Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your website, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

The most relevant choice for small sized web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per client considerably. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one hosting provider to another, offering different amounts of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will have the resources your website indeed demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the site. We, at WebServer247, offer a huge array of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low-cost account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account requires only a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A negative side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Given sites, especially online shops, require applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not demand complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that require full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in exactly the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both solutions generally provide root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting plans come with different features depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting account includes guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spans of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to administer as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, given web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
