Quality Hosting

There are different varieties of hosting packages appropriate for different sites in terms of the system resources or the hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be satisfied.

The most proper alternative for small size web sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their account, which lowers the total price per individual considerably. There are various web hosting plans varying from one host to another, providing different amounts of hard disk space and monthly traffic, different email account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will include the features your website indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the website. We, at My Dragonweb Hosting, offer a wide array of hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you begin with a low grade plan and you need more features, upgrading to a high-end plan demands only a click.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Given web pages, particularly web shops, demand software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not demand server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers

For web portals that need complete root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software emulation of a dedicated machine and it works in exactly the same manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both services traditionally provide server root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting accounts, the VPS and the dedicated hosting accounts have different specs depending on what the hosting company has to offer. A Virtual Private Server plan offers guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for short spans of time provided that there are available system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.

Dedicated Servers

However, some hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they carry out web server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional service.

Prior To Reaching a Decision...

Choosing the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an effect on the stable functioning of a web page. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the preconditions for the web site to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven. And if you are still unsure which one is the best hosting service for you, ask our live chat operators or call us - our sales reps will be glad to assist you and answer all your questions.
