Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different kinds of shared web hosting solutions appropriate for different websites in terms of the resources or the shared web hosting environment they need. To choose the most suitable shared web hosting service for your web page, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

The most adequate alternative for small scale web pages with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per individual seriously. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting supplier to another, offering different quotas of server storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specifications your website in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at BigBMC, offer an immense variety of shared web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low grade plan and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Some online portals, above all web shops, request applications to be available on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not request full server root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that request complete root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in a strictly identical manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments normally come with full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting packages include different characteristics based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A virtual private hosting server package includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short periods of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be utilized by proficient clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting services where they implement web hosting server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra service.

Prior To Selecting...

Picking the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable work of a web site. Before picking a package, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the requirements for the website to run properly, especially if it is script-based. And if you are still unsure which one is the best shared web hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or give us a call - our sales representatives will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
