A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. We provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. We also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data center, called co-location.

The scope of web hosting services varies greatly. The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web "as is" or with minimal processing. Many Internet service providers (ISPs) offer this service free to subscribers. Individuals and organizations may also obtain Web page hosting from alternative service providers. Personal web site hosting is typically free, advertisement-sponsored, or inexpensive. Business web site hosting often has a higher expense.

Single page hosting is generally sufficient for personal web pages. A complex site calls for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, ColdFusion, or ASP.NET). These facilities allow customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums and content management. Also, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is typically used for e-commerce. We also provide an interface or control panel for managing the Web server and installing scripts, as well as other modules and service applications like e-mail.

We help our clients to evaluate the requirements of their application to choose what kind of hosting to use. Such considerations include database server software, scripting software, and operating system. We provide Linux as well as Windows based web hosting which offers a wide range of different software. A typical configuration for a Linux server is the LAMP platform: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python. With the Windows hosting platform you may still choose from PHP, Perl, and Python but may also use ASP .Net or Classic ASP. In addition to the web hosting we can also provide other related services, such as email for their business domain, databases or multi-media services for streaming media. Web hosting packages often include a Web Content Management System (CMS), so the end-user does not have to worry about the more technical aspects.
