Quality Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different web sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your web site, you need to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

The most relevant option for small scale online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per client considerably. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a plan that will offer the specs your web page actually needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Mid Georgia Hosting, offer a wide variety of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-price package and you demand more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich account requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A disadvantage of the shared hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Some websites, especially web storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install only software programs that do not need server root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that demand full root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it works in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually include server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans sport diverse characteristics based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual private web server package contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spells of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to administer as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, some providers provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Electing...

Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the proper work of a web site. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
