Hosting Plans Explanation

Hosting is a kind of online service that permits individuals and businesses to render their websites accessible on the web. Hosting service providers are companies that offer space on a web hosting server physically located in a data center and guarantee uninterrupted service uptime.

Where do you start?

The World Wide Web has become a key part of everybody's everyday agenda. It offers you the ability to make some cash on the side, but can also be a major source of income. In order to incorporate advertisements on your site or to advertise a product that you sell, you invariably need a hosting solution, which will make sure that your web portal is safe and constantly available. But how do you find one that is inexpensive and yet reliable enough?

The solution web hosts have come up with is called shared web hosting. With the shared web hosting solution, numerous hosting customers are accommodated on one and the same web hosting server. There are harsh restrictions on the resources that each shared web hosting account can in fact make use of, thus ensuring that they do not interfere with each other. The shared hosting solution offers decent performance and is cheaper than, let's say, a dedicated hosting web server, which is utilized by just one user. The shared web hosting solution enables hosting corporations to offer their clients modest prices. It typically includes user-friendly hosting Control Panel software, as is the case with the server that we at Malta Hosting provide, and allows everyone to administer their web sites without bothering about server installation and maintenance tasks, which are entirely taken care of by the hosting service provider.

VPS hosting

With the VPS hosting solution, on the other hand, you share a physical server with other private virtual server clients, but you are allotted a dedicated share of the system resources. The VPS web hosting server solution is the middle ground between the much more affordable shared web hosting solution and the more high-priced dedicated web server hosting solution, and is a very appropriate option for anyone who desires to build, for instance, a live streaming site or a community portal. The circumstance that you need to deal with the server configuration settings and software updates yourself is somewhat of a downside, but this could also be a great advantage if you really need to implement some server configuration modifications - something that would be unthinkable on a shared hosting server.

Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are in most instances much more expensive than shared or private virtual server hosting solutions. You might wonder why would anyone want to use a dedicated server then? The answer is quite simple. If your corporation has a large-scale site, or simply has very specific web server architecture and safety requirements, the proper option would be a dedicated web server that you or your server admins can manage directly. For somebody who is prepared to invest in safety and dependability, the higher price is of no concern. You are given complete root access and can utilize 100% of the dedicated server's system resources without anyone else using these resources and meddling with your online portals.
