Quality Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting packages suitable for different sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your web site, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most appropriate choice for small sized web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per customer substantially. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, furnishing different amounts of data space and web traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy an account that will offer the specs your online portal really demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web portal. We, at AN1 Technology Group, offer a huge choice of web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a basic account and you demand more features, upgrading to a high-end package demands just a click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Some websites, especially web shops, need software applications to be installed on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can install solely software applications that do not demand complete root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that demand root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it works in absolutely the same way.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions normally offer full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages contain different characteristics depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting server account contains guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief intervals of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, given web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
