Top Shared Web Hosting
There are various sorts of shared web hosting plans suitable for different web portals with regard to the system resources or the shared web hosting platform they demand. To choose the most suitable shared web hosting service for your website, you need to estimate what server-side software programs it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Dividends
The most appropriate option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of website hosting, each customer pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per user drastically. There are various web hosting packages differing from one company to another, offering different quotas of web storage space and web traffic, different mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy a plan that will have the specs your web site actually needs. You will not need to pay lots of cash for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot accommodate the online portal. We, at HotDogJoe, offer a large assortment of shared web hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business sites that even come with pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you start with a low-price package and you need more system resources, upgrading to a more powerful plan requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Sides
A shortcoming of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to install additional software. Some online portals, particularly online stores, demand software applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not need root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For websites that require complete server root access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server web hosting. A virtual hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in strictly the same manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both environments generally include root privileges and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated server accounts contain different functionalities based on what the hosting provider offers. A private virtual hosting server package offers guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief stretches of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual private web hosting server is simpler to tackle as it involves a virtualization panel, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be used by proficient customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Yet, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
