Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting packages appropriate for different sites in relation to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the most optimal shared hosting service for your web page, you need to evaluate what server-side software it requires, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects
The most adequate alternative for small web sites with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of web space hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the total price per customer drastically. There are different web hosting packages differing from one web hosting company to another, supplying different quotas of disk storage and monthly bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can purchase a plan that will have the specs your website actually needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot host the web portal. We, at SrbHost, offer a huge collection of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business web sites that even offer pre-installed script-driven platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you require more functionalities, upgrading to a high-end plan involves just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Negative Signs
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software platforms. Some web pages, chiefly web storefronts, require software applications to be activated on the server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting account, you can install solely software that does not need root-level access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that require full server root access, or if your online portal has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of viewers per day, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A private virtual web server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it behaves in an exactly identical way.
Both services generally offer server root access and can be rebooted via a software tool by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server web hosting plans come with diverse characteristics based on what the web hosting provider offers. A private virtual server hosting account offers guaranteed web storage, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be boosted for short periods of time in case there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or adding components. A Virtual Private Server is simpler to run as it comprises virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated server is more complicated, so such an account would rather be resorted to by trained users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, given web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they implement dedicated web server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be included in the package or an additional option.
