What is hosting? photo


In our modern era, as an increasing number of companies strive to establish their online presence, the choice of the right hosting provider becomes of paramount importance. It's not merely a matter of selecting a platform for hosting your website or application; it's the foundation upon which your project will be built. The stability and speed of your online project depend directly on the quality and features of the chosen hosting.

In the following sections, we will introduce you to popular hosting types and their specific characteristics.

Web Hosting

Web hosting is the service that enables your website to make its presence felt on the internet. Among our services, this is the most cost-effective and straightforward option for hosting your web service.

The primary task of web hosting is to ensure the round-the-clock availability of your website. Moreover, the right choice of web hosting directly impacts data processing speed.

We offer a dedicated web hosting service that places your website on powerful and modern equipment located in France, ensuring swift access to web resources.

Special attention is given to safeguarding client data. Our team ensures the security and integrity of your files, protecting them from external threats.

To choose the appropriate web hosting option, evaluate the expected resource consumption and your budget. This will help you make the optimal choice for your project. For example, if you are just starting your startup, our budget-friendly "Start" plan at €1.2 per month is an excellent choice.

Virtual Servers (VPS/VDS)

A virtual server (or virtual machine) is a software emulation of a real computer, representing a separate space within a physical server. Thanks to virtualization software, one physical server can support multiple virtual machines, each having its own operating system and resources.

All our virtual servers are created using KVM virtualization, allowing resources to be allocated and optimized individually for each client. However, the flexibility of virtual servers is another key feature – in case of resource shortage on a specific plan, our staff can always add the necessary capacity to ensure optimal performance.

Who Benefits from Virtual Servers?

  • Small and medium-sized enterprises: Ideal for those in need of reliable server solutions but not ready to invest in expensive infrastructure.
  • Gaming projects: Hosting your game server is a breeze, with the ability to install any game server you prefer.
  • Developers: Virtual machines provide an ideal environment for testing and developing applications.
  • Educational institutions: Conduct research without the need for additional hardware.
  • Large corporations: Optimize IT infrastructure and reduce server maintenance costs.

To select the appropriate virtual server plan, calculate the required resource quantities and assess your budget. The first point is not binding, as you can always start with a plan with fewer resources and then upgrade to higher specifications.

Virtual servers offer an optimal balance between performance, flexibility, and cost. At SpaceCore, you can choose the most suitable option for your project, with a guarantee of 100% resource quality. If you are not satisfied with the server's performance, we offer a money-back guarantee.

Dedicated Servers

A dedicated server is a physical server rented exclusively for individual use. This differs from web hosting or virtual servers, where performance is shared among multiple users. With a dedicated server, the client has full control over all resources and software installed on the server.

The main advantages of dedicated servers are their performance and stability. All resources are provided solely to you. A dedicated server is "clean" hardware on which you can install any software you require.

Who Benefits from Dedicated Servers?

  • Large websites and portals: If your website attracts many visitors or features complex applications, a dedicated server guarantees speed and stability.
  • Gaming servers: When your server is so large that VDS resources are insufficient.
  • Server applications: Running critical applications that require stability and/or high computational power.
  • Virtualization: Host your own virtual machines for your business.

If your planned project doesn't have specific requirements, we recommend considering your budget. Since all our dedicated servers are quite powerful, the cost depends directly on performance or the number of storage devices.


We have examined the fundamental types of hosting services and are prepared to provide you with the following comparison based on real client cases:

  • Web Hosting: Ideal for startups, small online stores, or informational websites.
  • Virtual Servers: A balanced solution for medium-sized businesses, gaming projects, or technical developments.
  • Dedicated Servers: The most expensive and reliable option designed for large businesses and resource-intensive computations.

SpaceCore offers all these types of services. If you want to learn more, please contact us. We are ready to provide you with the optimal solution that matches your needs and budget.
