Best Shared Hosting
There are various sorts of shared hosting plans suitable for different sites when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To pick the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to calculate what server-side software it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may need to be covered.
Shared Web Hosting - Good Points
The most proper choice for small sized web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which decreases the overall cost per client drastically. There are various web hosting accounts differing from one company to another, providing different quotas of data space and monthly bandwidth, different mailbox account quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order a package that will provide the specifications your web page in fact needs. You will not have to pay a lot for an account you will not use, or wind up with a small size account that cannot shelter the web portal. We, at SSD Host ECWebDesigns, offer a big assortment of shared hosting packages suitable for private or small business websites that even offer pre-installed script-based platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you commence with a less powerful account and you require more resources, moving to a high-end plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared Hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared 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, especially online stores, request software applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to run, and with a shared web hosting package, you can install only software that does not demand complete root-level access.
VPS Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For websites that demand root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software emulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it performs in precisely the same manner.
Private Virtual Hosting Servers
Both services typically give full root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, independently from the hosting provider. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server hosting plans contain different specifications based on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS server web hosting package offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be boosted for brief stretches of time if there are unused resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated web server, the only limiting factor is the hardware architecture it is using, and it can be upgraded by altering or appending components. A VPS web server is easier to tackle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, examine stats, etc. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be resorted to by tech-savvy users.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting suppliers offer managed dedicated server hosting solutions where they perform dedicated server administration assignments on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an additional option.
Before You Choose...
Choosing the top hosting package is important as it can have an influence on the stable functioning of a web site. Prior to selecting an account, weigh the pros and cons, inspect carefully all the prerequisites for the web page to perform properly, especially if it is script-driven.
