So you’re looking to learn about web hosting and what it has to offer or you may not know much about web hosting? There is no shame in not knowing this information. Everyone has to start at the beginning at some point. On that note, let’s begin learning about web hosting.
First off, what is web hosting and how does it work?
Web hosting is the business practice of providing space and bandwidth on a high-powered computer server that is connected to the Internet at very high speeds. Hosting companies maintain large networks of high-powered web server computers in a physical location known as a data center. These computer servers are connected to a very fast, and generally redundant, Internet connection. The data centers have primary and backup power, a fast connection to the Internet, and a security monitoring staff.
The web hosting companies provide a share of disk space and available bandwidth to a customer for a monthly fee. Once the customer is signed up, they can upload files to their personal space on the web server and the information is then viewable to anyone interested on the Internet. The monthly fee the web hosting company charges is much less than what it would cost to run a server out of your own home or data center. This is the reason these companies exist. They take care of all the hardware, software, and other technical needs for you.
Types of web hosting
There are many different types of web hosting offers, but the main three are shared, reseller, and dedicated. Each type of hosting is for a different purpose.
Shared Web Hosting
Shared web hosting is the most popular form of hosting. Shared hosting is a portion of disk space and bandwidth provided to you by the web hosting company on a high-powered server. There are many other web sites hosted on this server, and the hosting company is likely to have quite a few of these servers in a large data center. The resources of the server are shared by as many other websites as are allocated to that computer.
Shared web hosting is the best form of web hosting if you are looking for a great price and don’t have more than a couple thousand daily visitors to your site.
Reseller Web Hosting
Reseller web hosting is a popular, low-cost solution to starting your own web hosting business. There are two types of reseller hosting, private-label and a reseller of services.
The private-label is the best type of reseller plan because it allows you to retain full control over your customer’s websites. A private-label plan allows the reseller to keep the full monthly payment of the web-hosting customer, but the reseller must pay a monthly fee to the larger hosting company for the reseller space. The more hosting accounts a private-label reseller can sell, the higher the profit for them. Private-label hosting allows you to host many more websites than if you were using shared hosting for each. This is a great solution for someone who has many sites they need to host in one location to save money.
The reseller of services plans resell the regular web hosting plans of a larger web hosting company, but you get a discounted price for providing the customer and earn a monthly fee for as long as they remain a customer. This plan does not allow control over customer web sites and you only keep a portion of the potentially monthly revenue.
Dedicated Web Hosting
Dedicated web hosting is the most powerful and cost effective solution of hosting a busy web site without resorting to buying your own equipment and paying hundreds of dollars per month for a fast Internet connection. Dedicated hosting consists of single server with no one else hosting on that computer. This allows for the greatest of configuration options. Anyone who has a busy website will find dedicated hosting is the necessary choice.
Web Hosting Considerations
Wondering about all the other information listed in web hosting plans? In this section, I will explain the most important considerations in choosing a good web host.
The price of web hosting services is one of the most important. There are many hosting companies out there with cheap hosting packages, but they may be lacking in other areas. Don’t let the price of a hosting package fool you. There are some hosting companies out there who have great prices and the other features are just as good. Price may be one of the most important decisions of a web hosting plan, but there is much more to consider in choosing a quality web host.
Disk Space / Storage Space
Disk space is the amount of physical storage space a web host gives to you to store your web files. Hosting companies these days have plans with disk space being measured mostly in terms of gigabytes, but some are still offering plans in the megabytes for storage space. Depending on your needs for file storage space, you may need more or less. Generally the more disk space offered the better.
Bandwidth / Data Transfer
The amount of bandwidth available can make a big difference in choosing a quality hosting plan. In general, the more bandwidth a hosting company makes available to you, the better. This means you can support more traffic to your web site as your business grows. Be wary of web hosting companies that offer unlimited or unmetered bandwidth. While many of these are legitimate offers, there are some out there who are overselling their bandwidth in hopes the average user won’t use much.
In any business, it is very important to provide exception customer service. Web hosting is no exception to this. Many of the hosting companies are available all day and night in case you have a problem with your web site, but there are some who are just available specific hours of the day. If your web site goes down in the middle of the night when they’re not available, this means lost revenue for a business. You should make sure the web host you select is always available for support.
Money Back Guarantee
Most web hosting companies will provide a thirty-day money back guarantee. Some will provide one even long, but be wary of the ones who offer no money back guarantee. I would not purchase web hosting services from a company who does not offer at least a 30 day money back guarantee, unless they have proven themselves to be a leader in the industry and have an excellent reputation.
An operating system is a piece of software that controls the interaction between the computer user and the physical hardware of the machine. A vast majority of all web sites on the Internet run on the Linux operation system. Linux is generally much more stable than Windows. Stability is critical in running a web site. For this reason, I prefer to host my web sites on the Linux operating system. Some sites have specific requirements that only the Windows operating system can satisfy, but there are always alternatives to those requirements.
A good web hosting company will have a regular schedule to backup the data on all the web servers. The more often the data is backed up, the better. At the very least, a web hosting company should backup web site files daily.
The control panel is the point of contact the web site administrator will have between the host server and their own machine connected via the Internet. It is essential to have a well organized and easy to use control panel interface. My favorite control panel is cPanel, which is one of the leading web hosting control panels out there today. Plesk is another good one, and many companies will create their own control panel for you to use. Most web hosting companies will provide a link to a demo of the control panel they use with their hosting plans. The control panel used is a matter of preference, but it should be user friendly.
Email is essential part of communication on the Internet. Most web hosting companies out there will give you more email addresses and more space to hold email messages than you will ever need. What you need to watch out for are the companies that have decided to be a little strict on their email accounts and only offer a small number or a small amount of message space.
Uptime is a term used to describe how often the average web site hosted by a company is available online. No company should be expected to provide an exact 100% uptime. This is impossible due to things such as hardware, software, and power failures. A vast majority of the companies are very good with uptime, and they guarantee it. It is still a good idea to be conscious of the uptimes posted by the company. If it is not at least 99.5%, it is probably not worth hosting with that company.
As a webmaster, it is nice to know how many visitors you’ve had, where they came from, how long they stay on your site, and how much bandwidth they’ve used. This information is collected by the web server and is placed in a log file. A statistics software package can read this data and provide meaningful information to the webmaster. The information gathered from these logs can be very valuable in improved services to the viewers of the web site.
FTP stands for file transfer protocol. It is a way of quickly uploading or downloading many files to and from a web server. Most web hosting companies will allow their customers access to their web hosting accounts via FTP. FTP is very useful and is a great feature to have when paying for a web hosting account.
A database is a place to store data that can be used in a large variety of ways. Databases are used on the Internet for applications such as shopping carts, message boards, and product catalogues. The more databases the web hosting provider allows you to create, the most applications you can deploy on your web server. Databases are used by the more advanced web master, but information is freely available online should you be interested.
Web hosting can be a very difficult decision with the many thousands of hosting companies out there. It is critical to find a plan that fits your needs and to have a good hosting company. I hope this article was useful in making your decision about which company to host with. Happy Hosting!

http is hyper text transfer protocol which is responsible for transmitting and receiving information across the Internet where as https is secure http, which is used exchanging confidential information with a server, which needs to be secured in order to prevent unauthorized access.
HTTP is Hyper Text Transport Protocol and is transmitted over the wire via PORT 80(TCP). You normally use HTTP when you are browsing the web, it’s not secure, and so someone can eavesdrop on the conversation between your computer and the web server. HTTP can support the client asking for a particular file to be sent only if it has been updated after a certain date and time. This would be used if the client has already retrieved a copy of a file by that name from that server, but wants to check to see if it has been updated since then. The server responds either with the updated file, with a message to say the file has not been changed, or with a message that the file no longer exists.
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer or HTTP over SSL) is a Web protocol developed by Netscape and built into its browser that encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server. HTTPS is really just the use of Netscape’s Secure Socket Layer (SSL) as a sub layer under its regular HTTP application layering. (HTTPS uses port 443 instead of HTTP port 80 in its interactions with the lower layer, TCP/IP.) SSL uses a 40-bit key size for the RC4 stream encryption algorithm, new-age browsers use 128-bit key size which is more secure than the former, it is considered an adequate degree of encryption for commercial exchange. HTTPS is normally used in login pages, shopping/commercial sites.
How it Work
Https is not a separate protocol, but refers to the combination of a normal HTTP interaction over an encrypted Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) transport mechanism. This ensures reasonable protection from eavesdroppers and (provided it is implemented properly and the top level certification authorities do their job properly) man-in-the-middle attacks.
The default TCP port of an https: URL is 443 (for unsecured HTTP, the default is 80). To prepare a web-server for accepting https connections the administrator must create a public key certificate for the web-server. These certificates can be created for Linux based servers with tools such as Open SSL’s ssl or SuSE’s gensslcert. This certificate must be signed by a certificate authority of one form or another, who certifies that the certificate holder is who they say they are. Web browsers are generally distributed with the signing certificates of major certificate authorities, so that they can verify certificates signed by them.
Dedicated to HTTP protocol, show a wide range of HTTP related information, request and response header, content, sent and received cookies, stream, query strings, post form values…
Request builder, Users can handcraft an HTTP request by using the HTTP Request Builder, or they can use a drag-and-drop operation to move an existing request from the session grid to the Request Builder to execute it again.
Hex Viewer allows users to view and edit binary files in hexadecimal and textual format. New
“Before request and after response” browser cache comparisons
Support HTTPS, show you unencrypted data sent over HTTPS / SSL connections, HTTPS is available if the application uses the Microsoft WININET API (ex. ie, outlook) or Mozilla NSS API. (ex. firefox, thunderbird)
Selectively clear caches and cookies which are related with HTTP/HTTPS sessions

If you have a domain name(s) that you’ve registered how much
thought have you given to who else might want the name? That
question crossed my mind only in the context of – do I have a
name that others might like to buy or one that could potentially
drive traffic to a website. I was registering many domain names.
Some names I wanted to use myself, some to keep, hoping they
would go up in value, and others to sell as soon as I could find
a buyer. Most of the names I had made up – until it had become
difficult to think of new names that had meaning and were not
very long. When that happened I started registering expired
After accumulating several hundred names I decided to take a
break and pondered my next move. I didn’t have to wait long.
Within a week I received a notice from my registrar. It seemed a
registrar in Germany had someone who was transferring one of my
domain names to their account. How could they get away with
that? That was my first experience of having someone steal a
name from me. I had heard of such things, but experiencing them
first hand is much more real.
I quickly emailed my registrar and asked what was going on and
that I had not given anyone permission to take one of my names.
I was told my domain had already been transferred to someone
else. I gave my registrar explicit instructions to cancel the
transfer, which they did immediately, and as soon as I got the
name back they placed a lock on the domain so it could not
Confident I had solved the problem, that incident quickly left
my mind, as I had a myriad of other things to do. But no -
things never seem so easy, as I came to realize a couple of
weeks later. I checked my email and there was an email from that
same registrar, where two weeks earlier someone tried to
transfer my domain name. It was a form letter in both English
and German telling me they were transferring my domain name to
their registry. I asked a co-worker who was German to translate
the German language part. She verified that language said the
same as the English version. All my domains were locked so there
was nothing I had to do.
By now I wondered how my name, ~~~~fix.com*, which I made up,
could be so important. I did some quick research on the Internet
and found there was a company in Germany with the name ~~~~fix.
It was starting to aggravate me that if someone wanted my dot
com version of the name why didn’t they just make me an offer
for the name. It seemed awfully suspicious that someone wanted
that name so badly that they would try to transfer it when it
was plainly up for sale. The directory website where that name
was hosted showed a for sale notice along with a price.
I quickly composed a letter and emailed it to that registrar
expressing my thoughts. I also raised the price of the domain
name once I had sent the email. Because I was upset about the
matter I decided to raise the selling price by a factor of ten.
I never received a response from my email and assumed the matter
Well, to make a long story short I received three more emails
within the next three weeks, each with attempts to get me to
transfer my domain name to them. The emails included dubious
documentation and said “You must agree to enter into a new
Registration Agreement with us”. I ignored all attempts to sign
away my domain name to the other registrar.
The last four attempts to get me to surrender my domain name all
occurred just after ICANN changed the rules pertaining to domain
names. That new ruling took affect November 12, 2004 making it
easier (in my opinion) for someone to sneakily transfer a domain
name. With the current new rules it seems all you have to do is
not respond to your registrar within five days of them sending
you notice indicating your domain name is being transferred. If
you happen to be on vacation, not respond to your email quickly,
or overlook such email, you may find yourself short a domain
name. If however, your domain name(s) is locked, then you
shouldn’t have to worry about that problem. My impression is
that many registrars are now locking domain names by default so
they cannot be transferred automatically, but you should check
yours to be sure.
All this fuss over a domain name I made up got me thinking about
my rights to my domain name. I checked the Anticybersquatting
Consumer Protection Act, signed by President Clinton, November
29, 1999. I’m no lawyer, but it does not look favorable for me,
even though I made up a name I did not think anyone else had.
I’ll let you the reader check the law and come to your own
There has been no further action on that domain name and it has
been two and a half months since the last attempt to transfer it
away from me. Is this the end of that saga?
* I’ve left out the first few characters for my protection.
Contact me if you must know the exact name.

We are a small Commercial Real Estate firm that is looking for an affordable and dependable solution to backup our server off-site. We have 140 GB of information on our Windows 2003 server, but probably only need to backup about half of that so we will need a company that also allows us to select what we want to backup. I looked into companies like Iron Mountain, but they come in around $750/mo, which is far from affordable. Any suggestions?
Yes, you can find much more cheap solution.
