Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are various varieties of shared web hosting services appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To choose the most adequate shared web hosting service for your web site, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.

The most appropriate alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per user seriously. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different email address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain a package that will have the specifications your site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at eTexHosting, offer an extensive choice of shared web hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a less powerful package and you need more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain web sites, especially online shops, need applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that need complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both services traditionally offer complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting server accounts sport different specs based on what the hosting company has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete web hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Before You Select...

Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the stable performance of a online portal.
