The web hosting, web hosting or hosting is a service that provides an Internet space to store and transmit information, images and multimedia web sites. More specifically, get web hosting means having space on a server. Companies that offer hosting services are those who sell, either by monthly or annual prices, capacity on their servers and fast Internet connection. The term "server" refers to both the hardware and software that allow giving existence to a website, namely, alludes to both the machine as the program that runs on it to make a site there.
Companies hosting servers are computers and programs in data centers. They offer accommodation and lodging or on the World Wide Web to all those individuals and companies who want to have a website. As for the concept of Web server software is a program that contains information from a website and receiving orders for browsers.
This means that a user to write any address of a site, the browser place an order through the transfer protocol HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol, ie Text Transfer Protocol) server at that site, which returns code HTML for the site in question, so that the browser as interpreter. Once the user's browser executes code, the site can be viewed on the screen. You may wonder what it means to HTML (HyperText Markup Language). This is a programming language with which they are made the vast majority of websites, with its texts, images and other objects of design.
The servers also agree with the type of operating system you run, not only send HTML tags for each site to browsers, but can also execute various technologies such as PHP, ASP, ASP.NET and Perl, with technologies that are built dynamic websites. The servers also include security protocols such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), crucial for e-commerce websites.

The plans offered by hosting companies vary primarily according to the size of disk space. The size of web hosting depends on the type of site that can be developed. The static sites, namely those simpler, without animation or interactivity, do not require much space, but the dynamic sites (with texts in motion, animations, surveys, forums and customizations) do require a greater amount of space in the same way that sites devoted to electronic commerce. Moreover, web hosting plans also vary with the amount of traffic that allowed per month. A website has a limited traffic, meaning that the amount of data that can be transferred per month is not infinite. Thus, when choosing a site for hosting becomes imperative to assess the needs and budget of each person or organization.
While each company is hosting packages and special offers, some proposals can be described in general terms. The plans aimed at small and medium-sized websites (ideal for individuals or for SMEs) typically include between 50 and 200 MB of disk space, up to 30 boxes of mail, up to 16 GB of data transfer per month, approximately 4 domains, without access to MySQL database or SQL. accommodation plans for large companies (which usually have a higher budget and develop websites increased capacity and complexity) offer usually between 200 MB and 600 MB of disk space, between 50 and 200 boxes of mail, up to 80 GB of data transfer per month, between 6 and 8 domains and access to SQL database and MySQL.
For its part, plans for hosting companies engaged in business on the Internet tend to provide between 600 MB and 3000 MB of disk space, a large number of email boxes (or more until 1000), between 80 GB and 320 GB data transfer per month, about 15 domains and access to SQL database and MySQL.
