Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the best shared hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be satisfied.

The most suitable choice for small scale sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per individual markedly. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one provider to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk space and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a package that will include the resources your site in fact demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Hosting, offer a great array of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Shortcomings

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific web portals, especially online stores, demand applications to be available on the web server for them to run, and with a shared hosting package, you can install only software that does not request root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that require server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both environments traditionally come with root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages comprise different specs depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS server web hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to cope with as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
