Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting plans suitable for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the best shared hosting service for your web site, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

The most adequate choice for small size online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per client critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting vendor to another, supplying different amounts of data space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can obtain a package that will provide the specifications your web site in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at WEB Hosting Company, offer an extensive array of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-end account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better package involves just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Downsides

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given websites, especially web shops, require applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software platforms that do not require complete server root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that request full root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it performs in exactly the same way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually include root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans have diverse features depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web server plan contains guaranteed web storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for brief spans of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to administer as it ships with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled clients.

Dedicated Servers

Still, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they complete web server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Before You Opt...

Choosing the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the stable work of a web portal.
