Trades and businesses are expanding in India at a rapid pace. The inflow of Foreign Direct Investment and cash receipts from import-export activities has resulted in such an upsurge and hence has helped in boosting the economic growth of the country. To reach out to domestic and international clients, business organizations have set up their own websites where they can interact and transact with people and other related organizations online. This set up of websites has helped in eliminating the need to interact through post and telephone. These organizations need to make their websites accessible to all. This work is done through a unique process known as Web Hosting.

Provision of Excellent Web Hosting Services in the Country
Web hosting is a type of Internet hosting service which allows individuals and organizations to make their websites accessible through the World Wide Web. This work is done by Web Hosts. These are companies that reserve space on a server owned by clients or leased to them for use and provision of Internet connection in a data centre. These companies can also give data centre space and Internet connection for other servers located in their own data centre called collocation. The scope of web hosting varies a lot. The most basic step is web page designing and small-scale file hosting, where respective files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. With minimum processing, the files are transferred.
There are many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offering this service for free to subscribers. Individuals and groups can obtain Web Page hosting from different service providers. Hosting of personal websites is generally done for free or sponsored through advertisements or by incurring low expenses. But hosting websites of business organizations is expensive work that depends on the type and size of the site. The hosts may provide an interface or control panel to manage carefully the Web Server, install scripts and other applications and modules like e-mail.
Types of Web Hosting Services
There are different types of hosting services, some of which are described as follows.
Free Web Hosting Service– This is offered by different companies having limited services. It is done through advertising or through nominal payment.
Shared Web Hosting Service– In this technique, one’s website is placed on the same server with other sites, which extends from a few sites to hundreds of sites. All domains may share a common pool of server resources like RAM and CPU. The characteristics available with it are quite basic. Regarding software and updates, it is rigid.
Reseller Web Hosting– This method allows clients to become web hosts themselves. Resellers can work for individual domains under any type of hosting, but it depends on whom they are involved with as a reseller.
Dedicated Hosting Service– Here the user gets his or her own Web server and has full control over it. The user has root access for Linux or administrative access for Windows. However in this procedure, he/she does not own the server. The client is solely responsible for securing and maintaining his/her own dedicated server.
Managed Hosting Service– The user is not granted complete control over the Web server that he/she obtains. The user is denied the accesses for Linux or Windows. Users are allowed to manage their data through the use of FTP or any other remote managerial tool. Here the server is leased to the client.
Colocation Web Hosting Service– This is similar to Dedicated Hosting, but the user is the owner of the collocated server. The host company allows physical space that the server occupies and takes care of the server. This is the most powerful and expensive type of service. Servers are kept in rack mount enclosures. The collocation provider may provide little or no direct support for their client’s machine, only electrical, internet access and storage facilities are given.
With the increase in business websites, the need to promote and host them has also increased, for which some web hosts have also come up. These aim to provide quality services to customers. The company that is considered one of India’s leading ISPs is Hosting Raja.
