Web Hosting Packages Description
Web hosting is a service that web hosting corporations offer so that you can put your website online.
How can people observe your website?
When you set up a site and you want other persons to view it, you will need to copy (or upload) it to a web server. If you attempt to make the website reachable on the World Wide Web by web hosting it on your own computer, there is no way for you to keep it up and running all the time, which is why website hosting services came into being.
How does web hosting work?
Hosting distributors provide you with disk space for your website on their high-power computers (web hosting servers) and ensure uninterrupted Internet connection. When somebody writes your website address (for example www.my-best-domain.com) in their web browser's address bar, they will be connected to the web server where they can explore the content of your site.
With the progress of Internet technologies, different types of web hosting services have appeared to meet the various needs of website possessors, including shared web hosting services, Virtual Private Server hosting services and dedicated server hosting services.

Shared hosting is the most common type of hosting, and is also the easiest to begin with. It is a service where one single web hosting server is divided between numerous web hosting users who are restricted by the CPU, bandwidth and server hard drive storage space quotas that they have been allotted. This form of web hosting is generally cheaper - you don't have to buy the whole web hosting server upfront, since it is shared among multiple customers, and the web hosting services provider can afford to provide much cheaper prices. It is also much easier to use - the web hosting server is pre-installed with all the necessary software and the hosting supplier handles all server maintenance tasks and software updates on your behalf.
The weakness of the shared web hosting solution is that you share the hosting server's resources with other web hosting account holders and if one web site becomes really popular it may influence (and slow down) all the other sites on that server, but the majority of hosting vendors, including us at Juwi Cloud, have security platforms in place that hinder that from occurring.
A definition of a website hosting service
Since shared website hosting is the most common form of web hosting, most hosting suppliers and web hosting users simply refer to it as hosting or website hosting. As there is an enormous rivalry on the website hosting marketplace, most hosting firms strive to provide affordable prices and gifts with their hosting services. We, for instance, offer different hosting plans and two billing options - monthly and yearly, depending on your budget. If you select the annual invoicing cycle, you will obtain a gift - one charge-free domain registration.
VPS hosting packages
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. The VPS hosting solution is basically the middle ground between the shared web hosting solution and the dedicated server web hosting solution. If your website outgrows the resources offered by your shared hosting account, a private virtual web server package is an appropriate choice. private virtual web server hosting account owners still share the hardware resources of the physical machine with other VPS web hosting account owners, but the physical machine is partitioned using a special virtualization technology so that each partition has its own guaranteed resources and can be configured almost like an actual dedicated web hosting server. The advantage is that the CPU and the RAM memory on a VPS are not shared. In addition, the virtualization software offers you much more autonomy to configure your virtual private web server, but it also presupposes a more advanced degree of technical know-how.
With the Dedicated Hosting solution, the user obtains a whole dedicated server and can use all its resources. The dedicated server hosting solution is the most reliable of all website hosting solutions and offers multiple configuration options - the dedicated hosting clients can choose the hardware and software specs that will fulfill their needs. Dedicated system resources and guaranteed performance are two reasons why a dedicated web server is an excellent solution for a heavy resource-absorbing business web portal, for instance - you will not share the dedicated hosting web server's system resources with anyone else and will get full root access. You will exercise full authority over the physical machine, which will enable you to make any server configuration changes that you might require. The downside of the dedicated web server hosting solution is that a more advanced level of technical competence is needed - unless you employ an IT specialist, you will be responsible for administering and configuring the dedicated web server. The dedicated server web hosting solution is also much more expensive, because the cost of the dedicated web server isn't shared between any other users.
A website hosting advice for beginner users
If you are just beginning to create your web site and need a website hosting solution to start with, the shared hosting solution remains the most suitable choice. If your website grows beyond your web hosting account's resources, you can usually upgrade. With us, for instance, this is very easy and does not necessitate migration of your data, since only the features of your website hosting account change. You can also upgrade your web hosting package to a more powerful one at any given moment without having to worry about the number of days left until expiration. What is more, if you finally reach the most powerful shared hosting package and still need more system resources (which is a good thing sometimes - it suggests that your web site's popularity has grown!), there always is the possibility to move to a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting solution without the need to swap web hosting providers.
