Website Host

In order for your website to be accessible by your visitors on the Internet, you need to host it with a web host, i-e a company that has web servers connected to the internet 24×7. Web hosting companies have thousands of such servers in data centers.

Those servers can be dedicated to a specific site; these are called dedicated servers or shared between several clients and websites. This is called “shared web hosting“.

A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc. Server administration can usually be provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. In some cases, a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment. Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers, similar to colocation facilities, providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the provider and in some cases, they will provide support for your operating system or applications.

A hosting account located on a server with (often many) other hosting accounts and their resulting websites. Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. The features available with this type of service can be quite extensive.
