Hosting In Website web hosting
What is web hosting
Web hosting is a service that allows any organization or any person to post their website or web page on the Internet. A web host or web hosting service provider is a business that provides the technical and services required for a website or web page displayed in the Internet.
You must understand this thing that everything in the world needs a place. Whether they come in our eyes or not. We do not see the wind but it is everywhere.
Similarly, the website that we create needs space to come into the Internet. Web hosting is the place where websites are kept safe in the Internet. To understand this, let us take an example.
Now a days we all have a smartphone and the smartphone has songs, videos, images i.e. photos, documents, and more. Which we save by saving in SD card or smartphone memory.
Just like when we open a website website. So in the website also we get to see all types of contents, photos, videos, songs, documents, texts etc.
Have you ever thought that whenever the website page opens, where do all these photos and text come from? So guys, all these contents are stored in the location online.
We call the same location as Web Hosting. A domain is simply a name from which it is globally recognized. But the web hosting website has both body and life.
Everyone related to blogging speaks it in technical language as Web Hosting.
The physical system used to do this is called Web Server. The server remains connected to the Internet at all times, then we can open the website whenever we want 24 * 7 and see its contents.
How does web hosting work?
Whenever we open a browser like Chrome, Firefox, UC Browser etc. and then go to the address bar and enter the URL or the name of a website, then the domain name in the URL is connected to the IP address.
This IP address points the domain to the server where all the contents of the website are stored.
All the contents of the website are loaded and open in the browser and we are able to see the website. So in this way the website opens and we take the information that we have to take from our website.
types of web hosting
We have yet to know what web hosting is and how it works.
Next, let us know how many types are there according to the usage.
Shared web Hosting
Virtual Private Server (VPS)
Cloud Web Hosting
1. Shared Web Hosting
The way we stay in a hostel or a lodge, then there are more boys in it and together with them, all of them live in sharing by giving equal rent.
In the same way in Shared web hosting, many websites are stored and stored in the same web server.
This type of service is good for beginners. Because they will not get much traffic in the beginning and will not have any problem. Here the problem comes when the website becomes popular and the traffic in it increases a lot.
Now what will happen is that as the traffic increases, the load of the server will increase and its speed will not be sufficient according to the traffic. So that the website will work in slow speed and will take a lot of time to load the page.
Apart from this, other websites which are together will also start working at a slow pace. We understand this by an example, we use a lot of apps in our smartphone.
These are of different sizes when we use them by minimizing them together and also open a game together. Now by keeping it minimized, you will see that your smartphone will now work very slowly.
This happened because, like high traffic website, games also use more space of our phone and RAM. That is why the entire phone becomes slow and other apps also start running slowly.
2. Virtual Private Servers (VPS)
Virtual Private Severs is similar to the flats of a large building where the owner of a flat is owned by one person and fills all the rents alone.
No one shares the money with him and no other owner can come and live in it. In this, the building is divided into many parts as one but flats which have different owners.
In the same way, virtualization technology is used in VPS, in which the physical computer system as a server is just one but virtually divided into several accounts.
Because all the websites in it remain in the same Physical Server. But are stored in virtually different divided space. And are not able to use other website space.
This is the reason that even if there is more traffic in this type of web hosting, the speed of the website will not be slow. And there will be no problem of any kind ahead.
If you want a capability like Dedicated server for low cost for the performance of your website, then VPS server is best.
3. Dedicated Server Hosting
Dedicated Server is like a lush house where just you have the right and every kind of facility is available.
Just for this you have to bear the cost to use different facility. The server used in dedicated is very fast and works very fast.
This is only for one website, that is why it has been named Dedicated. The server that is dedicated in Dedicated only stores all the contents of a website like photo video documents.
There is no Sharing in it, there is no other website content.
That is why its speed is also fast. There is no other website in sharing, so it is a bit expensive and only one person has to bear all the expenses.
In a website where traffic is very high and visitors are very much, it is very beneficial for them in the website.
This type of service is mostly used by e-commerce websites. Website like Amazon, ebay, Snapdeal, Transportation.
4. Cloud Web Hosting
This is a new type of web hosting and it is spreading in the market very fast. This performance and cost wise is slightly different from the rest.
In this, many Servers work for only one website at the same time and provide the best service as well as they also secure the website.
When the Group of Servers work together, this is called Cloud. With this, the website with high traffic is controlled with great ease and regular speed is good even when the website has more traffic.
This is the reason why Cloud Hosting was considered the most costly. But now it has come with a very cheap plan. Right now Digital Ocean and Vultr have started the service of cloud server at a very cheap price.
You can also use the first month for free and you can check its performance and how much the speed of your website is.
linux Web Vs Windows Web Hosting
Whenever you go to buy Web Hosting, we are given two options as to what kind of server you want to get.
Linux or Windows
If there is not much difference between these two, then let us understand what is different between each other.
By the way, most people choose Linux web hosting. Because this type of operating system is Open Source Operating System. That is why we have to pay less to use it.
But compared to this, the Windows Operating system is expensive because licenses are used for it.
This makes it very secure and because of this the Windows Operating system would be expensive. While purchasing this, carefully choose the following facts, keeping in mind the performance of your website.
Every company providing Web Hosting claims that they provide 24 * 7 customer service. By the way, my personal experience is still good. I used to use GoDaddy.
But now I am using Hostgator. They provide very good service until your problem is solved, they will continue to help.
Hostgator’s customer service provides very good service. If you want to host your site in Hostgator, you can buy from here.
When we go to buy computers, we choose the capacity of hard disk according to our needs. If we want to keep Movies Games Songs in computer, then we will take hard disk of maximum capacity.
If you do not think to use more, then in the present time the minimum will be 500 Gb. Similarly, when we make our website, we know what the contents will be in the website.
If the content is not enough, we will not want to take up much space and if we want to use more space then we will take unlimited space.
So that the storage of the website will never end. Some companies offering this type of service are Blue Host, Digital Ocean and Hostgator.
Sometimes you may have seen that you try to open a website again and again but the website does not open, this is why the server goes down, which is called Downtime.
Uptime is spoken for as long as the website is online or available. Most companies today promise to give 99% Uptime.
The bandwidth is called by how much data is accessed per second. Bandwidth Unlimited should be selected only, otherwise when there are more visitors in the website, then the website will become slow.
This is due to the slowing down of the website, that if the rate of sending data per second is low or limited, then the server will not be able to send more data than that.
Due to increasing visitor, the website will not be able to load the content to every visitor at the same time, and the website will be very slow. Due to this, no visitor will want to visit the website again.
