Quality Hosting

There are different types of hosting plans suitable for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your online portal, you must calculate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.

The most adequate option for small scale sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web space hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per person considerably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of hard disk space and web traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order an account that will offer the features your online portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at City Website Services, offer a vast assortment of hosting packages suitable for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced package requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given web sites, particularly web storefronts, need software applications to be present on the web server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not require full root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that require full root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it operates in a precisely identical manner.

VPS Web Servers

Both solutions traditionally give full root-level access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans come with diverse specifications based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A VPS hosting plan includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for brief spells of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to tackle 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 web server is more complex, so such a package would rather be used by practiced customers.

Dedicated Servers

Yet, given web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run hosting server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.

Prior To Electing...

Opting for the top hosting plan is crucial as it can affect the proper work of a site. Before choosing an account, weigh the pros and cons, check completely all the requirements for the web page to work properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
