Quality Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your site, you have to calculate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be covered.

The best option for small size web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per customer considerably. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one company to another, offering different quotas of disk space and traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy an account that will include the specifications your web portal actually requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the website. We, at Platinum Web Services, offer a large collection of web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a less powerful account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Weak Points

A drawback of the shared hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Given web pages, mainly web shops, demand applications to be present on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not demand full root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that require full root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in a strictly identical manner.

VPS Hosting Servers

Both environments normally include root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting plans come with different features depending on what the hosting company offers. A VPS server web hosting package includes guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spells of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to run as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by practiced customers.

Dedicated Servers

Still, certain web hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they complete dedicated hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.

Prior To Electing...

Picking the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the proper performance of a site. Prior to choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, check thoroughly all the preconditions for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
