Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the best shared hosting service for your website, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.

The most adequate choice for small scale websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which lowers the total cost per person noticeably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one company to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will have the features your online portal in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small plan that cannot host the web site. We, at 121Direct, offer an enormous selection of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you require more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan demands only a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Drawbacks

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Certain websites, particularly online storefronts, request applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software applications that do not demand server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that require full root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in absolutely the same way.

VPS Web Servers

Both environments generally include full server root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans involve different functionalities based on what the hosting company offers. A Virtual Private Server hosting package has guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for short periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to manipulate as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by proficient users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform web server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Selecting...

Choosing the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the stable operation of a site. Prior to picking a plan, weigh the pros and cons, explore thoroughly all the requirements for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-powered.
