The most optimal alternative for small size web pages with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per person considerably. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, offering different amounts of disk storage space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a package that will include the specifications your site really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Hostingam, offer a great assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low priced account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software. Some sites, above all web storefronts, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software that does not demand complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that request server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally come with complete root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting accounts comprise diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server plan offers guaranteed server space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief stretches of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to administer as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be used by qualified clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Prior To Opting...
