Web hosting is the process of using a hosting server to host a website and make it available for everyone on the internet. There are many types of hosting available, such as shared hosting. While most web hosting providers offer similar packages, the more popular a website is, the more resources it will need to function effectively.
YISolutions helps you scale your hosting package as and when you need it, so you can start with a simple shared hosting plan and gradually upgrade to a cloud hosting or even a VPS hosting plan later.
Most common types of hosting include:
Shared hosting: Shared hosting means that multiple different websites are all hosted on the same server, with each user being allocated a certain amount of storage and a certain amount of resources. This is often the best option for hobbyists and bloggers as it’s often the most affordable option available.
VPS hosting: A virtual private server (VPS) setup is the next version up from a shared hosting setup. A VPS generally uses more powerful hardware, making it possible for multiple users to use the same hardware independently.
Cloud hosting: If you need access to more server power, opting for this type of hosting could be just for you. Since cloud hosting allows you to use various interlinked servers that are designed to take over from each other if needed, you’re sure to have 100% uptime for your website.
Dedicated hosting: When you have a dedicated hosting plan, you get a server that’s dedicated to a single website. You’re not sharing storage or resources with others. A dedicated hosting setup is usually recommended for professional web admins and developers.
Your website is a collection of files and (in most cases) databases that are shown to your visitors as they browse around your site. YISolutions, like most web hosts, allocates storage space for your website’s files and databases on a shared server.
When you sign up for YISolutions managed hosting plans, you’ll receive login details to access your hosting account’s admin panel (aptly named the cPanel). In the cPanel, you can manage all things related to your website, from hosting to domains, databases, files, and so on

When you’re browsing the web, and you type in a URL (i.e., http://www.yisolutions.com), your web browser queries that domain name (i.e., uisolutions.com) and asks it where the website is hosted. The browser then loads up the contents that are stored there.
All websites and online stores you visit consist of a domain name and a web host. The easiest way to picture it is to think of the domain name as the address and the hosting as the physical building.
A virtual private server (VPS) is a cross between shared hosting solutions and a dedicated server. It’s not quite the best of both worlds, but it is a good compromise, especially if you’re keen on keeping your hosting costs down while having a bit more power. Some people compare shared hosting to living in an apartment complex and VPS hosting to living in a condo.
With shared hosting, you’re sharing a server and the resources of the same server with a bunch of other websites. With a VPS, you’re still sharing some resources (mainly ones determined by the hardware). Still, the software itself is set up so that one machine acts like multiple dedicated servers, providing a separate virtual server for every user.
For web admins, using a VPS means that they get the administrative power of a dedicated hosting setup, including the ability to customize their server to suit them.
Yes – and we actively encourage it. If you’re using a popular content management system such as WordPress, we have tools available that make it easy and fast to switch between web host platforms. Even if you’re not using a typical CMS or simply need a little help along the way, our support team is at hand to guide you through the process, free of charge.
Yes, you can. If you want to, you can purchase domain names from other domain registrars and point them to your server with YISolutions. If you want to keep your domain name and your website hosting together under a single provider – which we’d recommend for convenience and easier troubleshooting – transferring an existing domain name to YISolutions is also possible. Simply reach out to our support crew, and they will help you out.
Upgrading your web hosting service to another hosting plan is easy with YISolutions. We pride ourselves on having no downtime during upgrading, meaning that your website will be up and running the whole time. This way, you won’t have to worry about losing revenue or providing users with a bad browsing experience.
Most often, you need WordPress hosting for a website created and managed via WordPress. That’s because WordPress is a website builder and a content management system, first and foremost, not a platform built for hosting website files and databases like YISolutions.
With proper hosting, you can optimize your website’s performance, and content management needs with the right platforms.
Yes, YISolutions has a custom-developed tool that allows you to install over 100+ apps to your website in a single click. Not only does our auto-installer save you time, but it also makes it faster and easier to try out different scripts for your website and find out the best ones for your needs.
Nope, YISolutions makes it as easy as possible for beginners to pick up the basics as you go. So many of the simple tasks, like setting up an email address connected to your domain names or installing a content management system, can be done with just a few clicks and with no existing technical knowledge whatsoever.
While it’s easy to pick up the basics and get going, our web hosting services are perfectly suitable for experienced web developers. After all, we believe that there’s no reason why something can’t be both user-friendly and powerful at the same time.
If you’re struggling, there’s no shortage of online guides to walk you through the most common tasks that you might want to carry out. Our customer support team is also more than happy to help if you get stuck.
