Quality Hosting

There are various varieties of hosting services appropriate for different web sites with regard to the resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most proper hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

The most suitable alternative for small websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which diminishes the overall price per individual radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, delivering different quotas of server storage space and web traffic, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can get a package that will include the specifications your site actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at 99Web, offer an immense collection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-price account and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich package takes just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software applications. Specific web sites, mainly web stores, require applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software that does not request root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that need full server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it acts in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions normally give complete root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting packages involve different specifications depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS web hosting server account includes guaranteed web storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for brief stretches of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual web hosting server is easier to cope with as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, certain hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Selecting...

Selecting the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a site. Prior to settling on a plan, weigh the pros and cons, explore completely all the preconditions for the web site to function properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
