Quality Shared Web Hosting

There are different varieties of shared web hosting packages suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they require. To pick the best shared web hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

The most optimal option for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per user substantially. There are different web hosting solutions varying from one web host to another, delivering different amounts of data storage and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a package that will provide the specifications your site actually requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not use, or end up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at MKE Hosting, offer a big assortment of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a low-end account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a high-end plan requires just a mouse click.

Shared Hosting - Downsides

A negative side of the shared hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install new software. Certain web sites, chiefly web storefronts, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting platform, you can activate only software that does not request root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web pages that need server root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it runs in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms generally offer root privileges and can be restarted through a software interface by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server plans have different functionalities based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS server hosting account includes guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for brief spells of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to administer as it includes virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The management of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by trained users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some web hosting providers provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform web server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
