You can’t set up something you don’t have and using a website is going to be hard to do without having a server. High-security hosting involves either renting out space on a server that is owned or leased by multiple people or renting out the entire server itself. At Smart Software Solutions we have a dedicated server that exists to serve our client’s needs. When you put us in charge of hosting your website you don’t have to worry about a thing. We will handle it all.
Below are some of the benefits of choosing to use high-security hosting.
Security should be the most important concern when trying to find a web host. We value our clients and their data so we can ensure data stored on our servers will be secure. Our servers are equipped with antivirus and activity monitoring software to catch even the sneakiest attacks. Moreover, as your website host we can provide SSL certificates, content delivery networks, web application firewalls, and protection against brute force attacks.
As the host of your website, you can give us the responsibility to maintain your website. It will be our duty as your webmaster to make any modifications to your website that you feel are necessary. There are lots of tasks in website maintenance that should be done weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually such as testing the website on different devices and browsers or even updating any references to the current year. When done consistently, website maintenance will keep the website healthy, encourage growth, and strengthen search engine rankings.
A database is the structure in which your data is being held in a computer. We can create a customized database for whatever your needs are. As a database administrator, we will organize, store, and take care of your data so that it will only be available to users with authorized access. We handle all the duties of a database administrator including: securing data, restoring lost data, creating new user permissions, testing modifications, merging old databases, and conducting performance support.
Types of Hosting Services
At the end of the day, you have all the control in the world. We want to be as transparent as possible and give you options for hosting in order to fit your needs. There are lots of options for hosting services. Some of the popular ones include:
Shared Web Hosting
A shared web hosting service is a web hosting service where many websites reside on a single web server that is connected to the internet. Compared to all the other hosting options, this one is considerably cheaper as many customers share the cost of using the server. Shared web hosting works by dividing the server into parts for users to host their website files in. Each user on the server gets a percentage of RAM, CPU, and access to the database server and mail server.
A dedicated server is exactly what it sounds like, a client leases an entire server that is not shared with anyone else. It is more expensive than shared web hosting but offers more control over the server since you are not sharing. This option is ideal for large websites with a large number of visitors. Since the server solely belongs to one client, it can be completely configured to meet their needs.
Cloud hosting uses multiple different servers that uses resources from a centralized pool of resources. This type of server has many benefits. Cloud servers are served on a cloud, which means no physical hardware and no physical location. With no physical hardware, data stored on cloud servers can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. Furthermore, cloud servers are always running so any applications that are hosted on cloud servers should always be running. Since the server has no shape or size, the processing power and storage space is endless. Cloud hosting is a fairly new concept that allows for many possibilities.
Clustered hosting is a type of web hosting that is spread across multiple physical machines. Clustered hosting is good for large websites because it uses load balancing to eliminate single points of failure. Many large websites use clustered hosting solutions for its ability to handle large loads and be always available. Compared to a single server, clustered servers can be rebooted in small pieces at a time so at least one server is always running.
