Quality Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the best shared hosting service for your website, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

The most relevant alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per client significantly. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of server storage space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a plan that will provide the specifications your site indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the website. We, at Hosting EG, offer a large assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-end plan and you require more features, upgrading to a more powerful plan involves just a click.

Shared website hosting - Shortcomings

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Certain sites, especially web stores, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate solely software that does not need server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that request complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually provide full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server packages comprise different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spans of time provided that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to handle as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by trained users.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, some hosting firms offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the stable functioning of a web page. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the requirements for the web portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
