Top Shared Hosting

There are different kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different web portals in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be satisfied.

Shared web hosting - Virtues

The most relevant option for small size online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per individual seriously. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one web hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of server space and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the specs your web portal really demands. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not utilize, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at , offer a wide assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web portals that even provide pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you commence with a low-end plan and you demand more features, moving to a high-end account requires just a mouse click.

Shared Web Hosting - Negative Aspects

A negative side of the shared hosting environment is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Given online portals, chiefly web stores, need software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared website hosting plan, you can activate only software that does not demand root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that need complete root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in an exactly identical way.

VPS Servers

Both services commonly give root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web server plans sport different functionalities depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server hosting account has guaranteed server storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief intervals of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be configured by changing or adding components. A VPS web hosting server is simpler to handle as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be utilized by practiced users.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

Yet, certain web hosting corporations provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they perform server administration tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional service.
