Quality Web Hosting

There are different sorts of web hosting packages suitable for different sites in relation to the system resources or the web hosting platform they require. To pick the most adequate web hosting service for your online portal, you have to access what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

The most optimal option for small sized online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per client markedly. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a package that will provide the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web page. We, at Solomon Goldman, offer a vast variety of web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given websites, above all online stores, need applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate solely software programs that do not require full root-level access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that demand complete root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it performs in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Servers

Both platforms normally come with root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans have diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server package offers guaranteed web storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for short stretches of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to run as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by trained clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Before You Opt...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can influence the stable work of a web portal. Before settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, survey thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to function properly, especially if it is script-based.
