Quality Hosting

There are different kinds of hosting accounts suitable for different web portals with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they need. To select the most relevant hosting service for your web portal, you need to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.

The best choice for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per client markedly. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting company to another, offering different quotas of web storage space and bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can order a package that will include the specifications your site in fact demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the site. We, at CableHost, offer a huge collection of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even include pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a basic package and you need more features, moving to a more powerful account requires only a click of the mouse.

Shared Hosting - Minuses

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate new software. Certain online portals, above all web storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software platforms that do not request complete server root access.

Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For sites that demand full root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an absolutely identical way.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both environments usually provide full root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts contain different specifications based on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A Virtual Private Server web hosting account offers guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short stretches of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to tackle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by competent customers.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nevertheless, some web hosting firms provide managed dedicated hosting solutions where they complete dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
