Top Shared Hosting

There are various sorts of shared hosting services suitable for different websites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.

Shared Hosting - Strong Points

The best option for small web pages with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this form of web hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per customer radically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting supplier to another, furnishing different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the features your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at , offer a great choice of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business sites that even provide pre-installed script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low priced package and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced plan demands only a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Disadvantages

A weak side of the shared web hosting platform is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Given web portals, particularly online shops, need applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software programs that do not request full root access.

Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that require full root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of viewers per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it works in an absolutely identical manner.

Virtual Private Web Servers

Both services normally come with root access and can be rebooted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Just like the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting server packages come with different functionalities based on what the hosting vendor offers. A virtual private web server account includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for short stretches of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to run as it arrives with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be used by skilled users.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Still, some companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute dedicated web hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra option.
