Hosting a website

Wow! New things and something new to play with; a website! This is Converscity but the picture is of Netnewbe. The website I am learning to create and to see how hosting works and then to play with advertising and design in the future. However today the name of the game is hosting.

So let dive right on in. There are many hosting companies out there just do a search and you will find a whole sloe of them, read carefully what they have to offer and check around with friends or others as to which ones they suggest and why they like it. I am told that Host Gator and Blue Host are really great for word press.Netnewbe is hosted with Godaddy and it is on Google blogspot. They(Go daddy) do a lot of up sales of features that you may want like mobile app so, check to see if it is and add-on or it is included. With cell phones and tablets that is an important feature to have.

There are many many different types of hosting(clustered hosting grid hosting, video). However I am going to cover the three basic options for the website or a blog that we as common folk would want.

The internet is like a virtual world and on the world are streets homes, business and each has an address so in other words you have to own or rent space in this virtual world and the hosting providers are the real estate agents who rent and provide space for you.

They run and own powerful computer bigger and stronger than the ones we have at home they also specialize in high-speed connections and have better firewall protection. These computers are called servers and they store all your information, and the address(IP)(internet protocol) and files you have connected to your site.

They also provide domain registration and email services and auto responders in a simplified form. since the internet is a computer and computer talk to each other in math formations or data commands in this digital world. We need these hosting companies to identify and start devices and communicate with and in between other devices and computers.

The three options for us to use are shared hosting, dedicated hosting and free hosting. Most of us use shared hosting when we go to a hosting services. You and I and another group of people share the server. it is limited on bandwidth and storage but most times it is enough for the average website owner. The cost is affordable because it is shared by you and others however, it is less secure that the next hosting option.

The dedicated server is one that you are the only one using it and it is faster that the shared and free hosting options. It is more secure and it does cost more. People who use this dedicated server are people who have very large sites and they are very popular and they need a lot of disk space and they run a lot of scripts and need more cpu than the average joe Linda.
Now last but not lest is the free hosting they are the non critical sites and they offer you a sub-domain for use. The free word press,blogspot for blogs then the free hosting services like, Biz.nf, 50webs.com and freehostia.com examples of a free hosting. You pay nothing. The hosting services can add or subtract features and they are most times not transferable and ads are present with out your control and you have their location on the tail of your name.The three free hosting services provided above state they have no ads. but most do.

Next time i will give you some terms to muddle over so that when you go to the site you will need some steps if you are going to change a blog into a website. Until then here is a quote I think they are fun and chuck full of life lessons thoughts and wisdom. Smile.

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves and all things are bound together. All things connect.” Chief Seattle
