Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web page, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be met.

The most relevant option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per customer critically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get an account that will offer the features your web site in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Web Hosting Dorks, offer a huge selection of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a basic package and you require more system resources, upgrading to a high-end package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides

A negative side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Specific websites, above all online shops, need applications to be present on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not request full root-level access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that require root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it works in precisely the same way.

VPS Servers

Both environments commonly include root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans include diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS server web hosting package includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spells of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS server is simpler to tackle as it ships with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Before You Select...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can affect the stable functioning of a web site.
