Quality Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the best shared hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be met.

The most proper alternative for small size online portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per individual radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of server space and web traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a package that will provide the features your web page in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot host the site. We, at Agra Web Hosting, offer a great variety of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you start with a low priced account and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich package involves only a click.

Shared website hosting - Negative Sides

A disadvantage of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software applications. Given web portals, particularly online stores, require software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software programs that do not request complete root access.

Private Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that require root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated server and it works in absolutely the same manner.

Private Virtual Web Servers

Both platforms usually include root privileges and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Similar to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages comprise diverse features based on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS server hosting plan contains guaranteed web space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enlarged for brief stretches of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to run as it involves a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be utilized by experienced customers.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Still, certain providers offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they carry out dedicated hosting server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra upgrade.
