Web Hosting Packages Description
You have a concept that you desire to transform into a site? Your first step should be to sustain your inspiration and discover a place for your website online so that it will be always visible to the whole world.
Where should you host your website?
Because the number of web sites online has grown exponentially during the last few years, the demand for web hosting services has also lead to the birth of innumerable web hosting firms. These are firms that offer you hard disk space for your own web page on their hosting servers.
Varieties of web hosting services
The scope of web hosting services fluctuates considerably, so do the requirements of the web page possessors. The most basic type of web hosting is the small-size file hosting solution, where files can be uploaded using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a web-based user interface. Lots of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide this service free of cost. Personal website proprietors and corporations can also get website hosting services from different web hosting distributors. Personal website hosting services are usually either free, ad-sponsored, or cheap. Business web hosting services normally are more expensive, but due to the gigantic competition on the web hosting market, a growing number of hosting firms, like us at Sreda s.r.o., deliver business website hosting services at lowered prices and with flexible invoicing intervals.
Types of websites and their prerequisites
The free-of-charge website hosting platform is normally sufficient for personal web sites such as portfolios or online journals. A more complex site, like a social network or a corporate web site, needs a more powerful website hosting solution that provides database support and web application development platforms (for example PHP). If you want to host a web shop, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) must be supported by the hosting solutions provider of your choice. These days, SSL certificates are furnished by most web hosts.
The web hosting Control Panel
The host usually also provides a Control Panel graphical user interface for managing your files, email mailbox accounts, electronic mail aliases, domain names, DNS records, etc.
When picking a hosting service, website availability is a very essential factor. The availability of a website is assessed on a yearly basis by taking into account the time when the website is publicly accessible and viewable on the web. Network and service uptime guarantees, therefore, should be attentively taken into account when ordering a web hosting service. You should double-check the SLAs and the Terms & Conditions of the hosting provider of your choice in advance. Finding reviews from current clients is also a quite smart move before you decide to register.

The most famous and modestly priced type of web hosting service is the shared hosting solution. It offers 24x7x365 client support, which is a big advantage for customers who do not want to cope with server maintenance tasks, but could also obstruct customers who desire to have more control over the server. For such customers, a virtual private servers or a dedicated hosting would be more appropriate. Most popular apps and scripts work fine on a shared hosting web server. Moreover, the shared web hosting solution costs less than other types of web hosting solutions, like the dedicated hosting, because the hosting solutions provider divides the shared hosting web server among lots of customers. The shared web hosting platform usually involves system resource usage limits that ensure that the different users do not meddle with each other and that the shared server remains stable.
Handling your shared web hosting account
Shared website hosting packages usually include a web-based Control Panel interface, like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, and so on. The majority of the large-sized hosting companies, again like us at Sreda s.r.o., use their own personal custom-built Control Panel.
Web server maintenance
With the shared hosting platform, the web hosting supplier is responsible for managing the web and email servers, for installing server software, security updates and patches, and for offering technical support to its clients. The majority of web servers are based on the Linux OS. The hosting supplier's sysadmins are in charge of maintaining the OS up to date, unless you have a dedicated hosting web server and root privileges.
