Quality Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting packages suitable for different web portals in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

The most optimal alternative for small scale websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per person seriously. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one web host to another, providing different amounts of storage space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy an account that will provide the specs your online portal actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small plan that cannot host the web page. We, at OneSource Host, offer a huge choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low-price package and you need more system resources, moving to a more powerful account involves only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Specific online portals, particularly online shops, require applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install solely software programs that do not demand root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that request full root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it runs in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms generally come with full root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans include different specs based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual server package includes guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time in case there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by competent users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out web server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Prior To Choosing...
