What is web hosting?

March 30, 2012 in Blog by Brittney Harmon  |  No Comments

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.

Benefits of Co-Location

Co-Location is when a hosting company has the resources in a data center such as, bandwidth, cooling, power, and physical security that a client does not have himself. So, a client can house his server in the hosting company’s data center for a fee.

The benefits are the redundant power and redundant internet access. Most mid0sized companies do not have the same amenities as a hosting company since it is usually unnecessary and extremely costly.

Another benefit of co-location is 24/7 physical security. Hosting companies have an on-staff IT team to keep the data center running smoothly and to fix any problems that may occur. Many mid-sized businesses do not have this amenity either because of the cost .

Servers become very warm when being run all the time and need to be in a cool environment, if a server overheats it will not run correctly. A hosting company has a data which has the perfect environment for the server to operate correctly and not over heat.

Co-Location as many benefits for a client who does not have the resources to run his server in-house.
