Quality Web Hosting

There are various varieties of web hosting plans appropriate for different websites when it comes to the resources or the web hosting platform they need. To select the most proper web hosting service for your web site, you need to access what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most optimal choice for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per person considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one company to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy a plan that will include the specifications your web site actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Applied Technologies, offer a great selection of web hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-cost account and you require more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan takes only a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Drawbacks

A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Certain websites, mainly web storefronts, request software applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install solely software applications that do not require root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that request complete server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Web Servers

Both environments traditionally provide complete root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting company. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting packages involve different characteristics depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual server account contains guaranteed hard disk storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be expanded for brief periods of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to tackle as it includes virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, given hosting providers provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
