Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most relevant shared hosting service for your web site, you must reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be met.

The most adequate alternative for small scale web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of web space and monthly traffic, different mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can purchase a package that will offer the specs your web page really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the site. We, at JB1 Hosting, offer an immense choice of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low grade plan and you demand more features, moving to a high-end plan involves only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Given web pages, mainly web stores, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not demand complete server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that need root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in strictly the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms typically come with server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans involve different specs depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting account has guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief stretches of time if there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out dedicated web server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.

Before You Choose...

Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a online portal. Before choosing an account, compare the pros and cons, survey carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
