Top Shared Hosting
There are different sorts of shared hosting services appropriate for different sites with regard to the system resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most relevant shared hosting service for your site, you have to access what server-side software it needs, how many daily hits you expect at the start and in the future, as well as any other specific requirements that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Website Hosting - Positive Sides
The most optimal option for small web sites with several hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web site hosting, each client pays only for their account, which diminishes the total cost per client markedly. There are various web hosting packages varying from one host to another, supplying different amounts of hard disk storage space and monthly traffic, different e-mail quotas and so on. The advantage is that you can order an account that will provide the specs your web portal actually demands. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot host the web portal. We, at ConeXioneXtendida, offer an enormous assortment of shared hosting packages suitable for personal or small business sites that even offer pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things easier. If you kick off with a less powerful package and you need more features, moving to a more advanced package takes only a click of the mouse.
Shared web hosting - Weaknesses
A weakness of the shared website hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software platforms installed on them and you cannot install new software programs. Some sites, mainly online stores, request software applications to be available on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install solely software platforms that do not request root-level access.
Private Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that request complete root access, or if your web site has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it works in absolutely the same manner.
Virtual Web Servers
Both environments traditionally include full server root access and can be restarted through a software interface by the client, autonomously from the web hosting supplier. Similar to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting accounts come with different specifications based on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS plan offers guaranteed disk storage, RAM and CPU quotas that can occasionally be extended for short spans of time if there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by changing or appending components. A VPS is easier to tackle as it involves a virtualization software platform, which can be used to reboot it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated server is more intricate, so such a package would rather be resorted to by trained customers.
Nonetheless, given companies provide managed dedicated hosting services where they execute web hosting server management assignments on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
