Possessing your very own private online portal is very important in present-day society. The entry of the Internet in our daily lives denotes that, in order for someone to be seen, or to get his voice heard, one has to create a web portal and get it online. In order to accomplish that, you virtually require 2 things - a website and a hosting service. Prior to making a web portal, though, it's essential to have in mind that there are different kinds of website hosting services and that not all sites can operate with a randomly chosen hosting. In order to describe this better, let us begin with the prime theme:

What is Website Hosting?

Hosting, or also popular as 'web hosting', is an appellation that refers to the web server itself, or the web hosting distributor that owns the web hosting server. A web hosting server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's configured to support PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which allows the clients to upload their website files on the server and to have them published on the World Wide Web. There are two principal varieties of web hosting servers, based on the Operating System of the hosting server - Windows and Linux. The two OSs are quite dissimilar and, in most cases, not at all compatible with each other. Hence, before choosing the appropriate solution, one should first determine what type of server is required for their website.

If you haven't designed the website yet, then let us take a more detailed glimpse at the difference between the two types and at what their benefits are.

What solution should you go with - Windows or Linux?

As mentioned, there are web applications, which are solely consistent with a certain OS. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all based on Windows and will not run on a Linux hosting server. Thus, if you would like to set up your site utilizing any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows service. Windows, though, is not an open-source platform, which means that it offers restricted options when it comes to server security and privacy. Hence, Linux is favored by web server administrators around the world and most hosting vendors use it on their servers. Utilizing Linux, the admin can set up the web server in a completely modifiable manner, and if the hosting server is correctly configured, it can offer thorough security against computer hackers and malicious software. Furthermore, the customizability of Linux allows for better software optimization, which brings about better website performance. Hence, if you want ultimate security and server functioning, then you should create your site in such a manner that it operates with a Linux-driven web hosting server. This is not troublesome to fulfill, because the most famous Content Management Systems, also popular as CMSs, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, etc., are fully compatible with Linux web servers and are known all over the Globe for being one of the best frameworks for constructing and administering sites. Certainly, this doesn't imply that each and every web hosting distributor that's using Linux will have admins who are capable to appropriately administer a Linux server. Choosing the correct hosting provider is very hard nowadays, since the majority of them do not have the capability to hire a skilled, practiced web admin. A Linux server that hasn't been correctly configured can be quite dangerous to your site and private info. Thus, when selecting a host, it's always recommendable to opt for an established web hosting vendor that's been in business for at least a couple of years.

How to recognize the proper service provider for my website?

These companies are easily identifiable by the way in which they are delivering their website hosting packages. Practiced hosting suppliers offer custom-built functionality, diverse scripts or web app frameworks. The most practiced, though, possess even their own personal custom-designed hosting Control Panels designed especially for their platform. A Control Panel is a web-based tool, via which the user handles the entire web hosting account. Smaller web hosting suppliers make use of ready-made website hosting CPs like cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, though, to ensure utmost protection and performance for their website hosting services, the leading web hosting distributors furnish their customers with their very own in-house made web hosting Control Panels created by their very own admins. We, at 'ronin Web Services', don't merely offer our own personal custom-created Control Panel, but have also set up a free-of-cost open-source PHP-powered script installation tool, which allows our customers to easily install any of the mentioned open-source web content management software applications. Features such as these confirm that we have the capacity, the resources and the experience to be entrusted with maintaining your personal information private and your web site - available on the web.
