Hi there! In this video, you'll learn what hosting is and we'll identify the four types of hosting available at GoDaddy. To make your website visible on the web, your website's files and data must be physically stored on a computer that is connected to the Internet. These large high-powered computers are called web servers. Website hosts are companies that physically house several web servers in one location, or what is sometimes referred to as a data center. In addition to housing the web servers, website hosts provide the software, security, support, and bandwidth that connects your website to the internet. Think of a website hosting company like a shopping center that contains several individual stores. If you want to open a store at the shopping center, you can lease space in it and set up shop. Just like a shopping center, website hosting companies enable you to lease space on their web servers, where you can store your website files and make them available for visitors to view on the Internet. To accommodate a wide variety of websites and customer needs, there are a variety of hosting solutions. Hosting solutions are broadly categorized based on the amount of server space you need for your website files, and the monthly amount of bandwidth your site consumes. Bandwidth refers to the amount of data being transferred, or the amount of resource usage your website requires. Consider your shop again... Suppose you sell only handmade bracelets; you have a small, unique product offering, so you don't need, nor want, to lease the same amount of space as a big department store. Instead, you could lease a smaller store in the shopping center that gives you just enough space for your goods and costs less money. Additionally, because you're a small shop you don't need a lot of extra technology or staff to help you sell your product like a department store requires. Between you and your mobile payment device, you have plenty of bandwidth to take care of your customers, and don't need to buy any extra technology or hire more employees. Make sense? Beyond server space and bandwidth, there are other things to consider when selecting a hosting solution: your budget, ease of use or complexity of solution, the level of flexibility or customization the solution allows, as well as privacy and security features. GoDaddy offers a variety hosting solutions. To determine which hosting solution is best for you, please visit GoDaddy.com and click Hosting.

So, in this video I'm going to be sharing my top  3 best web hosting providers that are also cheap.   And, while every single provider on this list  offers top-notch performance for a low price they   all use different pricing models. So, watch till  the end to find out which ones work best for you First up is InterServer, a company that  has been around since 1999 but escaped the   radar of most consumers by being overpowered in  marketing by giant corporations like HostGator,   Bluehost or GoDaddy. InterServer is offering  cheap and flexible hosting especially when   you consider all of the extra features that the  plan includes. One huge advantage of InterServer   is that they don't require you to pay hundreds of  dollars up front. You can be billed $5 each month.   You see, most web hosting companies advertise  monthly prices but they either only offer 1 year,   2 year or 3 year subscription periods, where  you pay the full period up front, or worse...   Their monthly prices are 2 times or 3 times  higher than the yearly ones. Forcing you to   pay a lot more if you want to be billed monthly.  This of course doesn't happen with InterServer.   And if you're ready to get started I'll leave  a discount links in the description for every   single provider that I talk about you can get  even better deals because I usually negotiate   special discounts just for my viewers. These  videos take an incredibly long time to properly   test, research script and then film and if  I want to keep my content honest I can only   monetize through affiliate commissions. So, not  only will you get a discount but you'll support   my future content as well. I'll be able to  make more high quality, well researched and   edited videos for your pleasure! Thank you for  the support and let's get back to the video.   So, another huge advantage when it comes to  pricing at InterServer is their price lock   guarantee which makes you completely immune to  any price increases in the future. For example,   recently SiteGround has almost doubled their  prices and everyone that was using SiteGround   had to pay the increased price because it's  in their terms of service. They can change   the price any time and you'll be forced to pay  the increased amount or switch. InterServer   makes your account immune to any further price  increases upon purchase, the amount you pay when   signing up is the amount your account has locked  in! Their standard shared web hosting plan is a   1 size fits all and actually it's probably  enough for like 90% of website owners. Because   for the price that you're paying, you're getting  quite a lot of resources and premium features.   What if I need more storage space, you might ask?  Well, it's unlimited at InterServer. Okay, maybe   I'll need more traffic? Nope, still unlimited.  More email accounts? My dude it's unlimited.   But... but what about SSL, Content Delivery,  Backups and... shhhh.. calm down... calm down...   everything's fine.. everything you need  is included for $5 a month, you're getting   every premium feature there is. I've used the  InterServer automatic installation software to   create a basic WordPress site that looks something  like this within 5 to 10 minutes. I wanted to test   out their loading speed. So, this website loaded  in 1.3 seconds and had a 0.2 second time to first   byte response, which is an incredibly fast result.  Most providers charge you anywhere from $20 to   $50 a month for plans that are this fast. The only  real problem with InterServer if you choose to go   with it is their control panel, that's a bit  outdated. Here's how it looks in the back end   while it does use the standard cPanel that you  can reach quite easily it's just not something   that's easy to get used to if you've used a modern  control panel before. And in my opinion, their   control panel is by far the weakest link. Overall,  you're just getting a good set of features for   a good price and you can be billed a small  amount each month while getting exceptionally   good performance. InterServer isn't like a super  well-known company but they do have their own data   centers and the people behind the company seem to  care more about customers than profits. If you're   interested in InterServer you can get started  with the discount links in the description and   if you want to know more I have a full InterServer  review that you can find right about here, here. Another company that's getting traction quite fast  by offering cheap and powerful web hosting plans   is Hostinger. The focus point of Hostinger is  their newest technology like Litespeed servers,   Google Cloud infrastructure, PHP 7.4 and HTTP/2  support while offering extremely cheap plans.   Their single hosting plan starts at $0.99 a  month but you can get that price down even lower   to just $0.89 a month by using the links  down below with the coupon code EMITREVIEWS.   However, there is a catch unlike InterServer,  Hostinger only offers low prices if you're buying   for a long period of time like 3 or 4 years in  advance. So, you need to invest a larger sum up   front then you can stop worrying about your web  hosting costs for the years to come a 4 year plan   with one website will cost you $47 and it will  renew at $103 after 4 years with Hostinger. You   also get pretty much everything you need to get  started 10 GB storage space is plenty for 1 site,   a free SSL to encrypt your site 100 GBs of  bandwidth will also allow you to have anywhere   from 15 000 to 25 000 unique visitors per month  depending on your website size of course. You even   get to register a free website name at the time of  making this video, they own their own data centers   they have their own infrastructure and they have  developed their own control panel even though it's   a bit slower than cPanel...it's cheaper. In terms  of performance even the cheapest plan holds up   quite well I'm testing the exact same website as  with InterServer and I'm using an SSL certificate,   Litespeed cache and the latest PHP 7.4 version.  My Hostinger website is loaded in 1.6 seconds with   time to first byte of 0.4 seconds. Slower than  InterServer but keep in mind this is on a plan   that's $1 a month. But in general Hostinger offers  really good performance the control panel is also   awesome they keep investing in new technology  and new innovations if you want to get yourself   some cheap and reliable web hosting you can do  so from the links in the description and use   the coupon code EMITREVIEWS. You'll get an extra  10% off your order saving you even more money.   And the last provider that I will recommend is  a bit different Cloudways is a more powerful   solution that does require some degree of  technical knowledge but if you set it up   properly you'll get hundreds of dollars worth of  performance by spending just a couple of bucks.   Cloudways allows you to rent a virtual private  server from the top providers like Google or   Amazon and set everything up for you. They also  give you an easy to use control panel to manage   your server and website signing up is absolutely  free and you don't even need a credit card,   you only need a phone number and an email address.  And, you can try their service completely free   of charge for 3 days just to get a feel if  it's something that you're interested in.   Controlling your Cloudways server is as easy  as controlling your shared hosting account and   you do get a free SSL certificate, a firewall and  automated website updates thrown in for free. But   what makes Cloudways truly cheap is that they use  an hourly billing system and you only have to pay   for what you use. You can manually manage how  powerful you want your server to be using this   slider and you'll only pay for the storage  and bandwidth you take up on their servers.   Well or the ones you're renting... Meaning if  you don't have many visitors, you're not using   up much resources you'll barely have to pay  anything. The Cloudways resource management   system makes so that you never need to worry about  your website upgrades because just using these   sliders you can make your website use more or less  resources and your price will change accordingly.   Of course you can always check what you're paying  for by going into the real-time billing section   and seeing just exactly what they're taking your  money for. Since Cloudways is offering VPS or   virtual private servers you can expect better than  average performance for a fraction of the cost.   The extra power you get is great for running  ecommerce stores so I did the exact same test   as I did with Hostinger and InterServer. And  Cloudways was the fastest out of all of them!   With a surprising 1.2 second loading time and  just 0.2 second time to first bite. While all   three companies on this list offer better than  average performance for the fraction of the cost   which one should you choose? Well in my opinion if  you just want to pay a small amount each month and   cancel any time if you don't like the service go  for InterServer. If you're not afraid of upfront   costs go with Hostinger, of course you will have  to commit for at least 3 or 4 years but the prices   are generally lowest you will get anywhere for  the service that they're providing. You'll get   to use the newest technologies and a modern  control panel with all of the premium features   and if you want something with more power and  complete control over what you're paying for go   with Cloudways. You'll enjoy their hourly billing  based on resource usage and of course you'll have   the best possible performance because you'll be  using a virtual private server that's dedicated   all completely to you and of course it comes  with the added benefit that you'll never overpay   because you're only paying for what you're using.  For now, my name is Emit and subscribe for more   reviews tutorials and everything that's  related web hosting I'll see in the next video! you

I have spent a lot of time on this channel talking  about various web hosting providers but I never   actually took the time to explain what is  web hosting and how does it all work. So,   in this video I'll answer exactly that and  if you think you know everything there is to   know about web hosting keep watching  you might just learn something new! To understand how web hosting works you  first need to understand how websites work.   Every single website is composed of different  files that are responsible for showing text,   images, buttons, login, contact forms  and similar elements to the users. So,   a website in essence is just a collection of  various files and these files need a place where   they can be stored in order to view them. And  that place just happens to be a computer! Just   like you would store pictures on your computer and  simply open them up whenever you want to view them   the same exact way you can store website files on  your computer to view your website. And at this   point you might be thinking so wait I can just  turn my own home computer into a web server?   Yes! Yes, you absolutely can I even have a guide  on how you can do that right here. But it's not   the best idea. This comes with a lot of problems,  for one in order for your website to be online   your computer would need to be connected to the  internet at all times. If you lose connection   that's it your website is offline. And most  home usage internet connections simply do not   pack enough juice required to efficiently  transfer files to thousands of visitors,   you would need an extremely high bandwidth  internet connection. And of course your computer   can overheat or break or the electricity could  go out all resulting in your website being...   Yep! Offline. As you can imagine if absolutely  everyone hosted their website this way we would   have complete chaos. Imagine if Google, YouTube  or Facebook would be offline for days or weeks   just because someone's cat spilled coke on the  computer. Luckily people had a better solution!   Web hosting companies emerged, these companies  would build specialized, cost effective computers   that aren't very good for regular usage but are  extremely efficient at storing and transferring   data. These computers are called servers, the next  step was renting out huge warehouses to store all   of those servers making sure they're kept cool  have access to the internet and maintenance.   These server warehouses are called data centers  and these bad boys are huge! The largest data   center is 10 million square feet or 920 thousand  square meters. This is the equivalent of 170   football fields combined! And that's just one data  center, there's probably thousands of them all   around the world. These web hosting companies  rent you the server space for a monthly fee,   this way you have a reliable and maintained  environment to keep all of your website files   safe and secure. But this also comes with some  unique advantages. For example, they give you   a control panel and an interface to manage your  website easier. You also get the tools necessary   to create professional looking email addresses and  configure their servers for additional security,   so your websites and email addresses are safe.  Well all of this seems nice and great, but it does   come with some concerns for the future. One of the  biggest ones being just how much raw electricity   these mega data centers consume. Just to give  you a small example YouTube gets around 1.5   billion views every single day. To provide a  smooth playback for this amount of use the data   centers storing the information consume as much  electricity as 60 000 US homes do in 1 year. And   that's just 1 website in 1 day! A big portion  of the electricity consumed is then converted   into heat because the components in the server  constantly increase in temperature while under   load which then requires even more electricity  being used to dissipate the heat and cool the   servers down. And recently the web hosting  industry has been under some heavy fire for how   much electricity it consumes. Some experts even  go as far as saying that as the demand increases   this will actually become a major problem. But  obviously where there's a problem there is a   solution and some web hosting companies have  already started combating this using something   they call "Green Hosting". It's basically them  using solar or wind energy to power all of their   servers and then planting a lot of trees at scale  to offset their carbon footprint. But to summarize   this is how it all happens: your website is just  a bunch of files stored on a massive remote server   that you're renting a minuscule part of while it  continues to work non-stop 24/7. These servers are   connected to the internet and are able to transfer  the files to your viewers at a rapid speed. But   another question often associated with web hosting  well if it's all just servers in a warehouse is   every single web hosting provider equal? No, not  at all! Different providers have different size   data centers and their servers are made up from  different components for example some providers   use the latest 2019-2020 technology while  others don't want to upgrade and still use the   same servers they built back in 2005 and have been  constantly working for 15 years. So, when choosing   your hosting provider do some research! And now  you have the knowledge about what is web hosting   and how all of it works, but knowing is just half  the battle the other half is the hard part of   actually going out and hosting your website. For  your convenience I'll leave my top recommended   companies in the description down below and if  you buy it through the links you'll also get a   discount. So, congratulations on getting that  knowledge and I'll see you in the next video! you
