Running your own personal web site is a requisite these days. The entry of the World Wide Web in our everyday lives means that, in order for someone to get seen, or to make his voice heard, one has to set up a web site and post it online. In order to do that, you virtually demand two elements - a web site and a hosting service. Before designing an online portal, however, it's necessary to realize that there are diverse types of web hosting services and that not all websites can operate with a randomly selected shared hosting. In order to describe this better, let us commence with the chief theme:

What is website hosting?

Hosting, or also popular as 'web hosting', is a designation that refers to the actual hosting server, or the host that owns the hosting server. A server is a computer that's connected to the Internet and that's set up to support PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which allows the clients to upload their web files on the server and to make them visible on the web. There are 2 main sorts of hosting servers, determined by the Operating System of the web server - Windows and Linux. The 2 OSs are very dissimilar and, in most cases, not at all compatible with each other. Thus, prior to selecting the correct service, one should first verify what kind of web hosting server is demanded for their web site.

If you haven't created the web site so far, then let us have a more detailed glance at the distinction between the two types and at what their positive sides are.

What platform should you select - Windows or Linux?

As stated, there are web application frameworks, which are solely consistent with a specific OS. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not function on a Linux hosting server. For that reason, if you consider to design your site using any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows service. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which denotes that it provides limited possibilities as far as server security and privacy are concerned. So, Linux is used by web server admins worldwide and the majority of hosting vendors use it on their web servers. Utilizing Linux, the admin can configure the hosting server in an entirely modifiable manner, and if the hosting server is appropriately configured, it can guarantee thorough protection against hackers and malware. Plus, the customizability of Linux permits for better software optimization, which contributes to better website operation. Therefore, if you are looking for supreme protection and web server operation, then you should design your website in such a way that it functions with a Linux-based server. This is not hard to accomplish, because the most widespread Content Management Systems, also popular as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully consistent with Linux web servers and are popular all over the Globe for being one of the best applications for constructing and handling sites. By all means, this doesn't suggest that each and every hosting distributor that's utilizing Linux will have admins who are capable to correctly handle a Linux web hosting server. Selecting the right web hosting service provider is very difficult now, as most of them do not possess the capacity to appoint an expert, trained web admin. A Linux server that hasn't been properly set up can be extremely risky to your website and personal details. For that reason, when picking a hosting company, it's always advisable to opt for a bigger web hosting distributor that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to recognize the proper web hosting corporation for my site?

These companies are easily detectable by the way in which they are delivering their services. Experienced hosting providers provide custom-developed functionality, diverse open-source PHP-driven scripts or frameworks. The most practiced, though, possess even their own custom-devised Control Panels designed especially for their system. A hosting Control Panel is an online-based interface, via which the customer handles the entire web hosting service. Smaller web hosting firms avail of pre-developed hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, though, to guarantee supreme safety and effectiveness for their hosting services, the leading hosting providers furnish their customers with their very own personal custom-built hosting CPs built by their own admins. We, at 'Hepsia.Co', don't just provide our very own custom-devised Control Panel, but have also created a free script installation tool, which allows our clients to easily activate any of the abovementioned content management software apps. Features like these reveal that we have the ability, the means and the experience to be entrusted with preserving your personal information private and your web site - up and running on the World Wide Web.
