One of the most essential ingredients in creating a great website is to find a web host. A web host is a
company or individual who has a computer server that can store files of websites and can make these files

be available to people requesting for it in the Internet. These web hosts do not offer a single type of web

hosting but seven. Virtual or shared hosting is one of the first kinds of web hosting wherein the website is

linked to a single server that is also utilized by other websites. Another classification that is quite the

same as shared hosting is reseller hosting that allows the website proprietor to put up some hosting space

for trade.

                                                     Other than the two kinds of web hosting mentioned

                                                     above, there is also a third type which is named grid

                                                     or cloud hosting. Grid or cloud hosting is newly

                                                     invented and is characterized by the presence of so

                                                     many servers all linked to each other resulting to a

                                                     very big server. This is perfect for fast growing

                                                     websites since the host can just add more servers

                                                     when the need arises.

VPS or virtual private server is another kind of hosting that is characterized by one physical server that

acts like multiple servers. Freedom to be able to change the hosting settings at one's own discretion is

what VPS offers. Dedicated server is the web hosting classification that comes after VPS. One server that

can be totally altered by the web site proprietor is the most wonderful quality of this classification.

Another variety of web hosting is collocated hosting, defined as placing a personal server in a location

that has a service provider. By web hosting comparison high quality service is delivered to the company.

                                                       web host is its trustworthiness. Researching and

                                                       reading reviews are the perfect things to do to

                                                       should be practiced because there are times when

                                                       they fail to deliver to what they promise. The most
