Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The best alternative for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per individual significantly. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of hard disk storage and traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order an account that will have the specifications your online portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at ZBest Hosting, offer an extensive selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low-price package and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced plan requires just a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects

A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Certain web portals, above all web storefronts, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software applications that do not require complete server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that need full root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans come with different specs based on what the hosting company offers. A private virtual server package includes guaranteed web storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief intervals of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to administer as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.

Before You Select...

Picking the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable work of a web portal. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
