Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your website, you need to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

The most suitable option for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors 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 considerably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of server storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase an account that will have the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Enterprise Technology, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low grade account and you need more resources, moving to a more powerful account takes just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Disadvantages

A downside of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific web portals, mainly web storefronts, need applications to be activated on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not request complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions typically come with complete root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Much like the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages come with different functionalities based on what the hosting company has to offer. A Virtual Private Server hosting account includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spells of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by trained users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, certain companies provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.
