Top Shared Hosting
There are different kinds of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites in regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To pick the best shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to reckon what server-side software it demands, how many hits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may need to be satisfied.
Shared website hosting - Privileges
The most suitable alternative for small web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting account. With this form of web site hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per user drastically. There are diverse web hosting plans differing from one web hosting company to another, offering different amounts of web storage and monthly traffic, different mail address account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can order a package that will offer the specifications your site in fact needs. You will not have to pay plenty of money for an account you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the website. We, at Seashell HOST, offer a huge collection of shared hosting accounts appropriate for private or small business sites that even provide pre-installed script-powered platforms like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a low grade package and you require more features, upgrading to a more advanced plan requires just a click.
Shared website hosting - Weak Sides
A negative aspect of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Specific web pages, especially web shops, require applications to be present on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting package, you can activate only software platforms that do not require full root access.
Private Virtual Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For portals that need complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even millions of daily visitors, what you demand is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A private virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated web server and it acts in an absolutely identical manner.
Private Virtual Servers
Both solutions typically give full root-level access and can be restarted via a software tool by the user, autonomously from the web hosting provider. Akin to the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated server web hosting plans have diverse specifications based on what the hosting provider has to offer. A VPS web hosting server account contains guaranteed storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enhanced for brief periods of time provided that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware architecture it is availing of, and it can be revved up by altering or appending components. A VPS hosting server is simpler to tackle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by experienced users.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, given hosting vendors offer managed dedicated server web hosting services where they implement hosting server management operations instead of the customer. This can be a part of plan or an extra feature.
