Quality Website Hosting

There are different types of website hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in relation to the resources or the website hosting platform they demand. To pick the most adequate website hosting service for your website, you must evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.

The most adequate alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one web host to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy an account that will offer the specifications your web site actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the web page. We, at iM Design and Hosting, offer a large selection of website hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more features, upgrading to a better account requires just a click.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Certain web sites, mainly web stores, request applications to be available on the web server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not need full root-level access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that require full root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it functions in precisely the same way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both environments usually provide full root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans involve diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual server hosting package offers guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short intervals of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to manage as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by proficient customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they execute hosting server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Prior To Choosing...
