If you have decided to establish your very own web site, but are not quite certain about what a web site is and are not aware of the expression "web hosting", this article is dedicated to clarifying these notions in simple terms.

What precisely is a website?

A web site is a collection of web pages brought together in a systematic fashion. It has a unique web address, also referred to as a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). A web site may include only one webpage and sometimes may even be comprised of as many as a thousand web pages.

What is a hosting server?

A hosting server permits you to upload your web site onto it. In some cases, there might be even thousands of websites on a single web hosting server. The web hosting server essentially is a computer with specific hardware, which is held in a datacenter with special cooling systems, whose purpose is to ensure the seamless functioning of the server and all the websites hosted on it.

To sum up, a hosting server will be really a launch pad when the time arrives for you to launch your website. It could be any sort of site - a corporate site containing multiple pages, or a site, which is comprised of just a couple of web pages and which you have built simply for your associates and family members.

You've reached a decision about what your website will be, now what?

As soon as you have made a decision about what kind of web site you wish to launch, the next step is to discover what sort of web hosting service you have to pick for your online adventure. Basically, there are two kinds of website hosting services - free-of-cost web hosting services and professional paid web hosting services. The free website hosting solution is usually utilized by individuals that do not have a business site.

Positive and negative sides of the charge-free hosting solution

You will not obtain many features with a charge-free website hosting package. Features like bandwidth, RAM memory and web hosting server hard disk space are limited and inadequate for a complex web store or a business web site, or even for a website with plenty of graphics. Moreover, there are lots of banner commercials incorporated in your website by the hosting distributor. These ads occupy plenty of space on your website and are extremely irritating.

Shared website hosting

The paid shared website hosting services are more reliable and offer plenty of powerful features in addition to the high-quality hosting server that will accommodate your website and its files. Nonetheless, it is essential to know which features your web site demands prior to buying your web hosting package. You should not hurry and wind up spending money on something that your web site does not require.

Pick your hosting accounts provider

It is not tough to find a hosting services provider. You need to just carry out an online search in order to find a web hosting supplier that meets your web site's demands. Before you make your actual choice, take a glimpse at the parameters of the hosting plans supplied by the hosting distributors that have grasped your interest. We, for instance, are among the best web hosting vendors on the market these days. The wide variety of hosting solutions and our prices are what makes us an enthralling option. Still, you must confirm what type of web hosting solution you need and whether the price fits your allowance. Moreover, you must always remember to check the web hosting service provider's TOS before registering to verify that your web site is not violating them.

Opening a website hosting account

Once you have found out what features are most important for your website, the next step is to open an account with the hosting solutions provider of your preference. You will gain all the needed tools for handling your website files and databases. With us, for instance, you will obtain a Control Panel, which is comprised of domain, web site, database and email mailbox management sections. You log in the Control Panel using a unique user name and password, which grants you secure access to the part of the web hosting server where your website will be located.

Uploading your website

You can either upload your files via an FTP program or, as is with the majority of hosting service providers, via an online tool that is included within the web hosting Control Panel. With us, the File Manager is rather easy to use and offers features similar to those found in Windows Explorer, which renders file management extremely easy. We offer also a web site builder and a PHP-driven script installer, which you can utilize to create your website if you possess no programming abilities and are making your very first steps in web design. The web-based site builder, whose name is SiteStudio, will also spare you the time and effort of making a website on your computer and then uploading it using FTP client software or the File Manager interface.
