Hosting Packages Description
Running your very own personal web site is compulsory in today's society. The integration of the Internet in our daily lives suggests that, in order for someone to get noticed, or to get his voice heard, one needs to have a web page and get it online. In order to fulfill that, you in fact demand two things - a website and a hosting solution. Prior to designing a web site, however, it's essential to understand that there are various types of hosting services and that not all sites can function with a randomly selected hosting. In order to clarify this better, let's begin with the prime question:
What is Web Hosting?
Hosting, or also popular as 'web hosting', is a term that refers to the hosting server itself, or the web host that administers the hosting server. A web server is a computer that's connected to the web and that's set up to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which enables the clients to upload their web files on the web server and to publish them on the web. There are 2 principal kinds of hosting servers, on the basis of the OS of the web hosting server - Windows and Linux. The 2 Operating Systems are quite dissimilar and, in the majority of cases, not at all compatible with each other. That is the reason why, prior to choosing the appropriate service, one should first discover what sort of server is demanded for their online portal.
If you haven't made the website yet, then let's take a more exhaustive glimpse at the difference between the 2 types and at what their positive sides are.
What platform should you go with - Windows or Linux?
As mentioned, there are web apps, which are solely compatible with a given Operating System. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not operate on a Linux web server. Hence, if you want to make your web site using any of the above, you should be seeking a Windows solution. Windows, though, is not an open-source software platform, which signifies that it offers limited possibilities when it comes to server security and privacy. For this reason, Linux is preferred by server administrators worldwide and the majority of hosting providers utilize it on their web servers. Utilizing Linux, the admin can set up the hosting server in a thoroughly modifiable way, and if the web server is appropriately set up, it can ensure full safety against hackers and malware. What's more, the customizability of Linux allows for greater optimization, which contributes to better web site operation. Thus, if you want ultimate protection and server operation, then you should develop your site in such a way that it performs with a Linux-based hosting server. This is not a tough thing to do, since the most famous Content Management Systems, also famous as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are fully consistent with Linux web servers and are known all over the world for being one of the best web apps for devising and handling sites. By all means, this doesn't imply that each hosting vendor that's utilizing Linux will have administrators who are capable to properly administer a Linux server. Selecting the proper hosting distributor is very troublesome today, because the majority of them do not have the ability to engage a professional, trained admin. A Linux web server that hasn't been appropriately set up can be quite hazardous to your web site and private info. So, when choosing a web hosting service provider, it's invariably recommendable to go with an established web hosting corporation that's been in business for at least a couple of years.
How to identify the proper service provider for my web site?
These companies are easily identifiable by the manner in which they are offering their website hosting packages. Established hosting firms provide custom-built functionality, different free open-source scripts or software apps. The most practiced, however, have even their very own custom-created CPs made especially for their system. A CP is an online-based panel, through which the user manages the whole web hosting account. Smaller-sized web hosting distributors make use of pre-developed website hosting CPs such as cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, though, to guarantee utmost protection and effectiveness for their website hosting services, the leading service providers give to their customers their very own personal in-house developed website hosting CPs built by their very own administrators. We, at 'LuisArts Network', don't merely offer our very own personal custom-devised CP, but have also developed a free open-source PHP-driven script package, which permits our clients to easily install any of the aforementioned web content management apps. Specifications such as these are evidence that we have the capacity, the means and the experience to be entrusted with retaining your private information private and your site - up and running on the World Wide Web.
