Quality Hosting

There are different sorts of hosting accounts appropriate for different websites with regard to the system resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most relevant hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.

The most appropriate option for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per individual substantially. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting company to another, providing different amounts of data storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a plan that will include the specs your web page actually requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Name Is On, offer a large assortment of hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-end plan and you need more system resources, moving to a high-end account requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Points

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given online portals, particularly web stores, demand applications to be installed on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not need complete root-level access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that request root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both platforms traditionally give full root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting packages come with different specifications based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual server web hosting package offers guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spans of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to cope with as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient users.

Dedicated Servers

However, given companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.

Prior To Opting...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can influence the proper operation of a web site. Before choosing a plan, compare the pros and cons, explore carefully all the prerequisites for the website to run properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
