Quality Shared Hosting

There are different types of shared hosting packages suitable for different web sites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web site, you have to access what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be met.

The most adequate option for small size websites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per person critically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting corporation to another, supplying different quotas of data space and monthly traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can obtain an account that will provide the features your site actually demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at LCS IT and Media Services Hosting, offer a great collection of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-end account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich account takes just a click.

Shared Hosting - Downsides

A shortcoming of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate new software applications. Given web portals, especially web storefronts, request software applications to be available on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software that does not request complete root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers

For portals that request server root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it acts in an exactly identical manner.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions traditionally provide server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting plans include diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual private web hosting server account includes guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short stretches of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to manage as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, given providers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out dedicated web hosting server administration assignments on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
