Having your own personal website is a requisite today. The entry of the World Wide Web in our daily lives denotes that, in order for somebody to get seen, or to make his opinion heard, one needs to establish a site and take it online. In order to fulfill that, you actually demand two things - a site and a hosting solution. Before establishing a web page, though, it's essential to understand that there are separate kinds of web hosting services and that not all websites can function with a randomly selected shared hosting. In order to explain this better, let's start with the primary topic:

What is Web Hosting?

Hosting, or also famous as 'web hosting', is a name that refers to the actual web hosting server, or the hosting distributor that offers the web hosting server. A server is a computer that's connected to the Internet and that's configured to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which permits the users to upload their website files on the web hosting server and to make them visible on the web. There are two principal varieties of servers, on the basis of the OS of the web hosting server - Windows and Linux. The two Operating Systems are very dissimilar and, in most instances, not at all compatible with one another. So, prior to choosing the relevant solution, one should first find out what type of web hosting server is needed for their site.

If you haven't created the web site yet, then let's take a more exhaustive look at the difference between the two types and at what their upsides are.

What platform should you pick - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are software apps, which are only consistent with a specific Operating System. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not function on a Linux server. Hence, if you intend to develop your site utilizing any of the above, you should be seeking a Windows service. Windows, however, is not open-source software, which means that it offers limited opportunities in terms of server safety and privacy. That is the reason why, Linux is favored by web server admins worldwide and most hosting suppliers use it on their web servers. Utilizing Linux, the administrator can configure the web server in a wholly modifiable way, and if the web hosting server is appropriately configured, it can guarantee full defense against computer hackers and malicious software. Besides, the customizability of Linux allows for greater software optimization, which brings about better website performance. For that reason, if you are looking for utmost protection and web server performance, then you should construct your web site in such a way that it works with a Linux-based hosting server. This is not a hard thing to achieve, because the most popular Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are completely compatible with Linux web servers and are popular all over the Globe for being one of the best software platforms for designing and administering sites. Sure enough, this doesn't mean that each and every hosting company that's using Linux will have admins who are able to properly administer a Linux web hosting server. Choosing the right hosting service provider is very hard today, as most of them do not possess the capability to hire a competent, practiced web admin. A Linux hosting server that hasn't been correctly configured can be very hazardous to your website and personal details. Hence, when picking a web hosting corporation, it's always recommendable to settle on a solid web hosting company that's been in business for at least several years.

How to spot the appropriate hosting supplier for my website?

These hosting vendors are easily identifiable by the manner in which they are distributing their web hosting services. Practiced hosting providers offer custom-built functionality, different free PHP-based scripts or software apps. The most experienced, though, possess even their very own custom-built CPs developed especially for their system. A Control Panel is an online-based user interface, via which the customer handles the whole web hosting account. Smaller-sized web hosts use pre-built hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to guarantee utmost protection and performance for their website hosting services, the biggest companies supply their clients with their own personal custom-built CPs made by their own administrators. We, at 'VerdeHost.com', don't only offer our own personal custom-built Control Panel, but have also set up a free-of-charge open-source PHP-driven script installation tool, which permits our customers to effortlessly activate any of the aforesaid open-source CMS scripts. Specifications like these demonstrate that we have the ability, the means and the experience to be entrusted with preserving your personal information confidential and your site - available on the World Wide Web.
