Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting services appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your website, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The most appropriate option for small sized sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per user significantly. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting corporation to another, delivering different amounts of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a plan that will have the resources your online portal really needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web portal. We, at Ekumart Hosting, offer a wide choice of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a less powerful account and you require more resources, moving to a better account takes just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Points

A shortcoming of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Some websites, particularly online stores, need applications to be installed on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software applications that do not require complete root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that demand full root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it runs in an absolutely identical manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both services normally provide root privileges and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server accounts come with different features based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS server web hosting package contains guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is simpler to run as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
