Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different types of shared web hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in relation to the resources or the shared web hosting platform they need. To pick the most proper shared web hosting service for your web portal, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The best choice for small online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per individual critically. There are different web hosting packages varying from one hosting company to another, offering different amounts of data storage and web traffic, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will offer the resources your web portal actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web site. We, at GNet Hosting, offer a vast assortment of shared web hosting solutions suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-cost account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Minuses

A downside of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Certain web sites, especially online storefronts, require applications to be present on the web server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand complete root-level access.

VPSs and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For sites that need server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in a precisely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both environments typically offer full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server packages contain diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web hosting server plan includes guaranteed storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be boosted for brief intervals of time on condition that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual web server is easier to tackle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.

Dedicated Servers

However, some hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.

Before You Choose...

Settling on the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable work of a website.
