Hosting Plans Explanation
Hosting is a type of online service that allows individuals and businesses to make their web portals accessible on the World Wide Web. Web hosting providers are companies that offer content storage space on a server physically located in a data center and guarantee constant network connectivity.
Where do you begin?
The Internet is a vital fragment of every person's everyday agenda. It gives you the possibility to gain extra money, but can also be a major source of revenue. In order to place commercials on your website or to publicize a product that you sell, you always require a hosting service, which will ensure that your online portal is secure and continually reachable. But how do you find one that is modestly priced and yet trustworthy enough?

The solution hosting providers have brought forth is called shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, plenty of user accounts are accommodated on one and the very same web hosting server. There are strict limits on the system resources that each web hosting account can in fact utilize, thus ensuring that they do not interfere with each other. The shared solution offers acceptable performance and is more affordably priced than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is used by just one person. The shared solution enables hosting corporations to offer their clients inexpensive prices. It ordinarily includes user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Cowboy Web Hosting provide, and enables everyone to administer their sites without bothering about server setup and maintenance procedures, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting vendor.
With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical machine with other private virtual server web hosting account holders, but you are allocated a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual server web hosting solution is the middle ground between the much less expensive shared web hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting server solution, and is an excellent option for anyone who wishes to have, for example, an audio or video streaming web site or a community web site. The fact that you need to take care of the web server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a big upside if you indeed have to implement some server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web hosting server.
Dedicated servers are in most circumstances much more expensive than shared or Virtual Private Server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting server then? The answer is rather simple. If your company has a heavy resource-swallowing online portal, or just has very exact server setup and security requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated web server that you or your server administrators can manage directly. For someone who is ready to invest in security and stability, the higher price is of no concern. You are given full root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the web hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these resources and intervening with your online portals.
