Top Shared Hosting
There are various sorts of shared hosting packages suitable for different sites in regard to the resources or the shared hosting platform they need. To choose the most proper shared hosting service for your web portal, you must reckon what server-side software programs it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special requirements that may need to be covered.
Shared Website Hosting - Perks
The most proper alternative for small size online portals with several hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting solution. With this type of web hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall price per individual drastically. There are different web hosting solutions differing from one company to another, offering different quotas of server storage and traffic, different email address account quotas and so on. The good point is that you can get a plan that will provide the specs your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of money for a package you will not avail of, or wind up with a small size account that cannot accommodate the web portal. We, at Webmaster Fortress, offer an extensive selection of shared hosting accounts suitable for private or small business web pages that even include pre-installed script-driven systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render things simpler. If you kick off with a low-end account and you demand more system resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich account involves only a mouse click.
Shared web hosting - Negative Aspects
A weak side of the shared website hosting solution is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to install additional software programs. Some sites, mainly web storefronts, require applications to be installed on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared website hosting environment, you can install only software platforms that do not demand full server root access.
VPS Web Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For web portals that need full root-level access, or if your web page has many 1000's or even 1 000 000's of daily visits, what you demand is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A virtual hosting server is a virtual imitation of a dedicated server and it performs in a strictly identical manner.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both platforms normally offer root-level access and can be rebooted through a software platform by the customer, autonomously from the hosting supplier. Akin to the shared website hosting accounts, the virtual private servers and the dedicated web hosting accounts have different features depending on what the hosting provider offers. A VPS hosting server plan has guaranteed hard disk storage space, random access memory and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be enlarged for short spells of time if there are spare resources on the physical server. With a dedicated server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be configured by altering or adding components. A VPS is easier to manage as it includes virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install software applications, examine statistics, and so on. The administration of a dedicated web hosting server is more elaborate, so such a solution would rather be utilized by tech-savvy clients.
Dedicated Web Servers
Nevertheless, some web hosting companies offer managed dedicated hosting solutions where they run server administration tasks instead of the customer. This can be included in the package or an additional feature.
