Quality Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web pages in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To pick the most suitable shared hosting service for your site, you have to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

The most appropriate option for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall price per client drastically. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one hosting supplier to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for a plan that will have the features your site actually needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at HarryHost, offer a great array of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you start with a cheaper package and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich package requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Given online portals, above all online stores, request applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not request complete root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For online portals that need full root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated server and it behaves in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services normally provide server root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting accounts comprise diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server package contains guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief periods of time if there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.

Picking the top hosting package is important as it can affect the stable operation of a website.
