Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To select the most proper shared hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The most relevant alternative for small sized web sites with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per client markedly. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one web hosting firm to another, supplying different quotas of data storage and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will have the features your web site indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not use, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Steele Design Studio limited, offer an enormous array of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared web hosting - Disadvantages

A shortcoming of the shared hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Given web pages, above all web shops, demand software applications to be installed on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate solely software platforms that do not demand root-level access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that need complete root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers

Both solutions normally come with complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans have different specifications depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server account has guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief stretches of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization panel, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by knowledgeable customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, certain companies offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they run web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
