Quality Web Hosting

There are various kinds of web hosting accounts appropriate for different sites with regard to the resources or the web hosting platform they require. To choose the most appropriate web hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.

The most proper option for small scale web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per individual drastically. There are diverse web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting vendor to another, supplying different quotas of server storage and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can order an account that will provide the specs your web site in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot host the site. We, at 04 Host, offer a big choice of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low-end package and you need more functionalities, moving to a high-end package takes just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A weakness of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Specific sites, especially online stores, need software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not demand full root-level access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services normally come with full server root access and can be rebooted through a software program by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts come with diverse specifications based on what the hosting company offers. A virtual private web server hosting package includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short stretches of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to handle as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced clients.

Dedicated Web Servers

Yet, some hosting vendors provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they perform web server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.
