Top Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your web page, you need to reckon what server-side software applications it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Good Points
The most adequate option for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per person radically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one hosting vendor to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will offer the features your web page really needs. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at Hostnet GH. Ltd, offer a big choice of shared hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business websites that even offer pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low grade account and you require more functionalities, moving to a more advanced account involves just a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Negative Points
A negative aspect of the shared hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to install new software platforms. Given online portals, mainly web stores, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate solely software platforms that do not require complete root-level access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that request complete root-level access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it operates in an absolutely identical manner.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both services usually offer root-level access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, independently from the web hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts come with different features depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web server hosting plan has guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short periods of time on condition that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to cope with as it arrives with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be used by knowledgeable customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain providers provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they perform dedicated web server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra service.
Before You Reach a Decision...
