Web Hosting - The Fascinating World of the World Wide Web!


Visitors: 164

A single page web hosting is generally sufficient only if the web page is for personal use. When we talk of multiple pages web hosting, it is a very complex process. A complex website should contain a database support and also an application development platform based on PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, and ASP. NET. These kinds of applications platform help the customers or web surfers to write or install scripts for forums and application management and SSL, which is generally used for e-commerce based sites.

The companies that provide the space and the technical expertise to host a web page are known as the web hosting providers. The hosts at times also provide with additional services, such as, e-mail and search services along with the web page. There are many web hosting providers, who specialise in areas such as e-commerce. These sorts of providers are generally used by big companies and organisations, which outsource their online business transactions to these providers. But extreme caution must be exercised while choosing a web hosting provider for outsourcing the e-commerce work. The reviews found on the different search engines about these e-commerce web hosting providers, are often biased, as the reviews are written by their own affiliates.

Hosting uptime is again another important point, which a customer must take care of, while choosing a particular web hosting provider to host their page. Hosting uptime refers to the percentage of time; the host is accessible through the internet.

Most providers claim to have an uptime ranging from 99% to 99.9%. But the fact is that this percentage only refers to the percentage of time the server of the provider is powered, and not the actual percentage of time the server is accessible through the internet. There are often stoppages in the server functioning due to scheduled stoppages for maintenance and unscheduled stoppages for other unwanted problems. So, it is always better to verify the credentials of the web hosting providers, before depending on them.
