Quality Hosting

There are various types of hosting packages suitable for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To choose the most proper hosting service for your website, you need to access what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be fulfilled.

The best choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per person drastically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, delivering different amounts of web storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a package that will offer the specifications your web page actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at EtqanIS, offer a huge choice of hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a less powerful account and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end account demands only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Disadvantages

A negative side of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Given web pages, above all online stores, require applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not request server root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that require complete server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it performs in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions typically provide full root access and can be restarted through a software tool by the user, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans come with different specifications depending on what the web hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server web hosting plan offers guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short stretches of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, certain web hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.

Prior To Electing...

Opting for the top hosting package is important as it can affect the proper performance of a website. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, survey carefully all the requirements for the online portal to work properly, especially if it is script-driven.
