Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be satisfied.

The best alternative for small scale websites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per user critically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different quotas of web space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for a plan that will include the specifications your web page really requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at HostExcel, offer a large array of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-end plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a high-end plan requires just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Given web sites, above all online shops, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software that does not need complete root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that request full root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both environments generally offer root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages comprise diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual server hosting account includes guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief spans of time if there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform dedicated server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
