Running your very own private web portal is crucial nowadays. The fusion of the Internet in our everyday lives implies that, in order for someone to get noticed, or to make his voice heard, one has to construct a web page and post it online. In order to accomplish that, you actually need 2 things - a website and a hosting service. Prior to establishing an online portal, however, it's necessary to know that there are different sorts of website hosting services and that not all sites can function with a randomly picked web hosting. In order to illustrate this better, let's begin with the principal topic:

What is Web Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise popular as 'web hosting', is a name that refers to the actual web hosting server, or the company that runs the hosting server. A web server is a computer that's connected to the Internet and that's set up to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which permits the users to upload their web files on the web hosting server and to publish them on the Internet. There are two major types of web hosting servers, based on the OS of the web hosting server - Windows and Linux. The two OSs are quite dissimilar and, in most instances, not at all consistent with one another. That's why, prior to selecting the appropriate solution, one should first find out what type of server is necessary for their online portal.

If you haven't set up the web site yet, then let's take a more exhaustive glimpse at the distinction between the two types and at what their strengths are.

What solution should you opt for - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are software applications, which are only compatible with a given OS. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not run on a Linux hosting server. For that reason, if you intend to make your site utilizing any of the above, you should be seeking a Windows solution. Windows, though, is not an open-source software platform, which suggests that it offers limited options in terms of server safety and privacy. Therefore, Linux is preferred by server administrators around the Globe and most hosting firms utilize it on their web hosting servers. Utilizing Linux, the admin can set up the server in a totally modifiable way, and if the hosting server is correctly set up, it can offer absolute safety against hackers and malicious software. What's more, the flexibility of Linux allows for better software optimization, which brings about better website functioning. Hence, if you are looking for ultimate protection and web server functioning, then you should design your website in such a way that it runs with a Linux-powered hosting server. This is not a troublesome thing to fulfill, since the most popular Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully consistent with Linux servers and are known all over the Globe for being one of the best software platforms for making and administering websites. By all means, this doesn't suggest that every web hosting firm that's utilizing Linux will have admins who are able to appropriately administer a Linux server. Picking the right hosting provider is very troublesome nowadays, because the majority of them do not have the ability to employ a good, trained web admin. A Linux web hosting server that hasn't been correctly configured can be very hazardous to your web site and private information. Therefore, when picking a hosting distributor, it's invariably advisable to select a bigger hosting company that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to recognize the appropriate provider for my website?

These web hosting firms are easily recognizable by the manner in which they are supplying their website hosting plans. Experienced hosts offer custom-developed features, different free PHP-based scripts or software programs. The most experienced, though, have even their very own custom-made hosting CPs designed especially for their system. A hosting Control Panel is an online-based graphical interface, through which the user manages the whole web hosting account. Smaller web hosting service providers utilize ready-to-use hosting CPs such as cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure utmost protection and efficiency for their hosting services, the biggest web hosting distributors supply their customers with their own in-house made website hosting Control Panels designed by their very own admins. We, at 'Host705', don't merely offer our very own personal custom-made Control Panel, but have also set up a free-of-charge script package, which enables our clients to effortlessly activate any of the mentioned open-source content management software apps. Specs such as these confirm that we have the capability, the means and the experience to be entrusted with keeping your personal information private and your website - reachable on the World Wide Web.
