Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your web site, you need to judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be satisfied.

The most relevant choice for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per customer considerably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting firm to another, providing different quotas of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will offer the features your site in fact needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Host54, offer a vast variety of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package demands only a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Specific sites, above all online shops, request applications to be activated on the server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software programs that do not request full server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that request server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it acts in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both solutions typically offer server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages comprise diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual web hosting server account has guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief spells of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to handle as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Opting...

Opting for the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an effect on the stable work of a site. Before picking a package, compare the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to work properly, especially if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which is the best shared hosting service for you, consult with our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
