Top Shared Hosting
There are various kinds of shared hosting solutions appropriate for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they need. To choose the most appropriate shared hosting service for your online portal, you have to evaluate what server-side software applications it requires, how many daily visits you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific needs that may have to be satisfied.
Shared Website Hosting - Strong Points
The most relevant alternative for small sized online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which diminishes the overall cost per client considerably. There are different web hosting accounts differing from one host to another, supplying different amounts of web space and monthly bandwidth, different mail account quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase an account that will offer the resources your site really demands. You will not have to pay lots of money for a plan you will not make use of, or wind up with a small sized account that cannot host the website. We, at Hostloo, offer a big array of shared hosting solutions appropriate for private or small business pages that even provide pre-activated script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it simpler. If you begin with a basic package and you need more system resources, moving to a more feature-rich plan takes just a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Signs
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting solution is that the web hosting servers have some software installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software applications. Certain web portals, above all web stores, require software applications to be present on the hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not require full root access.
VPS Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily viewers, what you need is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual web server is a software imitation of a dedicated machine and it runs in precisely the same way.
Both solutions usually come with complete server root access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the web hosting company. Akin to the shared web hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting packages sport diverse specs depending on what the web hosting provider has to offer. A private virtual server web hosting account includes guaranteed server storage space, RAM and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be increased for brief periods of time on condition that there are unused system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is utilizing, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual private hosting server is simpler to tackle as it arrives with a virtualization software platform, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, monitor statistics, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such a package would rather be used by skilled customers.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
Still, certain hosting corporations provide managed dedicated server hosting services where they complete dedicated web hosting server management tasks on behalf of the client. This can be a part of plan or an additional feature.
