Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting services suitable for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the best shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be met.

The most appropriate choice for small size websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per user significantly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of data storage and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a package that will provide the resources your online portal actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the web portal. We, at SSDHOSTING, offer a huge variety of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-price account and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A negative side of the shared hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software. Given websites, mainly online storefronts, require applications to be activated on the server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software applications that do not demand server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that request complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it acts in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both services traditionally come with server root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting packages have different functionalities depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual web server package has guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short stretches of time in case there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to handle as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by qualified users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Prior To Choosing...

Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the stable work of a online portal.
