Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting plans suitable for different websites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your website, you have to judge what server-side software it demands, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be met.
Shared web hosting - Positive Sides
The most relevant alternative for small scale online portals with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per user seriously. There are different web hosting packages differing from one company to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage space and monthly bandwidth, different mail address account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can get a plan that will provide the specifications your web page indeed requires. You will not need to pay lots of cash for a package you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot host the website. We, at WnD Solutions, offer a big array of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even provide pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you begin with a cheaper plan and you require more resources, moving to a high-end account takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A weakness of the shared web hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Specific web sites, mainly web storefronts, require applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not require complete root-level access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that demand root access, or if your online portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated server and it runs in a strictly identical way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both solutions traditionally provide root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Analogous to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages comprise different features depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual hosting server account offers guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can at times be expanded for brief stretches of time provided that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to administer as it involves a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by skilled customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosts offer managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they run hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra service.
Prior To Choosing...
Picking the top hosting plan is crucial as it can have an influence on the proper operation of a web page. Prior to opting for a plan, compare the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the requirements for the online portal to run properly, especially if it is script-powered.
