The Internet is flooded with sites providing hosting services. In store you can use these sites to upload your websites on the World Wide Web. For this, you can take the services of a dedicated server or rent server space at a very cheap and affordable price. Some hosting such as personal hosting is free of cost, but the features are restricted in this. Hosting sites work on two different kinds of platforms the first is a window-based platform and the second is a LINUX-based platform. The LINUX-based platform is relatively cheaper as compared to win those-based platform. This is because Linux is open sourced operating system, which means you can download it, free of cost, from the Internet. LINUX servers are generally found to be very stable and unfaltering.
There are various features like random access memory, bandwidth and server space allocated to you by a LINUX VPS. Moreover a LINUX VPS offers you more security as you have your own allocated server space which is independent from the other users. You can also be assured that there will be no system abuse by other users affecting the working of your websites. In some servers due to too many users the traffic is always high. This means that your websites will take, a high uploading time, which may end up adversely affecting your business. Linux-based platforms are very efficient, having an uptime time of almost 99.9%.
Some businesses also require conferencing and video facilities. One of the most effective Linux servers which are being used, are red5 servers. Red5 servers have extremely high video and audio streaming. Therefore, these types of LINUX VPS can be used for your various official and business activities. Red5 servers and hosting can be availed of from the Internet free of cost or by paying a small charge. Red5 servers usually provide security as well as stability. You can make your audios and videos to stream faster. The faster the videos are, the more beneficial they are for your websites. Red5 servers are generally low-priced for a very simple reason that Linux is an open source operating system.
One of the LINUX sewers which are highly demanded is jabber servers. The exchanging of data through jabber protocols and server is relatively very safe. XMPP is also the name of the technology given to jabber protocol. Jabber makes use of XML protocols.Jabber makes the working of various interactive messengers such as G mail, Hotmail, yahoo and msn possible. Therefore the market for Linux VPS and Linux servers such as red5 server and jabber server are constantly growing due to its high user demand and cost effectiveness.
