Quality Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need. To select the most proper web hosting service for your website, you have to calculate 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 demands that may need to be answered.

The most appropriate option for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per individual drastically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk storage and traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can get a plan that will include the specifications your web portal actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at The Blog Host, offer a great assortment of web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you require more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich package involves just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A negative side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Certain web sites, particularly online stores, require software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not need root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that need complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services normally give full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans come with different specifications depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private web server plan includes guaranteed web space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be expanded for short stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to administer as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by competent users.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
