Quality Web Hosting

There are various sorts of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant web hosting service for your website, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

The most suitable alternative for small size web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per client radically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one company to another, offering different quotas of storage space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can obtain a package that will include the specs your site really requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the online portal. We, at Domain400, offer a great selection of web hosting packages suitable for private or small business pages that even offer pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a low-price plan and you need more features, moving to a more advanced plan involves just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Signs

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Certain sites, chiefly online shops, need software applications to be present on the server for them to run, and with a shared hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not need root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that demand root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in exactly the same way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally provide full root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server packages have different specifications based on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spells of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, certain hosting firms provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
