Top Shared Hosting
There are various types of shared hosting accounts suitable for different sites with regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To select the most optimal shared hosting service for your website, you have to reckon what server-side software programs it demands, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other special demands that may have to be fulfilled.
Shared web hosting - Perquisites
The most optimal alternative for small sized web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting package. With this type of web space hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the total price per customer significantly. There are different web hosting plans varying from one web hosting provider to another, delivering different amounts of server space and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a plan that will offer the resources your web site indeed needs. You will not have to pay a lot of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot shelter the site. We, at Secure Hosting, offer a wide selection of shared hosting plans appropriate for private or small business web sites that even include pre-activated script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you begin with a basic plan and you need more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan involves only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Sides
A downside of the shared web hosting environment is that the servers have some software applications installed on them and you cannot activate additional software programs. Certain web sites, especially online stores, require applications to be installed on the server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting environment, you can activate only software platforms that do not require root-level access.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web pages that demand server root access, or if your portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a software simulation of a dedicated machine and it works in precisely the same way.
Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers
Both environments traditionally come with root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the user, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated hosting plans come with diverse features based on what the web hosting company offers. A virtual private web server hosting plan offers guaranteed server storage, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be increased for brief periods of time on condition that there are free resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limitation is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be revved up by changing or adding components. A VPS server is easier to manipulate as it comes with a virtualization console, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, check stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web server is more elaborate, so such a plan would rather be utilized by trained customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
However, given companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they perform server administration operations on behalf of the customer. This can be included in the plan or an extra option.
