Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different kinds of shared web hosting packages appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the shared web hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant shared web hosting service for your online portal, you need to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

The most relevant alternative for small sized sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the overall cost per user significantly. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, offering different quotas of storage space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain an account that will include the resources your web portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Axnhost.com, offer an extensive collection of shared web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-end package and you need more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific web pages, mainly online storefronts, need software applications to be installed on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software applications that do not demand full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that request root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it operates in an absolutely identical manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both platforms generally give full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts involve diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting package offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for short spells of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is easier to run as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some web hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Before You Opt...
