Web Hosting Packages Description
Possessing your very own personal website is a must in modern-day society. The entrance of the Internet in our daily lives means that, in order for somebody to be seen, or to make his opinion heard, one has to establish a web page and bring it online. In order to fulfill that, you practically require two things - a web site and a hosting solution. Before constructing a website, though, it's crucial to comprehend that there are different sorts of hosting services and that not all web sites can perform with a randomly selected web hosting. In order to clarify this better, let us start with the main topic:
What is Hosting?

Hosting, or otherwise famous as 'web hosting', is a term that relates to the web hosting server itself, or the hosting provider that possesses the server. A hosting server is a computer that's connected to the World Wide Web and that's configured to work with PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc., which enables the clients to upload their files on the web hosting server and to have them published on the World Wide Web. There are two primary types of web hosting servers, depending on the Operating System of the server - Windows and Linux. The 2 Operating Systems are quite dissimilar and, in the majority of instances, not at all consistent with one another. That is the reason why, prior to choosing the appropriate service, one should first discover what sort of server is required for their site.
If you haven't constructed the site so far, then let's take a more exhaustive glimpse at the difference between the 2 types and at what their advantages are.
What service should you pick - Windows or Linux?
As pointed out, there are web applications, which are only compatible with a particular Operating System. For instance, JAVA scripts, .ASP pages, .NET Framework, Adobe ColdFusion are all Windows based and will not work on a Linux hosting server. Hence, if you want to set up your web site using any of the above, you should be looking for a Windows service. Windows, however, is not an open-source software platform, which suggests that it offers restricted opportunities as far as server safety and privacy are concerned. This is the reason why, Linux is preferred by web server administrators worldwide and the majority of hosting corporations use it on their servers. Using Linux, the admin can configure the server in a completely customizable way, and if the server is correctly set up, it can guarantee thorough safety against hackers and malware. Besides, the customizability of Linux allows for better optimization, which brings about better website functioning. Therefore, if you are looking for utmost safety and web server performance, then you should construct your site in such a manner that it works with a Linux-based hosting server. This is not difficult to do, because the most widespread Content Management Systems, also known as CMSs, like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Moodle, and so on, are fully consistent with Linux web servers and are famous all around the world for being one of the best web application frameworks for devising and managing sites. Certainly, this doesn't imply that each and every hosting provider that's using Linux will have admins who are able to properly run a Linux server. Picking the correct web hosting firm is quite problematic nowadays, because the majority of them do not have the ability to employ an able, trained web admin. A Linux hosting server that hasn't been accurately configured can be highly dangerous to your web site and private details. Therefore, when selecting a web host, it's always recommendable to select a well-established provider that's been in business for at least several years.
How to identify the proper web hosting distributor for my website?
These web hosting vendors are easily identifiable by the manner in which they are delivering their web hosting services. Established web hosting vendors offer custom-developed features, different free open-source PHP-powered scripts or programs. The most practiced, though, possess even their own custom-created website hosting Control Panels created particularly for their platform. A hosting CP is a web-based graphical interface, through which the user manages the entire web hosting service. Smaller service providers utilize pre-made Control Panels such as cPanel or DirectAdmin. In order, however, to ensure utmost safety and efficiency for their services, the biggest web hosting vendors furnish their clients with their own in-house built website hosting CPs made by their own administrators. We, at 'HOSTROBO', don't only offer our own custom-made CP, but have also created a free open-source script package, which permits our clients to effortlessly activate any of the abovementioned content management software apps. Specifications such as these certify that we have the capacity, the resources and the experience to be entrusted with preserving your personal information confidential and your web site - visible on the World Wide Web.
