Quality Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your web site, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most appropriate choice for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per individual noticeably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of data space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a package that will provide the specifications your website really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web page. We, at PriceToHost, offer a wide selection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business sites that even include pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more functionalities, moving to a more powerful plan demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Certain web sites, above all web storefronts, require applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software programs that do not need full root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that request root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions usually give complete root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include diverse features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual web server hosting package contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short stretches of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS server is easier to tackle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
