Quality Web Hosting

There are various types of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your web site, you must judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

The most suitable choice for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per client seriously. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different quotas of web storage and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will offer the specs your site indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at Byoservers, offer a huge choice of web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a basic package and you require more resources, upgrading to a more powerful account takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Given web pages, mainly online shops, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software that does not demand complete root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that demand root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both platforms generally come with root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages contain diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A virtual web hosting server account includes guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short spells of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to tackle as it ships with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained customers.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Selecting the top hosting package is vital as it can affect the stable functioning of a online portal. Prior to selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the requirements for the site to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
