Quality Shared Hosting

There are different varieties of shared hosting services suitable for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you need to access what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The most proper option for small scale websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per client significantly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of server storage and bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the features your website really demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at wild-hosting, offer an immense array of shared hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a basic plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a high-end package requires just a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Negative Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Certain websites, mainly web stores, need software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software programs that do not request server root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For portals that require root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it works in strictly the same way.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally come with root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server accounts sport different characteristics depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS web server account includes guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be extended for short spans of time provided that there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual hosting server is easier to tackle as it offers virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement web server administration tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
