High Capacity Web Hosting

If you have a website that gets a great number of daily visitors and has many specific technical configurations, you may be wondering if you need high capacity web hosting instead of a regular shared web hosting plan.  You might be thinking that a high capacity plan could provide you with a faster connection for your customers and more disk space.  Perhaps you are questioning if choosing this type of web host would be the best idea for your website.

The best way to know if you need a high capacity hosting plan is to consider the bandwidth of your current plan and how well your website functions at that bandwidth.  Not sure what bandwidth is?  An easy way to understand bandwidth is to think of it as a pipe.  Information from your website flows through that pipe to customers.  Your pipe needs to be wide enough to allow the right number of customers to easily come and go from your website.  If you have more customers than your pipe can handle, the pipe will get backed up and customers will not be able to load up your site very well or very quickly.  If this is an issue for you (or you anticipate it to be an issue soon), you need more pipes.  In other words, you need more bandwidth–and a higher capacity web host.

First of all, there are many types of web hosting packages that are available through various web host providers that are labeled as high capacity.  So, each web host has a different concept of what high capacity hosting actually is.  For many providers, all it takes to turn a regular hosting plan into a high capacity plan is to increase the storage space to anywhere from 500 MB to 2 GB and to increase the bandwidth up to 10 GB to 50 GB per month.  They may add more FTP accounts and SQL databases.  It is also common for these web hosts to increase the number of email lists, subdomains, parked domains, and more in their high capacity packages.

Other websites have a different concept of what high capacity hosting should be.  These sites believe that regular shared hosting may not be suitable for larger and busier websites.  But, instead of insisting upon a dedicated server situation (which can be very costly and difficult to manage), these web hosts offer a a special high capacity hosting in which certain servers are used by less than twenty accounts.  The host also increases the disk space and bandwidth for each account.  This type of package does cost more than regular shared hosting packages; however, it allows webmasters to have the easy management of a shared server with the extra resources of a high capacity package.

You can, of course, choose to go with the ultimate type of high capacity web host plan–a dedicated server.  But, these plans are best only for the largest and busiest websites because they are quite expensive and because they require a good deal of technical knowledge.

Choosing Cheap Reseller Web Hosting

If you are building a new website or looking for a new web host for a website you have already built, you have probably been doing some searching for an inexpensive, reliable hosting package.  Chances are, you have done a few internet searches and visited one or two of the hosting provider comparison websites.  But, have you considered selecting a cheap reseller web hosting package?

Some people are leery of using reseller web hosts.  This is often because many resellers often disguise the fact that they are resellers (due to some people’s reluctance to use resellers).  It may also be because some people are not comfortable with the idea of purchasing web hosting from an individual person who is simply selling his extra disk space and bandwidth.

There is actually no legitimate reason to be distrustful and skeptical of reseller web hosts.  Reseller web hosting involves purchasing disk space or servers and then dividing that into smaller sections (or accounts) to sell as hosting packages.  This is what even the large hosting companies do, isn’t it?  Big companies with thousands of servers are doing the exact same thing as smaller reseller web hosts that may have only one server or a certain amount of disk space to sell.  So, perhaps it isn’t fair to feel doubtful and wary of the small reseller just because his business is small.

Choosing cheap reseller web hosting for your website may, in fact, be a very wise move.  Some of the large website hosting companies have grown so large that they have become quite impersonal.  It may be difficult to get assistance from these companies if it is needed.  This can affect the success of your website if, for example, you are unable to resolve an issue with your shopping cart and customers are unable to check out with their purchases.

On the other hand, resellers typically have fewer clients than the web hosting company whose services they resell; therefore, they are usually able to provide a superior level of support to clients.  This often personalized level of support may not be evident until you need it, but you will certainly appreciate it when it becomes necessary.

Another benefit of choosing a reseller web host is the money it can save you.  While many larger web hosts do offer specials from time to time, resellers can almost always beat those prices.  And, the lower prices charged by resellers are their regular, everyday prices–not discounts that will only last for your first three or six months of hosting.  Also, because resellers receive a large discount from the hosting company whose services they resell, they are often able to provide clients with more services than their hosting company could provide…and at a lower price!

When selecting a reseller web hosting package, it is best to do some research.  Look at customer reviews of the reseller and don’t be afraid to ask questions.  This will allow you to choose the best reseller host for you.
