Top Web Hosting
There are various types of web hosting solutions suitable for different sites in terms of the resources or the web hosting platform they require. To pick the most optimal web hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Perquisites
The most relevant alternative for small size sites with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which minimizes the total cost per customer substantially. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk space and bandwidth, different e-mail box account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can pay for an account that will include the resources your online portal actually needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the site. We, at Plenty-Hosting, offer a huge choice of web hosting packages appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a low-cost package and you need more features, upgrading to a better package takes only a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Shortcomings
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install new software programs. Some web portals, mainly online shops, demand applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install solely software applications that do not demand complete root access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that need complete server root access, or if your web page has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in strictly the same way.
VPS Web Servers
Both solutions commonly provide root access and can be rebooted via a software program by the customer, autonomously from the hosting provider. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server plans include diverse features depending on what the web hosting company offers. A VPS web hosting server plan has guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be expanded for short periods of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware it is utilizing, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A virtual web hosting server is simpler to manage as it comprises a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such a solution would rather be used by trained customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, certain web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting services where they execute web server management operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an additional feature.
