It is a server space provided by VirtoWeb so that you can store your website and all the information, videos, photos and texts related to it. Think of it like this: it’s as if your page was actually “hosted” on our server.

Linux and Windows are operating systems. Linux Hosting is normally configured with an Apache server, which can run different distributions due to its free and open source code and web servers. Windows Hosting runs a version of the IIS (Internet Information Services) server with some native programming languages, such as ASP and .NET.

When choosing the type of Linux or Windows hosting, we choose the operating system of the hosting server, they have no relationship with the operating system used on the computers, whether Windows, MacOS or Linux.

You can use the same Shared Hosting, a Linux website and also a Windows website.

The types of website hosting available are diverse, it is essential to choose a service according to the needs of your projects:

Shared hosting

Shared Website Hosting is the most used on the market, suitable for most institutional websites and blogs, allowing the management of several websites on the same hosting.


VPS stands for Virtual Private Server, it gives more freedom of access, but without all the responsibility of a dedicated server. The VPS Server, Linux or Windows, uses Intel processors and SSD performance. It allows multiple applications to be isolated from each other.

Dedicated server

Among all types of hosting, dedicated server is best for resource-intensive web applications. In this format, you rent an entire server that will work only for your website, without sharing it with anyone else. With it, you combine infrastructure with exclusive resources and high performance.

Cloud Hosting

Cloud Hosting is nothing more than Cloud Hosting. After all, it features the same panel as Shared Website Hosting. The difference is that it offers exclusive features, with more stability and performance. In addition to the control panel, Cloud Hosting offers memory, processing and disk space scaling.

To store files and make them available to be accessed by other computers, a server is needed. Thus, Website Hosting allows a user to use the resources of a server to make a set of files that make up their website available on the internet and which can be accessed by everyone.
