Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different web portals in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To select the most adequate shared hosting service for your site, you must judge what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may have to be covered.
Shared web hosting - Virtues
The most relevant choice for small scale web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of web site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which minimizes the overall cost per person critically. There are different web hosting plans differing from one hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of hard disk space and monthly traffic, different email quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the features your online portal really requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot shelter the site. We, at PC Helper, offer a large array of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web portals that even offer pre-activated script-driven systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you start with a low grade package and you demand more functionalities, moving to a more powerful account requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Inconveniences
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 install new software. Specific websites, above all online stores, need applications to be present on the hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can install solely software applications that do not request server root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that need complete server root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily visits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual private hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in precisely the same manner.
VPS Web Hosting Servers
Both services normally provide root access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting server accounts come with diverse features based on what the web hosting vendor offers. A Virtual Private Server account has guaranteed hard disk storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can occasionally be enhanced for brief spells of time in case there are available system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A private virtual server is easier to handle as it ships with a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by skilled clients.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, given hosting providers offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra feature.
