Top Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting packages suitable for different web sites in relation to the resources or the shared hosting environment they require. To pick the most optimal shared hosting service for your web portal, you need to judge what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may need to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Positive Points
The most adequate option for small sized websites with several hundred or a few thousand visitors is a shared hosting account. With this form of website hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall price per customer substantially. There are diverse web hosting solutions varying from one web hosting vendor to another, furnishing different amounts of data space and monthly bandwidth, different e-mail address account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can purchase a package that will offer the features your site in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small package that cannot host the site. We, at 101Hosting.com, offer a wide variety of shared hosting packages appropriate for private or small business portals that even include pre-activated script-powered systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-end plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Weaknesses
A weakness of the shared web hosting solution is that the web servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Some online portals, especially online storefronts, need software applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to work, and with a shared website hosting platform, you can install only software platforms that do not require full server root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that request root-level access, or if your website has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in an absolutely identical manner.
Virtual Private Servers
Both services usually include root access and can be restarted via a software interface by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Similar to the shared hosting plans, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages contain different features depending on what the web hosting vendor offers. A virtual server hosting plan includes guaranteed hard disk space, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for brief intervals of time in case there are free system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A VPS is simpler to manage as it comes with a virtualization tool, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained users.
Nonetheless, given hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web hosting services where they implement dedicated server management assignments instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
Prior To Reaching a Decision...
Selecting the top hosting package is essential as it can influence the proper work of a site.
