What is hosting? Different Types of Web Hosting

Building a website is one of the powerful ways to increase your presence in cyberspace, especially for those of you who are an online businessman.

Before building a website, there are several things you need to pay attention to, one of the most important things is Hosting.

This hosting is a very important part for the establishment of a website. Moreover for those of you who are serious about setting up a website for the general public. Well, actually what is hosting? why hosting is an important part to consider when building a website? Find answers to the questions above in the complete discussion about Hosting below:

1. Understanding Hosting

Broadly speaking Hosting is a place where we can store various types of data (photos, videos, files, scripts, apps, etc.) on your website. In everyday life, this hosting can be likened to us as an empty land. You can make anything on this vacant land. Now, before you build or build a building on the land, you must rent the land to the owner at a predetermined price. This price can be determined by many things, some of which are: land area, land conditions, and how strategic the location is. This is also the same as Hosting. The price for each hosting is different, determined by the capacity of the hosting itself. The greater the capacity, the more expensive the price.

2. Hosting Function

There are two main functions of a Hosting, including the following: A. As a Data Storage Place As I have discussed in the discussion above, that Hosting is a data storage site for a website / website. With this Hosting you as a website admin can freely save data from the website that you have on the Hosting. Hosting itself has a variety of capacities, some are 30MB, 80MB, 100MB, 1GB, 2GB and so on. Of course, the greater the hosting capacity, the more places that can be used to store data. And the greater the hosting capacity, will also make the price of the hosting more expensive. B. Ensuring Your Website Can Be Accessed 24 Hours

Aside from being a data storage, Hosting also has other functions, namely ensuring that your website can be accessed properly by the visitors / visitors. Choosing the right hosting is one thing that is very important. Because if you choose the wrong hosting it will have an impact on your website, such as an error when accessed and so on. Therefore, make sure that you choose hosting that is fast, with speedy service, and does not often down.

3. Types of Hosting

A. Free Hosting As the name implies, the first type of Hosting is free hosting, aka no need to pay. You can get Free Hosting on various websites, such as Blogger.com , Wordpress.com , Tumblr.com , or Weebly.com. What is lacking from Free Hosting is its limited capacity, maybe only a few GB. In addition, the services of Free Hosting are also limited and not as good as paid Hosting. B. Shared Hosting Shared Hosting is a type of paid hosting that usually has an affordable price. Shared Hosting is often used by personal blog sites with not too many visitors.

Now Shared Hosting is actually a type of paid hosting that has quite a qualified service and is more than enough for general website needs. The work system of Shared Hosting is to place multiple websites on the same server, where multiple sites exchange resources such as RAM and CPU. C. Dedicated Hosting Basically Dedicated Hosting work system is almost the same as Shared Hosting, the difference is in this Dedicated Hosting, one server only serves one website. Therefore, this Dedicated Hosting is one type of Hosting that has good security and performance services, because one server only serves one site, no other sites participate in using that server.

D. VPS Hosting VPS Hosting is an abbreviation of Virtual Private Server, is a type of Hosting that has quality and qualified performance and is very good compared to Shared Hosting. VPS Hosting is a type of Hosting that has more resources than other Hosting, therefore sites that have VPS Hosting can freely store various types of data. Just a little info, that VPS Hosting is very suitable for use by websites that have tens of thousands of visitors every day. E. Cloud Hosting Slightly superior to VPS Hosting is Cloud Hosting. Cloud Hosting is a type of hosting that consists of many servers that are interconnected with one another.

These servers will cooperate with each other to keep the website stable. So if you use this Cloud Hosting service, then you don't need to worry anymore if your site will error when accessed.

4. Reasons for Choosing to Use Hosting

Actually using Hosting is not mandatory, but for those of you who are serious about managing your website, it is recommended to use paid hosting. Is it wrong if I use the Free Hosting service? Not! using free hosting certainly does not hurt, but if you are a website owner who already has tens of thousands of visitors every day then again I recommend using paid hosting. Because if you have thousands of visitors to your site but still use free hosting services, it is feared that your site will be down when accessed.

Thus the full discussion regarding Hosting. By understanding the above reviews, hopefully later you as a website owner can be wiser in using Hosting. I think that's all for discussion this time, more or less apologize. Finally, I say thank you and see you next time.
