Hosting is a service for providing space on a server and allocating predetermined resources to this server, with the condition that this server has permanent access to the Internet.

Types of hosting

  • shared hosting
  • virtual dedicated server (VDS)
  • dedicated server
  • colocation
  • cloud hosting

Shared hosting - many sites share the resources and space of one physical machine.

Virtual dedicated server - one physical machine is divided into many virtual ones, which are completely isolated from each other. Use virtualization technologies.

Dedicated server - a physical machine that is defined only for one user and is completely under his control.

Colocation - you host the server yourself, and the hosting provider provides you with space, cooling, power, and an Internet connection. In this case, server administration is yours, but delegation of this authority is also possible.

Cloud hosting is similar to a virtual dedicated server, but without resource limitations.
