Web Hosting Basics

Once our business has decided to develop a Web site, we’ll need to understand everything from basic industry terms to additional features. Before we decide to host our website its important to get our domain,so first thing is to get knowledge about hosting? Once we’ve figured out what our Domain Name is going to be, the next step is to figure out how to make it available on the Internet.

All sites on the Internet are hosted on Web servers in one way or another. The hosting is generically used to describe a variety of services necessary to support a website. If we connect a couple of computers together at home, or at work, then share printers and even disk drives – we’ve got a little network set up. If we connect millions of computers around the world together and we’ve got the Internet. This is the way through which we can spread our business in a very easy manner.

To make the connection we usually dial into an Internet Service Provider or ISP who gives us the ability to connect to the web, email, and use other parts of the internet as well. The ISP does not only give their customers a way to connect their home computers to the internet, they also permit websites on their computers which are called servers. By creating a website and putting it on a server connected to the rest of the net, anyone in the world who is also connected to the net can see our site.

The most general way, a website requires hardware, software, a connection to the Internet, and an administrator. Relay or connection. Better providers will provide redundant connections. Hosting services can be divided into four different parts, with each providing a different set of administrative, hardware, software, and connectivity services. Our choice will depend upon our business requirements and our technical capability. Generally, as the level of service increases, the costs increase.

The four categories are:
* Shared
* Co-location
* Dedicated
* In house

The main types of hosting are:

Shared Hosting environment put multiple websites on one server. All of the websites on the shared server use the same network connection, the same hardware resources, and the same software. we are only responsible for managing the design and content of the Web site. We rent our own dedicated server from a hosting provider. The hosting provider is responsible for buying hardware, installing software, and maintaining the server. we may customize the server with remote server access and would be responsible for managing any applications.

With collocated Web hosting, the Web host provides our company with space to store our own server hardware and a high-speed connection to the Internet for that server.

Server collocation is generally best for companies that have the in-house capability to manage a Web server. We set up a server on our own premises. We buy the connectivity, hardware, and software, and configure and maintain the system. We need to hire a system administrator or an information technology team.
