Quality Web Hosting

There are various kinds of web hosting services appropriate for different websites in relation to the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your web portal, you have to access what server-side software it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be covered.

The most appropriate choice for small sized web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per customer seriously. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will provide the resources your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Zoutsos Web Hosting and DNS, offer a wide choice of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business pages that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a cheaper plan and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Weak Points

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Specific web sites, particularly online storefronts, request software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not demand server root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in a precisely identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both services commonly give full root-level access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server plans have diverse specs based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A virtual private hosting server plan offers guaranteed disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short stretches of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to manage as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be utilized by competent users.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain hosts provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they run dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Elect...

Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable functioning of a web page. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, study completely all the prerequisites for the site to function properly, especially if it is script-driven.
