Quality Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting packages suitable for different sites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be answered.

The most relevant option for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of website hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per customer critically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can get a package that will have the features your online portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the website. We, at ZYNOTEK, offer a vast array of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a cheaper package and you need more features, moving to a more advanced account takes just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software. Given web sites, above all online storefronts, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate solely software that does not request full server root access.

Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand full root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated solution and it acts in precisely the same way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both platforms usually provide root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans involve diverse features depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS web hosting package has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short intervals of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to cope with as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra upgrade.
