Owning your very own personal web site is necessary in modern-day society. The entrance of the Internet in our daily lives denotes that, in order for someone to be seen, or to get his idea noticed, one has to establish a site and publish it online. In order to do that, you practically need two elements - a site and a hosting service. Prior to making a website, though, it's important to know that there are separate sorts of website hosting services and that not all websites can function with a randomly picked shared hosting. In order to explain this better, let us start with the chief question:

What is Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise famous as 'web hosting', is an appellation that relates to the actual web hosting server, or the web hosting distributor that manages the hosting server. A hosting server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's set up to use PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which allows the users to upload their website files on the server and to make them visible online. There are two major varieties of hosting servers, based on the Operating System of the server - Windows and Linux. The 2 OSs are very different and, in the majority of cases, not at all consistent with each other. For this reason, before choosing the right solution, one should first determine what kind of hosting server is needed for their web page.

If you haven't created the website yet, then let us take a more comprehensive glimpse at the difference between the two varieties and at what their strengths are.

What platform should you go with - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are web app frameworks, which are solely consistent with a particular OS. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not perform on a Linux web hosting server. Therefore, if you are looking to develop your website utilizing any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows platform. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which means that it provides restricted possibilities as far as server safety and privacy are concerned. That's why, Linux is preferred by server admins worldwide and most hosting service providers utilize it on their web hosting servers. Using Linux, the administrator can set up the web hosting server in an entirely customizable way, and if the server is properly set up, it can guarantee thorough safety against computer hackers and malicious software. Additionally, the customizability of Linux permits for better optimization, which brings about better site functioning. For that reason, if you are looking for maximum safety and web server operation, then you should construct your site in such a manner that it functions with a Linux-based web server. This is not troublesome to achieve, since the most widely used Content Management Systems, also famous as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are fully consistent with Linux web servers and are popular all around the Globe for being one of the best web application frameworks for making and managing websites. Of course, this doesn't suggest that each web hosting firm that's utilizing Linux will have admins who are able to correctly administer a Linux hosting server. Choosing the correct web hosting supplier is very troublesome today, since the majority of them do not have the capacity to engage a skilled, trained admin. A Linux web hosting server that hasn't been correctly configured can be quite dangerous to your web site and private information. Therefore, when picking a hosting distributor, it's always recommendable to go with an established provider that's been in business for at least a few years.

How to recognize the proper hosting service provider for my web site?

These hosts are easily recognizable by the manner in which they are supplying their hosting plans. Experienced hosting providers offer custom-built functionality, different PHP-driven scripts or web application frameworks. The most experienced, though, possess even their very own personal custom-built web hosting CPs made especially for their platform. A hosting Control Panel is an online-based tool, via which the customer handles the entire web hosting account. Smaller web hosting vendors utilize ready-for-use hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to guarantee supreme protection and performance for their website hosting services, the leading hosting service providers give to their customers their own custom-developed website hosting Control Panels developed by their very own administrators. We, at 'Realscape Web Hosting', don't merely offer our very own custom-designed CP, but have also created a free-of-charge open-source PHP-based script package, which enables our customers to easily activate any of the aforementioned content management software platforms. Features such as these are evidence that we have the capacity, the means and the experience to be entrusted with preserving your personal information private and your site - live on the web.
