Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting packages suitable for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the best shared hosting service for your site, you have to evaluate what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.

The most optimal alternative for small sized websites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per person substantially. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, supplying different amounts of server storage space and bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy an account that will have the features your web site actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot host the web page. We, at QiPlaB, offer a big assortment of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-price package and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan demands just a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Given websites, chiefly online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the server for them to function, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate solely software that does not demand root-level access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that need complete root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually give complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts involve different features based on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual web server package includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief stretches of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to manage as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, certain web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
