting the reseller acts as a hosting
    service provider for those who avail his
    services.
  • Reseller hosting is an ideal web hosting option
    for the following-
  • Those that want to earn money
  • Those that want to start web hosting easily and
    at minimum expense
  • Those that do not want to handle the technical
    complexities involved in web hosting
  • For businesses that are already in the web
    industry

13
The Pros and Cons of Reseller Hosting
  • Pros- There are numerous advantages of reseller
    hosting. These benefits include earning profits
    at minimal expenditure, avoiding the usual
    hassles of web hosting along with
    maintenance-related issues etc.
  • Con- The main drawback of reseller hosting has to
    do with the fact that if anything goes wrong with
    the hosting service provider of the reseller,
    then the resellers service will suffer. If the
    resellers web hosts servers are down frequently
    then the reseller might lose his clients along
    with his credibility.
