Web hosting explained
Good quality Web hosting services must guarantee that your site will be reachable online 24/7/365 from anywhere in the world, that they will deliver your contents quickly and to every visitor.
After spending some time surfing the Internet, you probably started wishing to have a web site of your own, be it an online diary, a discussion board, an image gallery or a web store. You may have already made up your mind about it and now you are learning how to do it.
The first step is to select a Web hosting provider and a hosting plan. There are plenty of companies able to assist you. So many that it may seem daunting and difficult to choose one. But if you establish from the very beginning the key features that you expect from your website, the task ahead will be much easier:
- What is the purpose for your site? Is it a personal blog? Your business corporate site? An online store?
- How much traffic do you expect? What kind of content will your site serve to your visitors? How will they engage with your site?
- Will you build it yourself or will you get help from a professional?
Now you can choose what kind of plan you need! If your site is going to be a personal or business site and you will build it yourself, a 'cloud (shared) hosting' plan is probably more than enough for you. Cloud or shared hosting means that your site will be hosted on a server which also host many other sites from different clients. This is okay! These servers are what is commonly refered to as 'The Cloud', therefore, they are prepared to manage that many clients! And due to the pooling of resources among several servers you will benefit from plenty of disk space among other features!
On the other hand, if your website will be a big corporate site or it will stream video or engage users actively and keep them connected for long periods of time such as is the case for a social media site then you will require semi-dedicated or dedicated servers.
In either scenario you will benefit from also having access to an email server customised for handling your own domain name. And that domain name will require to be managed through a DNS server to effectively direct your visitors to the right machine serving your contents.
All of the above would be the minimum services any hosting company should be able to provide you. At 'Online Presence Solutions' we provide them but we also believe you deserve more!
