Website Hosting 101

To have a website on the Internet you first need to have a web
server. Unfortunately, owning a web server can be very costly and
requires technical expertise. This is where web hosts come in. Web
hosting companies provide the equipment and other technical re-
sources that you need without the headaches that come when you
have to do it yourself.

In other words, the web host provides the place on the Internet where you website resides. It’s a cheaper than buying you own server, and you don’t have to hire the technical staff to maintain it.

There are basically 3 types of servers; dedicated, shared, and VPS
(virtual private server)…

Dedicated – A single computer. Allows for faster access to information
and can handle heavy data-driven sites, advanced e-commerce pro-
gramming, video streaming and multimedia programs.

Shared – Designed for entry-level hosting needs. Made to host small
scale e-commerce sites, and static web pages. You share server space
with others.

VPS – The web sites reside in private and protected areas on a
shared server and maintain an independent set of applications.
Intended to meet entry to mid-level hosting needs.

We host all of our websites on a Linux Dedicated Server. This
prevents our clients from having to share server space with thousands
of others. It also supports higher volumes of traffic while maintaining
an extremely secure environment.
