Quality Shared Hosting

There are various types of shared hosting accounts appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your website, you need to reckon what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The most appropriate alternative for small sized web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user considerably. There are diverse web hosting plans varying from one web hosting company to another, offering different amounts of web storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a plan that will have the specifications your web site indeed requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small account that cannot host the site. We, at Genius Monster Hosting, offer a large choice of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a basic package and you require more features, upgrading to a better plan demands just a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Inconveniences

A drawback of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Specific websites, particularly web shops, request software applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software that does not need complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web sites that require full root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services commonly come with server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans come with diverse specifications depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A VPS web server hosting package offers guaranteed disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spells of time if there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to tackle as it involves virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be utilized by skilled customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, given companies offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
