Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting plans suitable for different web sites in terms of the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web page, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Pluses
The most suitable alternative for small sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall price per individual substantially. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting supplier to another, providing different quotas of storage space and bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a plan that will offer the features your site indeed demands. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small size plan that cannot host the online portal. We, at PriceToHost, offer a big choice of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business web portals that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you need more features, moving to a more feature-rich package takes only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Disadvantages
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software programs. Given web portals, mainly web shops, request applications to be present on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting package, you can activate only software that does not require full root-level access.
VPS Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that request full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it performs in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both services typically give root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server plans involve different features based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual hosting server plan contains guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for short intervals of time in case there are unused system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS web hosting server is easier to handle as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be used by competent users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Nonetheless, given hosts offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated hosting server management procedures instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
