What is a Web Hosting? Types of Web Hosting Services.
Web hosting is a service that serves your website to anyone that visits it and is provided by a web hosting provider such as ETNHost. This service allows people to have access to a certain amount of the resources of a server (sometimes even the entire server), connected to the world wide web and thus being able to have their page/ website available to the public 24/7.
Types of Web Hosting :
1) Shared Web Hosting Service
the most common type of web hosting service
resources shared with other clients
managed by the provider (technical support; security and software updates)
2) Reseller Web Hosting Service
the client becomes a web hosting provider
the reseller sets the prices and the plans for their clients, within the resources provided by the initial web hosting company
the clients of the reseller are only clients to them and not to the wholesaler company
3) Virtual Private Server
Virtual machines that are equivalent to a dedicated physical server
managed service- the service provider manages the server in terms of system administration.
unmanaged – the client is in charge of the server's system administration, technical support and so on.
4) Dedicated Server
the client has access to an entire server and its full resources.
offers a larger scale of control, security, and higher performance.
5) Cloud Hosting
it's more of a service, rather than a physical product, where the websites are placed on a virtual server, that shares resources with other virtual servers.
the client can pay to receive a certain amount of resources, but can have access to more, if the website demands it at a certain time.
