Quality Web Hosting

There are different sorts of web hosting packages suitable for different web pages in relation to the system resources or the web hosting environment they need. To pick the most suitable web hosting service for your web portal, you have to reckon what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be satisfied.

The most suitable alternative for small web pages with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per user considerably. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage and traffic, different email quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a plan that will provide the specifications your website really demands. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size package that cannot shelter the web page. We, at Tierra Hosting, offer an enormous array of web hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-price package and you need more system resources, moving to a high-end account takes just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Negative Signs

A weak side of the shared hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software programs. Specific web pages, chiefly online shops, request applications to be installed on the server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install only software applications that do not require complete root-level access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For portals that need root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in strictly the same manner.

Private Virtual Servers

Both services commonly offer full root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server packages include different features based on what the web hosting supplier offers. A VPS server hosting package includes guaranteed hard disk storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to cope with as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such a package would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, given web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated hosting server administration assignments instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
