It is quite common for companies to prefer to hire web server providers such as BIZ-LYNX Technology to rent web servers. Bigger businesses can also opt to own their servers because they have a bulk of crucial information that they need to send in and out of the organisation and also because they can also afford to.
There are four main types of web hosting offered by BIZ-LYNX Technology and are explained below:
1. Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting
A VPS hosting server divides the server into several virtual servers where the websites are hosted on a shared server, but still, the customer has the benefits of a dedicated server. The solution is most ideal for organisations that want greater control over the server activities but are not ready to spend a big amount on investing on a dedicated server. This gives them the best of both the worlds.
2. Dedicated Server Hosting
A dedicated server affords maximum control to the customer organisation. A dedicated server, in other words, means a separate server for the company’s private use only. This hosting service is best for businesses that have a lot of traffic, and the nature of the firm is such that they cannot afford any downtime or minor speed. For example an E-commerce site.
3. Cluster Server Hosting
The Cluster server hosting service gives the company an unlimited ability to handle high traffic and traffic spikes. In cluster server hosting, a group of the servers known as cluster work together to host a group of websites allowing multiple computers to work together in tandem to handle higher traffic levels for the site. The only downside of this service is it can cost a lot of money when compared to other hosting services.
4. Shared Web hosting
With shared multi tenant hosting, a lot of websites are on a single server. The numbers can range from a few to few hundred, and all the domains happen to share a common pool of resources like the RAM and the CPU. The service is economical for companies especially for start ups and those websites that are expecting to pick up in traffic only henceforth. Shared web hosting is the most common form of website hosting and often uses and interface such as CPANEL to provide customers access to their own website traffic logs, website tools etc.
