Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the best shared hosting service for your site, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be fulfilled.

The most appropriate option for small scale web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per person radically. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk space and bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a package that will have the features your web portal actually demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot shelter the site. We, at DigiPlots, offer a huge variety of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a cheaper account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Specific websites, chiefly online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software that does not need complete root access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that demand full root-level access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in a precisely identical manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both environments traditionally give full server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans contain diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief spells of time on condition that there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to tackle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
