Hosting, or otherwise known as 'web hosting', is a name that relates to the actual web server, or the provider that runs the web hosting server. A hosting server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's configured to use PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which enables the customers to upload their files on the hosting server and to publish them on the World Wide Web. There are two principal varieties of hosting servers, determined by the OS of the server - Windows and Linux. The two OSs are very dissimilar and, in most instances, not at all compatible with each other. This is the reason why, prior to picking the appropriate solution, one should first verify what kind of web hosting server is needed for their online portal.
If you haven't developed the website so far, then let us have a more comprehensive look at the difference between the 2 varieties and at what their strengths are.
What service should you pick - Windows or Linux?
As pointed out, there are web applications, which are only compatible with a given OS. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not operate on a Linux hosting server. So, if you want to set up your website utilizing any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows solution. Windows, however, is not open source-based, which indicates that it provides limited possibilities in terms of server safety and privacy. Hence, Linux is favored by server administrators around the world and the majority of hosting suppliers use it on their servers. Utilizing Linux, the administrator can configure the web hosting server in an entirely modifiable manner, and if the hosting server is properly configured, it can offer full security against hackers and malware. What's more, the customizability of Linux permits for better optimization, which leads to better web site performance. Hence, if you are looking for supreme safety and server performance, then you should design your web site in such a manner that it performs with a Linux-powered web server. This is not a difficult thing to achieve, as the most popular Content Management Systems, also popular as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully consistent with Linux web servers and are known all around the Globe for being one of the best web apps for developing and managing websites. Surely, this doesn't mean that each and every hosting corporation that's using Linux will have administrators who are able to appropriately run a Linux web hosting server. Choosing the correct web hosting service provider is quite hard today, because the majority of them do not have the ability to appoint a capable, experienced admin. A Linux web server that hasn't been correctly configured can be very hazardous to your site and personal info. So, when choosing a web hosting vendor, it's always advisable to pick a bigger provider that's been in business for at least a few years.
How to spot the proper web hosting provider for my web site?
These web hosting service providers are easily recognizable by the way in which they are distributing their hosting packages. Practiced web hosting providers provide custom-built functionality, diverse free scripts or web app frameworks. The most experienced, though, possess even their very own personal custom-built web hosting Control Panels developed particularly for their system. A website hosting Control Panel is an online-based user interface, through which the user administers the whole web hosting service. Smaller hosting suppliers make use of ready-to-use website hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure maximum protection and efficacy for their hosting services, the biggest web hosting firms supply their clients with their own personal in-house developed hosting Control Panels built by their own admins. We, at 'EZ IT Solutions', don't simply offer our very own personal custom-built Control Panel, but have also set up a free open-source PHP-powered script installation tool, which allows our customers to easily activate any of the aforesaid open-source content management applications. Specifications such as these are evidence that we have the capacity, the means and the experience to be entrusted with keeping your personal information confidential and your website - live on the Internet.
