Hosting FAQs

Web hosting forms the most technical part of any online business. Understanding the underlying principals is a necessity for the savvy online business owner..

What is web hosting?  

Most people understand the basic principles of setting up a small business – establish an appropriate business name, rent a shop space, move in and decorate.

Web hosting is not much different. A registrant establishes a domain name, leases a block of server space and uploads their webpage. Very quickly, anybody with a connection to the internet can start browsing the site.

A domain name provides the address of the server, while the server is a rented space into which the data that make up the webpage is stored. This process is known as delegation - the domain name points to the particular hosting account on the particular server.

The servers' main job is to 'serve' files to the web browser that made the request. And in the same way as property is managed by a landlord, the server is managed by a web host.

The web host determines the server features. However, not all servers are created equal and there are many options available. Some web hosting services provide technical support and some will force you to go it alone. Others may simply offer a basic redirection service, while advanced packages provide scripting support, database storage or email services.

What is shared hosting?  

For many businesses, a consistent and reliable web presence is vital. Yet many smaller business and organisations simply don't have the budget to build expensive server systems and infrastructure.

The solution is to share resources.

Shared hosting services traditionally started out by selling space on hosting servers so that a number of different customers could be served by the one machine. An individual server could cater for a number of different hosting accounts, each with an allocated amount of storage and bandwidth.

However, web hosting has become more sophisticated and removed the risk of failure that comes with relying on a single piece of hardware.

In Australia, Netregistry pioneered a technique of clustering a number of servers together in a hosting cloud. This allowed the infrastructure to share a wide pool of resources – storage, processing power, etc – while removing the risk of an individual server failing. Load balancers ensure requests are directed to the least busy server, resulting in higher levels of performance at any one time.

So instead of sharing a single server, hosting accounts now share the entire infrastructure. Multiple servers, system processors and storage devices operate together as one server, which is then split into thousands of smaller 'virtual' servers, each operating with the same performance and reliability as a single server. Each can be used to host a website. These services also share the same IP address and allows for many thousands of web requests to be processed at any one time.

Resources are always available and costs are far, far lower than buying and managing your own server.

There are some limitations, however. A shared hosting system is subject to the misuse of resources by individual users that can affect everybody. Therefore, the larger the pool of resources and the more redundancies in place, the less risk to your hosting account. Also, not all web hosts use a clustered server environment and may still mean you are sharing a single piece of hardware with multiple users.

What is Cloud Hosting?  

Cloud Hosting is a new era of hosting technology. It is very different with traditional vps or dedicated server which don't have any feature on stability and flexibility. The theory of cloud architecture is to separate the hypervisor controller and the storage base, it usually having two working hypervisor server, one SAN(Storage Area Network), multilayer firewall and a internet pipeline.

By using this type of setting, the whole system will become a true cloud platform with self-healing and automatic failover function. This give feature of high availability without offline disaster.

Do a Blog need a website?  

Blogs have become a hugely popular way to self-publish, diarise, communicate and record ideas and thoughts for others to read and comment. Many free services and platforms are available that fall into two distinct groups.

Firstly, blogging providers such as Blogger and WordPress allow anybody to create a blog on their website with a few simple steps. These sites are pre-made with templates and push-button publishing that allow anyone with a basic knowledge of the internet to quickly master.

However, there is a downside to quickly launching a blog on with one of these providers.

When creating an account with these services, a blog page is established as a sub domain of the blog provider, e.g. http://myblogsite101.blogger.com.au. Your blog is really just a walled off section of a much larger collection of thousands of blogs in the one website.

It is possible to register and delegate your own domain name to the blog provider who will likely have a set of instructions on connecting your domain name to the blog. It's a fairly simple process, and each blog provider should have a complete set of instructions on how to achieve it. This is fully supported by Netregistry.

A blog is potentially one of the strongest potential weapons in your SEO arsenal when trying to attract more search engine visitors. But if you also have a business website and domain separate from your blog, it won't benefit from any of the back links or the additional keyword rich content your blog produces – the host website will.

This is why many professional bloggers opt for specialist open source software such as WordPress that they can install on their own hosting server. This means that you can include your blog as part of a wider website or simply have greater control over how your blog behaves.

Can I buy web hosting without a domain name?  

While they both work together, the domain name and the web hosting service are two different things and can each function in different ways.

However, without a domain name there would be no way to access or lead to the information stored in your hosting account. Therefore, the hosting couldn't function.

Domain names, however, can be purchased without web hosting. These domains are considered 'Parked' until such time as their name servers are delegated (or pointed) to a webhost. Advanced DNS records of the domain can also be used to point to other servers, although the IP address must be known. It may also be redirected to another domain name. For example www.mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com.au are both individual domains but one may be redirected to the other. In this case, web hosting only needs to be established on the target domain.
