Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different kinds of shared web hosting packages appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant shared web hosting service for your web portal, you must evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.

The most adequate option for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage and traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specifications your website actually needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at DNA SuperHost, offer a large selection of shared web hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a basic plan and you require more functionalities, moving to a more powerful package demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A negative side of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain web sites, particularly web stores, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that need root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it acts in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally come with full root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans have different features based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting account has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short stretches of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to administer as it includes a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, some providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.

Prior To Choosing...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable performance of a online portal. Prior to selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the requirements for the web page to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
