Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be answered.

The best choice for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per person seriously. There are various web hosting packages differing from one host to another, offering different quotas of disk space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a package that will have the specs your website in fact demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at CIS Hosting, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you begin with a less powerful plan and you require more system resources, moving to a better package takes only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weaknesses

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Certain web pages, mainly web storefronts, demand software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can install only software programs that do not demand server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that need root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily hits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in exactly the same manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services usually provide complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, independently from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting plans have diverse specifications based on what the hosting provider offers. A virtual web server package contains guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for short intervals of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private web server is easier to cope with as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, some hosts provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.
