Quality Website Hosting

There are different types of website hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the website hosting environment they demand. To choose the most appropriate website hosting service for your web page, you have to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The most adequate alternative for small size websites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual significantly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one company to another, providing different quotas of data space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a package that will have the specifications your web portal really requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the web page. We, at MyTrustyWebhost, offer a vast collection of website hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low-cost account and you require more system resources, moving to a better plan demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Certain web sites, chiefly web shops, require applications to be available on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software applications that do not need root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that require complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in precisely the same way.

VPS Servers

Both solutions typically offer complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts have different characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual server package contains guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief intervals of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to run as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by competent clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they run hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
