Cloud Hosting In Comparison With Other Types Of Services

May 25th, 2013 Comments off

Any internet hosting refers to one of the following types: shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated server, and more recently, the cloud hosting. Let’s look at what type of hosting services are different from cloud.

VDS hosting is the most affordable. In addition, it is worth noting that the virtual hosting has a different functionality and cannot withstand a lot of traffic. Cloud Hosting as opposed to virtual characterized by the ability to dynamically allocate resources of the physical server that provides a stable sites at any attendance. However, for cloud hosting, you pay for the resources that are utilized.

VPS as opposed to cloud hosting is a virtual dedicated server that allows you to install the necessary software, and does not depend on the resource intensity of neighboring hosts. But since the degree of server load varies over time, at certain parts of the day, such server resources are simply idle. Cloud hosting is different and works on hourly billing, the rate can be changed either manually or automatically. If your site is having less visitors, you can take the cheapest rate plan, if the counters attendance through the roof, you can rent a cluster server.

Dedicated hosting is located on a separate physical server and until recently represented the most powerful platform.

Thus, the characteristics of cloud hosting is ahead from traditional hosting for a lot of options.

A dedicated hosting environment is one which is isolated from other users, whether this is in a virtual environment or a physical environment. The design of a dedicated hosting environment is done to ensure that the actions of other users in their respective hosting environments aren’t able to impact on the performance of your website or hosting environment. Dedicated hosting environments are important for businesses looking to establish a web presence where reliability and security need to be abundant so that guarantees with regards to the safety and security of customer data can be provided.

Web Hosting Dedicated

Dedicated servers are the best example of dedicated hosting environments, primarily because you have full use of the hardware that forms your dedicated server and will only have to share this with someone else if you explicitly wish to. Host.co.in offers India dedicated servers of differing specifications that can run both Windows and Linux so that we can cater for businesses regardless of the technologies that they use to develop their IT infrastructure; we also offer custom upgrades for your dedicated hosting customers so that you can expand the use of your dedicated environment by adding extra resources.

Web Hosting VPS

A VPS Hosting server is slightly different to a dedicated server; even though you will have your own dedicated hosting environment and dedicated resources that are accessible by any other users, this is within the context of a virtual hosting environment and a physical hosting node that is shared with other VPS hosting users. VPS hosting was developed to be a more affordable way of accessing dedicated hosting, with the target audience being small businesses that would otherwise be unable to afford that costs that are associated with a dedicated server; this is evident with the low-cost VPS servers that are provided by Host.co.in. A VPS server can provide a dedicated environment with features such as:

Advantages Of Hosted Desktop And Desktop Virtualization

March 28th, 2011 Comments off

We know, mainly virtualization is connected with either Windows VPS or Linux VPS services, but as far as typical web hosting services are concerned from people’s point of view, they always think of number of websites on a single web server but in Desktop virtualization process it is not necessary to decrease number of computers and contract the things in to a single server. Reduction in the cost of infrastructure and management required to server maintenance is one of the most important feature of Desktop virtualization. Through manageable desktop environment, modified provision of systems and other devices of client side one can notice the benefit of Desktop virtualization and additionally the important factor like bandwidth is used in more improved manner. Upgrades are easily possible and available to servers in terms of storage and network stuff very easily.

A user uses data and applications from the similar server on which is running and streaming those applications and data, and this allows it to provide improved security to the applications as well as an improvement in transmission of desktop processed workload from client side to the hosted location. Adopting to virtualization also enable to client to split up any important or confidential data and applications and make it secure from any type of suspicious and unauthorized offends. Different level of security patches and permissions can be assigned to virtual machines by network administrators.

December 14th, 2010 Comments off

This is one of the most confusing question for many webmasters and it become difficult task to select a right type of hosting solution when the comparison goes on between VPS Hosting and Semi Dedicated Hosting. Its an easy task when VPS hosting is compared with Dedicated Hosting as webmaster has an clear idea about the balance to make between his budget and available features in these two. Semi Dedicated Hosting services raised to feel the gap between vps hosting and dedicated hosting. When VPS server are not fulfilling the technical requirement of a webmaster and he also can not raise enough budget to go for a Dedicated servers then Semi Dedicated server hosting is a great blessing for such webmasters. In this type of hosting services a single server is not provided to a single webmaster but that particular server is kept limited to very few dedicated hosting accounts to provide better efficiency and to optimize the resources provided to webmasters. The configuration of Semi Dedicated servers is also kept high for differentiating it from VPS Hosting.

Similar to VPS Hosting, Semi Dedicated servers also can set on both Linux and Windows platform. So far reliability of Semi dedicated hosting is concerned one can trust as much as he can do with Dedicated server hosting.

Dedicated Web Hosting

November 4th, 2010 Comments off

When upgrading from a shared web hosting package, your next choice of hosting service is likely to be a dedicated web hosting package, whether it be a VPS server or a dedicated server. Dedicated web hosting services provide you with your own dedicated hosting environment that is isolated from other users so that you can make the configurations changes that you see fit and install any applications or components that you need in order your website to be able to function correctly. Dedicated web hosting services are available form a variety of web hosting companies which enables you to find a dedicated web hosting service that not only offers you the resources you need, but is also incredibly affordable. A VPS server can still be seen as a form of shared web hosting because you are still going to be sharing the physical hosting node with other VPS servers; a dedicated server on the other hand can provide you with complete isolation away from any other users because you will be the only one managing your server. Both can provide you with the dedicated hosting environment that you require, although you will be able to a lot more with one than the other.

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.

VPS hosting VS dedicated hosting

September 29th, 2009 Comments off

There are two main types of hosting which are mostly opted by the the big business. Dedicated hosting and VPS hosting, both have their own pros and cons. Hosting generally is taken as a extra expense for web site, where businesses are dependent on the internet and they share business critical data on the internet, they have to choose the best type of web hosting. When you see the best type of web hosting, Dedicated server hosting is the best solution, VPS hosting is considered the second best in the web hosting. You can think this hosting as a dedicated servers and VPS servers.

The main difference in this two type if hosting is upon the type of servers it is based on. The type of setup is different from each other. Some main differences include disk space , bandwidth and the cost factor. Virtual servers can be small for some applications , so dedicated servers are preferred. In the cases where the companies have their own IT department, or they need a very huge disk space and bandwidth. VPS hosting Vs Dedicated Hosting

When we consider the virtual servers, here the arrangement is made where multiple servers are hosted on the same server and they don’t have to share the resources in the real sense even if they are hosted on the same server. No other web site can interfere in the others web sites data and are unknown of the other web sites which are hosted. It is as good as in the dedicated environment for the space and bandwidth they are allotted.

VPS hosting is the best alternative for the dedicated server hosting, in dedicated server hosting you get the whole server with huge amount of disk pace , with the bandwidth required, good memory, highest security, independence to install the software of your liking. VPS hosting as compared to the Dedicated hosting, has less space , less bandwidth. But it has the feeling of the dedicated environment. The speed has to be compromised in Virtual Servers, as the bandwidth is divided. If we compare the management of the servers, VPS is more complex than the dedicated servers and it is less expensive.

The dedicated server can be managed by the user as well as per the proficiency. If not the administrator can manage it remotely.  If you opt for the dedicated server then the user has a complete independence on the server and has the total control over the machine. With the dedicated server you can enjoy the maximum speed, high memory, good disk space and the best performance. For the larger sites this is the only best option.

We can conclude that the Dedicated server hosting is the best web hosting solution for any site around, however it all depends on the users sites requirement and budget. If the user want the second best compared to the dedicated hosting, and is ready to manage the speed and other concerns, VPS hosting is a good option for him.

Does Free Hosting Suits you? Paid hosting is always available

September 23rd, 2009 Comments off

With the growing number of web sites and blogs, hosting needs are growing. With this the people looking for the Free web hosting are not less. There are number of the Web hosting companies that allows Free web hosting, so the people get confused and may think why to pay for the hosting when they get it free. This is a very obvious question and can come into anybody’s mind.

Free web hosting services available include some of the good companies, offering a good flexibility. Some of the companies offer you a unique domain name and some of them require to put the domain name in the sub domain under the primary domain.( For Ex http:// Domain/sub_domain/ ). Some of the companies allow you to run the CGI scripts. Free web host have something in common that they provide limited disk space with 5 MB to 10 MB and keep this rules strict regarding the data transfer. Also it is mandatory to display the ads on your web site.

One of the most unliked thing about the Free web hosting is when they put the advertisement on the web site, they should allow some ads to be placed on the personal web pages. This is where your freedom is challenged, in the paid web hosting you are allowed to place any type of ads, generally pop-up are liked. Free hosting Vs Paid Hosting

As you are aware that in Free web hosting you are not provided with your own Domain name , this is one of the annoying thing, you don’t have your own distinct identity on the web, some companies do allow the distinct domain name, however with there own set of rules. Your site will be full of pop up ads.

As pasted above some of the companies allow you to run the CGI scripts, however the number of companies which allow this is very less. Most of the companies don’t allow you to install and run the CGI Scripts, however they can provide the pre-installed scripts such as Guestbooks, counters. If you really wish to have your own CGI scripts better is you should go for the Reliable Paid  host. You should check the policies of the hosting companies before going for the web hosting package, as the policies about the CGI scripts may vary from one hosting company to other hosting company.

When you have a fairly large web site and you have used a lot of graphics on your site, you will face many problems with the Free web hosting.Also some of the point listed above makes the people to switch to the paid hosting.

We can conclude that the web hosting you choose completely depends upon the hosting needs and requirements, if you have a relatively small web sites and don’t mind if they place a lots of ads on your site free hosting can suite you. One thing more about the Free hosting is that you are not in the control of your web site, it is good for keeping your web site alive on the internet. So if you go through some of the reviews , Paid hosting is what you will opt for. Paid hosting offers you what you want, a complete control on the site, no ads from the web host, CGI script, your own domain name, good amount of bandwidth and disk space. Also you will not have the different packages in the Free hosting as Dedicated hosting, VPS Hosting and Shared Web Hosting.
