Web Hosting Services

Any website owner needs to avail web hosting service from a web hosting company, in order for his/her website to become accessible over the Internet. This service is availed as a web hosting solution. Web hosting solutions are of different types and can be purchased from web hosting companies as web hosting plans. Depending on your hosting requirements and purpose, you can either opt for a Shared Hosting plan or a plan for Dedicated Hosting or plans for VPS Hosting or Reseller Hosting. If you are wondering that why does a website need to avail web hosting, then let us explain that next.

Every web hosting plan provides server space on a web server of the service provider, along with a certain set of web hosting features. The web server space is used to store the files of websites. These files are also processed on the server. Every time that the web server receives incoming requests from the browsers of website visitors, it responds to those requests by locating the corresponding files in its storage and by processing those files based on the incoming requests. These files of websites are then delivered over an active Internet connection to the devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc.) of site visitors, whose browsers had initiated the communication with the web server. In this way, websites are made accessible to the public over an active Internet connection. Hence, every website that needs to remain up and running and accessible online, needs to avail the service of web hosting.

The hosting features that are part of every web hosting plan ensure that the service being provided is effective and convenient for the users. Some of the features that you need to make sure are present in your web hosting plan, include, high uptime, fast page loads, robust security, user-friendly control panel and technical support that is available round the clock. There are many additional features that are present in web hosting plans, which vary from one plan to another.

While choosing a web hosting plan, you need to give priority to your site’s hosting requirements, your budget and the reputability of the service provider.Here, it needs to be mentioned that HTS Hosting, which excels in delivering efficient and budget-friendly web hosting solutions, has been hailed as the “Best Web Hosting Company” and as the “Best Windows Hosting Company”.

What is Reseller Hosting?

Do you want to start the business of website hosting but want to avoid the investment that is needed for buying and maintaining the necessary infrastructure? Then Reseller Hosting is the perfect web hosting solution for you, which enables you to become the reseller of the web hosting services of established and professional web hosting companies.

As a reseller, you avail web hosting services of a service provider and then design your own hosting packages to resell the acquired hosting services to your own customers at profitable prices. In this way, you do away with the capital investment that is needed for starting a full-fledged web hosting business. You can either opt for a plan for Linux Reseller Hosting or a plan for Windows Reseller Hosting. This type of web hosting service lets you start the business of hosting, as a reseller of the services of popular web hosts, at minimum expenditure, ensuring profits for you.

When you select a Reseller Hosting service, always look for affordable plans, which you can resell easily at higher prices and avail service from a professional, experienced and reliable web hosting company, such as HTS Hosting, which offers the most effective features in its Reseller Hosting packages for the convenience of its services’ resellers.

Everything about a Self-Managed VPS

If you are looking for an affordable hosting solution, wherein you can install your own software and OS and your site gets to utilize dedicated server resources and is hosted in its dedicated server space which is virtual and private, then you should opt for a Self-managed VPS.

A self-managed VPS is a type of a Virtual Private Server (VPS) that is used for hosting multiple websites but provides dedicated server resources and dedicated server space to each of the hosted websites. Such a server can be availed through either a Linux Self-Managed VPS Hosting plan or through a WindowsSelf-Managed VPS Hosting plan, which can be purchased from any reputed service provider, such as HTS Hosting.

A VPS is a web server that stores and processes the files of websites. It responds to the incoming requests of browsers for these files, by letting the browsers retrieve the files they had requested for. A Virtual Private Server is virtually partitioned to create several, isolated, private servers that are virtual. Each of these servers hosts a site and is configured to install its own software and OS. These independently functioning, virtually-created servers succeed in providing the environment of a dedicated server in a shared server space. This is made possible through Virtualization Technology.

There are a number of benefits of using a VPS, which include the availability of dedicated server resources and dedicated server space, installation of own software and operating system, enhanced speed, peak site performance as well as augmented security. You can avail VPS as a Managed VPS or as a Self-managed VPS.

A Self-managed VPS is a Virtual Private Server that is provided by the service provider but is managed, maintained and kept secure and updated by the user of the server, without any assistance from the service provider. Hence, it is recommended for those that either have the technical know-how in this regard or have an in-house team that can manage the server.

HTS Hosting offers very efficient and affordably-priced Self-managed and Managed VPS that are configured to boost the performance of your hosted site and ensure an excellent hosting experience for you.


As can be gauged from the information that has been provided here, Reseller Hosting is a solution for starting the business of web hosting, at the least expenditure, by becoming a reseller of the web hosting services of reputed service providers. On the other hand, a Self-managed VPS is a web server that is used to host the files of websites and is managed and kept updated and secure by the user of this server. This is the main difference between Reseller Hosting, which is a web hosting service and Self-managed VPS, which is a web server that is managed by the user. Moreover, Reseller Hosting is availed by those that want to become the resellers of web hosting services, whereas website owners avail server space on a Self-managed VPS for hosting their websites.

Now that you are equipped with all the necessary information, you can easily choose between these two hosting services, based on your specific requirement. HTS Hosting is globally renowned for offering both these types of services at discounted prices, along with all other types of hosting solutions.
