Quality Web Hosting

There are various varieties of web hosting accounts suitable for different sites in relation to the resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most optimal web hosting service for your site, you must calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be covered.

The most appropriate option for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual drastically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage and web traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase an account that will offer the features your web site actually needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at gold Hosting, offer a wide selection of web hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you start with a low grade package and you need more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Aspects

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Given online portals, above all online stores, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate solely software that does not require full root access.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that require full root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in a precisely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both platforms normally give full server root privileges and can be restarted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting accounts involve diverse features based on what the web hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private web server plan includes guaranteed storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual server is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, certain hosts offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform dedicated hosting server management tasks instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Before You Select...

Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web site. Before selecting a plan, compare the pros and cons, examine carefully all the requirements for the website to run properly, especially if it is script-based.
