Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your site, you must access what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.

The most adequate alternative for small scale web portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per user drastically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one host to another, supplying different quotas of server storage and web traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can pay for an account that will have the resources your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Click Hosting, offer a large array of shared hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business pages that even come with pre-installed script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you commence with a low-cost package and you need more system resources, moving to a better account requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Specific sites, especially web stores, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software that does not demand complete server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that demand root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it runs in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments usually come with full root-level access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans comprise different features based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS hosting account includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short spans of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to handle as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by proficient customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they execute dedicated web server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
