Top Website Hosting

There are different sorts of website hosting plans suitable for different web pages when it comes to the system resources or the website hosting environment they require. To select the most optimal website hosting service for your web portal, you must judge what server-side software it needs, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be met.

Shared web hosting - Pluses

The most optimal alternative for small sized web pages with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of site hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which reduces the total cost per customer noticeably. There are different web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, offering different amounts of web space and bandwidth, different electronic mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can buy an account that will include the resources your web portal indeed demands. You will not need to pay a lot for a package you will not utilize, or end up with a small package that cannot host the website. We, at Hostcheap, offer a great selection of website hosting packages suitable for private or small business portals that even come with pre-installed script-powered platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you kick off with a basic plan and you demand more functionalities, moving to a high-end plan takes only a click of the mouse.

Shared website hosting - Downsides

A negative aspect of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot install new software applications. Certain web sites, mainly web stores, require applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared hosting environment, you can install only software applications that do not request full root access.

VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers

For websites that need root access, or if your website has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you need is a VPS web hosting or a dedicated web hosting. A virtual private web server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web hosting server and it functions in absolutely the same way.

Virtual Private Servers

Both solutions normally come with root-level access and can be rebooted through a software interface by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Similar to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS web hosting and the dedicated web server hosting accounts involve diverse specifications based on what the hosting company offers. A VPS server web hosting package has guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can at times be enhanced for short spans of time if there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware configuration it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private web hosting server is easier to run as it offers a virtualization panel, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be used by competent clients.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

Yet, some hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they carry out dedicated web hosting server management assignments instead of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional upgrade.

Before You Decide...

Opting for the top hosting plan is vital as it can have an influence on the proper work of a online portal. Before settling on an account, compare the pros and cons, examine thoroughly all the requirements for the web portal to perform properly, particularly if it is script-driven.
