Quality Hosting

There are different sorts of hosting solutions suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your site, you must reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most appropriate option for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer radically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one hosting vendor to another, delivering different quotas of server space and monthly traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a package that will include the specs your web portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at EXTEC, offer an enormous selection of hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low-price package and you demand more resources, moving to a better package demands only a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Downsides

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Some web pages, especially online stores, demand applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not request full root access.

Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that demand full server root access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it functions in an exactly identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both solutions generally come with complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting accounts sport different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server hosting account includes guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief stretches of time if there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to administer as it arrives with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by proficient clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
