Quality Web Hosting

There are various varieties of web hosting solutions appropriate for different web sites in terms of the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To choose the best web hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be covered.

The most appropriate choice for small web sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total price per client noticeably. There are various web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting firm to another, providing different amounts of storage space and bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a plan that will offer the specifications your website actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at STEERWEB, offer a huge selection of web hosting accounts suitable for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low-cost plan and you require more features, upgrading to a high-end account involves just a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Drawbacks

A negative aspect of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Given web portals, above all web shops, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software platforms that do not demand server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that require full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually provide root privileges and can be rebooted via a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting accounts contain diverse features depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server account offers guaranteed server storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be extended for brief intervals of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be utilized by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, certain companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.

Prior To Opting...

Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can affect the proper operation of a web page. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, appraise thoroughly all the requirements for the web site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
