Hosting is a service for providing the capacity of the server for a website or application. Usually, the same service includes space for mail, databases, users, and so on. Hostings differ in terms of support for various services and scripts, as well as in terms of disk space, the number of sites that can be hosted, and a number of other criteria, which are described below. Some of them, such as Zomro hosting, offer all kinds of storage for hosting websites and other information.
This is one of the easiest, cheapest and most common ways to get hosting, when all client sites are hosted on the same server. A user receives an affordable price and full responsibility from the provider for technical administration. On the other hand there is relatively low power and the impossibility of fine-tuning the system. If your site needs specific software or modules, shared hosting will not fit.
Technical administration is completely taken over by the provider, providing the client with a panel that already has all the configured functions. Suitable for simple sites with little traffic – landing pages, business cards, blogs. It is also good for beginner entrepreneurs, as it allows you to save on payments, and the resources of an unlimited tariff are quite enough for a small online store.
The concept is that several servers are formed into a cluster, a cloud. Their resources are combined, creating a single cloud server, and from it clients receive hosting. The advantage is that such a system is more stable – all machines secure each other, and the operation of hosting services no longer depends on one computer.
If one of the servers fails, it’s okay, the rest will redistribute its “duties”. Also, one of the pros of cloud hosting can be considered a payment after the resources consumed, rather than a monthly fixed payment.
Virtual Dedicated Server
Provided to a user on VDS, which is located on a separate physical machine. This type differs from regular hosting with root rights, which allows you to install any programs and scripts, as well as have full access to all files and processes in the system.
Also, it allows you to have an unlimited number of:
- databases and;
- FTP users.
Of the benefits – greater stability, more power, the ability to freely install the necessary OS, your own software and, in general, do whatever your heart desires. Of course, within the law. Cons – high cost compared to shared hosting and the need to do administration yourself.
Dedicated physical server
The client receives a separate “iron” server for full use, on which he can independently install the OS, software and configure it at his discretion. Now the entire server is entirely at his disposal and does not have to share power with other clients.
A dedicated server is suitable for large projects – sites with a large number of visitors, online stores, online games, social networks. The provider gives hardware and is only responsible for the maintenance of equipment and an uninterrupted Internet connection.
