A hosting is a hosting service for websites. Instead of hosting people, web hosting the contents of your website and your email so that they can be visited at all times from any device connected to the Internet. When you want to find out a file on your PC, that content is stored somewhere, it can be on the hard drive of your computer or a USB hosting gadget, among other things.

The same thing happens with the content of the webs, it must be stored somewhere and in order to be visited through the Internet it will have to be stored in a web server. A server is a computer set much stronger than a common PC, connected to the Internet 24 hours a day so that the contents it stores can be visited at any time. The server is the physical unit, the hardware, and from it different types of web hosting are offered: shared hosting, VPS, cloud, WordPress hosting, elastic hosting, etc.

How does web hosting work?

When you have a web hosting to host the files of your site, your visitors have the possibility to reach them through your domain. Domains are used to tell the browser what content you want it to show you. By typing webempresa.com in the address bar you are telling the browser that you want to see the content of our website. The browser will go to look for the contents of the cybersite to the hosting where it is hosted to show them to you, but how does it know which web hosting it should proceed to look for them? This is where DNS (also called Nameservers) come into play.

The different computers connected to the Internet do not locate each other by names, but use numerical codes called IPs to communicate. However… imagine if you had to remember an IP number for each website you wanted to know, it would be impossible! This is why the domain name system was developed, to make this task simpler and give us the possibility to use names (easier to remember) instead of IPs to roam the Internet. Each domain can be translated to an IP that will be the server where your content and email accounts are hosted. The DNS are responsible for making this translation feasible.

What types of hosting are there?

The main types of web hosting are shared hosting, VPS and dedicated servers.

Shared accommodation

Shared hosting is the most commonly used type of web hosting. In this way, the hosting accounts of different individuals are hosted on the same physical server, where they distribute elements such as RAM memory and the central processing unit. Within shared hosting there are also different types of services, depending on their configuration. The most common shared hosting on the market is a basic service, in which the different users distribute the server elements in such a way that the actions of one user’s account can affect the others. In Eveoinc we help you to select if this system is the perfect one for you and we advise you which is the right company for you and your business, just write us directly to contact us.

VPS Hosting

A VPS is a virtual private server. In this kind of hosting, individuals distribute the same physical server, but unlike shared hosting they do not distribute the elements. The physical server is distributed in a kind of watertight compartments by means of virtualization; and all these compartments would be a VPS with its own assigned and secured elements. Unlike shared hosting, the VPS guarantees not only the space and transfer consumption, but also the RAM and the central processing unit assigned to the service.

Elastic Hosting

Elastic hosting is a type of hosting that combines the virtues of a shared hosting and those of a VPS. In it we will share a physical server with other individuals, but we will have secured elements as in the VPS.

Cloud hosting

The cloud or cloud hosting is a type of web hosting that is given from an infrastructure composed of numerous servers working together. The service is distributed on different computers connected to the same network, forming the cloud. It is a type of hosting commonly used by companies with unstable claims, which have recurring variants due to high traffic peaks in different time cycles. The cloud gives them a high availability of elements and guarantees uptime against these variants of demand, through this configuration with the appearance of a cluster with load balancers.

Dedicated Server

A dedicated server is a type of web hosting in which a finished physical array is given to each client. The server is not shared with any other user, so all elements are accessible and secured for an exclusive client.
