Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting services appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.

The most appropriate choice for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per customer substantially. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one provider to another, offering different quotas of disk storage and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get an account that will have the features your web site in fact demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Cachaii Inc., offer an immense collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-price plan and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account involves only a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Weaknesses

A shortcoming of the shared hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Specific web sites, mainly web shops, request software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not need complete server root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that require complete root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it works in a strictly identical manner.

VPSs

Both platforms commonly provide full root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts involve different features based on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual web hosting server plan includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief spells of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS web server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, certain web hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting services where they implement dedicated web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Choosing...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the proper work of a online portal. Prior to opting for a package, compare the pros and cons, examine completely all the requirements for the web portal to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
