Quality Hosting

There are different sorts of hosting packages appropriate for different websites in regard to the resources or the hosting platform they need. To pick the best hosting service for your web site, you need to calculate what server-side software programs it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be met.

The most proper choice for small scale websites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total cost per client noticeably. There are various web hosting plans differing from one company to another, delivering different quotas of server space and traffic, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a plan that will have the resources your website really requires. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small account that cannot host the web page. We, at Delva Hosting, offer a vast collection of hosting packages suitable for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low priced package and you need more features, moving to a better account demands only a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Disadvantages

A drawback of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Specific sites, above all online stores, need software applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting account, you can activate solely software programs that do not request full root access.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For sites that need root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in an absolutely identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both solutions usually come with complete root-level access and can be restarted through a software program by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans involve diverse features depending on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS server hosting account has guaranteed web space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to handle as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Nonetheless, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they carry out dedicated hosting server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
