Top Web Hosting
There are various varieties of web hosting services suitable for different web pages in terms of the resources or the web hosting environment they demand. To select the most suitable web hosting service for your online portal, you must evaluate what server-side software applications it demands, how many daily hits you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special needs that may need to be answered.
Shared website hosting - Positive Aspects
The most proper alternative for small websites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which decreases the total cost per customer significantly. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one hosting vendor to another, offering different quotas of data storage space and bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can buy an account that will provide the specs your website really demands. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not avail of, or end up with a small scale plan that cannot shelter the web page. We, at HostMe4Life, offer an enormous choice of web hosting packages suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you commence with a low-cost package and you demand more functionalities, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click of the mouse.
Shared website hosting - Downsides
A downside of the shared website hosting solution is that the hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot activate additional software applications. Specific websites, above all web shops, request applications to be installed on the web server for them to perform, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can activate only software applications that do not require complete server root access.
Virtual Private Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that request root access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of visits per day, what you require is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A Virtual Private Server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated web server and it acts in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both solutions traditionally include complete root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting plans, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting plans include different specifications depending on what the hosting supplier has to offer. A virtual server plan includes guaranteed web storage space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can occasionally be increased for short periods of time in case there are spare system resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware architecture it is making use of, and it can be revamped by altering or appending components. A private virtual hosting server is easier to manage as it ships with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install software applications, check statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a solution would rather be used by qualified users.
Still, given web hosting suppliers provide managed dedicated web server hosting solutions where they execute dedicated web hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra service.
