Top Shared Hosting

There are different sorts of shared hosting services suitable for different web pages in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web page, you must judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Positive Points

The most relevant choice for small scale websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per customer radically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one hosting supplier to another, providing different amounts of web space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a package that will have the features your site really demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small scale package that cannot host the web page. We, at , offer a big collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a low priced package and you need more features, upgrading to a more advanced package demands only a mouse click.

Shared Website Hosting - Negative Points

A weakness of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Some online portals, mainly web stores, request software applications to be available on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate solely software applications that do not demand server root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers

For online portals that require root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in an exactly identical way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both platforms normally include complete server root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server accounts come with diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A VPS web hosting plan includes guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short spells of time if there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A virtual server is simpler to administer as it offers a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be resorted to by proficient clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, certain companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run dedicated server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional option.

Prior To Electing...

Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the proper work of a site. Prior to settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, check carefully all the preconditions for the web portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
