Hi guys,
The following information is for all of the novices in web hosting world.

1.Difference between shared hosting and dedicated hosting-The primary difference between dedicated and shared hosting is how the web server is used. With Shared web hosting, the web server is shared between many different websites. With dedicated web hosting, the web server is dedicated to your web site. Both services have their advantages and disadvantages.
Dedicated hosting is any day expensive than shared hosting.

2.What's the difference between Managed hosting and colocation hosting?


Managed hosting is similar to dedicated hosting, but you get more service and support. Specifically, the web hosting company will watch over your server, troubleshoot problems, perform regular backups, install patches, etc. The specific services offered by managed hosting companies vary, so make sure you account for this difference as you compare prices.

Colocation is a form of dedicated hosting. If you collocate a server, you provide the hardware and the colocation provider installs it for you in their data center. They take care of making sure that you have a consistent Internet connection and ensure that you have power to your server. You handle everything else with the server. You usually pay for the rack space (the space that your server takes up) and the bandwidth that your server consumes. Colocation is a service that is generally used by more sophisticated users.

What is Virtual private Hosting?
To overcome the bridge between shared hosting and dedicated hosting, comes the concepty of virtual private hosting. It still shares a machine or disk, but the web server software and indeed the entire operating system enviroment is usually isolated for each site in a virtual hosting enviroment. So, you might have a computer or disk with 20 sites on it, 20 different web servers for those sites, and 20 isolated operating enviroments. There is a better control of resource allocation and more enforceable distribution.

Do you need managed Hosting?

Before you think about managed hosting you will first need to decide whether or not you need a dedicated server. You will need a dedicated server if you have a high-traffic web site. If you only have a small web site with low traffic levels then a shared hosting arrangement should be fine. A dedicated server is more expensive to rent and more difficult to operate than a shared hosting solution but if your business depends on a steady service then you should seriously consider renting a dedicated server.

The only disadvantage with dedicated web hosting is that you will have to do a lot of the server administration yourself, and to do this you will need to possess some technical skills; hence the demand for managed hosting. If you fall into this category of needing a dedicated server but you need your host to provide system administration services such as security, firewalls, monitoring and reporting services, and data backup then most likely you will need managed hosting.

What should I look for in a managed hosting provider?

When choosing a managed hosting provider it is a good idea that your host provides the following qualities:

Reliable and fast support – a good way to find out the response rate and the quality of the services offered by a web host is to send them an email before you sign up with them. If you receive a good response from your web host then this should give you a good indication of the services they are offering.

Freedom – its important to have as much freedom as possible and having the ability to choose from a wide range of services is essential. With managed hosting you might decide that you don’t require firewall support, its important that your web host will provide you with the option of selecting exactly what you need and what you don’t need. Also having the ability to pay monthly is a huge advantage. It will be less of a drain on your budget and you can avoid any expensive yearly contracts.

Fast and reliable connection – You should find out exactly what sort of connection the web host has to the Internet. By asking the web host they should be able to send you their network and connectivity details, you might even be able to find this out on their web site.

Competitiveness
– When searching for a managed hosting provider it is important to do your research. Each web host will be offering different managed hosting services all at different rates, you might find that one web host may offer one attractive managed hosting service while another doesn’t. However, as many more web hosts are beginning to offer managed hosting, a new competitive market is developing and the prices for managed hosting are becoming much more affordable with many more services being offered

Managed hosting is ideal for the new online businesses person, looking to build a large online business, and wanting to avoid the extra time and resources spent in-house on managing their dedicated servers. In-turn, managed web hosting has provided a profitable outcome to many online businesses by preventing a waste of valuable resources spent on high skilled employees; months of staff training; and, costs of hardware and software.

How do you find Managed hosting packages?

Many web hosts who once provided only shared and dedicated web hosting are now beginning to offer managed services too. A good place to start looking for managed hosting is through web hosting directories and search engines, by doing a search for managed hosting you should receive a good list of managed hosting providers. Another key place to start is by contacting hosts who are offering dedicated hosting and ask them if they can provide a managed hosting arrangement as well.

Companies providing managed hosting will either offer managed hosting per item or in a pre-configured plan. Per-item managed hosting gives you the freedom to pick and choose what services you need or do not need; on the other hand, a pre-configured plan will include the dedicated server and the managed hosting services at a monthly fee.

Hello All

WHR: "What is IX Web Hosting’s perspective on the economy’s effect on the Web Hosting Industry?"

Jose: "Well, you really have to go back a couple of years to fully understand how we got where we are now. As we are all very much aware, the economy has been through some pretty sharp turns. The Web hosting business as a whole has directly seen the implications. Between 1999 and 2000, the web hosting market tripled, reflecting very clearly dotcom and telecom market plays. Dotcom's envisioned the Internet as the future of business and touted a world where brick and mortar would soon play a secondary role. Massive investment in e-businesses also prompted traditional brick and mortar companies to adopt online components in their business models." Read More

Hello,

thanks to all posting above, for clarifying all this matters to our forum members and visitors.

It was very needed, Glad you took the time to write and explain here.

I will suggest also that when trying to find a reliable web hsoting, web hosting provider you ask the provider to show to you the real servers they use or what network they are part of.

Once you see the servers live online! thru a web cam you will know who you are delaig with Wink
Be sure!


Regards"!
