Web Hosting for Beginners
Web Hosting is an online service that stores all data files of websites such as articles, images, videos, source codes …
1. Hosting vs Domain?
For example, dtstelecom.com.vn, ssdcloud.com.vn or thegioivps.com.vn are domain names. The domain name must point to your data and the user will see the content (ie pointing to hosting). For a summary, Domain and Hosting are 2 completely different products. But you need both to be able to make a complete website.
- Hosting: Used to store data, rent by year.
- Domain: Address to let others access your website, annual payment.
Without a domain name, there is no way to find a website and vice versa if there is no hosting, then you have no place to store data, and the website will not run.
2. How is Web Hosting works?
In the technical aspect, it is understandable that Hosting is a physical server running smoothly so that your website can always operate at all times for everyone to access.
Your Web Hosting provider is responsible for keeping the server running, fighting malicious attacks, and transferring content (text, images, files) from the server to the user’s browser. Regardless of anyone typing the domain name into the browser address bar, the hosting will transfer all the necessary files from the server to that browser.
Customers will use familiar tools to manage Hosting like CPanel or Directadmin
3. Choose the Right Hosting Package
You need to choose the hosting package that best suits your needs. Depending on your needs and purpose, you can choose hosting packages with different capacity or bandwidth.
> For example, sales websites often contain a lot of images and effects, so hosting packages with 3GB or more capacity will be most suitable.
You can start from the cheapest price plan of DTS Telecom, designed specifically for small projects. When the website grows and needs more storage space or server resources, we will support you to expand the capacity of equivalent higher packages.
Yes, you do not need any programming knowledge to perform server administration. Your account already has a user interface, so you can manage all aspects of the website.
> For example, you can upload HTML files and other files to the server, install CMS as WordPress, access your database and create backups for the site.
Besides providing space for your website, DTS Telecom also provides other services related to the website, such as:
- SSL certificate (for using HTTPS security protocol) (free integration with Hosting packages)
- Email hosting
- Customer service (email, skype, facebook, tawk.to)
- Technical support servicesAutomatically backup the website
4. DTS Cloud Hosting
Cloud hosting is the most reliable solution on the market because it seems to have absolutely no downtime.
With cloud hosting, DTS Telecom has a set of servers (cluster servers). Resources are distributed on servers. When one of the cloud servers is overloaded or has any problems, your traffic will automatically be forwarded and processed at the other server of that cluster server.
