Top Hosting

There are different types of hosting services suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they require. To pick the most appropriate hosting service for your web site, you must calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

Shared web hosting - Perquisites

The best choice for small sized online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per person radically. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, delivering different quotas of disk space and traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will offer the resources your web page really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at EtqanIS, offer a great choice of hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a better account demands only a click.

Shared Hosting - Negative Aspects

A shortcoming of the shared hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some sites, mainly online shops, need software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand complete root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For websites that request complete root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it works in an absolutely identical manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both solutions normally provide full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated hosting plans have diverse characteristics depending on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private web server account includes guaranteed server space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief periods of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to cope with as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by experienced users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they implement dedicated hosting server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.

Prior To Electing...

Settling on the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the proper functioning of a site. Before picking an account, compare the pros and cons, review carefully all the requirements for the web site to function properly, particularly if it is script-based.
