Top Shared Web Hosting
There are various kinds of shared web hosting plans suitable for different web sites in regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they require. To select the most suitable shared web hosting service for your website, you must reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Sides
The most relevant choice for small size sites with a few hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this form of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the overall cost per individual radically. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of disk space and bandwidth, different email box account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can obtain an account that will provide the features your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small account that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at Website Handyman, offer a wide collection of shared web hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low-end plan and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more advanced package requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Signs
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting platform is that the web servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Some websites, above all online stores, request applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install solely software platforms that do not require complete root-level access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For sites that demand complete root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated solution and it works in an exactly identical way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions usually give full root privileges and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting company. Much like the shared web hosting packages, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server web hosting accounts comprise different specs depending on what the web hosting supplier offers. A private virtual web hosting server account contains guaranteed disk storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or appending components. A VPS hosting server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting solutions where they run dedicated hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional option.
Prior To Deciding...
Choosing the top hosting package is crucial as it can have an effect on the stable work of a web portal. Prior to opting for an account, weigh the pros and cons, explore carefully all the prerequisites for the web site to perform properly, especially if it is script-based.
