Top Shared Hosting
There are different types of shared hosting solutions suitable for different websites when it comes to the resources or the shared hosting platform they require. To select the most appropriate shared hosting service for your site, you need to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many daily visits you anticipate at the beginning and in the long run, as well as any other specific requirements that may need to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Upsides
The most suitable choice for small online portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting plan. With this type of site hosting, each client pays only for their plan, which lowers the overall cost per customer considerably. There are various web hosting accounts varying from one hosting supplier to another, supplying different quotas of data storage space and bandwidth, different email quotas and so on. The plus is that you can get a plan that will include the specifications your online portal indeed needs. You will not need to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not make use of, or end up with a small account that cannot host the website. We, at Shosho Mobile, offer an extensive choice of shared hosting plans appropriate for personal or small business websites that even come with pre-installed script-driven platforms such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to render it easier. If you commence with a cheaper account and you demand more resources, upgrading to a more powerful plan requires just a mouse click.
Shared Web Hosting - Weaknesses
A weak side of the shared web hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you cannot install additional software programs. Given web portals, especially web storefronts, request applications to be activated on the web hosting server for them to function, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not need full root access.
Virtual Web Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web sites that demand full root-level access, or if your website has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of daily hits, what you require is a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. A VPS server is a software simulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in an exactly identical manner.
VPS Web Servers
Both environments normally come with root privileges and can be restarted through a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Akin to the shared website hosting packages, the virtual private servers and the dedicated server hosting packages have diverse specifications depending on what the web hosting company has to offer. A VPS web server hosting plan includes guaranteed disk space, RAM and CPU usage quotas that can sometimes be extended for brief stretches of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated web hosting server, the only limit is the hardware it is availing of, and it can be upgraded by altering or adding components. A virtual private hosting server is easier to cope with as it includes a virtualization software platform, which can be utilized to reboot it, to install applications, monitor stats, and so on. The administration of a dedicated hosting server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by skilled clients.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
Still, certain web hosting vendors offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they run dedicated web server administration procedures on behalf of the client. This can be a part of package or an extra feature.
