Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting services appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the best shared hosting service for your website, you must reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared Web Hosting - Strong Points

The most proper option for small sized websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per customer markedly. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, supplying different amounts of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will provide the features your website actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the website. We, at Elasticis Hosting+, offer a wide selection of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more advanced plan demands just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Certain online portals, especially online shops, require applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software applications that do not need full root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that request root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it functions in an exactly identical way.

Both platforms usually provide full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server packages sport different specs depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private web hosting server plan has guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short stretches of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS server is easier to run as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by qualified customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.

Before You Opt...
