Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different websites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your site, you must judge what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

The best option for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per customer significantly. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage space and traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for an account that will include the specs your website indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Get Design Online, offer a wide variety of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a basic package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more powerful package involves only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Downsides

A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Certain sites, particularly web storefronts, require applications to be present on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not request full root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For online portals that request full server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both environments normally come with full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans contain diverse features depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server web hosting plan offers guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief spells of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, some hosting providers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Before You Opt...

Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable work of a website.
