Hosting, or otherwise popular as 'web hosting', is an appellation that refers to the actual web hosting server, or the hosting company that owns the web hosting server. A hosting server is a computer that's connected to the web and that's set up to use PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which enables the clients to upload their files on the web hosting server and to make them visible on the World Wide Web. There are two main kinds of web servers, depending on the OS of the web server - Windows and Linux. The 2 OSs are quite dissimilar and, in most cases, not at all consistent with one another. This is the reason why, prior to selecting the correct solution, one should first learn what type of hosting server is required for their web site.

If you haven't made the site yet, then let us have a more exhaustive glance at the difference between the 2 types and at what their pluses are.

What solution should you go with - Windows or Linux?

As stated, there are apps, which are solely consistent with a specific Operating System. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not perform on a Linux server. Therefore, if you aim to set up your site utilizing any of the above, you should be searching for a Windows platform. Windows, however, is not an open-source platform, which means that it provides limited options when it comes to server security and privacy. That's why, Linux is preferred by web server admins around the Globe and the majority of hosting distributors utilize it on their servers. Utilizing Linux, the administrator can set up the web hosting server in a wholly customizable manner, and if the server is appropriately configured, it can provide total defense against hackers and malware. Furthermore, the flexibility of Linux allows for better software optimization, which results in better site operation. Hence, if you are looking for utmost protection and server functioning, then you should design your site in such a way that it performs with a Linux-powered web server. This is not tough to accomplish, since the most popular Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully compatible with Linux servers and are known all over the world for being one of the best web app frameworks for creating and handling sites. By all means, this doesn't suggest that each and every host that's using Linux will have administrators who are capable to correctly handle a Linux web hosting server. Picking the appropriate web hosting firm is very tough today, since most of them do not possess the capacity to hire a professional, experienced admin. A Linux hosting server that hasn't been appropriately set up can be extremely hazardous to your web site and private details. Thus, when picking a hosting vendor, it's always recommendable to choose a bigger web hosting service provider that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to identify the proper web hosting company for my site?

These web hosting corporations are easily identifiable by the manner in which they are delivering their services. Established hosting suppliers offer custom-built features, various free open-source PHP-driven scripts or applications. The most practiced, however, possess even their very own personal custom-invented Control Panels designed particularly for their platform. A website hosting Control Panel is an online-based GUI, via which the client handles the entire web hosting account. Smaller-sized hosting providers avail of ready-to-use website hosting CPs such as cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to guarantee maximum protection and performance for their website hosting services, the leading hosting suppliers supply their clients with their very own personal in-house built web hosting Control Panels built by their very own administrators. We, at 'The Kasper Group', don't just offer our very own personal custom-developed CP, but have also set up a free-of-cost PHP script software package, which enables our customers to effortlessly activate any of the mentioned web content management software platforms. Specs such as these prove that we have the ability, the resources and the necessary experience to be entrusted with retaining your private information confidential and your site - accessible on the web.
