Quality Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to reckon what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

The most proper choice for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the overall price per person markedly. There are various web hosting packages differing from one web hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of hard disk space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can pay for an account that will offer the resources your website really requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small size package that cannot host the web site. We, at Xgen Hosting, offer a wide choice of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a better plan involves just a click.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Aspects

A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Some online portals, mainly online storefronts, demand applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting plan, you can activate solely software that does not require complete server root access.

VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that demand root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A VPS web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it functions in strictly the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both environments typically include complete server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts contain diverse features depending on what the web hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web hosting account offers guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief spells of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to administer as it includes a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by qualified clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional service.
