Top Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different websites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your online portal, you must evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Benefits
The most optimal choice for small sized web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this type of site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per person radically. There are various web hosting packages varying from one host to another, furnishing different amounts of disk space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase an account that will provide the specs your online portal really needs. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web page. We, at Hosting Tech, offer an enormous collection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a low grade plan and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more advanced package requires only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Inconveniences
A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Specific sites, particularly online storefronts, demand software applications to be available on the server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software platforms that do not demand root-level access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that demand full root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it performs in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers
Both solutions normally provide root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting plans involve diverse functionalities based on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private web hosting server plan offers guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS is simpler to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting companies provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement web server administration procedures instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra feature.
