Quality Web Hosting

There are various sorts of web hosting packages suitable for different web sites in terms of the system resources or the web hosting environment they require. To pick the most appropriate web hosting service for your online portal, you need to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

The most optimal option for small web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per customer significantly. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk storage and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get an account that will offer the specs your website really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at MicrosolutionsConsulting.com, offer a great collection of web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a basic plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more powerful plan involves only a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Negative Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific web portals, especially online stores, request software applications to be available on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that need server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in exactly the same way.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually offer full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans come with different specifications depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS web server hosting account contains guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spells of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform hosting server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the proper performance of a website. Before settling on a package, weigh the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the web portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-based.
