Quality Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The most relevant choice for small sized sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per customer substantially. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of data space and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will have the features your web site indeed demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the site. We, at GreatHosts.biz, offer a huge selection of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-cost account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich package involves only a click.

Shared website hosting - Inconveniences

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific web portals, particularly web stores, require applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand full root-level access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that require full root-level access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in a strictly identical manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally offer full server root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans include different specs depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server hosting account offers guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for short intervals of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to handle as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by proficient customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.

Prior To Electing...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an influence on the proper work of a web page. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, review thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
