Top Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the best shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to judge what server-side software programs it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Strong Sides
The most proper option for small sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which minimizes the overall price per individual substantially. There are various web hosting plans varying from one hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of web space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The positive point is that you can buy a package that will offer the resources your site really needs. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small plan that cannot accommodate the site. We, at VIP Website Hosting, offer a vast selection of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web portals that even come with pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a less powerful package and you need more system resources, moving to a more powerful plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A shortcoming of the shared hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software platforms. Given web sites, particularly web storefronts, require software applications to be present on the server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install only software applications that do not request root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For websites that request server root access, or if your site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it works in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both platforms generally give full root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, autonomously from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans comprise diverse functionalities depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server hosting account includes guaranteed server space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be boosted for short intervals of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to run as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be utilized by knowledgeable users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, given hosting vendors provide managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
