What is web hosting?

March 30, 2012 in Blog by Brittney Harmon  |  Comments Off on What is web hosting?

Web hosting is an internet service which allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.

Web hosts are companies such as, Lola Hosting, that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center.

There are my types of web hosting services. The most common is shared hosting. Shared hosting is when many client websites share one server, but uses the same resources.

Many clients do not wish to share resources with other clients so a hosting company “rents” a server to the client which is called dedicated hosting.

If a client does not have the resources to enable their website properly a hosting company may have a service to rack and provide resources to the server which is called co-location.

A web hosting service which is more commonly used by larger organizations is VPN/VPS.A web hosting company can create a “time-share” with our Virtual Private Server (VPS) service.

A web service company can connect your home office to other regional offices with our Virtual Private Networking (VPN) service.
