As the IT sector proliferates incessantly, brand new cheap hosting solutions are introduced to render website creation and management easier than ever. A shared web hosting account with the smallest server storage space and monthly bandwidth quotas used to cost tens of US dollars per month, but now, some firms offer unmetered packages for only a fraction of the cost, permitting individuals and small-size corporations to assume their place in the Internet world.
The invention of more robust configurations and the allocation of different tasks between several web servers permit companies to provide qualitative, yet cheap hosting services. With a shared web hosting package, each client gets an account on a web hosting server and because a bunch of other persons share the very same hosting server, the price of the account is quite cheap. Depending on the particular vendor, there may be hard disk space, traffic or CPU load limitations, but due to the huge competition on the marketplace and the abovementioned allocation of tasks, most leading companies offer unlimited feature plans. The most typical limitation is associated with the CPU load, and such a usage quota is a way for the firm to guarantee that all accounts on the hosting server will have enough system resources and that if a given account loads the server, it will not affect the other ones, causing all the web sites on the server to become unavailable. A shared hosting account can be used for any small or medium-sized web page - from a personal online diary, to a forum or a small-sized web store.
For more famous web pages that get 1000's of visits each day, there is also a discounted, innovative solution - a VPS web hosting. With this type of cheap hosting, there are just a couple of accounts on a physical server, which still retains the price rather low in comparison with a dedicated server web hosting. Each virtual private web hosting server has guaranteed resources that are much more than those of a shared hosting package, which makes it feasible for people to build big online shops, e-learning websites with hundreds or 1000's of users, and sizable company pages. Like the shared web hosting packages, the virtual server hosting packages have one or more features with a pre-defined allowance, which guarantees the uninterrupted performance of the other accounts on the server. The advantage of the VPS is that the client has full root privileges, i.e. services can be activated and ended, any software platform can be activated, and the server can be rebooted via a virtualization tool, also famous as a container. Since some script-driven sites require additional server-side software to be installed, being given complete root access is an important point for these web pages to operate unproblematically.
The website content is managed via a web hosting Control Panel just like any shared website hosting account. The web hosting Control Panel types vary on the basis of the web hosting distributor, but the most widely used ones are Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk and H-Sphere, and they all give you the fundamental functionalities to maintain your web pages, to create and administer files, databases and emails, create password protected areas, install scripts through a script-installer tool, and keep track of web traffic statistics for your domain names. Unfortunately, only Hepsia offers domain registrations, transfers, renewals and numerous domain name management possibilities, via a very user-friendly section dubbed Domain Manager.
