When it comes to selecting the right hosting solutions provider for your website, several factors have to be considered. Regardless of the company you choose, basically they provide the four different hosting options:
Non Virtual Hosting
This means that you don’t have your own domain name your site is hosted on someone else’s server otherwise known as parking your site on another domain. In this case your website address would look something like this e.g. www.astrangehost.com/yourwebsite or www.yourwebsite.astrangehost.com
Virtual Web Hosting
This is one of the most popular options. In this option, you own your own domain name (www.yourdomainname.com) but you keep your site on someone else’s server. Because you own your domain name, your site visitors are not aware that your website is on someone else’s server or a dedicated server.
In this option, the hosting company maintains the web server and any software and support are maintained by the hosting company.
With this option, you purchase and own the hardware and software and rent a space / rack from the hosting company. This option is best left for mission critical online application or companies that have the neccessary human and financial resources to maintain same.
