Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting services appropriate for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the best shared hosting service for your web site, you have to estimate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

The most appropriate choice for small scale web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per client considerably. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one host to another, furnishing different quotas of server space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will provide the features your web portal in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at SrbHost, offer a vast variety of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-end package and you require more functionalities, moving to a better package demands just a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A drawback of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Some web portals, particularly online stores, request applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not need full root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that demand complete root-level access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it runs in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions usually give root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server accounts contain different characteristics depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS plan includes guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short intervals of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra service.

Before You Opt...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web portal.
