Quality Web Hosting

There are different kinds of web hosting packages appropriate for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the web hosting environment they require. To select the most adequate web hosting service for your web page, you must calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.

The most suitable choice for small scale sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per customer seriously. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, furnishing different quotas of server storage and bandwidth, different e-mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can purchase a package that will have the specifications your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at American Patriot Hosting, offer an immense variety of web hosting plans suitable for personal or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low grade package and you demand more features, upgrading to a more powerful account involves only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Weak Sides

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Specific web sites, above all web shops, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software platforms that do not require complete server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that demand full server root access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of visitors per day, what you demand is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated server and it performs in a strictly identical manner.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers

Both services generally provide complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting supplier. Analogous to the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated hosting plans come with diverse features depending on what the hosting vendor offers. A VPS web hosting server plan has guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spells of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS hosting server is easier to manage as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by qualified clients.

Dedicated Servers

Nonetheless, some hosts provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration assignments instead of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra upgrade.

Before You Choose...

Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper work of a web portal.
