Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different websites in terms of the system resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your web site, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many daily hits you anticipate at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Dividends
The best alternative for small size websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per person considerably. There are various web hosting packages varying from one web hosting company to another, providing different quotas of web storage and monthly traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can purchase a plan that will include the specs your website in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web site. We, at Mad Host, offer an extensive assortment of shared hosting plans suitable for personal or small business web pages that even come with pre-activated script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you commence with a low grade plan and you demand more system resources, moving to a more advanced plan involves just a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Shortcomings
A downside of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install additional software. Some web pages, above all web shops, need applications to be present on the hosting server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate solely software applications that do not need complete server root access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For sites that request full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated solution and it acts in strictly the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both solutions generally offer full root access and can be restarted via a software program by the user, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting accounts comprise different features depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A virtual private web hosting server account includes guaranteed data space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short periods of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to tackle as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install software applications, check stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more intricate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by practiced users.
However, certain web hosting companies provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated hosting server administration operations on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
Prior To Electing...
Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web portal. Prior to settling on a package, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the prerequisites for the site to function properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
