Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your online portal, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

The most relevant option for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per user significantly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the specifications your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot host the web portal. We, at MTWS, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-end package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced package demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Some web sites, chiefly online shops, require software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand complete server root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that demand root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it operates in strictly the same way.

VPSs

Both environments commonly provide full root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts contain different features based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web server hosting account offers guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief spans of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to run as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by competent users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Selecting the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable work of a web site. Before opting for a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the web site to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
