The basics of web hosting

Category: Technology

To put it into simple terms, web hosting is an intangible service. With so many web hosting services available, it can be hard to decide which company to go for when there is such a vast range of prices and services. In order to better understand the various price ranges available and to decide on the best decision, it is important to know some of the basics of web hosting.

Servers are the most important part of web hosting, therefore it is the highest expenditure. Except for LA colocation, the servers and equipment are owned by the hosting company. Sometimes, you might notice higher fees due to the constant upgrade cycle. However, this is a good thing as faster servers mean better performance.

Data Centers
The servers owned by the company will be located at many of the data centers that the company owns. This expenditure is included when you purchase web hosting plans. These buildings can host thousands of servers at a time and even some hosts will allow region selection like the LA data center.

Little do people know, but web hosting companies also purchase web hosting just like any organization would. This can save companies money, but methods like these can cause problems for the customer. For example, since connections need to be distributed among thousands of customers, there could be strict limits when using these servers and could incur charges for exceeding those limits.

Rack Alley is a provider of colocation and LA Web Hosting at their LA data center.
