Quality Shared Hosting

There are various sorts of shared hosting packages suitable for different web sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your online portal, you must estimate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

The most appropriate alternative for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, offering different quotas of hard disk space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain an account that will include the features your website really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Hepsia, offer a big array of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a basic account and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich account involves only a click.

Shared website hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some sites, chiefly online shops, request applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not require full server root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that need complete root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Web Servers

Both services normally offer full server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts have different specs depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS server web hosting account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
