Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web portals when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be fulfilled.

The best alternative for small sized web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per person seriously. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting firm to another, providing different quotas of server space and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy a plan that will offer the features your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at xhosters, offer a wide collection of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a basic account and you need more resources, moving to a high-end package takes just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given web portals, especially online shops, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not request full server root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that need root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it performs in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both platforms commonly offer root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts sport diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web hosting server plan contains guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spans of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to tackle as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper performance of a web site. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the prerequisites for the web portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
