Decoding Web Hosting Reviews Part Ii From Java To Windows

Decoding Web Hosting Reviews Part Ii From Java To Windows



In an​ earlier article, we explained how web hosting reviews identify web hosting companies by the​ services they offer. So if​ a​ web host offers ASP technology, they say it's an​ ASP hosting company. With that in​ mind, in​ this two-part series we've laid out many of​ the​ most common types of​ web hosting services you'll read about in​ the​ web hosting reviews you peruse. Last time we started at​ ASP and​ got as​ far as​ FrontPage. Now we'll finish the​ alphabet.

If the​ web hosting review mentions Java Hosting, it​ refers to​ one of​ the​ most widely used and​ widely recognized programming languages, the​ use of​ which practically assures you that your website will be understood by any computer in​ the​ world. Java is​ a​ simple, versatile, cross-platform, tag-based language that lets you build all sorts of​ things: bit maps and​ vector graphics; server-side applications for​ forums and​ forms, online polls and​ stores; improved database, email, PDF, XML, and​ Microsoft Office functionality and​ more. Using Java opens you up to​ libraries upon libraries of​ prewritten code for​ every imaginable use you could have for​ your website. You may also see web hosting reviews mentioning JSP or​ Java Server Pages, which allow you to​ create entire websites that are platform independent.

If the​ web hosting review mentions MySQL Hosting, it's referring to​ one of​ the​ most widely used and​ recognized databases on the​ internet. if​ your web presence is​ going to​ be a​ database-heavy operation, consider a​ MySQL hosting provider. You'll get extra support for​ adding, accessing, editing, and​ processing data in​ your many MySQL databases. Web hosting reviews for​ MySQL hosting providers should mention the​ number of​ databases offered, the​ ease-of-use of​ the​ interface you'll be using day in​ and​ day out, CRON support for​ automating routine tasks, and​ PHP support since PHP and​ MySQL go hand in​ hand. Read on!

If the​ web hosting review mentions PHP Hosting, it​ refers to​ a​ server-side scripting language that is​ commonly used in​ conjunction with MySQL databases. it​ is​ an​ open-source language and​ as​ such can be altered and​ amended in​ any way you see fit. as​ such, there are tons of​ free, prewritten PHP scripts all over the​ internet for​ your convenience. Because PHP is​ a​ server-side language, it​ is​ cross-platform (meaning Unix, Linux, and​ Windows computers can see your site the​ same). and​ since PHP is​ a​ server-side language, if​ you plan to​ use it​ in​ running your dynamic, interactive, database driven website, you must go with a​ PHP hosting provider.

If the​ web hosting review mentions SSH Hosting, it​ refers to​ Secure Shell, a​ Linux-based protocol that gives users remote terminal access to​ their computer systems, meaning that administrators can perform private, confidential administrative tasks on their server -- tasks that ordinarily must be done directly on the​ server itself -- from a​ different computer in​ a​ completely different location -- securely.

If the​ web hosting review mentions Windows Hosting it just means that, like a​ computer might run Microsoft Windows as​ its operating system, your web server too will be running Microsoft Windows. That's all. a​ windows hosting company might very well offer PHP hosting, MySQL hosting, FrontPage hosting, Java hosting, ASP hosting, and​ more. Which brings us to​ our final point...

We closed Part I of​ this series with this note and​ we'll close Part II the​ same way. One web hosting provider alone quite likely will offer a​ great many of​ the​ hosting services we've described and​ more. Make sure you read each web hosting review carefully to​ be clear on exactly what types of​ hosting each company offers.
