Quality Hosting

There are different types of hosting solutions suitable for different web sites when it comes to the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To choose the most appropriate hosting service for your web portal, you need to access what server-side software programs it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be met.

The most appropriate alternative for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per customer critically. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one provider to another, furnishing different amounts of server storage space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will provide the resources your web page actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Global Pro Hosting, offer a large array of hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-price plan and you need more features, upgrading to a more powerful plan takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Certain web portals, above all online shops, require software applications to be installed on the web server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not request full server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For online portals that demand full server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both solutions usually come with root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web server hosting plans sport different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS hosting server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enlarged for brief periods of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to handle as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be utilized by practiced customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

However, certain web hosting companies offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they execute web server administration operations instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.

Before You Choose...

Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can influence the proper performance of a web portal. Before selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, investigate thoroughly all the preconditions for the site to operate properly, especially if it is script-driven.
