Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web sites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To choose the best shared hosting service for your website, you must estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special demands that may have to be covered.
Shared Web Hosting - Strong Sides
The most appropriate option for small sized web portals with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the total price per user substantially. There are diverse web hosting packages varying from one hosting company to another, providing different quotas of hard disk space and traffic, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy an account that will provide the specifications your online portal in fact needs. You will not have to pay lots of money for an account you will not utilize, or wind up with a small scale package that cannot host the online portal. We, at phity Hosting, offer a big choice of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even offer pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a low priced package and you need more resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weak Sides
A shortcoming of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Some websites, particularly web shops, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can activate only software programs that do not require complete server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For portals that demand full root-level access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web server and it performs in a precisely identical manner.
Both solutions typically give complete root-level access and can be rebooted via a software program by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages include diverse functionalities based on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A virtual private web server hosting account includes guaranteed data storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be extended for short periods of time if there are free resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A VPS server is easier to manage as it ships with a virtualization tool, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be used by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, given hosting corporations offer managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they run web server management tasks instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional upgrade.
