Quality Shared Hosting

There are various sorts of shared hosting services suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

The most suitable choice for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per user drastically. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, providing different amounts of data space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will have the specifications your online portal in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot host the web page. We, at Totalhost1, offer a large collection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful package and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account involves only a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A shortcoming of the shared hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Some web sites, above all web shops, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not demand root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that require full server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it works in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both services generally come with full server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages contain different specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS web hosting plan includes guaranteed server storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short stretches of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to handle as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run dedicated server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
