Web hosting is a very important element for any website or blog. Your website is nothing without web hosting.
Web hosting is like a home for any website that contains all the data stored on their servers (HTML, documents, images, videos, etc.)
Web hosting is a company that gives their servers storage on rent for others websites, and these servers stay online on the internet every day and night so that other people can access your website at all times.
There are two types of hosting
01. free hosting
02. paid hosting
01. Free hosting
In free hosting, you have many limitations. In free hosting, you are not given any guarantees of the uptime of your website, which means that in free hosting, they can shut down your website anytime without any reason. Well, this is less if you choose trusted hosting companies like – WordPress and Blogger (Google)
Wordpress and Blogger are the most popular free hosting companies. Besides, Bohot is a company that offers free hosting.
In this, you have to use the domain which they will give you. Just like your website’s domain is www.yourdomain.com then in Blogger you will be given a domain name like www.yourdomain.blogspot.com or if you are running your website in WordPress then you will get www.yourdomain.wordpress.com. You do not have any more choice in this.
Apart from this, there are also many companies that provide free hosting to the paid domains but they also have some limitations.
I will personally not recommend in free hosting.
02. Paid Web Hosting
There are 4 types in Paid hosting
01 Shared Hosting
02 Virtual Private Server Hosting (VPS)
03 Dedicated Server Hosting
04 Cloud Hosting
01. Shared Hosting
This is the hosting in which hosting companies stores all the websites on the one server. In this, all domain use common resources stored in it like Disk Space, CPU, RAM etc. and access to the server is also not given root access. Because all the websites are stored on the same server, due to the performance of the website is also reduced.
02. Virtual Private Server Hosting (VPS)
In this type of hosting, only one server is used to do it, but it is converted to a virtual server so that all the websites are stored in their dedicated virtual space instead of keeping them in one place. you are given a dedicated virtual server but in reality, it is also the same server. type of hosting user is given root access in his virtual space, but there are also many limitations. Most bloggers use similar plans.
3 Dedicated Server Hosting
This type of hosting has only one website. The entire server is given to a website. The user has full access to the server, In this hosting, a server is taken on rent, and only one website is stored in it due to this its performance is also good.
4 cloud hosting
Websites are given unlimited ability to control Cloud Hosting. In it there is a group of servers called Cloud, host the website. This is done with multiple services on the same website so that high traffic level control is done.
Some clouds do not give root access to the website so that the settings of the server cannot be changed, and this is the most expensive hosting.
