Top Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting services suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your website, you need to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared web hosting - Positive Sides
The best alternative for small scale web sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of web site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per customer considerably. There are diverse web hosting solutions differing from one host to another, providing different quotas of server storage space and bandwidth, different email account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will include the resources your website actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not use, or end up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web site. We, at Hosting Weblogger, offer a large selection of shared hosting solutions suitable for private or small business portals that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you begin with a low-end package and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich package demands just a click.
Shared website hosting - Drawbacks
A negative aspect of the shared hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you cannot activate new software programs. Given web pages, especially online storefronts, need applications to be activated on the hosting server for them to work, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate solely software applications that do not require full server root access.
Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For sites that need root-level access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily viewers, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it operates in precisely the same way.
Virtual Web Servers
Both platforms traditionally come with root-level access and can be rebooted through a software program by the customer, independently from the web hosting supplier. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting accounts sport different characteristics based on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS web hosting server account includes guaranteed data storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief stretches of time in case there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is using, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is easier to manage as it includes virtualization software, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by experienced clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given companies offer managed dedicated web hosting services where they execute dedicated server management operations instead of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra service.
