Quality Web Hosting

There are different varieties of web hosting plans suitable for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the web hosting platform they require. To pick the best web hosting service for your web page, you must judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.

The most adequate choice for small sized web pages with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per user considerably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one web host to another, providing different quotas of disk storage and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase an account that will provide the specs your web portal actually demands. You will not have to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Hermes Host, offer a vast selection of web hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a basic package and you require more system resources, moving to a more powerful package involves just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Minuses

A disadvantage of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Specific sites, above all online shops, require applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not require complete root-level access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same way.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms traditionally include full root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages come with different specifications depending on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual web server plan includes guaranteed web storage space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short stretches of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is simpler to cope with as it offers virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be used by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nonetheless, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete hosting server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
