Quality Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages when it comes to the resources or the web hosting environment they need. To pick the most adequate web hosting service for your web portal, you must estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.

The best alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per client substantially. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of data space and bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for an account that will offer the resources your website really demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the site. We, at MEGAHOST, offer a vast choice of web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low-cost package and you require more system resources, moving to a better account requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Some websites, mainly online stores, request software applications to be available on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software programs that do not need complete root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web sites that require full server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it functions in strictly the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments commonly give root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages come with different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account offers guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief spans of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled users.

Dedicated Servers

However, given hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they execute server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
