Quality Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting plans appropriate for different websites in regard to the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To select the most optimal web hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.

The most proper option for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per user noticeably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one hosting provider to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will include the resources your web page indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the site. We, at Hepsia, offer a vast selection of web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-end plan and you need more resources, moving to a better package takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Specific websites, especially web shops, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that need root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it operates in an exactly identical way.

Virtual Servers

Both solutions normally come with full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting packages include diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web hosting server plan contains guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spans of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they execute web hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Opting...

Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a online portal. Prior to selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, explore completely all the prerequisites for the web page to work properly, particularly if it is script-based.
