Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are various varieties of shared web hosting packages suitable for different web portals in terms of the resources or the shared web hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate shared web hosting service for your web site, you have to access what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

The most optimal choice for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per client radically. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage space and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will include the features your online portal really requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at DomainMonkee.com, offer a vast selection of shared web hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a basic package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better plan demands just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Shortcomings

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Certain sites, chiefly online stores, need applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not require full root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that need complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it functions in absolutely the same way.

VPS Web Servers

Both platforms generally give full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting packages involve different specifications depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS web server hosting package includes guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they run web hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the proper performance of a web page. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, check carefully all the preconditions for the online portal to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
