Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting plans suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

The most optimal alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per individual radically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different amounts of storage space and monthly bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will have the features your site really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the web site. We, at Interweb Machine, offer an immense choice of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves only a click.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given websites, chiefly online stores, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that require root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it behaves in a strictly identical way.

VPS Web Servers

Both environments usually give full server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting company. Like the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages contain different functionalities depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual server hosting package has guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief stretches of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual hosting server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be utilized by trained customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
