Server Hosting

October 3rd, 2010 Comments off

When looking at high end web hosting, you’re likely to be looking closely at dedicated hosting which means web hosting services such as VPS server hosting and dedicated server hosting services. Server hosting is generally the highest form of web hosting available from most web hosting providers and is indeed the highest form of leasable web hosting service available. VPS server hosting and dedicated server hosting services are both able to offer you a dedicated hosting environment that will allow you some sort of isolation from other users, although the form factor of both is different with VPS servers being virtual machines whilst dedicated servers are physical servers. Server hosting can be expensive but the one thing to remember is that if you aren’t able to justify the cost of a server hosting service, it is possible that a cheaper form of web hosting may be more appropriate for your requirements. Server hosting services are a lot more customizable than lower end forms of web hosting, thus allowing you to get good value for money as you can select the exact resource assignments that you require meaning that you will only be paying for what you actually need and not resources that you aren’t going to be using.

Business web hosting services are designed to maximize uptime and to improve the web hosting experience of businesses that rely on their websites to bring them a source of income. Business web hosting services generally endeavor to offer up to 100% guaranteed uptime using a number of different methods, the most popular of which is clustered web hosting as this offers a pretty much fail-proof solution. Business web hosting will also guarantee you a higher level of support from your web hosting company, which will benefit if you ever happen to face any issues with your business web hosting package, although your web hosting provider is also likely to offer you assistance with the setup of your web hosting package if you require it. As web hosting providers want to offer their business customers the best web hosting experience possible, when ordering business web hosting you may be required to provide your chosen web hosting company with some sort of proof of your business position; although this may seem over the top at first, it helps web hosting providers to ensure that they are providing business web hosting only to those that have a distinct need for it and not spammers or hackers that could go on to abuse the hosting server.

Reliable web hosting services will allow you to make the most of your web presence and will allow you to get on with tasks that may be more important to you and the running of your business. The definition of a reliable web hosting service is usually one that is available at least 99.9% of the time, with a 0.1% downtime allowance per month; however, there are web hosting services available that can offer 100% guaranteed machine uptime. There are several different factors that can affect the reliability of a server; as well as the reliability of the machine itself, you need to consider the network that your server is hosted on as well as its source of power. Web hosting providers generally use several different connection providers in order to ensure that their servers will always be available from the internet, although they can never guarantee the reliability of their internal networks but these are usually the easiest to monitor. In any professional data centre, there will also be several different power sources in use to make sure that there’s a backup available if the main power line fails; backup systems such as UPSs (uninterruptable power supply) and diesel generators are examples of secondary power sources.
