Top Web Hosting

There are different types of web hosting solutions suitable for different web pages in terms of the system resources or the web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable web hosting service for your online portal, you have to calculate what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.

Shared web hosting - Positive Sides

The most appropriate option for small sized online portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual markedly. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting provider to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk space and monthly traffic, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a plan that will provide the specifications your website in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the web site. We, at , offer an enormous collection of web hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business web portals that even include pre-activated script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a low-end plan and you need more features, upgrading to a better plan requires just a mouse click.

Shared web hosting - Inconveniences

A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Specific web pages, mainly web storefronts, need applications to be activated on the web server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can install only software applications that do not request full server root access.

VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

For web portals that request complete root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated machine and it runs in a strictly identical manner.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

Both services normally offer full root privileges and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Much like the shared hosting accounts, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages have diverse characteristics depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting package includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for short spans of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to administer as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The management of a dedicated web server is more intricate, so such an account would rather be resorted to by practiced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

Nevertheless, certain companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they execute web server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional upgrade.

Prior To Opting...

Opting for the top hosting package is crucial as it can affect the stable functioning of a website. Prior to choosing a package, compare the pros and cons, inspect thoroughly all the preconditions for the website to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
