Quality Hosting

There are different kinds of hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you must estimate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.

The most relevant choice for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer drastically. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one hosting corporation to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will offer the specs your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot host the web site. We, at Elias Hosting, offer a big choice of hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a basic package and you demand more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich account requires just a click.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A drawback of the shared hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific sites, above all online storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not require complete root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that need full server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in exactly the same way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms generally offer full root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server packages come with diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting account includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief stretches of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to manage as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by competent users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement dedicated web hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.

Prior To Deciding...

Settling on the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a online portal. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the preconditions for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
