Shared Website Hosting (Website Starter/FlexCloud Sites)
Shared website hosting does not require knowledge or administration of the operating system, and therefore is simpler. User friendly control panels and scripting of installation and administration tasks further simplify the experience for the end user. Control over resource allocation is retained by Hostway, rather than managed by individual users. You have the ability to install some applications; others must be installed or enabled by a Hostway system administrator.
Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting
Virtualization technology gives you web access to a hosted virtual server. Hostway’s VPS uses a system called Parallels Virtuozzo, which uses a single copy of the operating system (Windows or Linux) among all virtual machines on a physical server (host). Our approach results in cost-effective virtualization and efficient allocation of server resources, with the ability to burst additional resources when available.
Cloud hosting is the best option if you want to be able to spin up and down resources within the Microsoft Azure public cloud. Each virtual machine has its own allocated virtual CPU, memory and storage located on the physical host. It also runs its own instance of the desired operating system, which you can configure and administer.
