Quality Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you must access what server-side software it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The most optimal option for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per user radically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of data storage and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will have the specifications your web site really demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Tamaraw Hosting, offer a wide assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for private or small business portals that even include pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a less powerful package and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich account demands only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Certain web sites, especially online storefronts, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not need root-level access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that require full root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in strictly the same way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both environments commonly give complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include diverse features depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting server account contains guaranteed data space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is easier to manipulate as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Still, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Before You Elect...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can affect the stable work of a site. Prior to choosing an account, compare the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-based.
