Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

The best alternative for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the overall price per individual significantly. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting company to another, providing different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can buy an account that will provide the specifications your online portal actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Vzone Hosting, offer a vast collection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a basic plan and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced package requires just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Sides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific online portals, above all web shops, need applications to be available on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not require complete root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in an exactly identical way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally give full root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts comprise diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual server web hosting plan contains guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spans of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to handle as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, given providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
