Best Shared Web Hosting

There are various kinds of shared web hosting packages suitable for different sites when it comes to the resources or the shared web hosting environment they need. To pick the most suitable shared web hosting service for your web site, you need to judge what server-side software programs it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Advantages

The most appropriate alternative for small scale web portals with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which minimizes the total price per user noticeably. There are various web hosting solutions differing from one hosting provider to another, furnishing different amounts of hard disk space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can obtain a plan that will have the specs your website actually requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot host the web page. We, at , offer a big choice of shared web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even provide pre-activated script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a low-end plan and you need more features, upgrading to a high-end plan requires only a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Shortcomings

A weak side of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software platforms. Given web portals, particularly web shops, need software applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not request full root-level access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web pages that demand complete server root access, or if your site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A VPS web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in strictly the same manner.

Virtual Private Hosting Servers

Both services typically come with root privileges and can be rebooted via a software tool by the user, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server hosting packages sport different specs depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual private hosting server package contains guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short periods of time on condition that there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS is easier to manage as it comes with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a plan would rather be utilized by experienced clients.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

However, some companies offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they perform web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.

Before You Opt...

Settling on the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the proper performance of a web page. Prior to selecting a package, compare the pros and cons, review completely all the preconditions for the web page to operate properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
