| =================================================== Most
webmasters on the net today are familiar with what the industry
calls "shared" web hosting accounts. A shared hosting account is
where you rent a small amount of space on a server which is
shared among many other users.
This is a cheap way to get started online but it has many
disadvantages - you will encounter email delivery problems
because of spam complaints against other sites on the same
server. You will find your site's grinding to a halt when
someone else does some heavy database work on your server. You
might even find your site going down because of a denial of
service attack against someone else hosting hacking or piracy
related material on your server (these type of sites attract
How can you avoid all of this drama?
By upgrading to a virtual dedicated server. A virtual dedicated
server lets you run your sites as if you had your own
"dedicated" server, except it is cheaper because you are really
just using part of a server that has been split into multiple
virtual dedicated servers.
You can find out more about this by searching Google for
"virtual dedicated hosting". Virtuozzo is the main commercial
software that web hosts use to run virtual hosting services.
You will find virtual dedicated server accounts starting at just
$30 a month. You'll get a much larger chunk of bandwidth
compared to shared hosting, and none of the problems that go
with a shared host. You can also get multiple IP addresses that
are exclusive to your sites.
So what's the catch? Not much. You'll probably spend a bit more
on hosting each month. The main disadvantage of upgrading to
virtual dedicated hosting is that you will need to be more
technically proficient so that you can administer the server.
This requires a bit of time learning the necessary Linux skills
to make sure your server runs smoothly.
Many hosting providers will have a "premium" support offering
that includes a bit more hand holding - this is definitely
recommended if you don't have much experience with Linux, or are
new to virtual dedicated hosting.
With the increased speed and bandwidth that a virtual dedicated
host offers, and none of the shared hosting headaches, the move
is one you will never regret. So, the question now becomes, are
to ready and willing to take-on the challenge of virtual
dedicated web hosting and save yourself some hard earned cash?
The choice is yours..
