Having your very own private site is mandatory today. The entry of the Internet in our daily lives denotes that, in order for somebody to become seen, or to make his opinion heard, one needs to develop a site and take it online. In order to achieve that, you in fact demand 2 things - a website and a hosting solution. Prior to creating an online portal, though, it's necessary to understand that there are distinct varieties of hosting services and that not all web sites can perform with a randomly picked web hosting. In order to clarify this better, let us commence with the central subject:

What is website hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise known as 'web hosting', is an appellation that relates to the actual hosting server, or the web hosting distributor that offers the web hosting server. A server is a computer that's connected to the web and that's configured to use PHP, MySQL, Perl, and so on, which allows the customers to upload their web site files on the web server and to have them published on the Internet. There are 2 primary kinds of web servers, depending on the OS of the hosting server - Windows and Linux. The 2 Operating Systems are quite different and, in most cases, not at all consistent with one another. So, prior to choosing the proper service, one should first examine what kind of hosting server is demanded for their online portal.

If you haven't set up the site so far, then let's have a more comprehensive glimpse at the difference between the 2 varieties and at what their strong sides are.

What service should you choose - Windows or Linux?

As pointed out, there are web apps, which are only consistent with a particular Operating System. For example, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not perform on a Linux hosting server. Therefore, if you would like to build your website using any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows service. Windows, though, is not open-source software, which indicates that it offers restricted options as far as server security and privacy are concerned. For this reason, Linux is utilized by web server administrators worldwide and the majority of hosting vendors use it on their web servers. Using Linux, the administrator can set up the web server in a fully modifiable way, and if the hosting server is properly configured, it can ensure thorough protection against hackers and malicious software. Also, the customizability of Linux permits for better software optimization, which brings about better web site operation. So, if you are looking for utmost protection and web server functioning, then you should build your web site in such a way that it operates with a Linux-powered server. This is not tough to fulfill, as the most famous Content Management Systems, also popular as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are completely consistent with Linux web servers and are popular all around the Globe for being one of the best platforms for designing and handling sites. Surely, this doesn't suggest that each host that's utilizing Linux will have admins who are able to properly administer a Linux web server. Selecting the right host is quite troublesome at present, since the majority of them do not have the capability to appoint a skilful, trained admin. A Linux hosting server that hasn't been correctly configured can be very hazardous to your web site and private details. Therefore, when selecting a hosting service provider, it's always recommendable to select a solid hosting distributor that's been in business for at least a few years.

How to recognize the correct hosting supplier for my site?

These hosting providers are easily identifiable by the way in which they are providing their web hosting services. Practiced hosting distributors provide custom-developed functionality, diverse free scripts or software apps. The most experienced, however, possess even their very own personal custom-designed website hosting Control Panels built especially for their system. A website hosting CP is a web-based dashboard, through which the client administers the entire web hosting service. Smaller hosting companies utilize pre-built Control Panels like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure maximum security and effectiveness for their services, the biggest companies furnish their customers with their very own personal in-house developed website hosting Control Panels devised by their own admins. We, at 'Intraden', don't merely offer our very own custom-designed CP, but have also set up a free-of-charge open-source PHP-based script software package, which enables our customers to easily activate any of the aforementioned content management platforms. Specs like these signify that we have the capacity, the means and the necessary experience to be entrusted with retaining your personal information confidential and your site - reachable on the Internet.
