Top Shared Hosting

There are various kinds of shared hosting plans suitable for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the most suitable shared hosting service for your web page, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Dividends

The most relevant choice for small web sites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall cost per customer radically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one hosting firm to another, supplying different amounts of disk storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can buy an account that will provide the specifications your web portal in fact requires. You will not need to pay a lot of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at Hostomedia, offer a great array of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you kick off with a cheaper account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more advanced package demands just a mouse click.

Shared website hosting - Weaknesses

A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate additional software platforms. Specific sites, chiefly web shops, require software applications to be present on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can activate only software applications that do not need complete server root access.

Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For web portals that require complete server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of visitors per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web hosting server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web server and it behaves in a strictly identical way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions commonly include root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Analogous to the shared website hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting plans have different characteristics based on what the hosting company offers. A VPS plan has guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be increased for short spells of time on condition that there are unused resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is easier to handle as it involves virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced users.

Dedicated Web Servers

However, some providers offer managed dedicated hosting services where they run web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an additional option.

Prior To Electing...

Settling on the top hosting package is vital as it can influence the stable operation of a web page. Before picking a plan, compare the pros and cons, appraise thoroughly all the preconditions for the site to work properly, particularly if it is script-based.
