Possessing your very own personal web page is obligatory these days. The integration of the World Wide Web in our daily lives means that, in order for somebody to be noticed, or to make his opinion heard, one has to make a web site and get it online. In order to achieve that, you practically need two elements - a web site and a hosting solution. Prior to designing a website, though, it's crucial to have in mind that there are various varieties of hosting services and that not all sites can perform with a randomly selected shared hosting. In order to explain this better, let's start with the principal topic:

What is Web Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise famous as 'web hosting', is an appellation that relates to the actual web server, or the web hosting firm that possesses the server. A server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's set up to support PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which allows the customers to upload their web files on the web server and to publish them on the World Wide Web. There are 2 principal kinds of servers, based on the Operating System of the web server - Windows and Linux. The two OSs are quite different and, in most cases, not at all consistent with each other. For this reason, prior to selecting the relevant service, one should first check what sort of hosting server is demanded for their web site.

If you haven't developed the web site yet, then let us have a more detailed glance at the difference between the two varieties and at what their positive aspects are.

What solution should you choose - Windows or Linux?

As stated, there are web applications, which are only compatible with a given OS. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not operate on a Linux hosting server. Hence, if you are looking to devise your website using any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows solution. Windows, however, is not open source-based, which suggests that it offers limited opportunities when it comes to server safety and privacy. That's why, Linux is utilized by server administrators worldwide and most hosting companies use it on their hosting servers. Utilizing Linux, the administrator can configure the hosting server in a totally modifiable way, and if the server is properly set up, it can offer supreme safety against hackers and malware. In addition, the flexibility of Linux permits for better optimization, which contributes to better site operation. Therefore, if you want maximum protection and server performance, then you should construct your site in such a way that it operates with a Linux-powered web server. This is not a hard thing to do, because the most widely used Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are fully consistent with Linux servers and are popular all over the Globe for being one of the best software programs for designing and handling sites. Sure enough, this doesn't imply that each and every web host that's using Linux will have administrators who are capable to appropriately administer a Linux web hosting server. Choosing the proper hosting provider is quite difficult today, since the majority of them do not possess the capability to appoint a professional, practiced web admin. A Linux web server that hasn't been accurately set up can be extremely hazardous to your site and private info. For that reason, when selecting a hosting distributor, it's always advisable to go with a bigger hosting supplier that's been in business for at least a few years.

How to identify the proper hosting company for my website?

These hosting distributors are easily identifiable by the manner in which they are providing their website hosting plans. Established hosting vendors provide custom-developed functionality, diverse open-source PHP-driven scripts or web apps. The most experienced, however, have even their own custom-created web hosting CPs developed particularly for their system. A website hosting CP is a web-based GUI, through which the user administers the entire web hosting service. Smaller web hosting suppliers avail of ready-made website hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to guarantee supreme security and performance for their web hosting services, the leading hosting suppliers provide their customers with their own personal in-house made website hosting CPs created by their very own admins. We, at 'Stable disks Hosting', don't merely provide our very own personal custom-made CP, but have also developed a free-of-cost open-source PHP-based script installation tool, which allows our clients to easily install any of the aforementioned open-source content management apps. Features such as these demonstrate that we have the capacity, the resources and the necessary experience to be entrusted with maintaining your private information private and your site - available on the World Wide Web.
