The most optimal option for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total price per customer drastically. There are diverse web hosting packages differing from one hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of server storage and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get an account that will include the resources your web page in fact demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Murray Host, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business web portals that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-end account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more powerful package takes just a click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Given web pages, chiefly web shops, require software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software programs that do not request server root access.

VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For websites that demand server root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS web server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.

VPS Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions normally include full server root privileges and can be rebooted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server plans include diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS package includes guaranteed data space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spans of time in case there are spare resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A virtual server is easier to manipulate as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Yet, given hosting firms offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
