As its name signifies, shared hosting is a solution, which involves hosting online content. There are different forms and types of web hosting, based on the goals and on the objectives. Nonetheless, they all are associated with hosting files, which, once hosted, are made accessible throughout the Web. A web host is actually a web hosting service that is connected to the World Wide Web and has its very own Internet Protocol address, which permits people to have access to it via the Internet. The web server's configuration and its system resources are dependent on the form of hosting solution it will be used for.

Based on the application, the professional hosting service may be:

File Storage Web Hosting - this type of hosting allows the users to keep their files on a certain hosting server. With the typical file storage hosting solution, the files that are saved may only be accessed by the client that's utilizing the service. This hosting solution typically includes backups of PCs , documents, personal files and even other web servers. This service may also contain given limitations in relation to the data storage and the root-level access. There may also be web traffic limits, but that is dependent on the particular web hosting service provider.

Warez Web Hosting - the so-called warez web hosting service is resembling the previous hosting service type. Even so, unlike the file hosting solution, the warez web hosting service is utilized for circulating licensed materials without being green-lighted by the license holder. To cut a long story short - it pertains to the illegitimate circulation of files and materials. There are multiple ways for this to be realized, but the two chief ways are - through plain HTTP downloading and through peer-to-peer connections. The first one involves either a particular website, or, most typically, just a directory on a server that's been made available for everybody to access it and thus download licensed files for free. The second method entails a P2P connection, making use of the so-called Torrent servers, via which people transmit files between each other. There are not many web hosting suppliers that allow such type of web hosting on their web servers, mostly due to all the judicial problems that it entails. Generally such websites are hosted on private dedicated servers that are registered by 3rd party corporations either in the Middle East or in Asia.

Electronic Mail Web Hosting - this solution is relevant with both shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting servers, depending on the customer's intention. If you want to run your very own personal SMTP mail server, then you will need either a VPS server or a dedicated web server that provides the access level required to accomplish such an operation. For conventional e-mail web hosting ends, however, you can avail of a plain shared web hosting account, to which you can point the mail exchanger records of your domain. This is not a service that's widely popular, since the website hosting and the email hosting services are being served by two separate servers, usually owned by different providers.

Shared Hosting - the most popular and frequently used hosting service at the moment. It's used for hosting web site files, whose sort is determined by the OS the web hosting server is running - Linux or Windows. Different types of files demand specific web hosting server OSs, or else they won't be displayed appropriately on the Internet. This kind of web hosting may impose web space and web traffic quota limits, server root access and central processing unit usage limitations.

Depending on the goals and on the objectives, the user should pick the sort of server that he demands for his work, and, of course, the web hosting provider that's going to supply it. There are different kinds of web servers, depending on the specs and the website hosting services that they offer. These are:

Shared Website Hosting Server - a shared hosting server includes a smaller quantity of system resources, which, of course, reflects on the price of the service. It can be used for hosting small size and medium sized web portals, which do not need huge amounts of server space and web traffic.

Semi-dedicated Hosting - they are based on the very same principle as the shared website hosting servers. Nonetheless, there are much fewer customers accommodated on the same web hosting server. Hence, each of them will enjoy a greater share of the web server's resources like RAM, disk space, bandwidth and CPU. Excellent for hosting enormous web sites that do not need server root access.

VPS hosting are excellent for middle scale online portals, which do demand root-level access to the hosting server's configuration files. Traditionally, there are a number of private virtual server accounts placed on the same physical server. In spite of that, each of them is autonomous from the other ones and runs its own Operating System.

Dedicated Hosting - a completely dedicated hosting server set up and accessed by you and only you. It guarantees a vast quantity of resources. It also offers root-level access, which renders it the optimal solution for any kind of website that necessitates a hosting solution.

The only question that remains is:

Which web hosting supplier should I opt for?

As already stated, there are just a few web hosts offering warez web hosting services because of judicial problems. Such web hosting providers are being shut down practically every month. Because of that, if you would like to establish such a service, you should do it on your very own personal computer. The shared website hosting solution is the most famous type of web hosting service. So, every website hosting corporation provides it. Not all of them, however, offer services such as virtual private web hosting servers, Semi-dedicated Hosting and dedicated web servers. Most of the smaller hosting suppliers do not have the resources demanded for offering those solutions. You can quickly identify such web hosts by the types of solutions that they are making available and by the manner in which they present them to the clientele. For example, some web hosts allow you to kick off with a low-end website hosting package and then upgrade to a more advanced one, if you consider it mandatory to do so. This is extremely convenient, since you do not have to transfer web portals between servers and there is no chance of facing outages due to all the complications that may arise.
