Quality Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting accounts appropriate for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be fulfilled.

The most suitable alternative for small scale online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per individual seriously. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting firm to another, providing different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a package that will offer the resources your online portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at BSW Hosting, offer a great variety of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web pages 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 low-end plan and you require more resources, upgrading to a high-end account requires only a click.

Shared Hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Some online portals, especially web shops, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not require complete root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Servers

For websites that demand server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it operates in a precisely identical manner.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally give root privileges and can be rebooted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages comprise diverse features based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting account contains guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short intervals of time in case there are spare 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 upgraded by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to tackle as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by practiced clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Before You Decide...

Opting for the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the stable performance of a site.
