Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be answered.

The most proper alternative for small scale web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, providing different amounts of disk storage and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for an account that will have the specs your website indeed needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small account that cannot host the web portal. We, at Techtrum Technologies, offer a vast array of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a basic account and you need more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Sides

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Specific web sites, particularly web stores, require software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that need full root access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it performs in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both solutions usually offer full root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans come with diverse specs based on what the hosting supplier offers. A private virtual hosting server package has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short spells of time provided that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to cope with as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain providers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Before You Opt...

Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a site.
