Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The most adequate choice for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall cost per person critically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of disk space and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a package that will provide the features your website in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at 1hosts, offer a great collection of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a cheaper package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Shortcomings

A negative side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain sites, chiefly online storefronts, require applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not demand complete root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that demand complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services usually include server root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting packages have different specifications based on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS plan includes guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short periods of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
