If you have decided to establish your very own personal site, but are not quite sure about what a web site is and are unfamiliar with the expression "website hosting", this article is devoted to clarifying these notions in simple English.

What exactly is a website?

A web site is an amalgamation of web pages brought together systematically. It has a special web address, also called a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). A site may consist of only one single webpage and sometimes may even be comprised of as many as one thousand webpages.

What is a web hosting server?

A hosting server permits you to upload your website onto it. In some cases, there might be even 1000's of web sites on one single web hosting server. The hosting server basically is a computer with specific hardware, which is kept in a datacenter facility with special cooling systems, whose mission is to safeguard the seamless performance of the server and all the websites hosted on it.

In short, a hosting server will be indeed a launching pad when the time comes for you to launch your web site. It could be any sort of website - a business website having a huge number of webpages, or a site, which contains only a few webpages and which you have made simply for your comrades and family members.

You've decided what your website will be, now what?

Once you have reached a decision about what kind of site you wish to build, the next move is to find out what kind of web hosting service you have to choose for your Internet adventure. Basically, there are two kinds of hosting services - charge-free web hosting services and paid website hosting services. The cost-free website hosting solution is ordinarily utilized by customers that do not have a business-related site.

Pluses and minuses of the free-of-charge website hosting solution

You will not obtain lots of features with a free-of-cost website hosting package. Features such as web traffic, RAM memory and data space are limited and insufficient for an elaborate e-store or a business site, or even for a web site with a lot of artwork. Moreover, there are a lot of adverts put on your web site by the hosting plans provider. These ads take up a lot of space on your site and are extremely irritating.

Shared website hosting

The paid shared website hosting services are more stable and offer plenty of sophisticated features aside from the high-powered web hosting server that will host your site and its content. In spite of that, it is important to know which features your web site demands prior to buying your web hosting plan. You should not hurry and wind up purchasing something that your web site does not demand.

Choose your hosting accounts provider

It is not hard to find a hosting provider. You have to simply conduct an online search in order to find a web hosting supplier that fulfills your web site's requirements. Before you make your actual choice, examine the features of the web hosting plans provided by the hosting companies that have attracted your interest. We, for example, are among the top-notch hosting providers on the marketplace at the moment. The big range of web hosting services and our prices are what renders us an enticing option. In spite of that, you must ascertain what type of web hosting service you need and whether the price matches your budget. Furthermore, you must always remember to check the hosting service provider's Terms & Conditions prior to subscribing to make certain that your site is not violating them.

Opening a hosting account

Once you have found out what features are most important for your website, the next move is to open an account with the web hosting plans provider of your choosing. You will obtain all the essential tools for handling your files and databases. With us, for instance, you will receive a hosting Control Panel, which includes domain name, website, database and email box account administration sections. You log into the hosting Control Panel using a unique username and password, which gives you safe access to the portion of the server where your web site will be located.

Uploading your site

You can either upload your web site files through an FTP program or, as is with the majority of hosting distributors, through a web-based tool that is integrated within the hosting Control Panel. With us, the File Manager is very easy to use and offers features similar to those found in Windows Explorer, which makes file management extremely easy. We offer also a website builder and a PHP script installer, which you can utilize to create your web site if you have no programming skills and are making your first steps in web design. The web-based web site building tool, dubbed SiteStudio, will also spare you the time and effort of creating a web site on your PC and then uploading it through an FTP client or the File Manager tool.
