Unlimited websites hosted
There are different types of hosting solutions appropriate for different sites with regard to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To pick the most adequate hosting service for your web site, you must access what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Strong Points
The best alternative for small sized sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of web space hosting, each client pays only for their account, which reduces the total cost per customer substantially. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get an account that will provide the specs your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size plan that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Black Cotton Works - Website Solutions, offer a wide variety of hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even provide pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you kick off with a low grade plan and you need more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan involves just a click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Points
A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain online portals, especially web stores, demand applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install solely software programs that do not need complete server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that request root-level access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it runs in absolutely the same way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms usually include full root-level access and can be restarted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated server accounts contain diverse specifications based on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual web server hosting plan contains guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to run as it offers a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by practiced customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they complete web server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
Prior To Electing...
