Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting packages suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Positive Aspects

The most proper alternative for small sized online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per client seriously. There are different web hosting plans differing from one host to another, providing different quotas of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a package that will offer the specs your web page actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the web portal. We, at , offer an extensive selection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a basic account and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced plan takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given websites, chiefly online shops, need software applications to be available on the web server for them to function, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not need server root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that demand full root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it acts in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both platforms generally come with complete root access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans contain diverse specifications based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS package contains guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short periods of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to run as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they carry out server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Selecting the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to picking a package, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the preconditions for the web site to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
