Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you must access what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be fulfilled.

The best choice for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall price per customer significantly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting firm to another, offering different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy an account that will provide the specs your online portal indeed requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the website. We, at North Vancouver Web Hosting, offer a big assortment of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low priced plan and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced package demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Specific web pages, particularly web shops, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software platforms that do not demand root-level access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that need full root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Servers

Both platforms usually offer root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages contain diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server hosting package includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short stretches of time in case there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS web server is simpler to handle as it includes a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given web hosting companies provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they complete dedicated web server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra option.
