Having your own private web portal is a requisite in modern-day society. The fusion of the Internet in our everyday lives signifies that, in order for somebody to be seen, or to get his voice heard, one has to construct a web portal and bring it online. In order to fulfill that, you actually require two things - a site and a hosting solution. Prior to constructing a website, however, it's vital to comprehend that there are separate sorts of web hosting services and that not all sites can perform with a randomly picked web hosting. In order to explain this better, let's commence with the main theme:

What is Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise famous as 'web hosting', is an appellation that relates to the hosting server itself, or the web hosting company that owns the web 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 enables the customers to upload their files on the web hosting server and to make them visible on the web. There are 2 principal kinds of web hosting servers, determined by the OS of the hosting server - Windows and Linux. The two OSs are very dissimilar and, in most instances, not at all consistent with each other. Thus, before picking the suitable solution, one should first check what kind of server is demanded for their web page.

If you haven't created the web site so far, then let's take a more detailed look at the difference between the two varieties and at what their upsides are.

What platform should you pick - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are applications, which are solely consistent with a certain OS. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not function on a Linux web hosting server. Therefore, if you aim to build your web site using any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows solution. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which signifies that it offers restricted options as far as server safety and privacy are concerned. That is the reason why, Linux is preferred by server admins worldwide and the majority of hosting corporations use it on their web hosting servers. Utilizing Linux, the administrator can configure the web hosting server in an entirely modifiable manner, and if the hosting server is correctly set up, it can offer total protection against computer hackers and malware. Additionally, the customizability of Linux allows for greater software optimization, which results in better web site performance. For that reason, if you are looking for ultimate protection and server functioning, then you should construct your website in such a way that it functions with a Linux-powered server. This is not a difficult thing to fulfill, since the most popular Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are completely compatible with Linux web servers and are famous all over the Globe for being one of the best web apps for constructing and administering web sites. By all means, this doesn't suggest that each web hosting firm that's utilizing Linux will have admins who are able to properly manage a Linux web hosting server. Choosing the right hosting supplier is quite hard today, because most of them do not have the capacity to employ a skilful, trained web administrator. A Linux web server that hasn't been appropriately set up can be highly hazardous to your site and personal info. Thus, when choosing a web hosting company, it's invariably advisable to select a bigger company that's been in business for at least several years.

How to identify the correct host for my web site?

These hosting service providers are easily detectable by the way in which they are offering their website hosting packages. Established service providers provide custom-developed features, various free scripts or software apps. The most experienced, however, possess even their own custom-built hosting CPs built particularly for their system. A hosting Control Panel is a web-based panel, via which the customer handles the whole web hosting service. Smaller-sized web hosting firms utilize ready-to-use website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to guarantee maximum safety and performance for their services, the leading hosting suppliers provide their customers with their very own personal in-house developed web hosting Control Panels built by their very own administrators. We, at 'Hosting Domain', don't merely provide our own personal custom-developed Control Panel, but have also created a free-of-charge open-source script software package, which permits our customers to effortlessly install any of the aforementioned open-source CMS platforms. Specifications such as these confirm that we have the ability, the means and the experience to be entrusted with preserving your personal info private and your web site - reachable on the Internet.
