Hosted Solutions

What are Hosted Services?

Hosted services is a general term for technology services with infrastructure located outside the customer’s physical location. The servers providing the services may be on-site at the vendor’s physical location—these are considered “traditional” hosted services—or in the cloud. Cloud-hosted solutions mean the infrastructure is located at a cloud vendor’s data center.

A traditional hosted services provider owns and operates the infrastructure at a private location. These hosted services are accessed by the customer through a web browser and a secure log in, or sometimes through a direct network connection, such as a virtual private network (VPN), remote desktop, etc.

Hosted services can include anything from email to software as a service (SaaS), storage, security, and more. The infrastructure that supports hosted services includes software, network capacity, storage, hardware, servers, and networking components. This allows customers to focus on their business, and not be worried or invest in pricey infrastructure to manage the solutions and services.

There is a wide range of hosted services available. Common examples include:

  • Email hosting services
  • Application hosting services
  • Website hosting services
  • Virtual server hosting services
  • File hosting services
  • Backup solutions
  • Security solutions

Hosted Service Types

All hosted service types surround the basic concept of a website or web service, but they are generally grouped as follows:

  • Web Hosting
    Provides continuous, uninterrupted Internet access; a unique collection of software programs or services (like FTP and email); and an environment for working with various programming languages (like PHP, .NET and Java).
  • File Hosting
    Hosts file storage facilities, rather than Web applications or sites. A secure file hosting service is ideal for storing files, reducing or eliminating data theft, loss or corruption.
  • Image Hosting
    The host server stores image files or other flat files, which permits easy and scalable sharing, often in the form of a content delivery network (CDN) that optimizes delivery.
  • Email Hosting
    Either via an outsourced server such as Microsoft Exchange or via a natively web-based email service like gmail.
