Quality Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting packages suitable for different sites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

The most relevant choice for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, providing different quotas of data storage and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get an account that will have the features your web portal really requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at VBS Business Tech Solutions, offer a wide variety of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Certain web sites, chiefly web stores, require software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not demand root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that require full root 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 hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in absolutely the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally give full server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans comprise diverse characteristics based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server hosting account has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short intervals of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to handle as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some web hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
