Top Shared Hosting
There are different varieties of shared hosting plans appropriate for different web pages with regard to the resources or the shared hosting environment they demand. To select the most suitable shared hosting service for your online portal, you need to estimate what server-side software applications it needs, how many hits per day you expect at the beginning and in the future, as well as any other special requirements that may have to be answered.
Shared Web Hosting - Privileges
The most relevant alternative for small size web portals with a few hundred or several thousand visitors is a shared hosting solution. With this form of hosting, each user pays only for their account, which decreases the total price per customer drastically. There are various web hosting plans differing from one web hosting firm to another, delivering different amounts of server space and bandwidth, different mail quotas and so on. The plus is that you can purchase a plan that will provide the specs your web portal in fact requires. You will not have to pay a lot of cash for a plan you will not avail of, or end up with a small package that cannot shelter the website. We, at Depzo, offer a huge assortment of shared hosting solutions appropriate for personal or small business web pages that even include pre-activated script-based systems such as Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you start with a low grade plan and you need more resources, upgrading to a more feature-rich plan involves only a click.
Shared Website Hosting - Weak Points
A weak side of the shared website hosting environment is that the servers have some software platforms installed on them and you are unable to activate new software platforms. Given web pages, chiefly online stores, request applications to be installed on the server for them to perform, and with a shared web hosting account, you can install only software platforms that do not request server root access.
Virtual Hosting Servers and Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
For web portals that demand root access, or if your web portal has many 1000's or even millions of daily hits, what you need is a VPS hosting or a dedicated hosting. A virtual private web server is a software emulation of a dedicated solution and it behaves in exactly the same way.
VPS Hosting Servers
Both solutions generally come with root access and can be rebooted through a software tool by the client, independently from the hosting supplier. Just like the shared web hosting accounts, the VPS hosting and the dedicated web hosting server packages comprise diverse specs depending on what the hosting supplier offers. A Virtual Private Server plan contains guaranteed data space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can sometimes be boosted for brief spells of time in case there are free system resources on the physical server. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is using, and it can be revved up by altering or adding components. A private virtual server is simpler to tackle as it offers a virtualization console, which can be used to restart it, to install applications, explore stats, etc. The management of a dedicated hosting server is more elaborate, so such an account would rather be used by qualified users.
Yet, some web hosting firms offer managed dedicated web server hosting services where they perform dedicated hosting server management tasks on behalf of the customer. This can be a part of package or an additional service.
Prior To Opting...
Picking the top hosting package is essential as it can affect the proper work of a website. Before choosing a package, weigh the pros and cons, examine carefully all the preconditions for the online portal to work properly, particularly if it is script-based.
