Quality Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting plans suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most adequate web hosting service for your web portal, you must evaluate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The best alternative for small size sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per client significantly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different amounts of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will have the resources your online portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at HostMe4Life, offer a great selection of web hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you need more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account demands just a click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific web sites, mainly web shops, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can install only software applications that do not require complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web sites that need full root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services generally come with full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans sport different features depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS web server hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for short spells of time provided 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 using, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A private virtual web server is simpler to cope with as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, given hosts offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they carry out web server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
