Shared Web Hosting FAQs
What is Web Hosting?
The Internet evolved rapidly and globally when it saw its commercial potential. The most apparent part of its evolution appeared in the form of websites, which are nothing more than addresses that we access to obtain information about something or to use a service or application.
But the Internet is much more than just a website, in the same way that the website hosting service also assumes a wide range of services - where the website is just the most visible and common part of what is possible to do online.
Consciously or unconsciously, we are all immersed a lot of time in the network. Examples of this occur when:
- we communicate with someone by email;
- "chat" via WhatsApp;
- we shared an Instagram photo;
- we schedule an appointment at EverNote;
- we downloaded a file from the Dropbox cloud to use in the face-to-face or virtual meeting (on JoinMe);
- we call an Uber to go to a customer;
Creating a list of existing services on the web is easy. Completing it, however, not so much. All this and a lot of services that you remembered, because it uses all the time, involves the Internet and is only possible thanks to website hosting companies.
It is true that some of these - the largest - go beyond service: they are the hosts of the applications they provide. Except those who were born big, at some point they had to resort to hosting.
The website hosting company (or hosting or hosting provider) provides all the resources for someone to have something on the Internet. This includes items such as: a simple professional email account; your company or personal website; a virtual store; that Android app you thought of creating or just your branch's NF-e issuing system.
HostMedia maintains a solid infrastructure of servers, network, systems, professionals and is committed to offering the best website hosting, offering ready and inexpensive website hosting plans to help you realize your dreams through an online presence.
Don't waste time, start today with HostMedia!
What are the types of web hosting?
HostMedia has several types of website hosting and each of these options is geared to a specific need. A simple website, with few accesses, requires less processing, data transfer and hosting space. Have a large portal or system of CRM, E-commerce, etc. you need a more robust server, for example.
To help you better understand the main characteristics of the available hosting variables and to have no doubts when making the best choice for your case, we have separated, below, a list of website hosting services and what each one offers.
Shared Web Hosting
It is the most common and most used type of hosting by people and companies and is usually treated by companies in the segment, just like hosting websites. The shared model was the major driver of the internet, as it made content hosting accessible from a financial point of view, since the internet infrastructure needed for hosting is extensive and expensive.
The concept is based on placing several sites hosted on the same server, which together use the resources (processors, memory, network, storage, etc.) and services (e-mail, database, FTP, etc.) ) of the server. This sharing of the infrastructure is what makes the cost of accommodation attractive and cheaper, as the total value is shared among all.
But at the same time that shared website hosting meets a wide range of needs and there are very complete and robust plans, there are restrictions, limits and rules for using the services. By analogy, residents of a condominium or apartment building have limits and rules regarding the use of resources (swimming pool, court, party room, gym, etc.) so that all residents can enjoy the benefits they share.
Thus, if the services you need to store have special or above average demands, it is necessary to consider a customized hosting plan, VPS or Dedicated Server.
Free Web Hosting
Generally, free hosting is an alternative if you want to create a website to share news in your office or as part of a specific, one-off activity.
The options available are very limited. Thus, it is not very advisable to start your page in such an installation if it is a really important project, as you may have your account deleted at any time - and without notice.
This modality is indicated for those who want to set up their own website hosting service. It is made available by large companies, which enable their customers to become resellers.
The same concepts are used for shared hosting servers. However, you are allowed to customize the control panel with your logo and domain, in order to create a closer relationship with potential customers.
Reseller hosting is the ideal type of service for web designers and developers and those with technology knowledge who are thinking about becoming a digital entrepreneur. This is because it is possible to resell it to your own customers, ensuring the creation of recurring income.
The virtual server is popularly known as VPS, which stands for Virtual Private Server. It is the middle ground between shared website hosting and the dedicated server, with plans starting at $249.99 monthly, you can have basic management, cPanel control panel, etc.
This type of hosting is ideal if your page is in an initial process of increasing traffic and there is an apparent need to improve the quality of access, but not enough to hire a dedicated server.
The VPS maintains the same characteristics as shared website hosting, with the difference of sharing only resources such as processing, memory, disks and server network.
In this modality, as the name suggests, you will have an exclusive hosting server. It is indicated for sites that have a high volume of constant traffic and have slow access (or even blackouts, due to data congestion).
Unlike shared website hosting servers, here you will have all the potential of a service geared exclusively to your needs, which increases not only the speed of loading, but also the security of your files. The cost of a dedicated server can start from $249 monthly and increase proportionally to the characteristics you need.
In addition to the benefits already presented, it is worth mentioning that the dedicated server is indispensable for the installation of online management systems and CRM'S, due to its importance to the company. Thus, it is possible to avoid any inconvenience and improve the quality of services and assistance.
This modality is suitable for those who want to set up their own website hosting service. It is made available by large companies, which enable their customers to become resellers.
In principle colocation is the same hosting modality as the dedicated server, with the difference that the server is owned by the client, who places his machine in the datacenter to enjoy the network infrastructure, security, energy and administration.
This is an option adopted in cases where the customer has very specific needs in terms of hardware and / or software.
What to consider when choosing a Web hosting service?
The hosting has some standardized features, which you need to check in all companies that provide this type of service. Check below what they are:
In this field will be the disk space contracted for the storage of your website's files. What will determine if you need more hosting is the characteristic of your site, such as the number of pages, images, videos, etc.
Most of the large companies present in the current scenario offer an adequate space for the proper functioning of a website and storage of e-mails.
Traffic refers to the number of times your domain can be accessed, consuming data bandwidth, up to limit situations, in which the site may be slow or even down. Like storage, traffic is offered as being unlimited, as long as your need can be supported by the server.
Website hosting has control panels, through which you can access shortcuts to the main administrative needs of the server, such as: domains, file manager, creation of email accounts, etc.
Amid the various benefits listed by the hosting companies, those that really make a difference for the administration and the correct functioning of the website are:
- number of SQL databases (Structured Query Language) - preferably, that is unlimited;
- number of email accounts (which is also unlimited);
- automatic installation of CMS (WordPress, Joomla, for example);
- website builder (preferably free);
- number of domains you can include in your hosting (the most affordable plans only allow one).
Prices and credibility in the market
It is very common to find several companies practicing prices well below the usual in the market, in order to attract more customers and, later, to retain them. Some companies hide the real price and when customers renew the contract, they end up taking real scares.
Before making the decision for one or another website hosting, remember that the cheapest can be very expensive in the future. Therefore, prior research about the company and the exact amount you will pay for hosting after participating in any promotion is very important.
Also visit the company's Facebook page, search the Internet and find out what customers are really saying about the service.
Why there are different types of Web Hosting?
The answer is simple and the reasons are no different from real-world situations.
If your company grows and you have a significant increase in the number of employees, you need more tables, chairs, computers and space, among other resources. It may even be necessary to physically change the company.
Also different companies with the same number of employees and segment of activity, may have different needs in terms of resources and thus the facilities of one, may not meet the other, because each has its own needs.
When you need to host something on the internet, it is no different. In general, everything is hosting, but there are services that were created to meet special needs that sometimes a customer may have and that differ from most companies and people.
In addition to the hosting plan, do I have to pay anything else?
If you already have a registered domain, there is no other amount or fee to be paid, other than the installments of the hosting plan to choose from.
What do I need to host a website on HostMedia?
First of all a website to be accessed, you need a friendly address to your visitor. This address is given the domain name. So, when you type in your browser www.yourbusiness.com, the portion of the address just after www. is the domain.
If you do not already have a domain, one of the first steps is to think of one, which should be both friendly from the point of view of being easy to remember, as well as possible, identifying its content or the name of your company or branch. performance. If you do not already have a domain, HostMedia provides the service of domains register (.com, .net and .org), as well as a series of other extensions.
The second step is to choose a hosting plan for the website that best suits your needs, where the content of your website will be stored so that people can access it, as well as other related services, such as email accounts.
Important: If you don't have a registered .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info or .us domain yet, ordering any HostMedia web hosting plan with annual payment, the first year of domain registration is free. If you have question, contact our team who will be on hand to help you.
If I need more resources, can I switch to another web hosting plan?
Yes. The migration between any of our web hosting plans is very simple and takes just a few minutes. No technical procedures or changes need to be made on your website.
Which web hosting plan is best suited to my website?
HostMedia has 4 web hosting plans that are able to meet the most common needs of companies, professionals and even individuals, when it comes to creating some level of digital presence.

Small business and even independent professionals or individuals, who see their business grow and who need more space for the content they produce, more email accounts to support the arrival of employees and increased communication with partners, suppliers and customers, find in the PRO web hosting plan the natural evolution to a more comprehensive hosting environment.
Small companies, already duly constituted, that have an institutional website and a blog, or even a virtual store, or even any other type of website, have more collaborators and therefore have greater demands in terms of e-mail accounts and storage, as well as the performance that all requires, have the BUSINESS web hosting plan, which is able to supply the needs of many companies of this size.

Can I use Dreamweaver or any other program for website development?
