Quality Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be answered.

The most optimal alternative for small scale sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per user radically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of disk storage space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a package that will have the specifications your site really demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small account that cannot host the site. We, at Host2net Limited, offer a huge selection of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you demand more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account demands only a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points

A downside of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Certain web sites, chiefly online storefronts, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete server root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that need full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions generally come with full root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages comprise different specifications depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short periods of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting providers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
