Companies today are looking for ways to keep their Web site, data, and purpose-driven software secure and readily available without downtime. Previously, companies were able to manage items themselves, either with their own servers or individual computers. However, with ever-larger amounts of data, the need for efficient Web sites, and large, purpose-driven software, cloud hosting services have helped solve these storage problems.
Companies that sell or lease server space for consumers to access the Web site of an individual or business are considered Web hosts: They host all of the information on their secure Internet servers. Space on servers can range from simple, small files to a complex package of databases and platforms. What you need is ultimately determined by you.
Virtual server hosting is a frequently used method of Web hosting service. Virtual servers distribute online resources with other virtual servers; however, they are not dedicated servers to run software. Unlike dedicated servers, multiple virtual servers can exist on the same computer rather than needing a different workstation for each server.
