  • Web hosting types

    There are many different Web Hosting options available. Three of these are Shared Hosting, Managed Hosting and Colocation Hosting. This article looks at these three hosting options and there advantages and disadvantages.

    SHARED HOSTING

    Shared Hosting is where different sites share a server provided by a hosting company. This is the most basic hosting option and also the cheapest.

    The main selling point of shared hosting is the cost. As the server is shared between different servers the hosting company can split the cost between all of the clients using the server. This option is suitable to small businesses that do not have the requirements of a more advanced type of hosting. Multiple software options are available with Shared Hosting.

    There are restrictions though. The flexibility of other hosting types are not available. There is restriction to the amount of bandwidth available. The amount of bandwidth and RAM that is available is shared between all of the sites sitting on the server and therefore is limited. Although there is technical support there is a limit to the amount of support clients will get from the hosting company.

    Due to the price, Shared Hosting is the best option for many businesses. If it is only basic web hosting that is needed, shared hosting is sufficient. For those who require more from their hosting, though, the service provided by Shared Hosting may not be enough.

    MANAGED HOSTING

    With Managed Hosting a client leases an entire server from the hosting company. Therefore they effectively have their own server to host their site on. The server is still owned by the hosting company but it is not shared with any other websites.

    Managed Hosting is most suitable for large websites that expect a high amount of traffic or require large databases. It is much more powerful than a shared server and there are almost an unlimited amount of software solutions. The amount of bandwidth available is also much higher. The client can have multiple domain names on the server if required. One of the main selling points is that the client has full control over the server, although there is still support available from the hosting company.


    One of the main disadvantages of Managed Hosting is that it expensive. As a whole server is being rented, the cost is quite high. More knowledge is also required when compared to Shared Hosting. Although there is much support available, knowledge of hosting is required to get the most out of Managed Hosting.

    COLOCATION HOSTING

    Colocation is when a client has their own server, but they store it at a colocation centre owned by the web hosting company. Colocation host’s rent rack space for companies to use for their servers. In many ways it is the same as a client hosting their own website except the server is stored elsewhere.

    Colocation has many of the same advantages as if the client hosted their own website. They own the server so they can do with it as they please. They have full management of the server. With Colocation there tends to be high bandwidth availability and high uptime, although it is still limited compared with Managed Hosting. Colocation centres have high security and a controlled environment suitable for hosting needs.

    Price wise Colocation is quite expensive, although cheaper than Managed Hosting. A client has to purchase their own server and then rent rack space on top of that. The skills level required to run the server is high. As the client owns the server they have to sort out any problems themselves and the support available is fairly limited, although there are sometimes packages available which come with support.

    Colocation is mainly for anyone who wants to run their own server but do not have the space or budget to run it from their own premises. They therefore can store it at a Colocation centre, while still being in control.

    Free Hosting

    Some ISPs offer free web hosting.

    Free web hosting is best suited for small sites with low traffic, like personal sites. It is not recommended for high traffic or for real business. Technical support is often limited, and technical options are few.

    Very often you cannot use your own domain name at a free site. You have to use a name provided by your host like http://www.freesite.com/users/~yoursite.htm. This is hard to type, hard to remember, and not very professional

    Shared (Virtual) Hosting

    Shared hosting is very cost effective.

    With shared hosting, your web site gets its own domain name, and is hosted on a powerful server along with maybe 100 other web sites.

    Shared solutions often offer multiple software solutions like e-mail, database, and different editing options. Technical support tends to be good.


    Dedicated Hosting

    With dedicated hosting, your web site is hosted on a dedicated server.

    Dedicated hosting is the most expensive option. This option is best suited for large web sites with high traffic, and web sites that use special software.

    You should expect dedicated hosting to be very powerful and secure, with almost unlimited software solutions


    Collocated Hosting

    Collocation means "co-location". Collocated hosting lets you place your own web server on the premises (locations) of a service provider.

    This is pretty much the same as running your own server in your own office, only that it is located at a place better designed for it.

    Most likely an ISP will have dedicated resources like high-security against fire and vandalism, regulated backup power, dedicated Internet connections and more.

      I think by "Managed Hosting" you mean Dedicated Server. Managed hosting is available in each catagory as an added service.

                    Colocation is when you install your server hardware at a datacenter. Contrast this to dedicated where the datacenter owns the server hardware.

                    Colocation is cheaper than dedicated (generally speaking) since you are using your own server.

                      Several different kinds of web hosting are available online. These include paid hosting, free hosting, file hosting, and dedicated hosting. Free hosting will never provide as many features as paid hosting. For example, some file formats would not be supported by free hosts, and they will not provide as much memory space.

                        Our free hosting is full-featured. But we do put a small text ad at the top of the web pages. Never say "never."

                          Shared Web Hosting
                          Shared or virtual hosting by far the most common form of webhosting.
                          [ More on shared web hosting ].

                          Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting
                          Want control over your hosting environment but don't need the resources of a dedicated server? VPS hosting might be right for you.

                          Dedicated Web Hosting
                          Web sites that require all the server resources are best served by seeking a dedicated web hosting solution.
                          [ More on dedicated web hosting ].

                          Managed Web Hosting
                          Managed web hosting takes the dedicated model of service to higher level by provding support services for the web servers.
                          [ More on managed web hosting ].

                          Server Co-Location
                          When nothing but your own hardware located will do, you can find hosting companies that will host your server at their data center.
                          [ More on server co-location ].

                          Reseller Web Hosting
                          If you have a network of websites or want to resell web hosting services to other, a reseller account can be a good start.

                          Free Web Hosting
                          As the old saying goes, "There is no free lunch". The same goes for web hosting but if you can live with with limited web space, banners, popups, and other restrictions you can get certainly find "free" hosting.

                            Where you keep your Web page is called "hosting". There are all different types of hosting options, from very expensive commercial Web hosts, to free Web hosts.

                            In order to work on your Web page, you need a hosting option. You can find free hosting alternatives on my site and on the Personal Web site at About.com.

                            Finally, you can use your own hosting service through your ISP. Contact your service provider for more details about how to put Web pages up there.
