Quality Hosting

There are different kinds of hosting packages appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most proper hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

The most optimal alternative for small web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per person radically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting provider to another, offering different amounts of web storage and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a plan that will have the resources your site really needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Cheap Hosted, offer an enormous collection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a less powerful plan and you require more features, upgrading to a more powerful account demands only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A weakness of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Certain web pages, particularly web storefronts, need applications to be available on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not need full server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that request complete root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it operates in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments traditionally offer server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server plans contain diverse specifications based on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server package includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spans of time in case there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to administer as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Select...

Selecting the top hosting package is important as it can affect the stable functioning of a website. Before choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, appraise carefully all the requirements for the site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
