Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different kinds of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate shared web hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

The most adequate option for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per person substantially. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, offering different quotas of data storage and monthly traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will include the resources your site actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Simmetry Communications, offer a large selection of shared web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-cost package and you need more resources, moving to a more advanced account requires only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Given web portals, mainly online stores, need applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not request full root-level access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in exactly the same way.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions typically include root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans include diverse specifications based on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual web server hosting plan has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to manage as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by skilled clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they carry out dedicated web server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Select...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can affect the proper work of a website. Before choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the web page to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
