Shared hosting is a kind of Internet service that allows persons and businesses to make their sites visible on the Internet. Web hosting providers are firms that offer hard disk space on a hosting server placed in a data center and ensure continuous service uptime.

Where do you start?

The Internet is a vital fragment of every person's daily life. It offers you the opportunity to gain money on the side, but can also be a main source of income. In order to place ads on your web page or to popularize a commodity that you offer, you invariably require a hosting solution, which will make certain that your site is protected and constantly reachable. But how do you discover one that is reasonably priced and yet stable enough?

The shared hosting solution

The solution web hosting corporations have brought forth is called shared hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, plenty of hosting users are hosted on one and the very same server. There are rigid limitations on the system resources that each user account can in fact use, thus making certain that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers good performance and is less expensive than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is utilized by only one person. The shared solution permits shared hosting providers to offer their customers cheap prices. It typically includes intuitive hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at kAsTech Hosting provide, and allows everyone to administer their sites without worrying about server configuration and maintenance procedures, which are entirely handled by the hosting corporation.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other private virtual server users, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The private virtual web server hosting solution is the middle ground between the much more moderately priced shared hosting solution and the more expensive dedicated hosting web server solution, and is a very appropriate solution for anyone who would like to run, for example, an audio or video streaming site or a community web portal. The fact that you have to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a disadvantage, but this could also be a great upside if you indeed have to implement certain server configuration changes - something that would be unthinkable on a shared web server.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Dedicated hosting servers are in most situations much more high-priced than shared web hosting or VPS server web hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated hosting web server then? The answer is pretty simple. If your company has a resource-devouring site, or simply has very explicit web server setup and security requirements, the best choice would be a dedicated hosting web server that you or your techs can manage directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in security and dependability, the greater price is of no concern. You are given root privileges and can utilize 100 percent of the dedicated hosting web server's resources without anyone else using these system resources and messing with your sites.
