Choose the right Hosting Service as per your need

September 28th, 2010

To choose the right one we need to know the types of hosting available.

The types are as follows -

Free web hosting service:

They are generally offered with limited services, manytimes with advertisements.

Shared web hosting service:

In this type  website is placed on the same server as many other sites, it may be for hundreds or thousands.They are commonly provided by resellers.

Reseller web hosting:

They allows clients to become web hosts themselves. They could work for individual domains or many domains. Resellers’ accounts may vary tremendously in size. Resellers provide a nearly identical service to their provider’s shared hosting plan and provide the technical support themselves.

Virtual Dedicated Server:

They are also known as a Virtual Private Server (VPS), it divides server resources into virtual servers. The users may have root access to their own virtual space. Customers are sometimes responsible for patching and maintaining the server.

Dedicated hosting service:

The user gets his  full control over the server and root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows. The user has full administrative access to the server, which means the client is responsible for the security and maintenance of his own dedicated server.

Managed hosting service:

User gets his or her own Web server but it does not have full control over it. They are allowed to manage their data via FTP or other remote management tools.
The provider can guarantee quality of service as it does not allow  the users to modify the server configuration problems.
The server is leased to the client.

Colocation web hosting service:

They are same as  dedicated web hosting service, the hosting company provides physical space that the server takes up and takes care of the server.
This is the most powerful and expensive type of web hosting service.
In most cases, the colocation provider may provide little to no support directly for their client’s machine, the provider only provide  the electrical, Internet access, and storage facilities for the server.
In most cases for colo, the client would have his own employee / webmaster / administrator visit the data center on site to do any hardware upgrades or changes.

Cloud Hosting:

In this type it allows customers powerful, scalable and reliable hosting based on clustered load-balanced servers and utility billing.
Removing single-point of failures and allowing customers to pay for only what they use versus what they could use.

Clustered hosting:

Having multiple servers hosting the same content for better resource utilization.
Clustered Servers are a perfect solution for high-availability dedicated hosting, or creating a scalable web hosting solution.
A cluster may separate web serving from database hosting capability.

Grid hosting:

In this form of distributed hosting is when a server cluster works like a grid and is made of multiple nodes.

Home server:

It is a single PC at home can be used to host one or more web sites from a broadband connection.
A common way to attain a reliable DNS hostname is by creating an account with a dynamic DNS service.
A dynamic DNS service will automatically change the IP address that a URL points to when the IP address changes.

Hope you can get the best one

All the best
