Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting services suitable for different websites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your site, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The most optimal choice for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one web host to another, providing different amounts of disk storage space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain an account that will offer the specs your web portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at CloutSite Website Hosting Service, offer an enormous selection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you need more features, moving to a more powerful package takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Points

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Certain web sites, chiefly web stores, require applications to be available on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand complete root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that demand server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in precisely the same manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both environments normally offer full server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting accounts come with different features based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS web hosting server account includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be boosted for short periods of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by competent customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they perform web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
