Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different websites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your web page, you need to calculate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared Website Hosting - Good Points
The most proper choice for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per individual substantially. There are various web hosting packages varying from one hosting corporation to another, providing different amounts of server space and web traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will provide the features your site really needs. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not use, or wind up with a small sized package that cannot accommodate the website. We, at Pro104 Hosting, offer a large variety of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even offer pre-activated script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you kick off with a less powerful package and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced account demands only a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Aspects
A weakness of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate new software. Specific web pages, above all web stores, demand applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software programs that do not request complete server root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that need complete server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it runs in a strictly identical way.
VPS Web Servers
Both environments generally come with complete server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated hosting server plans involve diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A private virtual web hosting server package offers guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for brief stretches of time if there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limit is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it comprises virtualization software, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by qualified customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
However, certain hosting providers offer managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they implement server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Before You Decide...
Picking the top hosting package is crucial as it can influence the proper work of a web portal.
