Full-featured hosting Process

Full-featured hosting services include:

  • Complex hosting solutions, with many companies choosing a hybrid solution. There are many similarities between standard and complex managed hosting and the key difference is the level of administrative and engineering support that the customer pays for – owing to both the increased size and the complexity of the infrastructure deployment. The provider steps in to take over most of the management, including security, memory, storage and IT support. The service is mainly proactive in nature. [1]
  • Dedicated hosting service , also called managed hosting service, where the hosting service provider owns and manages the machine, leasing full control to the customer. Management of the server can be used for backup, installation of security patches and various levels of technical support.
  • Virtual private server , in which virtualization technology is employed in order to allow multiple logical servers to run on a single physical server
  • Colocation facilities provide just the Internet connection, uninterruptible power and climate control, but let the customer do his own system administration ; the most expensive
  • Cloud hosting , which can also be used for the time and the time of use, and can be quickly scaled up or down.

Patent dispute

Web hosting technology has had some controversial causes, as has claims that it holds patent rights to some common hosting technologies, including the use of a web-based control panel to manage the hosting service, with its 19 patents. Hostopia, a large wholesale hosting provider, has been purchased from Hostopia for 10% of Hostopia’s retail revenues. In addition, sued Go Daddy for a similar patent infringement. [2]
