Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different websites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web site, you have to evaluate what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be satisfied.

The most optimal choice for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per person considerably. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of server storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will provide the specs your web page really demands. You will not have to pay a lot of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at IEM SMART SOLUTION HOSTING, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you start with a low-end package and you demand more features, upgrading to a high-end account requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A negative side of the shared web hosting platform is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Specific web portals, chiefly web storefronts, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not require full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that require full server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in exactly the same way.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally include full server root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server hosting packages sport diverse specifications based on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web server hosting plan contains guaranteed data storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting firms provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they carry out server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
