Types of web hosting services offered in Kenya
« on: July 25, 2016, 08:55:59 PM »
Okay so there are three common types of web hosting available to you. The first type is shared web hosting.  Shared hosting is like living in an apartment building. Shared hosting is a relatively cheap form of hosting.  For most web sites like living an apartment it often comes with all the necessities like Wordpress hosting, Web builders and email. You share facilities with many other people.  What you do in your apartment could affect other tenants or other web sites burning like surges in web traffic.
The second type of hosting available is virtual private servers.  Like a town home versus an apartment a VPS is bigger and gives you more control than a shared hosting account.
With the VPS you have control over nearly everything inside your walls.  You share the property’s certain services like processor usage.  You can now add walls and install whatever furnishings you like for example music streaming software for running a radio show assuming it all fits in your space so it's much more flexible than shared hosting. There are fewer residents on the property and throwing up big parties.
The other type of hosting is dedicated servers.  A dedicated server is like owning your own home.  It’s basically a box with all the computer bits in a remote track somewhere. Having a dedicated server is like owning a big house on a hill. The property is completely yours. You can move walls build a deck or put in computer terms that would mean buying as many resource upgrades as you can afford.
You can even hold parties as big as you want once again assuming you have the row in parking to handle like making sure you have the bandwidth from your ISP or Internet service provider to cope with your massive amounts of visitors but be careful you have to stay within the laws or those dreaded sys admins will show up again. There you go and that's what web hosting is all about
