Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To select the most relevant shared hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be covered.
Shared website hosting - Positive Signs
The most adequate option for small size web pages with a few hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total cost per individual drastically. There are various web hosting plans varying from one web hosting corporation to another, offering different amounts of web storage and web traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can obtain a package that will include the features your online portal actually demands. You will not need to pay a lot for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small scale account that cannot shelter the online portal. We, at Enterprise Technology, offer an enormous selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business sites that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you commence with a low grade account and you demand more resources, moving to a more advanced plan involves just a mouse click.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A disadvantage of the shared website hosting solution is that the web servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some web pages, particularly web storefronts, demand applications to be installed on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software that does not require root-level access.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web portals that request server root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of hits per day, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated server and it behaves in precisely the same manner.
Virtual Web Hosting Servers
Both environments normally offer complete server root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Much like the shared web hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans include different specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A VPS hosting plan has guaranteed server storage space, RAM and CPU quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for short spans of time on condition that there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is easier to manipulate as it ships with a virtualization platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy customers.
Yet, given hosting firms provide managed dedicated server web hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an extra option.
