Owning your own private web page is necessary today. The fusion of the World Wide Web in our daily lives implies that, in order for somebody to be noticed, or to make his opinion heard, one has to make a web page and publish it online. In order to accomplish that, you actually need two things - a site and a hosting solution. Before setting up a web page, though, it's crucial to have in mind that there are distinct sorts of web hosting services and that not all web sites can operate with a randomly selected shared hosting. In order to describe this better, let us commence with the primary issue:

What is Hosting?

Hosting, or also famous as 'web hosting', is a term that relates to the actual server, or the provider that offers the hosting server. A hosting server is a computer that's connected to the Internet and that's set up to support PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which permits the customers to upload their web site files on the web hosting server and to make them visible on the web. There are 2 principal types of servers, on the basis of the OS of the server - Windows and Linux. The two OSs are very different and, in most cases, not at all consistent with one another. This is the reason why, before selecting the proper solution, one should first check what type of web server is necessary for their online portal.

If you haven't developed the website so far, then let us take a more exhaustive look at the difference between the two types and at what their pluses are.

What solution should you go with - Windows or Linux?

As pointed out, there are software programs, which are only consistent with a certain OS. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not function on a Linux server. Thus, if you would like to build your web site using any of the above, you should be seeking a Windows service. Windows, however, is not an open-source software platform, which indicates that it provides limited options as far as server security and privacy are concerned. For this reason, Linux is utilized by web server administrators around the world and most hosting distributors use it on their web hosting servers. Utilizing Linux, the administrator can configure the web server in an entirely customizable way, and if the server is properly configured, it can ensure complete protection against hackers and malicious software. What's more, the flexibility of Linux allows for better software optimization, which results in better website functioning. Therefore, if you want ultimate protection and web server performance, then you should develop your website in such a manner that it works with a Linux-powered server. This is not hard to accomplish, because the most commonly used Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully consistent with Linux web servers and are famous all over the world for being one of the best web application frameworks for making and administering websites. Certainly, this doesn't imply that every hosting vendor that's utilizing Linux will have administrators who are capable to properly run a Linux server. Picking the proper hosting firm is quite difficult at the moment, as most of them do not possess the capacity to engage an accomplished, experienced administrator. A Linux server that hasn't been appropriately configured can be quite hazardous to your site and personal information. Thus, when choosing a hosting service provider, it's always advisable to choose an established hosting corporation that's been in business for at least several years.

How to recognize the correct web hosting distributor for my site?

These web hosting suppliers are easily identifiable by the manner in which they are supplying their website hosting packages. Experienced hosting distributors offer custom-developed functionality, different free scripts or web application frameworks. The most practiced, however, possess even their very own custom-developed CPs devised particularly for their platform. A web hosting Control Panel is a web-based interface, via which the client handles the entire web hosting account. Smaller hosting firms avail of pre-developed website hosting Control Panels like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure ultimate safety and efficacy for their web hosting services, the biggest hosting companies provide their customers with their very own custom-built Control Panels developed by their very own administrators. We, at 'Big Data HOST IT', don't only provide our very own custom-created CP, but have also developed a free PHP-based script package, which permits our customers to easily install any of the mentioned content management apps. Features like these signify that we have the ability, the means and the necessary experience to be entrusted with preserving your personal info private and your website - visible on the World Wide Web.
