Quality Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the best shared hosting service for your web page, you must evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Benefits
5 websites hosted
Unlimited websites hosted
The best alternative for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per user substantially. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will include the resources your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the web page. We, at Gower Power Solutions, offer a big collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low priced plan and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful account takes just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Drawbacks
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some web portals, above all web stores, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete server root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that demand full root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in an exactly identical way.
VPS Web Servers
Both environments traditionally give full server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages contain different specs based on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server hosting plan contains guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to tackle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by qualified users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they run web hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
