Quality Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting packages suitable for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your site, you must evaluate what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

The most relevant alternative for small websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per individual substantially. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of data storage space and web traffic, different email quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the features your website indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small size package that cannot host the site. We, at Mnistrat Hosting, offer a great assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a low-cost package and you require more features, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Aspects

A weak side of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific web sites, particularly online stores, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not need server root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web portals that demand complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in a precisely identical way.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments usually come with server root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans involve diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS hosting account contains guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spells of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to tackle as it includes a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by trained customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, some web hosting providers offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
