Know What Shared Hosting Is

 With the advent of e-commerce and emergence of many techniques of online money making, many of us are looking forward for opening web page for us. And when it comes to hosting a web page you are drawn in to the search for the perfect type of hosting that would suit you. It will be really crazy if you have to spend thousands of dollars for hosting a personal website, which you just have for getting involved into the web. And even for a small business the cost is quiet high. For such purposes the concept of ‘Shared hosting’ offers the perfect solution.

What is Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting refers to the type of hosting where there is server which hosts many different website that is a website does not individually have a dedicated server for its own purpose. Many websites share a specific server. To begin with this may sound slightly out of the normal, but see the cost factor involved with it, and the various administrative view of it, it may indeed be a concept welcome by many of them.

The types of Shared Hosting

The shared hosting can in itself be classified into two based on the way the sharing is implemented, as name-based and IP-based one. A name-based shared hosting is one where we actually have the different websites residing on the server to have the same IP, but are differentiated by the name that is ought by the client. This works fine under present standards, but if the client is using an older version, the guarantee is quite not there. The other type, IP-based shared hosting offers the solution to this problem as in this case each website has a separate IP for itself and the referral to a specific website indirectly refers to a unique IP. This is achieved by having virtualization done at the network level within the server, and the same server acts as the destination for many different IP. The second choice is the most favorable unless the context of hosting is perfectly suitable with the first one.

What are the advantages of Shared Hosting?

You can obviously see that shared hosting services many sites and so you are in for a less priced web hosting service, rather than the traditional single server- single site concept where the price involved is quite high. The other advantage is for the less techy friends who like to host a website. Everyone can’t be expected to know the administration specifics. In general the server administration is done by the provider, in the case of shared hosting. So the problem of dealing with server administration is taken off. The site administration through the interactive control panel is what the host has to do. But an experienced person will like to have a complete control over a server and in shred hosting this is not offered to him, as the server is shared by many sites.

The important thing after deciding to have a shared server is to decide upon the provider taking into account all the necessary and important factors.

Thus we see that Shared hosting as a hosting service where in many different websites share a single server, and this offers the option of reduced cost as an advantage to the one who is hosting. The slight side effect is that the extent of control expected by a pro may not be available if at all he goes for shared server.

Solar Panels to Generate Free Energy For Your Home

We all understand the impact that humans have on the planet and also understand that we cannot rely on big business to make the changes that are necessary. As a result more and more people are taking their energy needs into their own hands and building solar panels for homes.

A growing trend is for people living in the cities to move towards off grid or hybrid power systems in their homes. Whether they choose to have independent power supplies and only rely on the grid for times of low energy production or whether they have incorporated their systems into the grid in order to take advantage of the storage facilities that the grid offer, the motivation is the same…

To generate free, clean, renewable energy for their homes.

The only disadvantage of investing in solar energy is that if you don’t want to build the panels yourself, then you are still going to pay a premium price for these devices. For many people the idea of building their own panels is just too much to consider, but if you understand that the building process is no more difficult than making a stain glass window, with soldering being the most difficult aspect, then it becomes a much more accessible option.

Recently there has also been an upsurge in the number of people who are having homemade solar energy panels built for them by freelance diy enthusiasts. During difficult economic times, this is a very lucrative industry to get involved in and with the demand for panels on the rise, it’s an industry that is growing by the day.
