A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows
individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the
World Wide Web. Single page hosting is generally sufficient only 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, and ASP.NET). These facilities allow
the customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums and
content management. For e-commerce, SSL is also highly recommended. To
manage your website you also need control panel, AlfainHost is providing
cPanel & Plesk control panel which are leading control panels.
Hosting uptime refers to the percentage of time the host is accessible via
the internet. AlfainHost aim for at least 99.9% uptime (roughly equivalent
to 45 minutes of downtime a month, or less), but there may be server
restarts and planned (or unplanned) maintenance in any hosting
environment, which may not be considered part of the official uptime
Shared web hosting service: one's website is placed on the same server as
many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds or thousands. Typically,
all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and
the CPU. The features available with this type of service can be quite
extensive. A shared website may be hosted with a reseller. AlfainHost main
goal is to keep the minimum ratio of websites per server.
