Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most proper shared hosting service for your website, you must access what server-side software it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be covered.

The most adequate option for small size websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per individual radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting vendor to another, supplying different quotas of server storage space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can order a package that will offer the features your website actually requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the website. We, at iMatrix ICT Group, offer an immense variety of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even come with pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a cheaper plan and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful account demands only a click.

Shared website hosting - Drawbacks

A weakness of the shared hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Certain web pages, chiefly web storefronts, require software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software platforms that do not need full root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that need complete root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in absolutely the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions normally provide server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting company. Like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server accounts comprise different specifications depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server plan offers guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual hosting server is easier to handle as it comprises a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be used by trained customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, certain companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they run web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Opting for the top hosting package is essential as it can have an effect on the proper functioning of a website. Prior to settling on a plan, compare the pros and cons, survey completely all the prerequisites for the web page to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
