Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are various varieties of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate shared web hosting service for your web site, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be covered.

The most relevant alternative for small scale sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per person radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one host to another, providing different quotas of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will provide the specifications your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at Blue Gel Media, offer a big selection of shared web hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you need more features, moving to a more advanced package demands only a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some sites, particularly web shops, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install solely software applications that do not require complete server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that need full server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in a precisely identical manner.

Virtual Servers

Both services traditionally include complete root access and can be restarted via a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting plans involve different functionalities depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private hosting server plan has guaranteed data storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief intervals of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Opt...

Picking the top hosting plan is important as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to choosing a plan, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the prerequisites for the site to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
