Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The best choice for small scale online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per person substantially. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different quotas of web storage and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the specifications your online portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small account that cannot host the website. We, at 95Dollar.Website, offer a large array of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you demand more resources, moving to a more powerful plan demands just a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given web pages, especially online stores, need applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not request full server root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in an absolutely identical way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both solutions commonly give server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans contain different functionalities based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server package has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short stretches of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual server is easier to run as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Before You Decide...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the proper work of a web page.
