Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting accounts suitable for different web portals when it comes to the system resources or the shared hosting platform they demand. To choose the best shared hosting service for your site, you have to estimate what server-side software applications it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific demands that may need to be met.
Shared Hosting - Good Points
The most appropriate alternative for small size web sites with several hundred or several thousand viewers is a shared hosting plan. With this type of webspace hosting, each customer pays only for their plan, which diminishes the total cost per client critically. There are diverse web hosting accounts varying from one provider to another, providing different quotas of disk storage space and bandwidth, different email mailbox account quotas and so on. The benefit is that you can pay for a plan that will offer the resources your website really needs. You will not need to pay lots of money for a package you will not use, or wind up with a small scale plan that cannot host the site. We, at MEDHA4U.COM, offer a vast array of shared hosting solutions suitable for personal or small business sites that even come with pre-installed script-powered systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make it simpler. If you start with a cheaper package and you need more functionalities, moving to a more powerful package involves just a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A disadvantage of the shared web hosting platform is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate new software applications. Certain web sites, particularly online stores, require software applications to be activated on the web server for them to work, and with a shared hosting package, you can activate only software programs that do not require server root access.
Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Web Servers
For online portals that require complete root-level access, or if your web site has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of hits per day, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. A private virtual server is a virtual simulation of a dedicated web hosting server and it behaves in strictly the same way.
Private Virtual Web Servers
Both services typically provide full root-level access and can be restarted through a software platform by the customer, independently from the hosting provider. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web server packages comprise diverse functionalities depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A VPS hosting plan has guaranteed disk storage, random access memory and central processing unit usage quotas that can at times be expanded for brief stretches of time if there are spare system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limit is the hardware configuration it is availing of, and it can be revamped by changing or adding components. A VPS is easier to tackle as it comes with virtualization software, which can be utilized to restart it, to install applications, check statistics, and so on. The management of a dedicated web hosting server is more complicated, so such a package would rather be resorted to by competent customers.
Dedicated Web Servers
Still, certain hosting companies offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they carry out dedicated hosting server management operations on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an additional feature.
Prior To Deciding...
Picking the top hosting plan is essential as it can have an influence on the proper work of a site. Prior to opting for an account, compare the pros and cons, study thoroughly all the prerequisites for the online portal to run properly, particularly if it is script-based.
