Quality Hosting

There are different types of hosting accounts appropriate for different web portals in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal hosting service for your website, you need to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.

The most optimal option for small sized web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which reduces the total price per customer significantly. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a package that will offer the features your web page actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Greenolive Hosting Solutions, offer a large collection of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a low-price account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves only a click.

Shared Website Hosting - Shortcomings

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software applications. Given online portals, mainly online shops, request applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software that does not request full root-level access.

Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web sites that require complete server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated package. A VPS hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it performs in absolutely the same way.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services normally provide server root access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server accounts have different features based on what the web hosting provider offers. A Virtual Private Server plan includes guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be enhanced for short stretches of time provided that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to manage as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, certain hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute web server administration operations instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can have an effect on the proper operation of a website. Before selecting an account, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the prerequisites for the website to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
