Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting packages suitable for different web pages in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To choose the most adequate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it demands, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be met.
Shared Hosting - Benefits
The most suitable option for small web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per user critically. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one hosting corporation to another, providing different quotas of hard disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can get a plan that will offer the features your online portal in fact requires. You will not need to pay plenty of money for a package you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale account that cannot accommodate the website. We, at HostExcel, offer a big selection of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it easier. If you begin with a cheaper account and you demand more system resources, moving to a more powerful plan requires just a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Minuses
A negative aspect of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot activate new software platforms. Certain online portals, above all web stores, request software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting solution, you can activate solely software programs that do not require full root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers
For web sites that require full server root access, or if your web site has many thousands or even millions of viewers per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in exactly the same way.
Virtual Private Web Servers
Both environments generally come with complete root access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server plans have different specifications depending on what the web hosting provider offers. A VPS package includes guaranteed hard disk space, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for brief stretches of time provided that there are available resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is making use of, and it can be revamped by changing or appending components. A private virtual web hosting server is simpler to manipulate as it offers a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by proficient customers.
Nevertheless, given web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they run dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.
