Top Hosting

There are different types of hosting accounts appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the hosting platform they require. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most relevant alternative for small sized online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per customer substantially. There are different web hosting packages varying from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of disk storage and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will provide the specs your web page indeed requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized package that cannot host the web portal. We, at Steele Design Studio limited, offer a great assortment of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-cost account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account requires just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Weak Sides

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Certain websites, above all web stores, request applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not request root-level access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that require complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated solution and it operates in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly give full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server web hosting plans comprise different specs based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS server plan includes guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for short periods of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it comes with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Yet, certain hosts provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run dedicated server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Choosing...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable work of a site. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, appraise completely all the prerequisites for the online portal to function properly, especially if it is script-powered.
