Quality Website Hosting

There are various types of website hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals with regard to the resources or the website hosting platform they demand. To pick the most suitable website hosting service for your website, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.

The most adequate option for small web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of website hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per person seriously. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specs your web site indeed needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot host the site. We, at iNet Africa, offer a great array of website hosting solutions suitable for private or small business websites that even include pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low priced plan and you require more system resources, upgrading to a high-end package involves only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Some web pages, especially online storefronts, demand applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not need root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that need full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it functions in a strictly identical manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both solutions typically give root access and can be restarted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve diverse functionalities based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web server hosting account contains guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be increased for short intervals of time if there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to cope with as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by qualified users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, given hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they perform hosting server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.

Prior To Choosing...

Settling on the top hosting package is important as it can influence the stable work of a online portal.
