Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

The most relevant choice for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per customer markedly. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting company to another, providing different amounts of web space and web traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a package that will offer the resources your web site actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Nebula One, offer an immense selection of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you require more resources, moving to a more feature-rich account involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software. Specific web sites, particularly web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not need root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that need full root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions commonly come with root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts come with different specs based on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual hosting server plan offers guaranteed disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for short stretches of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A private virtual web server is easier to cope with as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by trained users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated server management assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.

Prior To Opting...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web site. Prior to choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the prerequisites for the web page to run properly, especially if it is script-driven.
