Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to judge what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.

The best option for small sized web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their account, which decreases the overall cost per client radically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, furnishing different quotas of data storage space and traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order a package that will provide the specifications your web portal actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the site. We, at MagicHost, offer a great choice of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Minuses

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

Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For portals that request full root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in strictly the same manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms commonly give full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans contain diverse specifications depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A private virtual server account has guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be extended for short spells of time in case there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be used by proficient users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they implement web server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional service.
