Quality Website Hosting

There are different varieties of website hosting solutions appropriate for different web portals in terms of the system resources or the website hosting environment they demand. To select the most relevant website hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be answered.

The best choice for small web pages with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per client seriously. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one company to another, supplying different amounts of data storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The good point is that you can order a plan that will have the specifications your web site really needs. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot host the web site. We, at Green Data Hosting, offer a big assortment of website hosting plans suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced package takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain sites, particularly web shops, require applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software that does not request root access.

VPSs and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For sites that request full server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated solution and it functions in strictly the same manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both platforms usually include server root access and can be restarted via a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts include different features depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A private virtual web hosting server package includes guaranteed data space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short stretches of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to manage as it comprises a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by competent users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, some hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run server management tasks instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
