Top Shared Hosting

There are various varieties of shared hosting plans suitable for different web sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your web portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may have to be fulfilled.

Shared web hosting - Positive Sides

The most appropriate choice for small scale sites with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their plan, which minimizes the total cost per customer significantly. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one provider to another, delivering different quotas of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can buy an account that will provide the features your web portal indeed requires. You will not have to pay lots of cash for an account you will not make use of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web site. We, at NetService Hosting, offer an enormous array of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business web sites that even come with pre-installed script-based platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things easier. If you kick off with a less powerful plan and you require more resources, moving to a more advanced account requires just a click.

Shared web hosting - Downsides

A drawback of the shared website hosting platform is that the hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software. Given web sites, mainly web shops, need applications to be present on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software programs that do not require full server root access.

Virtual Servers and Dedicated Hosting Servers

For web pages that need root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even millions of daily visitors, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it behaves in precisely the same way.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

Both services traditionally come with root access and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, independently from the web hosting company. Much like the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting packages involve different functionalities depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A private virtual hosting server plan has guaranteed disk space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be expanded for brief spells of time provided that there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limitation is the hardware configuration it is utilizing, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A virtual private web server is simpler to manage as it ships with virtualization software, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, check statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by proficient users.

Dedicated Servers

However, some hosting companies provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement web hosting server administration operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an extra option.

Prior To Selecting...

Settling on the top hosting plan is important as it can have an influence on the stable performance of a web portal. Prior to opting for a package, weigh the pros and cons, check carefully all the requirements for the online portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-powered.
