Having your very own private site is obligatory in modern-day society. The integration of the Internet in our daily lives suggests that, in order for somebody to get seen, or to get his voice heard, one has to construct a web page and post it online. In order to do that, you virtually demand two elements - a website and a hosting solution. Before designing an online portal, however, it's necessary to realize that there are diverse types of web hosting services and that not all web sites can operate with a randomly picked web hosting. In order to explain this better, let's begin with the chief topic:

What is Hosting?

Hosting, or also popular as 'web hosting', is a name that relates to the web server itself, or the web hosting supplier that runs the hosting server. A server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's set up to use PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which permits the customers to upload their website files on the web server and to have them published on the World Wide Web. There are 2 major varieties of web servers, depending on the OS of the server - Windows and Linux. The 2 OSs are quite dissimilar and, in most instances, not at all consistent with one another. This is the reason why, prior to choosing the proper service, one should first ascertain what type of server is needed for their website.

If you haven't established the site yet, then let us have a more comprehensive glance at the distinction between the 2 types and at what their strengths are.

What solution should you settle on - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are web apps, which are only consistent with a given OS. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not function on a Linux web server. Hence, if you plan to make your site utilizing any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows service. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which denotes that it provides restricted options when it comes to server safety and privacy. That's why, Linux is favored by web server administrators around the Globe and most hosting firms utilize it on their hosting servers. Using Linux, the admin can set up the web server in a totally modifiable manner, and if the hosting server is properly set up, it can offer total safety against hackers and malware. What's more, the flexibility of Linux allows for better optimization, which results in better website functioning. So, if you want utmost security and web server operation, then you should create your website in such a manner that it functions with a Linux-driven web hosting server. This is not problematic to do, because the most famous Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully compatible with Linux web servers and are popular all over the world for being one of the best software platforms for developing and managing websites. Surely, this doesn't imply that each and every hosting vendor that's utilizing Linux will have administrators who are able to properly manage a Linux web server. Selecting the right hosting service provider is very problematic today, because the majority of them do not possess the ability to hire a proficient, trained web admin. A Linux server that hasn't been appropriately configured can be extremely hazardous to your site and private details. Thus, when picking a web host, it's always recommendable to go with a bigger hosting firm that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to spot the appropriate web hosting service provider for my site?

These web hosting service providers are easily recognizable by the manner in which they are delivering their website hosting packages. Experienced web hosting distributors provide custom-built functionality, diverse free open-source PHP-driven scripts or web application frameworks. The most practiced, though, possess even their own custom-invented website hosting Control Panels designed especially for their platform. A website hosting Control Panel is a web-based panel, through which the client manages the entire web hosting account. Smaller-sized hosting corporations use ready-made website hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, though, to ensure ultimate protection and efficiency for their website hosting services, the biggest hosting providers give to their customers their very own personal custom-made web hosting Control Panels created by their very own administrators. We, at 'MEGAHOST', don't simply provide our very own custom-made Control Panel, but have also developed a free-of-cost script software package, which allows our clients to easily install any of the aforesaid Content Management System platforms. Specs like these signify that we have the capacity, the means and the necessary experience to be entrusted with maintaining your private information confidential and your website - up and running on the Internet.
