Quality Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web pages with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web page, you have to calculate what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be met.

The most appropriate option for small size online portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual substantially. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one provider to another, delivering different quotas of data storage space and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a package that will provide the resources your website indeed needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at ENSR.com, offer a large variety of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business websites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you commence with a low-cost plan and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end account involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Aspects
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Certain online portals, mainly online storefronts, need software applications to be available on the web server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software that does not demand root access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that request root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both environments generally provide complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server accounts include different specifications based on what the web hosting company offers. A private virtual server hosting plan contains guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for short intervals of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual web server is simpler to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be used by knowledgeable clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, given providers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run server management procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
