Quality Hosting

There are various sorts of hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the hosting platform they demand. To select the most appropriate hosting service for your online portal, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

The most suitable option for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per person significantly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one web hosting firm to another, furnishing different amounts of storage space and traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for a plan that will provide the specs your online portal actually requires. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Social Stream ME, offer a huge variety of hosting packages suitable for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-cost account and you demand more features, moving to a more feature-rich account demands just a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Some online portals, particularly web storefronts, demand applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not need full root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For websites that request complete root-level access, or if your portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions traditionally provide root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated hosting server packages involve diverse specifications based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting account has guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spans of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to handle as it comprises a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
