|Web hosting is an online program for people to store
information, videos, pictures, etc. Web hosts provide space for
customers on the internet in order for them to create web pages.
Generally, web hosts are only adequate for personal home pages,
as larger, more intricate sites require more complex packages
with database support and development platforms. Most people get
there start using free hosting however, free web hosting is very
limited when compared to paid hosting, since they have a small
disk space, and require you to have your own ads on your site.
Shared hosting is paid hosting where your site is on the same
server as many other sites. Some problems with shared hosting is
that if something goes wrong with one site, it effects all of
the other sites as well. There are also a few restrictions with
shared hosting, although these are not even close to how limited
free hosting is.
Dedicated hosting is paid hosting which can be quite expensive.
You will have your own server with dedicated
hosting, and there are virtually no restrictions. Dedicated
hosting is more expensive than shared hosting because there is a
never ending supply of addresses for dedicated hosting. However,
hosting requires you to have an http server certificate, FTP
access, and a domain server name. If you are just starting out
with creating web pages, most people would recommend using free
hosting at first. After upgrading to shared hosting, you can
then decide if dedicated hosting is for you.
