Quality Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

The most adequate alternative for small online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per customer critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different quotas of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the specs your web page actually needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at FoxWebTools, offer a vast choice of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-price plan and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich package involves only a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given websites, particularly web storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not demand complete root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that demand complete root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in exactly the same manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally include complete root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans come with diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server account contains guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief spans of time provided that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to manipulate as it includes virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, certain web hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
