Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting services suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the best shared hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be met.

The best alternative for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per customer significantly. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy a plan that will include the features your web site really needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at WebPage 4 All, offer an immense selection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a cheaper package and you need more features, moving to a more advanced account demands just a click.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A drawback of the shared hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Specific web sites, particularly web shops, require software applications to be installed on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate solely software platforms that do not request complete root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that request server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly give server root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server accounts sport diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server web hosting package includes guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is easier to manage as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by trained customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Deciding...

Selecting the top hosting plan is important as it can have an effect on the proper functioning of a web page. Before opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the preconditions for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
