Quality Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your site, you have to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be answered.

The most relevant option for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per client substantially. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will provide the features your web portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the web portal. We, at DuoServers Web Hosting, offer a huge array of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business sites that even include pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-price account and you require more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package takes only a click.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Some web pages, above all online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not need complete root access.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web pages that request complete server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in a precisely identical manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms traditionally offer full root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans have different specifications based on what the web hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting account includes guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief periods of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, certain hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Before You Select...

Choosing the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper work of a web portal.
