Shared hosting is a type of Internet service that allows persons and firms to make their websites visible on the Internet. Hosting service providers are companies that offer hard disk space on a web server housed in a data center facility and ensure uninterrupted service uptime.

Where do you start?

The World Wide Web is an integral component of our daily routine. It offers you the opportunity to earn a little side cash, but can also be a main source of revenue. In order to incorporate commercials on your web page or to publicize a product or a service that you sell, you always require a hosting service, which will ensure that your web page is protected and constantly visible. But how do you discover one that is affordable and yet stable enough?

The shared web hosting platform

The solution web hosting vendors have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared hosting solution, plenty of clients are hosted on the same web hosting server. There are strict restrictions on the system resources that each hosting account can actually utilize, thus guaranteeing that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers decent performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated hosting server, which is utilized by only one customer. The shared hosting solution enables shared hosting providers to offer their customers moderate prices. It typically comes with intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Darkforged Services provide, and enables everybody to manage their web portals without worrying about server setup and maintenance tasks, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting vendor.

Virtual private servers hosting

With the virtual private servers hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other private virtual web server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much cheaper shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting web server solution, and is a very suitable option for anyone who desires to create, for example, a live streaming site or a social network. The circumstance that you have to take care of the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a big advantage if you really need to make some server configuration changes - something that would be impossible on a shared web server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in the majority of cases much more high-priced than shared web hosting or virtual server hosting solutions. You might ask why would anyone use a dedicated web server then? The explanation is very simple. If your corporation has a high resource-absorbing web page, or simply has very explicit server setup and safety requirements, the best option is a dedicated server that you or your techs can administer directly. For someone who is willing to invest in security and stability, the higher price is not a concern. You have full server root access and can use 100 percent of the hosting web server's resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your websites.
