Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web site, you have to estimate 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 special requirements that may need to be answered.

The most relevant alternative for small sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per user considerably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of server space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will include the features your web page really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Creative Web Host, offer an immense assortment of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Inconveniences

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software. Specific websites, chiefly web storefronts, need applications to be available on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software that does not demand complete server root access.

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in precisely the same way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services traditionally come with full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages include diverse features depending on what the hosting company offers. A virtual web server hosting package includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short periods of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement dedicated server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.

Prior To Choosing...

Opting for the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a site. Before selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, study completely all the prerequisites for the site to run properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
